1.) The vinyl playback option (record decks and accompanying vinyl) is no longer a standard component of the show (due to weight!) If vinyl playback is required for your event please ensure this is specified at time of booking. Also see below about supported media.

2.) Not all venues accept the use of smoke machines, this will only be available venue-permitting.

3.) Depending on event not all equipment will necessarily be available / used (shows that require sound playback only for instance).

Supported Media

Output is currently sourced from uncompressed digital audio files (same quality as CD), these are NOT MP3 files but a sonically superior format called FLAC. Should you require playback of a CD this can be accommodated on the day. If you would like playback from another media format such as cassette tape, vinyl etc please discuss prior to the event. Use of the recording should be possible to achieve as long as access to the media is provided at least 1 week prior to the event.
