Dadcast 9: Production Unit – Mature Cheddar

A stinky pile of wedding cheese yesterday

The day every DJ dreads has finally come: someone has asked you to play at their wedding. The question is, how do you deal with it?

Some simply refuse point blank. Rude, but probably wise. Others take the plunge and treat it like a normal gig. This can work, depending on the crowd, but it’s risky, and you’re going to have a battle on your hands fending off furious requests for Black Eyed Peas . It can be quite shocking how angry Cheryl Cole fans get when you tell them you dont have any Cheryl Cole. And they will not believe you either.


Other DJs fully embrace the wedding schtick and do what is expected. It can pay well – much better than proper techno DJing. But it’s degrading. It’s a lot like being a sex worker. Sometimes you have to put up with a dirty old man who hasn’t had a bath in weeks. This is what it feels like to play David Guetta tunes.

There are moments of hilarity, such as the time a young lady asked us ‘Have you no got anything funky?’ while we were playing James Brown.

And if you’re based around Glasgow it means witnessing The Slosh – a strangely beautiful line-dancing tradition from the 70s carried out exclusively by middle aged women that resembles a David Lynch dream sequence.

Another solution to the wedding problem is to take the middle ground – the Third Way – remain true to your priniciples, but play stuff that people might recognise. This is what Techno Dad Production Unit (aka Dave from Glasgow’s Marcia Blaine) has done here. Quality cheese. None of your bright orange processed slices. Maybe the odd touch of Dairylea in places.

    Yep – I fall squarely into the ‘sex worker’ category! I’ve become numb to the degradation and filth now – waking up in the morning with David Guetta stains on my shirt and crusted YMCA in my hair. We don’t get The Slosh down in England unfortunately but I have on more than one occasion instigated the ‘Oops Up Side Your Head’ thing were everyone sits on the floor in a line. And I’ve Do Do Do Done ‘The Conga’. The shame…

  2. Dan says:

    Quick update – I played 5 David Guetta tunes tonight.

    Is it all over my face?

    Yes, I was the willing subject of a David Gukkake
