Party DJ in Beckenham, Kent – Club DJ Hire
Recently we were contacted by Joe who was looking for a professional party & club DJ for his 30th birthday. Joe wanted a state of the art lighting and sound system with special effects and perfectly mixed music. Our platinum DJ package was the natural option for the event at Club Langley in Beckenham.
Joe expressed the importance of superior sound and lighting quality with a diverse DJ that could mix multiple Genres of music.
The Installation Process:
The Platinum DJ Package includes a considerable amount of lighting and sound which needs to be installed. Joe also opted for a wireless uplighter upgrade so that no cables needed to be run into the uplighters. The uplighters can be controlled wirelessly and produce a fantastic effect using lighting software.
Two vertical smoke machines which fire a jet of smoke surrounded by LED lights are used in this package. The smoke machines produce a co2 style effect which looks like jets of fire when set to red. It is important to check that the venue allow the use of smoke machines as not every venue does. If the smoke machines cannot be used this also restricts the effect of the lasers, meaning they must be substituted for other fixtures.
All of the lighting equipment used is run into a piece of software called Avolites Titan One, this allows full DMX lighting programming.
We programmed several different scenes and sequences that worked well and even set the lights to be mapped onto the venue’s mirror balls.
Our DJ systems integrate through a Pioneer DJ controller and into a professional Mixer before going into the speakers. This process provides crystal clear sound quality with full control. We also use Sure, Beyerdynamic & Sennheiser microphones for incredible speech quality.
If the venue has sound limiters this package may not be suitable. We will however always work to sound restrictions a venue has in place with decibel readers. If a venue has noise restrictions it may be worth opting for a smaller DJ hire package.
After installing of of the sound and lighting equipment we have a full technical run through. This includes checking all mixing equipment, audio inputs and microphones. Every venue has different restrictions and parameters to bear in mind. For this reason it is extremely important to tailor the sound and setup to the venue.
Our sound checks were seamless and as our client Joe was at the venue this allowed him to witness the system in action before the event.
We started the night with chilled lounge and cafe del mar classics to set the mood. These played at a low-level to allow guests to chat freely upon arrival. As the night moved on we incorporated all of the various genres on Joe’s playlist. Our DJ mixed a range of genres and styles including Hip Hop & R&B Classics, Garage, House and of course some well known party classics.
Club langley’s main hall is a large room and therefore requires a large number of guests to fill it. Joe had well over 150 guests, many of which like Joe were music enthusiasts. This really helped to add to the atmosphere on the night.
From start to finish the room had an incredible atmosphere. Several guests complimented our staff on the music, sound and lighting system.
