Let me tell you a little story..
Here's a little mixtape I was asked to do a while ago. A guy sent a shout out on Facebook that whoever could mix Next Hype, Freak etc would get a chance to be a 'resident' DJ in his new booking agency. So I did the mix, took time that it sounded awesome (this was a while ago now). I was welcomed onto the team!
The team actually boiled down to a guy about my age. I was requested to do an under-18s night in Stroud, which happened to be my first paid gig ever. I got several texts that night, that essentially told me that he wasn't going to be there at all. Unfazed, I travelled over.
When I arrived I met the club owner (legend), set up my gear and waited for the inevitable crowd of under 18s. I played for about an hour and a half, and get this: THREE people arrived. I was on my own, the night was a flop, and I spent the rest of it watching Eastenders over chips with the club owner and bouncers.
Moral: GET A FUCKING CONTRACT PEOPLE. Prick.
