DJ opportunities in Basel

Hello all,

I'm really interested to start DJ'ing in and around the Basel area as I'm there quite often (will probably move out there in a few months).
Already DJ over in the east part of London regularly and have a online radio show.

Would love to network with some promoters, DJ's etc etc or just get some good ol' advice from locals.

Cheers!!

Re: DJ opportunities in Basel

I DJ in Luzern, basically just looked up the clubs I liked and where I thought I would fit in, and wrote to them with links to mixes. A friend of a friend worked behind one of the bars and put in a good word for me, now they book me once a month.

DJs from the UK seem to have extra appeal to the Swiss, worth emphasising it, london prob more so.

Re: DJ opportunities in Basel

Hi Cyrus, thanks for the reply!
Managed to gather up a few links of venues...so it sounds like it's worth a shot!
Do you know of any nice spots around Basel? Only places I'm familiar with or have been suggested are Cargo, O2 Club and Rhypark.

Cheers

Re: DJ opportunities in Basel

Sorry, never been out in Basel, there must be a fair few posters here that do though.

What styles do you play? Maybe worth starting a thread asking where those are played in Basel to get a good idea of who to write to.

Re: DJ opportunities in Basel

I think that if you head down to the Cargo Bar here in Basel and have a chat to the guys behind the bar they may be able to point you in the right sort of direction.

Re: DJ opportunities in Basel

Cyrus - I play mostly hip-hop, b-more house, juke and dubstep. Good idea on the genre/thread front, will do.
Colin - Nice one. Will get my gf to down and get some info, as I'm in London at the mo.

Cheers guys

Having lived in Basel you can't do any worse than the crap I came across with a couple of exceptions.

Try this place though you need to get in with the crews & underground scene. Try also Density on Radio X to open doors.

Re: DJ opportunities in Basel

You could check with Hinterhof, i know they have a dj often and its a good venue. Can't think of anywhere else right now. Not sure if Süd ever has DJ's?
