bit of extra text maybe explaining what music planner is and/or content below would be good here
Motown / Northern Soul / Stax / Atlantic
All the classic Tamla Motown hits, RnB, Wigan Casino classics and sweet soul ballads. We can cater to those who were at the Twisted Wheel the first time around or to those who just want to hear the upfront hits.
This set leans towards the hits, but with a few that you may have heard at Blackpool Mecca back in the day.
90's Revival: the trainspotting generation
Britpop, big beat, drum and bass, hip hop, old skool and rave. Yes, the nineties revival is here! In recent years this type of set has been very popular at weddings and birthday parties.
Prohibition era swing jazz, lindy hop, jump blues, jitterbug and electro-swing.
Everything from the era of big band swing, right up to the birth of rock and roll. This type of set can work well as a theme for a whole evening or as a mood setter before a more updated set later.
This selection leans heavily in the direction of popular 80's electro pop, with a few more eclectic tracks added for the connoisseurs. This could be made more funk/soul, alternative or rock based by changing the emphasis.
Disco classics from the 70's and 80's. Including Motown Disco, Philly Groove, Loft and Paradise Garage floorfillers, Hi-Energy and underground disco edits. We can make the set a Boogie Nights party with all the well known hits, or cut to the underground with the sort of edits that Dimitri from Paris or Moodymann spin.
Urban: RnB, Hip-Hop, Garage
RnB, Hip-Hop, Street Soul. We can mix up some classics, underground and mainstream add a bit of dancehall, garage, trap, grime and afrobeats.
Ibiza : Vocal House Classics

Disco 3000: Indie/Rock
DJ set of classic indie disco songs from the eighties to present day
Rock 'n' Roll
We can stick to the classic 50's / 60's period, add a bit of rockabilly and jump blues if required, or we can take it up to the present day with tracks influenced by the sounds of Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and Co., like the list here.
Mods and Rockers
Quadrophenia relived with sixties mod and RnB, Tamla Motown, northern soul, britpop and rock and roll
Whether you want to stick to the authentic early/mid sixties period or extend to the seventies revival and britpop the choice is yours.
This brief set list adds a bit of everything mod related, plus a few for the rockers too.

A popular genre at bar nights up and down the country at the moment. The smoother end of seventies Philly, 80's soul, garage, rare groove, modern soul, neo soul and nu jazz.
Classic old skool hip hop, seventies funk breaks.

Madchester and the Hacienda
Tony Wilson may have passed on but his memory can be kept alive at your party! A mixture of Manchester baggy tunes, chicago house and old skool classics. Even if you never made it through the doors, if you're of a certain age these tunes will resonate in a way no others will.
