The lockdown mixes

DJs in the mix, Simon Mole and Brian Mole

During the Covid-19 crisis, we were put in lockdown several times. I absolutely love playing music at live events, this is why I became a full time DJ. As you can imagine, with the impossibility of DJing to happy crowds every week, this has been very difficult for me and many of my colleagues. Since March 2020, I have not been able to feed my passion for DJing, and my business has been hit by lots of my lovely couples cancelling and continually postponing their weddings. In fact, I can’t even begin to describe how much this hurts.

Every cloud…

On the 3rd lockdown shortly after Xmas 2020, my son Simon returned from Uni, and challenged me to DJ live on Saturday nights. My daughter Louise aka Messy Mole also got the challenge to dress the set, and so began an extraordinarily lifting experience for all of us.

Now, it has to be said that this is not necessarily the music I would play as a wedding DJ (this is my core business which I dearly love and miss currently), but I hope you have fun listening. Essentially, this is a mix of dance classics, house, drum & bass, with a few surprises thrown in. Simon and I take turns either 3 tracks each or a longer mix. No microphones, and it’s all for fun.

Simon and I will continue to run these every Saturday night at 7pm UK time, and would really appreciate if you joined us. Occasionally, it’ll just be Brian as Simon goes back to Uni.

The final lockdown mix, 15th May 2021:

This is the last in the series of live lockdown mixes that I have performed during the winter/spring 2021 period. As lockdown eases, I have to return to my best ever job, being a wedding DJ, and there is a lot of work to prepare, so it’s goodbye from me!

To all that have joined us live or listened in, THANK YOU. I can’t begin to tell you how much appreciated this has been. #prouddad

With Love, The Moles x
