Kicked Off the Decks - Perc
Reported by News Editor
Submitted 22-06-12 17:06
“I have never been kicked off the decks but have had promoters vanish on me mid-set leaving me to deal with furious venue owners. Not sure if that is applicable for this, but if so then I'd be happy to contribute.”
As well as being one of the most popular and acclaimed DJs and artists in industrial techno, British producer Perc is also a great writer and while he’s yet to be ordered off the decks like EDM sensation Calvin Harris, he’s had more than a few run-ins with dodgy promoters. In his own words he recalls one particular night in a disco in the North of England when he found himself being stopped
halfway through his set . . .
“The venue was one I had never heard of and upon asking some friends still residing in the city it appeared to be the sticky-carpeted, chrome and neon style pickup joint that rarely works as a venue for decent underground music.
When I arrived I felt that feeling that all DJs will know when you walk through the doors and the club, which the promoter had assured you would be packed, was, of course, empty. To be honest, it did fill up a bit through the night but most people were there to hook up with members of the opposite sex and enjoy the heavily reduced and watered down lager from the plastic pint pots provided.
I was due to play the last two hours of the night and about 45 minutes into my set, friends of the promoters started clearing the DJ booth from around me. I was playing from a laptop, so the CDJs and vinyl decks were cleared as I played. It turns out these were borrowed from a friend but not hired and the friend knew something that made him nervous about leaving them plugged up.
The next thing I know I have the venue owner coming into the booth, initially asking me where the promoter was and secondly who was going to pay for the venue hire.
In the end the night finished about 50 minutes early, I had to assure the now furious venue manager that I was not the promoter nor liable for any of the costs of the night. Quickly I packed up my equipment and left the venue, having not been paid anything apart from a tiny deposit a week before the gig.
So I wandered up the street to check into my hotel. Of course there was no hotel booking and a night waiting for the station to open awaited me. In the end I spoke to some passing friends of the promoter and ended up at a typical '5 mates crouched around the coffee table' after party. 9am and my train back to London could not come soon enough.”
