Coasting : Issue 1
7 By Vanessa Handley In a SPIN Central Coast DJ Danny Simms reigns supreme behind mixing decks in nightclubs across Sydney and Gosford. Twenty-three-year-old DJ Danny Simms has been spinning discs since he was 15 and currently holds residence at Sydney venues such as Dragonfly at Kings Cross, Roxy Hotel at Parramatta, Northies at Cronulla Hotel, Carmens at Miranda Hotel, and closer to home at Blush in Gosford. Danny mixes CDs and vinyl to create his unique sound, but says dee-jaying is more complicated then it looks. “Dee-jaying isn’t just about the music. It’s about creating an atmosphere and getting the crowd moving,” he said. “You have to mix each genre accordingly. Track selection is key. There is no point playing all your big hits in the first hour.” Club-goers tell us that Danny is renowned for busting out the coolest, funkiest and ‘‘phattest’’ house tunes. Danny said the accolades, and his residency at larger clubs in Sydney, are the result of years of hard work honing his art. His advice for anyone considering dee- jaying as a career? “”Get to know your music,” he said. “You can’t set your mind onto one style of music because the really great DJs, like the Ministry of Sound guys, can mix the music up with top 40, R&B, home or electro.” ON A PLATTER: DJ Danny Simms spins the fantastic plastic at Blush night club at Gosford every Saturday night.
