    I'd kick off with The Strokes, have a bit of Springsteen, and The Cure in there. A bit of Katy Perry for the girls and I'd add The Killers in there too. towards the end I'd have The Beatles and Hendrix, then I'd finish off with a bit of Led Zeppelin.
    i would tune in to that (Y)
    add a bit of the kinks and blur as well though

    i like literally EVERYTHING, so i'll play a variety of stuff like grime, funky house (skanking for the masses :cool:), acoustic stuff, indie, pop rock, screamo, hip hop
    i don't like it when people stick to just one genre of music, like open your mind, you never know, you might end up liking the stuff you thought you hated :p:

    The nation WILL turn to Jazz, it's inevitable.

    Some indie - bring in some foals, block party and Arctic, Razorlight and The Kooks (their earlier stuff, not the recent)

    2) P.Y.T
    3) Man In the Mirror
    4) Just Another part of me
    5) Shake ya body down to the ground

    10) Few grimeski tunes
    11) Few indie tunes
    12) Finish off with Thriller - full version

    I'd play Radiohead for two hours, but I'd put something by Cascada on right in the middle, just to confuse the listeners :music:

    Some acoustic (Frank Turner?), followed by some rock (Led Zeppelin?), a bit of modern chart music (if it's any good), some classics (Beatles maybe? Or AC/DC). Take a request, end with a random tune that will stay in people's heads.

    All of the tracks must be good though. None of this Dizzee Rascal or Kings of Leon ****.

    For my usual sets i start of with less intense music and gradually get it harder and faster as the night continues.
    So i would probably start of with some intelligent drum and bass which just creates a nice light atmosphere, not much intensity or adrenaline, more passion based. Perfect for getting people into the mood, also goes great at raves when people at the stage start dropping/blazing.
    - LTJ Bukem
    - Blu Mar Ten
    - Photek
    - Klute
    - Omnio Trio
    - Future Dub quartet
    Then i would use artists such as high contrast to bridge the set into some more liquidy dnb. Most people by now will be starting to come up = Get all loved up due to our lovely friend E. So some passionate music that puts you on cloud 9 would be the vinyls i would use
    - Logistics
    - High Contrast
    - Laos
    - Alix Perez
    - Bachelors of Science
    - Lenzman
    - London Elektricity
    - Nutone

    By now most people would be rocking the tunes, so i would up the intensity creating a more bassy 4/4 orientated atmosphere. Artists such as Blame are great for this as they are more intense but still have that liquidy vibe.
    - Blame
    - Netsky
    - b-complex
    - Chase & Status
    - Dirtyphonics
    - Moving Fusion
    - Ram triology

    Next up when its peaking time i would drop in some much darker grimy drum n bass. Change the atmosphere big time, make it dirtier, darker and more dangerous :cool:
    - Noisia
    - Bad Company
    - Dieselboy
    - Black Sun Empire
    - Concord Dawn
    - Calyx
    - DJ Hazard
    - Hype
    - Muffler
    - Raiden
    - lymwax

    Then i would probably end up putting it into some dubstep, then wind it down into dub for the end of the night.

    * Enough for about 6 hours of music here, i kinda went over the top, planning my next night
