I'd play a live show. Like the time Radio 1 broadcast Live at Knebworth
I'd do that

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.
add a bit of the kinks and blur as well though
- 16-07-2009 15:51
The Knife, Lacuna Coil and some Adam and the Ants! Maybe a little Black Stone Cherry too!
- 16-07-2009 15:52
i like literally EVERYTHING, so i'll play a variety of stuff like grime, funky house (skanking for the masses ), 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
- 16-07-2009 15:57
Sun Ra, Coleman/Metheny, Chopin and Miles Davis.
The nation WILL turn to Jazz, it's inevitable.
- 16-07-2009 15:58
Lots of awesome unheard bands and ofcourse some mainstream bands such as Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, Hard Fi etc.
God I love Kasabian

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

3) Man In the Mirror
4) Just Another part of me
5) Shake ya body down to the ground
6) Blame it on the boogie
7) Beat it

I'd play Radiohead for two hours, but I'd put something by Cascada on right in the middle, just to confuse the listeners
- 16-07-2009 18:15
Allowing time for talking and stuff, this: http://open.spotify.com/user/kexy/pl...XaLBtAZp9oNSqx

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
- 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
- High Contrast
- Alix Perez
- Bachelors of Science
- London Elektricity
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.
- Chase & Status
- 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
- Bad Company
- Black Sun Empire
- Concord Dawn
- DJ Hazard
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
- PS Helper

I'd piss everyone off and play a good few hours of Classical Music
- 17-07-2009 12:52
sod talking, annoying over song, 2 hours of non stop music, from your underground stuff up to the well known, the weekend stuff, or the stuff that radio 1 put on at 3am
- 17-07-2009 14:52
i'd make it (the first?) alt. rock and hardcore punk show. i'd take over the punk show slot in the night and play:
get up kids
sunny day real estate
jimmy eat world
death cab for cutie
rites of spring
at the drive-in
scary kids scaring kids
armor for sleep
basically try get people into some different, but awesome stuff. and teach people what emo really is!
