Diary of a club promoter
It seems that the word is quickly spreading about this monthly column and since starting I have received nu- merous emails asking me how they get involved in the industry! Firstly club promoting is a very simple job, it does not require CV’s or a masters degree, the people who do well in the industry are the ones who have large networks or a number of friends and are generally the life and soul of a party! Anybody can become a club promoter but it is es- sential that you possess the 3 most common character- istics;
Being Proactive; This is the difference between the people that make it big and the people that fail, in pro- moting.
You don’t have to be born popular to begin with, how- ever, in order for you to be well-known, you’re going
to have to be outgoing and meet as many people as you can.
Be VERY interested in making BIG money and partying;
Ok, back to business, for those of you who are watch- ing Sky 1’s cult TV show “Pineapple Dance Studio” I had the pleasure of meeting Starman front man Andrew Stone who was “surpris- ingly” for some, a genuinely nice bloke! (Pictured), he tells me he has just signed a £6 million recording con- tract so watch this space... I went to visit the new Chi- nawhite on Winsley Street for the first time as well which I have to say looked bloody amazing, definitely a club to watch out for and you can find us there every Friday this month (strict dress code applies).

Who’s been saying what online this month? Celia names, shames and fames DJ’s mouth- ing off in cyberspace. You are what you tweet.
5 March Calvin Harris, 11.45am: ‘Trying to persuade Dizzee Rascal to do a sat nav voice.’
‘Drive Wiv Me’, the smash follow-up to ‘Dance Wiv Me’?!
9 April Calvin Harris, 2.20am: ‘Any coun-
cil’s ever consider rolling out a ‘milk-on-tap’ service, an extra tap above your sink giving you fresh, cold semi-skimmed milk?’
2.22am: ‘I’d probably pay an extra £20 pcm on top of water charges for this service. It could be piped directly from the farm. Cut out the middle man.’
2.23am: ‘P.s. It doesn’t have to be semi- skimmed, there would be an options box to tick when you sign up for the service.’
2.27am: ‘Can’t believe these fucking amaz- ing ideas actually LOSE me followers. Well fuck the lot of you, I’ll talk to myself if I have to.’
2.28am: ‘Actually I do that anyway…’
First he Created Disco, now he’s come up with this. Next stop, Dragon’s Den…
18 April Eric Prydz, 6.06am: ‘No shops
are open in Zurich and the streets are full of
camels!! What the hell is going on??’
Too many shrooms perhaps?
19 April Andy George, 6.48am: ‘No mini scotch eggs, M&S are you taking the piss out of me???’
A travesty indeed.
Sinden, 8.32am: ‘Having so much fun in the studio my tea’s gone cold.’
If only all jobs were this good!
Fake Blood, 11.18am: ‘Q: What’s the dif- ference between the Icelandic volcano and Cheryl Cole? A: The volcano is still blowing ash.’
The childish ones are always the best.
Jaymo, 11.26am: ‘No Doorly! Don’t come near me when you’ve got no pants on!’ Draw your own conclusions here.
DJ Zinc, 4.29pm: ‘Big up Terry Wogan.’
Big two fingers up at Terry Wogan.
Eric Prydz, 12.16pm: ‘Wow this guy next to me on the train smells like road kill!! I’m actually feeling sick.’
Think that’s bad? Try the central line during rush-hour.
23 April A-Trak, 11.26pm: ‘You’re all lovely people and most of you don’t smell too bad. Any Origami enthusiasts out there?’
Insert your own commentary here.
30 April Deadmau5, 7.36am: ‘Morning London, sun is shining, birds are singin... WHERE’S MY F’N BREAKFAST.... BITCH!’
Will someone please get this man some cheese?!
