Thanks fellas.

Was hoping for some first hand accounts of using plugs while DJing - I imagine if I get some it'll take a lot of adjusting to.

Thanks Smashy/Yant.

When mixing it’s all about the drums for me. It’s not the headphone volume which is a problem tbh, in some of the smaller venues I’m positioned right next to massive speakers, so it’s a constant booming in my ears all night long. keeping my headphones on as much as possible helps block some of this out, but being in that situation for so long is still fucking my ears up.

I think I’ll have to take the plunge now and get some high end or custom ear plugs, though I really should have bought some for clubbing years ago. I occasionally get phases of Tinnitus now and then so it’s only going to get worse. And I work in a studio during the day so my ears get no time off.

Anyone know if any pros are using anything?

Hi all,

Apologies if this has been covered before, but can anyone recommend anything to me that can be used while DJing to literally 'turn down' the noise without affecting the quality or losing frequency?

After 3 gigs this weekend (amounting to 21 hours of high volume exposure) I'm feeling the effects, and am seriously considering investing in some hearing protection that I can use alongside my DJ headphones. I know products exist, just looking for recommendations or experience of using them while DJing.

My fave version of Open your mind....

Good early chug there, Millsy.


I don't think the quality is great on that SC link (thanks anyway Jamie!).

Any chance of a couple of easy/obvious ones, pretty please:

Mezzomatic - Just Another Life

Chris & Kai vs Levin - Gone To Heaven

Paris & Healey - Blue

Bombdogs - I Can't Explain (Lawler Mix)

Cheers Joey.

Great find - somehow missed this when it came out.

Not quite, Dan.

Though, far worse than that... with no European football to worry about, I can see Liverpool winning it this year.

Pains me to say this, but Matt, you may be onto something there.

Things are still not well at the Bridge.

Any ideas on the 'Usura - Open Your Mind' remix/edit that Sasha played?

Was it a remix or special edit?

It's High Tide's Dan Reid under the alias Choke Hold i believe

I heard it was Alan Fiztpatricks

Thanks chaps, will keep my eyes peeled...

Just caught up - that was a tad uncomfortable.

Hindsight eh, what a wonderful thing.

All the Essential Mixes are out there, but does anyone know of (or have) any of Tongy's old radio shows knocking around?

Seeking a nostalgia fix, anything pre 2009 would be grand.


'Damn Words' is a monster of a tune.

Only went twice – Summer 06.

Nice memories of Tiefschwarz dropping this at We Love.

And then a few days later, back for the Essential Mix with Diggers & Cox.

Oh yes oh yes.

Good times.

Congrats to all concerned with 14 years at the top - I see the bantz is as strong as ever.

Thanks chaps.

Shame the mix hasn't delivered as it was an interesting concept.

I assumed it was in safe hands.

Sturridge is going in the dream team as of today - it's the only way to guarantee he stops scoring.

Works every time.

Never had a problem with Rafa tbh - Did a great job for us under tough conditions.

Some of our fans are embarrasing, at times. Shocking atmosphere again tonight.

Eden Hazard is so far away from both Ronaldo and Messi it's ridiculous.

Probably the worst I've seen him play tonight.

I'd still have Ronnie over Messi though, best player of our generation IMO - and he seems to be getting better.

Ronald's last goal tonight was immense.

Wasn't it just.
