18th birthday party fun

This is the ultimate playlist for an 18th Birthday Party! Although I do believe we will look back at this list in 20 years time and wonder what on earth we were thinking with loving some of these tracks!

The booking came from social media, after the part boy requested good DJ’s for an 18th birthday party. I was very lucky to be tagged time and time again and so the party boy then got in touch. After a bit of a chat it turns out he had heard me before as he worked in Topshop – the shop I had provided a day of music for 2 or 3 years ago! After ensuring I was fully down with all things trap, d&b and house music he was keen to book. I was super excited about this as I don’t often get the chance to play a night of this type of music! His friends, and he, let me know their music loves to ensure the night was fully tailored to them. After looking at the requests I knew we were in for a fun night! The online booking portal is included in all bookings with me. Including a guest request log in too!

The venue – Goals, Norwich was a great place for the 18th birthday party. The party room has a bar, the staff had sorted a USB of photos to be displayed during the evening, and the room was a great size with seating for non dancers, or those needing to rest their feet and voices!

I’m known for my versatility – and if you’ve read my previous wedding playlist you’ll get an idea of why people say this (and why I also promote myself as one of the most versatile DJ’s!). This party was no different on the night either.

The playlist below is displayed in the order they were played and mixed in. At some points of the night I had all 4 decks playing which kept me on my toes and the dance floor bouncing. The start of the night was upbeat background music which I haven’t included below. The night started fully at around 8.45pm when most of the guests had arrived.

It’s not always easy to get a group of 17-19 year olds to dance at a party but with the right music choices played at the right time certainly helps!
And as I say often – there are lots of ace DJ’s in and around Norwich. There are lots of ace tracks for parties. It’s up to you who you feel would put your night together in the way you wish and plenty of communication leading up to your event, and on the night is key to ensure your night goes exactly as you wish!
