-You are unlikely to hear a song less than 5 years old. Apart from Q-Tip’s new record of course.

-Conversations such as the following:

Genuinely nice guy: So how you hear about this night?
Pretentious “scene” girl : I booked Benji B
Confused genuinely nice guy: So… you booked him for this night?
Pretentious “scene” girl: No. But I booked him once.
Genuinely nice guy: Well Done.

– Chubby Mixed race girls with big hair. So much potential… yet so unattractive.

– People going mad when Dead Prez “Hip-Hop” is played. We get it. You love Hip-hop. We at a hip-hop night too.

– People squealing all surpised when “Award Tour” or “Electric relaxation” drops. Didn’t you already play it twice in the house before leaving for the club? Did you not just hear the whole Q-tip album being played. TWICE?!??!

– Wankers who don’t dance because they claim the DJ is “anthem Bashing”.

– Beautiful women who rush to the dancefloor when A-cyde drops some 808’s Kanye but quickly disappear when it’s followed up with M.O.P’s “How about some hardcore”.

– Wordy Internet blog/ Facebook “press releases”. (especially those proclaiming non pretentiousness, written by “scene” girl types – see above)

– Dubstep.

– It’s probably in Fucking Shoreditch.
