Welcome to club6400.com! Dedicated to the great music from the decade of decadence! The 80s baby!!!
Yep! I'm an 80s kid and still love the retro dance/club music from back then... mostly the late eighties ('87-'89) and early nineties as that's when I
was old enough to finally venture out and see the wonders that awaited me at the clubs of the day. Some of which I spent many hours in were D2R, D2R South (which is now El Rodeo - JUST AWFUL), Blue Planet (a fave), Power Tools, Red Square, Bayou Mama's, Peter's Wildlife, The Yucatan Liquor Stand (you can scam, lick her stand heheheee), 2826, J' Larkin's (in Clear Lake... ahhh I miss that club) and many more Houston eighties clubs.
So, in celebration of the music (and to relive my youth... LOL), I have created this site to post the listing of my music collection
in order to help those searching for names of songs and groups, and for more things to come.
ABOUT THE WEBMASTER:
The webmaster, DJ STATIC, DJ'd in the early 1990's playing mostly for college and private dance parties. His
DJ music preference is club/dance, specializing in 80s club music through today's house and trance. He's exclusively a
CD DJ due to the ease of carting around CD's and the cheaper price compared to the size and cost of vinyl. He only DJs
on rare occasion now (mostly streaming online), but if you have a party in Houston and need a DJ, shoot him an email!
UPDATE (2/12/2011): I've been getting more into laptop DJ'ing now since it is a lot easier to tote around a small external harddrive
as compared to a big box of CDs. It's easier to find tunes also. I'm still working on finding the best software for live DJing and I'm leaning towards Ableton, but it's a bitch of a learning curve. I might opt for a more hardware type option where I can plug in a harddrive and be able to still DJ like a traditional DJ does.
• Numark CDN-88 Dual CD Player with various effects including Scratch
• Rane MP22 2-channel professional mixer
• Technics SL-1200MK2 THE club standard turntable (though I no longer use thanks to my transition to CDs
• BBE 482 Sonic Maximizer - A MUST FOR GREAT SOUND!
• Alesis MidiVerb 4 For fun vocal effects
• IBM Thinkpad For laptop DJ'ing - it's much easier to transport MP3s than it is to haul a ton of CDs
NOTICE - This site is dedicated to the great club music of the 80s (affectionately known as "6400 music" in Houston). It's about the love and appreciation for the classic retro tunes of the day. It is not about the 80s club of the same name nor is this site affiliated with any clubs past or present. This is about the music and the effect it had on us all!
