    “I wanna go Crazy” by David Guetta ft. Will.I.Am, at about 2:35 in the song it has a countdown from 10..but it doesn’t correspond with an actual 10 second countdown…maybe someone could figure a way to either A. speed up the BPM at that part to correspond with the countdown, or B. mix with another countdown and just use the drop after Guetta’s countdown, cause that song (as i’ve learned) can really get a party going. Perfect for bringing in the new year. Know this post is a little late…but was just doing some research and came across this blog.

    hope you enjoy.
    party on.

    @eflynn – thanks man, was gonna make one similar just now but you saved me the time! Thanks a bunch! Great article too, I’ve never done a NYE set/drop before so it’s good to have these tips.
    Now what to drop at 0001…the options!

    Hi,
    I made a bunch of NYE countdown edits including:
    Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand
    Dirty Dancing – Be my Baby
    Cee Lo – Fuck You
    Some Brass Track
    and
    The Prodigy Funky Shit

    All have some additional excitement using filters or other things.
    It should cover all kinds of nights.

    Lol at the dutch anthem dropped by Fat man scoop..!

  • http://imatool.com dick walz.

    just flop your cock on the mixer at midnight and you will be a rock star……or should i say cock star!?!?

  • Krotti

    Daft Punk – One More Time before the countdown!

  • Anonymous

    Great heads up!

  • Anonymous

    …the best NYE midnight drop as the countdown hits “one” was the airscape mix of the vengaboys (yes, vengaboys)’s “Kiss” at hunka bunka, dj’d by richie santana NYE 2001…

    • Marshallbrown319

      LOL……..Funny, I was there too and I remember that (I dont know how, but…..)

    This is my 4th NYE DJ Gig and first one using a controller. Really looking forward to how people respond this year.

    Here is a Countdown sample I made that I’m gonna drop. Feel free to grab it if it’s to your liking.

  • Reese

    despite being NYE, you shouldnt get to caught up on the cheese factor as quite often playing the original tune from which a cheesy track was sampled works even better. E.g. Boney M – Gotta Go Home, kills it over Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand if timed correctly.

    P.S – WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BEPs, TAKE IT BACK TO OL HIP HOP DAYS

  • DJ Sir Andy (AKA: DJ Android)

    Great tips! Will be using the majority of them 4 my NYE gig. Been trying to find a usable version of Auld Lang Syne, and since I couldn’t, I made a re-edit with a semi usable version I found mixed with 2 remixes of Like a G6. Check it out and tell me if this would work for droppin’ @ midnight or not. Thanks DJTT!

    I used some of your tips from previous years and I got to play at a hotel’s NYE party in Cancun, and now I’ll play there for the second time. Thanks Ean and DTT!

  • MrBlenderson

    Definitely agree with announcing the countdown ahead of time. Also, make sure that whoever is MCing the countdown (if it’s not you) is looking at the same clock you are. My first NYE gig was 3 years ago and i had a great countdown record all cued up and started it right on time only to have the party MC start the “official” countdown halfway through mine. And that track you drop after the countdown had better be BANGIN and something that people know like the back of their hand.

    yes, only dry heaves and retching.

  • La Quenepa

    I always find a way to have sex on midnight. Its a 6 year tradition…

  • http://www.nightnoises.com Paul Benjamin

    How is Club Killers anything but 12/5 for cheese?

    I usually mess up NYE by rushing round to a million clubs trying to see everyone and wind up celebrating midnight in a cab somewhere random in Tokyo…

  • http://www.whitefolksgetcrunk.com DJ Real Juicy

    Thanks, nice write up. Love the cheese rating.

  • Max

    NYE countdowns are really cheesy no? never saw that in a regular NYE european party

  • Jonathan Blake

    Sound advice – thank you. 1st NYE gig – nervous as hell.
    Dropping the Joris Voorn remix of Dosem’s “Beach Kisses” just before 12 – hopefully the trumpets will peak @ 12.
    Spine-tingling.
    (PS – ‘copious drinking’ will not happen in the DJ booth – in fact none @ all – need to stay sharp

    cant find any words :D

  • The Bong Squad

    We are playing all sorts in our new years set! It is in an underground music club but still we like to keep the cheese factor in as a lot of people who don’t regularly attend, are attending!

    We have and Ali G dubstep song (Chicken Dippaz, I think “/), a garage remix of whip my hair – willow and all sorts! Should be a good night! :)

  • http://soundcloud.com/igotbatwings batwings

    I couldn’t agree with Andreas more. I took this recently and made it 6/5 cheesy just to put extra nails in the coffin: http://soundcloud.com/igotbatwings/the-time-for-reals-final

  • malzfreund

    Interesting how New Years traditions differ across the globe. If I look at the NYE ’10 clubbing guides for Europe on Resident Advisor, roughly half the parties start after midnight. Most people I know drink their champagne at a private party and don’t go out clubbing until sometime between 1am – 5am.

    Anyways, without doubt, it’s been a good year for DJTT. So Happy New Year and keep up the good work!
