Rock/Motown/Pop/Funk/Old School Classics.   After a 6 month or so hiatus, I'm back with a bang... Well, a different sound at least... Welcome to Rod's House Party. This was a 5 hour set I did recently for a private party in the upper reaches of North Vancouver at a very nice house indeed. The crowd was a bit older and wanted some classics so I came up with the following playlist: (stay tuned for part 2)   George Baker - Little Green Bag, Cream - Sunshine Of Your Love, The Who - My Generation, Creedance Clearwater Revival - Bad Moon Rising, The Contours - Do You Love Me, The Jackson 5 - I Want You Back, Commodores - Machine Gun, Thelma Houston - Don't Leave Me This Way, Commodores - Brick House, Diana Ross - I'm Coming Out, Marvin Gaye - Got To Give It Up, Robin Thicke & Pharrell Williams - Blurred Lines, Mark Ronson - Uptown Funk (feat. Bruno Mars), Pharrell Williams - Happy (DnB Bootleg) (Radio Record), Rick James - Super Freak, MC Hammer - You Can't Touch This

Welcome to MrVanDigital

I'm MrVanDigital, kinda a play on words for the big Dutch DJs + where I live in Vancouver.

I've been Djing over half my life and this includes vinyl setups as you can see from the picture of me in Japan back in 2005. Since then I've been through CDJs and controllers to standalones. Now my weapon of choice is the Denon DJ Prime 4.

Mixes on this site showcase this journey (if you go all the way back to episode 1). They are mainly studio / bedroom mixes but there are a lot of live mixes in there too from boat parties to wedding events to cocktail bars. 

I've played a bunch of nights in Lancaster, Manchester, Niigata, Vancouver but to be honest I'm at my best and enjoying crafting playlists and mixes when I'm at home. 

Like Daft Punk on the track 'Teachers', big shout out to Sasha, Lee Burridge, Jody Wisternoff, DJ Yoda, DJ Andy Smith, Tiga, Thomas Bangalter, Laurent Garnier, CJ Bolland... You're all in my house.
