    I'm having the same problem, but I'm coming to the
    completely opposite conclusion. On one of my nights, my
    partner and I spin mostly deep, soulful, jazzy house, as
    well as dipping into funk, disco, broken beat, and anything
    else we happen to be digging at the moment -- Basically, a
    'house' night. Problem is, round these parts, mention
    house and people usually get instantly turned off, thinking
    it's gonna be those 'monotonous beats', hard house, prog
    house, etc. -- unless of course, they're into that... In
    which case, they're probably not going to be too happy with
    what we're spinning. Whatever, I'm sick of discussing
    'genres', it's all music, good or bad. Mind you, the other
    night, we were spinning a killer set (I thought) of soulful
    house, the dance floor was going off, and then someone came
    up to the booth and requested that we play in her words,
    some 'good music'. Just can't please everyone, I guess.
