You are Not a real Dj If you Dj with Windows Media Player and a Guitar Amp...

You've never completely shit the bed on a mix live for a crowd.

You use ipods

There is no mixer in front of you

You've never had your hands on vinyl

80% of your playlist can be found on crooklyn clan

If you actually think "girls love dj's"

If you played "I'm on a boat" because you think it's a hot song

If you think a dj that does not use vinyl is not as good as someone who does

If you do not know what key means

If you've never seen a vid of another dj that made you want to quit so bad that 5 mins later you were on the decks trying to do that shit!

technically no... key has to do with music. Key has no effect on the dj's technical skills. A dj can spend a entire night and never mix in key and 99.99999% of that crowd will never skip a beat because most of them do not care. A real dj mixes in key because he dj's for the music, for the fun of entertaining a crowd. Oh and before there was the "celebrity dj" that dj's/promotes/produces there were real dj's that used whatever they could... there was no such thing dvs or even a thought there of.... the mp3 was the dream of a dream... people recorded sets to a tape and a computer was the size of a bank vault.... 99% of those guys were known as dj(insert name here)

if you havent rode a bike for 50 miles just to buy 5 records( i did that a couple times from orange county to LA record shops) this was back in the 80s.

if you never carried a car full of milk crates with vinyl to the next party ;)

if you never got in a fist fight with another dj trying to hog the dj system..true story (1987) that was hardcore

if you never got a chance to spin vinyl

if you never been in a dj battle of course spinning vinyl at a back yard party

many many more i can think of but im done...next

before the days of internet, I had just gotten my first truck and didn't know my way around town (other than riding the bus)

So, I waited near the bus stop in my new Mazda and followed the bus until he reached Star Records. I took forever, but it was better than riding IN the bus.

Also, if you don't know what songs are good or new unless they play them on the radio.

You pre load scratch sounds into your Virtual dj so you can play them and drop a new track in (true story, I actually saw this)

You download all your music on limewire

You steal another Dj's name, drops, or mixes and claim them as your own.

As in, somebody just playing Scratch sounds in full while they put the next track on?
Dj Bacik 12:53 AM - 28 June, 2010
He had a playlist going so when the scracth sounds came on it already loaded the next track on the free deck and started to play it. It was awful. He only had 4 different scratch sounds so eventually people could tell.

Just let a song play through. Like say they let "I Gotta Feeling" - Black Eyed Peas the full time and they don't scratch, beatmatch, or mess with it in any way. then let it finish and just bring in another song. Like a Radio DJ

So you're not really concerned with them playing a DJ "Edit", vs. them just letting a song play all the way through...

Because I play "regular" records all the time.

You made it seem like a DJ HAD to play an "Edit" or some type fo Remixed version to qualify...whilst I never play DJ "edits", or at least, not that I know of, assuming they are those "Extended Intro/Outro" things...

Damn thats funny! I recently played a house party where the other DJ was just using cdjs to play his 20 minute pre recorded virtual dj mixes and when it almost ended backspin into the next one on the other deck. So when I went on next using serato he was asking me "where is the autosync button on here?" I wanted to slap him!

You're also not a real DJ if you can't spin without Serato.

Spun a gig one night where the DJ before me had a computer malfunction and decided to not spin despite having 3 djs offer for him to use their CD's. And he couldn't use the "I don't know their music" because it was all mainstream electro/house/edm stuff.

I know, but I wasn't, I'm trying to pretend to be a DJ without anybody noticing it :oP. So far it worked out pretty well both on the forum and in front of the crowd.
This Watchwww.youtube.com is Beats 'n Pieces, it's one of the first singles of Coldcut in 1987. Revolutionary in the areas of sampling, producing and DJ'ing since they made a fantastic music-collage of "beats" and "pieces" (they even do this fantastic "peter and the wolf" with a phat break at the end), ... and they were able to perform this live as well. A true hiphop track ahead of it's time and one of the favourites that deformed my taste in music.

But no, I never heard of the term "bits and pieces" related to DJ'ing (at least not here in Belgium), unless you're referring to all the "bits and pieces" that come with your cartridge when you're trying to install it :o). I'm intrigued... Make me a real DJ Dan! :o)
MusicDan 6:51 PM - 28 June, 2010
I see. Bit's and Pieces was a mix of songs that was on a single back in the late 80's from the previous year. Somewhat of a collage of music. I remember having at least 3 or 4 of those vinyls back in the day. I am going to check and see if I still have them.

I've been a massive Coldcut fan for ages so that was my first thought - he'd spelt it wrong.

But then I remembered back when I was a kid, here in the UK (the dreadful) radio1 used to do summer roadshows and they did a quiz called bits and pieces.

Anyways... You aint no DJ if the smell of vinyl doesn't give you just a little thrill.

Nah, back in 1986 a company called Bit's and Pieces was the first to take small samples and mix it together for a 10 maybe 14 min mix. on the other side, would give you all the Bit's and Peices that made up the Mix. I had almost every Album. It came out once a year. but 1991 was the only year it had 2. I wish i ex did not do me wrong, I would of MP3 them and up loaded them to all. But If anyone know how to get them, I would pay $50 per Vinyl. I think there was 12 total. I can't remember, It was a long time ago.

I had an experience with that. A DJ in Destin (a female who shall remain nameless) was kicking it with my boy and agreed to come back to the house. There we just had vinyl with a regular mixer. Until she got to the house she was telling us "I'm going to school you guys. You got nothing on me...blah blah blah". Long story short she got to the house and first thing she asked was. "You don't have cd's or a beatcounter?" then insisted she didn't all of the sudden "feel well". This really was one of those moments of "yeah you're not a real DJ" came to mind. If you don't know where your art has been (vinyl w/ a two channel basic mixer from the days) then how do you know where you're going? KNOW YOUR ROOTS! OH and if you can't spin vinyl, on a mixer without a beat counter, and beatmatch...you're NOT a DJ.

You're not a real DJ if you contribute to this thread. You're not a real DJ if you're worried about other DJ's. If you were a real DJ, you'd be too busy to even bother with this thread.

I just contributed so I'm not a real DJ. I'm cool with that. I love turntables..... I love vinyl.... I love scratching.... I love mixing.... but I don't love catering to crowds and being their personal plaything. I like to play music they wouldn't like otherwise unless I delivered it to them in a way that they wouldn't realize they were hearing unless I gave it to them my way....

But thats not what djing is now..... Djing now is about playing what the crowd wants and being safe. So.... yup. I'm not a real DJ. I'm what a DJ use to be ;)

+1: Damn right! Safe like double bagging it before banging a crack whore. I, too, am what a DJ used to be! Back in the day, you went to a party, club, event, to hear NEW & DIFFERENT stuff, stuff you wouldn't hear any where else. Back when DJ's would tear the labels off of joints, so you didn't know what they were and couldn't "bite". Nowadays, you play something new or different in your set, and you will clear the floor. If they have not heard it umpteen times before, it will kill your vibe. However, every city I have lived in, always has a venue that has a NO REQUEST, DJ Night, dedicated to the DJ's, and you can detox from the over-commercialization of music and support your local DJ's.

I have a milk carton with old LP cases with about a 12 Serato Time Code Vinyls. The rest are my old LPs that I don't play. Just there for display and to fill up space.

My routine.....

Pretend like I don't have a laptop and give the illusion by replace a time code vinyl with another time code vinyl when I get ready to put in the next song.....

People see me from the dance floor just changing vinyl after vinyl and think that I am doing this for real.

At the end of the night I get paid and I go home and do it over again until the weekend is over.... And then I go to my day job for the week until its time for the weekend again....

Not at all..... But I just wanna be different..... Because here in the Islands (West Indies), just about EVERYONE that calls themselves a DJ uses Virtual DJ. Its annoying. When Virtual DJ came out, everyone here downloaded it and called themselves DJ over night... smh.

Where I play there is usually about 5 DJs, and mic men that pile the stage. About 4 laptops right next to each other. Most don't even bother getting a controller. They just DJ with the laptop alone and all the audio comes out of that little phone jack and they wonder why there sound quality sounds like $h!t....

People look up, they see me, they see 2 turntables, a mixer, and vinyl and I am not hunched over a computer screen pushing buttons. They take notice and they know me as the DJ that does things different.

I've gotten many other gigs off island after I started that trend because its different. And since I've been doing it, more of the younger DJs are now starting to get controllers so it seems like they are actually doing work. Some ever upgraded from VDJ to Itch. One went and saved up for a CDJ and a SL1. So I feel that somehow I am making a difference.

I will make a statement though. Even though VDJ may be a good and cost efficent tool. I don't like it....

Now I will say this.... Here on St Croix..... 9/10 DJs use VDJ.... The rest Use Itch, and Scratch Live..... Some select few use CDs.....

While having sex with music in the background, I go to the tempo of the track, build speed with the snare roll and bust a nut after the white noise sweep finally drops to the first bass note.

What?

In all seriousness, i can't deny beat matching in the car and other obscure times mentioned above. I was on the tredmill that had one of those heart rate meters at the gym, and i thought it would be a good invention to hook up headphones to the treadmill and have music playing at the same bpm as your heart rate.

technically no... key has to do with music. Key has no effect on the dj's technical skills. A dj can spend a entire night and never mix in key and 99.99999% of that crowd will never skip a beat because most of them do not care. A real dj mixes in key because he dj's for the music, for the fun of entertaining a crowd. Oh and before there was the "celebrity dj" that dj's/promotes/produces there were real dj's that used whatever they could... there was no such thing dvs or even a thought there of.... the mp3 was the dream of a dream... people recorded sets to a tape and a computer was the size of a bank vault.... 99% of those guys were known as dj(insert name here)

My 7506 are dope. I've had to buy a pair of replacement ear pads, but other than that they work great. I've had this pair for over 2 years now, and that a long time for headphones. I also have a pair of Senhiesers but one ear died on them so I keep them in the car as my emergency back up pair.

I think it depends on the situation, if your standing behind the decks acting like its yor mix NO its not ok. If its the begining of the night noones there and your ar the bar or walking around checking sound i dont really think it matters much. Ive acutually promoted a good # of DJs on here when people ask whats playing while im eating before a gig (i love working at a place with a restraunt LOL) and ill burn em the cd and send em on their way

You see, you guys aren't understandin. I don't want to sit there doin nothing in the DJ booth or act like I'm doin something, so I'd rather mix a mix live than play a pre-recorded mix.

youll understand when your old enough to be in a DJ booth, i wasnt saying stand in the booth and not mix, early in the night theres plenty you can be doing before people get there. After i get things set up for music i need to walk around make sure all the speakers are hooked up and sounding right, make sure all the lights and fog machines are set up, go holla atthe manager and bartenders make sure everyones on the same page, makin some last minute calls to people to get people comming up there ect ect ect. I love mixin as much as the next time but when its 8 or 9 and noones there and i know im going to be goin hard till at least 4am im not tryin be in the booth wastin energy....besides its no fun to jesus pose when noones there to see you LOL

So no noobs with there $3000.00 dj system, that don't no how to mix, can play a prerecorded mix from Bad Boy Bill or another dj on there first party or gig... never know people are ghetto now a days......especially with these digital files you can do a lot with them...

Too Funny, I don't Use Other Dj's Mixes. I do look at other DJ Playlist, and see what is Good, and maybe use 3 songs back to back to mix it. I do it, just like when I was like 16 year old, back in the days listen to the Radio With Red Alert in New York, and when I heard a mix that was killer, I would try to do it. Know I just listen to Other DJ Mixes to learn what is new, so I can keep it fresh. Sorry to say I have not been listen to many mixes. But I look at playlist to see.

I've done it a couple of times to open the night.

A couple of places I've played wouldn't get busy (by busy, I mean more than 10 people) until maybe 90-120 minutes after opening, so I've put on other DJ mixes for the first hour or so.

Sometimes to just pass the time, but mostly mixes I want to listen to loud or haven't had the chance to.

e.g. Erol Alkans Disco 3000 podcast, various magazine CDs.

Could never put a DJ's mix on and pass it off as my own though

e.g. Peter Hook

just depends on what level you are as a dj. Headliners of course do not take request... that's why they're HEADLINERS -- they have hundreds and even thousands of people that follows 'em to hear what they'll play... not the other way around. Now for the likes of myself who are are building their name, who spins at small bars and clubs, who works for 3-400 a night, a small timer if you will, taking request is almost a prerequisite. Until you get to where there is a demand for you, get off your high horse for a sec and take a stupid request... trust me, it wouldn't hurt your SUPERSTAR status... you may even get your name mentioned a few times the next day.

exactly...i am referring to your everyday working DJ. i have been to too many clubs, hell, even weddings, where the dancefloor is empty, because the DJ wants to "school" the crowd on what good music is and refuses to play what the people want to hear or take any request because they feel above. it is first and always about the crowd...even superstar DJ's know that, that is how they became superstars.

lol, i do the same. If I'm sitting down I pretend there's a crossfader on my jeans and practice the motions. Or if I'm at a table or desk I pretend the crossfader is on there.

Your not a real Dj if you just started 1 month ago. Your not a real Dj if you wear skinny jeans. Your not a real Dj if you are rocking the dr beats headphones . Your not a real Dj when you are stuck in your bedroom making crappy mixes uploading them online. Your not a real Dj when you go to guitar center and act like your shit stinks and your asking what controller is better to mix on! Your not a real Dj when you start telling your family I am a Dj hire me for little bobs 3 year old bday party. Your not a real Dj when you go on YouTube and copy people's playlist of there mixes, your not a real Dj when you ask where to buy music from. Your not a real Dj when now all you listen is to hiphop or all house music.

It's more of a combination of all those qualities...

Kinda like your girl... if she's got big feet, that's one thing, but if she's got big feet, crooked nose, a uni-brow, and a third nipple - then you got problems! But hey, she might be a good DJ.

keep pushing! A real DJ NEVER quits because gigs are hard to get. Keep making those cds and craigslist is ok, but in person is the BEST! People need to see your serious and you get to see the type of crowd that comes in the club. I don't prefer asking reident DJs all the time because its a threat. Your basically asking them for their job. Good Luck
DJ MIXX MASTER TIM 5:34 AM - 7 July, 2012
And let me add... Your not a DJ if:

1] You never hustled to get a gig (First gig or better club job)
2] You never got played by a promoter/club owner for pay
3] You have NO RECORDS
4] You never made a remix and played it at a party
5] You never broke a needle from turntable use lol
6] You never got jealous of another dj in your life (Good jealously to keep you motivated!)
7] You are AFRAID to show your scratch skills in public
8] You never blew an amp (or fuse) at a bar/club (and had to replace it Lol)
9] Party people don't buy you drinks because your busy rocking the crowd!

Funny story. Was doing the air scratching thing walking down the street when I was around 7. It was this huge party on my block in someone's backyard that day. Dude who was at the corner looking for people trying to find the party saw me doing that and told me to come here. He was a dj and said "Find an old fader and practice on that, it will help you out." Never found that fader and I still can't scratch. LOL

You're not a real DJ:

1. if you don't know how to beat match(mix) and make it sound clean on two turntables and a mixer without using a laptop with digital Dj'ing software. Regardless of the type of music you spin.

2. If you don't know how to scratch on the 1's & 2's, and a mixer without using any laptop with Digital Dj'ing software. The challenge was to make it sound clean without the needle skipping all over the place.


You're not a real DJ if you revive a 2 year old thread....with these comments.

How about you aren't a real DJ if you refer to 2015 like the year just started. :-P

I would let you edit your post but you can't.

You aren't a real message board if you can't edit your posts this late in 2015. lol

i am going to go off on a lot of thoughts here...




i mean really who fking cares what a real dj is anymore?!?
the whole Dj world is just full of bullshit, from celebrity djs that are wannabes to taco bell djs at wmc, to some guy that just bought an ipad.

i just watched Craze, who we all know is a dope dj...more than half his set was finger drumming, and then scratching, and juggling. BUT absolutely no where was beatmatching. not one track did he have to adjust pitch...
i can tell you that i have beatmatched TWICE since getting serato in 2004ish. TEN years and i have beatmatched only twice. i match lines on a screen NOT beats. i guess i am not a dj or real and idc.

finger drumming apparently that's now a part of djing. at this point djing would have to include turntablism AND controllerism.
so to be a REAL dj you have to keep up with technology AND have skills in the past.
just matching beats and scratching isn't enough...


i know this is a light hearted thread but when i see people still following the ancient, tired, the world is flat philosophy of djing equals turntables, scratching, beat matching, i can't let it stand.

there are so few REAL Djs because djing is soooo many things now.
so what happens in 100 years or as little as 50 when no one is left that can use turntables?
i guess they will go out like the samurai.



but let me tell you my story and how i became a "dj"...
about 20 years ago, i learned to play hiphop and house. i spent hours and hours learning to match beats. i mean weeks turned to months before i could play out. then i played a shload of raves and clubs. i THOUGHT i was a dj.
then turntablism hit me which lead to learning the history of djing especially on the hip hop and b-boy side. i started buying those original tracks.
let me tell you attempting to play ONLY a 15 second part of an old drum break so people can dance to it is not an easy thing...learning to play the way djs did before a whole song could be played was very humbling. that shit does not mix on the one and does not hold a steady beat and vocals are a nightmore. i quickly found there were dozens to hundreds of different types techniques i had to learn.

so after playing many an event, getting paid a lot of money i found that i was NOT a Dj.
it took my another 10 years of playing and mastering many genres to finally think "i might be a dj now."

but now after seeing what Djing has become, i wonder am i a Dj anymore?
or just a guy that plays music?

there is too muchh to djing that people don't know...
i can throw out my opinion like "unless you have placed tape on the exact thread of a record so the needle jumps to a break you aren't a real dj. unless you can skip back one thread perfectly on a record to create a loop you aren't a real dj. unless you understand tonearm height and how it affects scratching or what toeing-in a needle can do." but i'd be wrong.
i will leave with
...if you don't know what that L shaped white piece of plastic that came with technics is for or how to use it, you aren't a real dj.



the real djs won't be around in a few years.
the art and knowledge is being lost to technology and ignorance.

In my opinion, what makes a DJ is,

A) Music knowledge
B) The ability to match the beats of two records/songs manually or utilizing the pitch
C) The ability to blend songs seamlessly and fluidly
D) If not mixing then the understanding to "drop" songs in that make sense or fit the present vibe.
E) The knowledge, wisdom and understanding to know what to play to keep the majority of the people/patrons happy/dancing.

Others' opinion may differ mildly or greatly but that pretty much is what I go by before labeling a person a DJ.

Be One With The Force.

DJ GOODFOOT 6:38 AM - 2 January, 2016
I'd say when I go to mainstream clubs and lounges, 75% of the DJs I see play the same music and aren't doing anything except the most basic mixing on a given night. It's only a matter of time until Spotify party or the next automated DJ app takes over much of that market. One club manager or "host" can select the mood and style of music mixed, dial up or down the tempo and also control the length of how long each song is played before mixing into the next one. If I were designing the software, I'd also have each song categorized into a weekly adjusted scale of popularity so it could hold the current bangers until the peak hours. No purchase or maintenance on CDJs, Mixers, turntables and you save thousands each week on talent. People can tweet requests or post them on social media pages generating traffic and making the club experience more interactive.

It's up to the DJ community to keep the level of quality up so that customers demand to have a live DJ play at the venue. $$$$ will always be the deciding factor for management and, unless they will lose the crowd to the club across the street that pays a live DJ to perform, I can't see them continuing with the current structure as software continues to improve and offer a cheaper and easier alternative. There will always be a niche market for turntablists and "real DJs" but unless you're famous (for any reason), produce music or draw a few hundred to a club to specifically watch you play, it's going to be a difficult future.
blackavenger 5:55 PM - 2 January, 2016
Hey, DJ Goodfoot.... "Real DJs" don't walk around wearing their headphones. Nor do they take pictures wearing them either.....unless, of course, you are behind the decks. In that case, there is no getting around it. ;-)

Huh. Eventually digital djs might just tech themselves out of existence. And mainstream djs might mainstream themselves out of existence. If the definition of DJ includes unique selecting and physical mixing then it can't be replaced.

maybe but the heads that come out to dance/vibe to a DJ spinning funk 45s aren't gonna be happy with a computer mixing mainstream mp3s, but a crowd at a spot with a computer dj playing current hits probly wouldn't know/care if the dj was replaced.
deezlee 10:03 PM - 2 January, 2016
of course the 50-100 heads that go to a funk 45 event aren't really statistically relevant to the dj equipment industry...
Mr. Goodkat 1:32 AM - 3 January, 2016
people dont care if you mix, just the material that is played. i could set up 10 hrs of funk 45s to play, even time amounts for 1 drop breakdowns, that would be fine.

right now most owners/gms just dont take the time or spend money to do that.

sooner or later i feel that this will be an option(ie precise playlist compilation by djs with set mix points) that club owners will choose because it will be cheaper.

if you just cut down djs by lets say 200$ per week you save 10k . thats a nice vacation for 2. or 4. or your whole staff if you dont go too crazy.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion so I'm not offended but instead of insulting mine how about you enlighten me or better yet all the new djs coming into the fold.

As for my statement to clarify I'm all for technology, shit I have a few controllers, cdjs and turntables. I fucks with abelton mixtape and all those things. My point is a lot of djs coming in don't learn the foundations of djing they don't use the technology to enhance their performance they use it as a crutch and a short cut. Then when they're in a situation out of their element they crash and burn because they don't know how to mix properly cause they didn't learn right. Turntables r a definite part of that foundation which is why it should be amongst one of the pieces you own not necessarily the only. You can mix on turntables you can mix on anything

As for the comment about owning turntables and not practicing or using em that's just plain ignorant but I guess yesterday was a slow day O_O
DJ Quartz 1:51 PM - 24 February, 2016
^ Part of the problem is the grind, music is easily accessible and doesn't cost like it used to.

I feel like you should know about the turntable culture before you call yourself a DJ because thats where it started from. Im not saying everyone should be a turntablist but you should know your history and not just be some USB freak with no appreciation for the art and the many people who grinded so you could have a USB stick with sync, fx, and so on.

What for? they don't own turntables O_O .... I feel you though. I get some of it is a generation gap but I was born in 1976 but I probably know more about music from the 70s/80s when I was a kid better than I do today and that's because i respect the progression of music as a whole to go back and know my history.
DJ Quartz 8:47 PM - 24 February, 2016
On the flip side there is positive experiences to that lack of experience.

I have a lot of newer DJ's interested in turntables and wanting to buy turntables that started off on controllers.

They want to collect records, etc.

So I don't think it's lost. People get what they can afford, it is what it is.

But I think the love of vinyl and turntables is very much alive. At least where I'm from it is.

Our record store that opened in 1991 is still alive and vibrant today. It's where I started my collection and we'll be doing 25th Anniversary in September this year.

i just dont see this hipster vinyl thing going to far and the general music buyer of vinyl is aging hence dying.

digital music makes more sense in a variety of ways, but almost everything comes down to money. vinyl is just a more expensive and less portable, hence my prediction that its around but it will go back to its consumer level of irrelevance.

I see where you're going but it just doesn't apply.

Disc Jockey thing started with vinyl and in many cases still is the way to "DJ".

As a matter of fact, there are really well known DJs that only play on wax. Many releases that are only pressed on wax.
Mr. Goodkat 9:45 PM - 24 February, 2016
''As a matter of fact, there are really well known DJs that only play on wax. Many releases that are only pressed on wax.''

you could say that about digital as well.

and even in any of the current realm of djs that do use wax, which is house and techno, there are probably 500 djs for ever 1 that uses vinyl only and 10000 to 1 that only have vinyl releases. Id also say that the majority of those users is over 30 probably 35 tbh.

of course i have to issue the statement, i know there are younger djs using vinyl, there are some techno guys in my area that use it regularly, and they draw about 40 ppl tops ever to their gigs and literally no one else in the area uses vinyl(top 10 population city, top 5 metro area)

im positive that number is higher in nyc, chi, la, sf and mia, but thats 4 cities out of a lot of cities in the u.s.

You're not a real DJ if you don't respect the craft and the culture. /thread


on serious note, i find most djs don't even know the history of the culture and never even try to embrace what djs had to do in the past.

imo everyone should learn history and try to play the way people did long ago.
for instance, after many years of playing house and hip hop i studied what others did then went out and bought the original "breaks" tracks. then tried to mix and double those tracks. it was a major pain in the ass and i had to toss out almost everything instinct i knew (except beat matching). that type of mixing is so non-linear. you can't always drop on the one. vocals come at weird times. sometimes you can't cut out on the at the end of a measure, it has to extend one or two more beats. you need to learn to put tape on the EXACT thread. there's no time for headphones when extending a 15 second break or a cut. there's no time for putting records back in sleeves...it was easily the most difficult djing i have ever done. it gave me a new outlook on things. it changed me completely. i was a new person and dj.



i am not going to preach what a real dj is. i am not going to belittle those that have never held a record or touched a 1200. it only reinforces the divide.

my point is; it helps to try what your predecessors did. you may find a new respect for them. and it could change your life.

So you can mix circles around 75% of us huh? Interesting.


I'm confident that I can


that's a pretty bold statement that would put you in the upper 4th of djs around here (or maybe anywhere).


now you can take this one of 2 ways; get but hurt and mad or constructive.

I just heard your july 2015 mix (up to about the 5th mix). the mix from track 2-3 was not great and from 3-4 was just plain odd. i think i heard vocal clash. idk maybe i am wrong there and it's the track. if so delete that track.

if this is what the upper 25% tier of what djs sound like, they need a some improvement.

Fair enough that was a while ago that i made that mix up and posted it. We ALL grow and learn every day and i know that since then i've improved greatly my mixing skills.
Also i didn't mean strictly mixing two songs together. perhaps i should have wrote that i can DJ circles round 75% of this forum. DJ in the verb form meaning i can perform all aspects of a DJ's job better than most, which aren't just technical mixing skills, but more of what makes a DJ good from a non DJ point of view. such a song selection for the specific crowd, adapting to crowds and what they like, even if its not a genre you're experienced in (or can't even read the song names lol) transitioning from one genre to another, and entertaining and catering to the crowd, not just pre-made (and god forbid Pre-recorded) crates and mixes just slapped together to make a set. Sure i recorded a mix from a year ago and slapped it together to put it on the internet and it sounded like asscheeks (we've all been there) but a single mix isn't a true example of what skills a professional DJ has, other than technical skill.
Sorry for my mis-wording in the original post.
