I'm tired of other DJ's talking behind my back. Just because I'm female and have only been spinning for so long, doesn't mean that I don't understand the art of what we do. Being a girl doesn't make it any easier. It is actually harder to get people to take me seriously. I look up to each and every one of you. I mean, come on. I was taught by one of the best. If any of you people have a problem with A-Swift, then you're just out of your mind. I am still learning so much every day. I wish I started with only vinyl. I wish there were no computers. At least I don't pay someone to pre-record my sets and stand behind the decks half naked. I'm hired for my talent. Nothing else. I respect the work that all of you have put in to be where you are. All I ask is that you respect me back.

No respect to any female OR male DJ that does this...

By the looks of things, you stay pretty busy. Who cares what others are saying.

Not ranting. I figured this was the best place to reach all those who talk shit behind my back.

What does the Serato DJ forum have to do with those who are "talking behind your back"?

I know for a fact many of those who talk shit post here. It would be interesting to see if they have the balls to reply to my thread.

Okay, makes a little more sense, I was just typing out something different since you gave us zero background, but why not just call them out?

This thread serves that purpose.
Dj Shamann 11:52 PM - 22 May, 2012
LOL I meant by name, they're calling you out, you call them out. Chances are they won't even see this or know what you're talking about. I know you said you're tired of people for dumping on you for being a chick, but this is exactly what a chick would do! No need for being cryptic around here ;)

Anyway, whatever. I was just trying to figure out what this thread was even about LOL
sixxx 11:57 PM - 22 May, 2012
Don't worry about Shamann, he needs shit explained to him because that's how it has been all his life. I remember back in the days when we used to make fun of him for riding the little yellow bus. :P

As far as this thread goes.....

I'll be back. I'm busy at work, but I have a lot to say. I'm glad you're calling "US" out.

Don't worry. I'll be back to put you in your place.

HAHA ;p

Nah it just came off more as a Facebook status then a forum topic. I got a lot of housewives on my friends list and they're always getting liquored up and ranting about the people who talk behind their back.
DJ GaFFle 12:05 AM - 23 May, 2012
LOL... okay, thanx for the clarification.

Yeah assholes! Stop talking shit behind her back! She's been a DJ for a whole year! And she got all of her gigs legitimately.... by dating a well-established DJ and having him teach her everything and getting her gigs, and once she had her foot in the door, she broke up with him. THAT is how every good DJ pays their dues... right? Right???

No idea who you are and frankly, I don't care. If you want to know facts, ask me. Otherwise, believe whatever it is you hear and don't waste my time.

DJing is a game full of shit talking. Gotta have tough skin in this business. There are a billion reasons DJs will talk shit.

They might be jealous of your skills or gigs.

They might think you're an undercutter.

They might think you didn't pay your dues.

They might think you talk a bigger game than your turntable skills warrant.

They might just be a terrible DJ themselves and need to make themselves feel better by putting others down.

You might hang out with people who are known as undercutters and gig snakers and get the guilty by association deal.

Bottom line, there'll always be shit talkers, and if you can bring it on the turntables, you don't need to say anything at all. Let the decks talk for you.

Hey can but then someone will talk shit about him. But then he can tell Richard Blade to tell that guy to fuck off.

Time is better spent practicing and networking, instead of giving your haters/doubters/etc any recognition. Just continue to be yourself and DJ because you love the art. Hope all is well!

Really? I definitely know my way around photoshop, but I know my way around the internet MUCH MUCH Better: lockerz.com

Keep denying small shit and the big shit starts floating to the surface. (pun intended)

Just be comfortable with who you are, don't try to please everyone because you can't. Whether you've gotten to where you are legitimately or not, there's no point in looking back now. There's always going to be DJ's or whomever saying stuff about you or anyone else, that's life. If you truly feel you are really good, then you don't have to make threads like this on a DJ forum with pictures of logs floating in a toilet.
Jesus Christ 3:53 AM - 23 May, 2012
Oh also, I may or may not be the guy who authorized your $50 fee for opening at Sutra tonight. Also, whether I do or do not book DJs, I still hate undercutters. Remember your place in the foodchain the next time you come in to a well-established community and demand that the well-established members of said community respect you. You want respect? Don't hand your business card to the manager of a club that your "friend" is spinning at. Oh yeah. I hear everything.

PS. I'd rather you played a pre-recorded set while half naked than pretend you're California's best DJ while undercutting people who actually have paid dues.

Okay OJ I get it. You aren't the guy that authorized my $50 fee at Sutra. You have no idea how much money I make. Frankly, its irrelevant. If I was a terrible DJ, I wouldn't work every weekend night. Dub and I discussed what I did wrong that night. Every new DJ will learn their place. I learned mine. He also said good things about my DJ skills. Thanks for looking at the positive side. We are all trying to make it here. Looks like you can't handle it. Go get a 9-5.

On the contrary, I know plenty of shitty DJs who work 5 nights a week because bar/club owners and managers are greedy idiots.

And just when I started reading a little humility in your post you go and ruin it with this.

Oh well, at least I can look at myself in the mirror. Good luck in your thriving DJ career. And trust me... when you've done this as long as I have, you know what everyone is making. Don't overestimate your friendship with the promoters. All they care about is your guest list and how little they have to pay you. :)
