IF YOU MOVED TO A NEW CITY TO DJ, WHERE WOULD U GO?

DEEJAY O 9:03 PM - 23 June, 2008
considering 'the grass is always greener' let's see where the spots you guys would choose to relocate are and why you chose them.....

i've already done scottsdale and orange county.....my next move to pursue dj'ing opportunity would be vegas or the bay (in that order). i dont plan on moving at all at this time, but hypothetically speaking thats what it would be for me.....
sixxx 9:06 PM - 23 June, 2008
I would move to Hawaii.
Audio1 9:15 PM - 23 June, 2008
Id say THE SF BAY AREA (but I already live here)

For me:
Denver, Colorado
Portland, Oregon

I chose Denver & Portland because they have relatively small but incredibly vibrant club scenes and are hella open to out of town cats who want to elevate the local game. Ive had the best time playing at both these towns + they are nice areas to move to outside of DJing.
DJ Young Herrera 9:20 PM - 23 June, 2008
I would go to Southbeach at this point in my life.
CQuence 9:23 PM - 23 June, 2008
I would move back to the Bay and grind a lot harder than the 1st time I lived out there. O, do the butterfly
Audio1 9:25 PM - 23 June, 2008
Time to move up foolio...
CQuence 9:27 PM - 23 June, 2008
Yea the lease is up next month, need to find a job
djpuma_gemini 9:29 PM - 23 June, 2008
Seattle, wait, I am going there. Id move back to LA. naaaaah
iRockCrowds 9:43 PM - 23 June, 2008
moving to a new place where u dont know anyone SUCKS. TRUST ME. It makes djing alot harder cause u have ZERO connects

where u at now?
dirtbag filthy 9:50 PM - 23 June, 2008
yeah i did this moving from nyc to orange county

pay drop with no connects is no fun but you can't beat the weather...if i moved somewhere else it would be hawaii, costa rica, or australia

CQ.....u know i gots that buttafly and tootsie roll sew'd up!! stop wakin up on the floor in bootleg rappers' hotel rooms tho!!!
CQuence 10:39 PM - 23 June, 2008
Better than wakin up in the bed of the bootleg rappers bootleg hypeman
j cue 5:07 AM - 28 June, 2008
as im out east,for me it would have to be somewhere like tokyo. i hear nothin but good shit about that place,, so thats my next move,, as soon as i make the apropriate connections
dj_penguin 7:19 AM - 28 June, 2008
Portland or San Francisco
DJ Evil One 8:15 AM - 28 June, 2008
whatever any of you do, don't move to portland. the ceiling on DJ pay out there is low. the liquor commission is oppressive, and the club owners don't give a flying fuck about DJs.

one of the main reasons i'm looking at SF, SD and LA.
DJ Jonasty 1:07 PM - 28 June, 2008
I'm in Colorado and the scene is great, and people love hearing new DJ's. I"ve got great connects here and gigs every weekend, but am moving to Melb. Australia for a couple of years. I have a nice base there, but not much in the DJ world. I'll let yall knows how it turns out.

Audio 1 is correct about Denver... It's like an untapped goldmine.

i was wanting to move to denver, im sick of dallas. my girl wants to go live in vegas but she might be going to puerto rico so denver might be an option for me.
DJ Jonasty 1:45 PM - 29 June, 2008
I've lived in Vegas, it can be hard times there.
Martin McFly 9:09 PM - 29 June, 2008
1. San Francisco
2. Chicago
3. Miami
4. DC
5. NY
6. Denver

The last four on are on my hit list for this year.
sopranosupasta 3:06 AM - 30 June, 2008
I'd have to say
LA
Miami
Negril, Jamiaca
DJ Evil One 4:47 AM - 30 June, 2008
after my latest trip...i have to say honolulu, hi. fucking ill.
DJ Sniffles 4:59 AM - 30 June, 2008
Seoul, KR. They pay big money for American DJs even if they suck. Also, hardly any of the DJs there mix

I've actually heard this too, my boy G sqared gigged out there and said the same shit as Sniffles, maybe your not as full of shit as I had thought! lol
kalibhakta 9:40 AM - 30 June, 2008
Sometime within the next year I am moving to Calcutta, India (my favorite city!) and I plan on staying for 3-5 years. I know getting gigs there for me will be easy.

Back home to Kingston Jamaica. Still have a few connects there and if you are half decent you can make a pretty good living djing. The only thing that would blow is paying for "specials" which can be very pricy. Soprano knows what i'm talking about....
Caramac 1:15 PM - 30 June, 2008
I've always wanted to dj in Jamaica. I've told the missus next time I go. I'm bringing the 05, serato and the mac and I'm looking to tear it down.

She flat out said no as I play too much gun man music. Lol.
sopranosupasta 1:29 PM - 30 June, 2008
haha.....bullet bullet!!!
sopranosupasta 1:30 PM - 30 June, 2008
I LOVE spinning in JA........
Caramac 1:53 PM - 30 June, 2008
Lol. I told her brother I dj'd and he was like where are your cds. We have a dance in Jungle you can spin at. She just came interrupted and said no no no. Lol.
DJ Autograph 1:54 PM - 30 June, 2008
Yea you probably don't want to do that lol. would NEVER even attempt to spin there.
sopranosupasta 1:56 PM - 30 June, 2008
lol....the jungle gets crazy man...... I spun a "da ville"(margaritaville) and I did a party over at Bar B Barn...that was crazy enough for me......

I got pretty good pics of the party i did @ the ville on my myspace
Caramac 2:09 PM - 30 June, 2008
Lol next time I go. I'm hustling for a spot out there.

Soprano? Did you spin a strictly bashment set or more hip hop?
sopranosupasta 2:12 PM - 30 June, 2008
I played everything.... it was spring break time, so it flew.... I did SLAY the locals with some Marley house remixes though...

the place was pretty nuts... I got a couple bullets....lol
Caramac 2:18 PM - 30 June, 2008
Lol. bullet bullet bullet.
DJ Autograph 2:21 PM - 30 June, 2008

DJ Autograph 2:50 PM - 30 June, 2008
Really? At the one in Negril? I would expect that more in Montego Bay....
sopranosupasta 2:52 PM - 30 June, 2008
yeah, negril.... it wasnt all night. if i remember correctly it was twice... lol
sopranosupasta 2:53 PM - 30 June, 2008
my boy is all over both of those joints. lol....you know DJ Shinehead? he's one of my really good friends down there.....

man i love that place.. all this talk makes me wanna go back right now!!!
DJ Young Herrera 3:17 PM - 30 June, 2008
Shinehead? The one that did Jamaican in New York?
sopranosupasta 3:23 PM - 30 June, 2008
no, thats the artist Shinehead. my friend is DJ Shinehead. Irie Fm.......

DJ Autograph 3:40 PM - 30 June, 2008
Yea i've met Shinehead a couple of times. My boy also DJ's in the one in Montego Bay. You know Nico?
sopranosupasta 3:49 PM - 30 June, 2008
hmm, nico? I dunno... only a few people down there i know by name, Shinehead. Iwayne Red Rat, Cash Money(straight street hustler), rick (local jewler) and Norm over at Bar B Barn.....

Caramac 5:15 PM - 30 June, 2008
Everytime I hear the name Red Rat it reminds me of college. I used to have braids back then and everyone thought I was him when I was out and about. Lol.
Martin McFly 5:47 PM - 30 June, 2008
Red Rat is that dude. "Dwayne" and "Tight Up Skirt" are the shit. Ohhh no!!!!!
Caramac 5:52 PM - 30 June, 2008
Lol. That's what everyone used to say to me in college.

ohhh noo. Lol.
sixxx 5:52 PM - 30 June, 2008
