when is it too old to be a dj?

djbigmark 7:21 PM - 26 June, 2008
A freind of mine does private parties for a magazine company. Recently it was mentioned that a younger look was needed so they hired another dj to play alongside him. The other dj is young but not good. My freind has experience and can dj with one hand behind his back. Yes he has some gray hair and is a little over weight and he is 46. When is it time to retire.

That's discrimination on the bases of age. Punishable by law btw.


At any rate, it's never too old to be a DJ and rock parties as long as you're still killing it and can connect with your crowd. That's it.
DJ Nick Lee 7:55 PM - 26 June, 2008
Part of connecting with the crowd is looking the part. As jacked up as it sounds your physical appearance might as well be coming out of the speakers.

This goes along the lines of people not giving a fuck how you mix unless you're mixing the right songs... they won't care what you look like. They'll care what you play.

Anyone seen TRL lately. The vdj they have on there looks whack and plays even whacker. In his defense I'm sure he's got a million restrictions on what he can play and how he can play it but damn...

There's a local guy here that is about that age (definitely mid to late 50's at least) and he commands lots of respect. He spins really tripped out house music. I see crowds around him from 17 to 47 sooo...I think it all depends on what you want to do and who you want to do it for.

Are you going to stop spinning when you're 60? I can't imagine stopping now! Figure by then all your friends will be 60 too, so you'll have people. Or maybe you can get gigs at a geriatric home.

I think about this quite a bit. At what point will I decide to knock it all on the head and quit. I have the gift of looking about 19 though so I should be good for another 10 years at least. Lol.

But I think it would depend on where you dj, what you play, who you play to etc.

The other question is would you still want to be spinning clubs at night and working day jobs when you're into your 50's?
DJ Jonasty 1:37 PM - 27 June, 2008
I would say at about the same age that Rappers should stop rapping. But then again look at Grand Master Flash, he's still out there...And the Rolling Stones.....

+1.

I don't think I'll ever stop DJing but I will probably stop DJing in clubs or any gigs with really loud music (I feel old just saying that, lol) when my ear problems get to be too much. I've already lost hearing in only a few years of spinning clubs and I don't want to be deaf when I'm old!

When you play Juicy by Biggie and some one asks you if this is a new tune.
DJ Art Pumpin Payne 9:13 AM - 30 June, 2008
Ok, I avoided this thread all weekend but finally clicked. Yep I'll be 45 in about a month and the thing is if music and DJ-ing is REALLY in your blood you never really want to quit, you just evolve or change.

I started in New Wave and Progressive - early 80's (think Depeche Mode and New York Garage shit), then House music (and Classic Techno) (- mid/late 80's) came and it eventually got fucked up by Europe (watered down - less soulful) so I went R&B, Rap, & Hip Hop (ummm Mid 90's? - when did Biggie Ready to Die come out?) did that for years until I got burned out (but didn't fully quit, just went through the motions)

I got Serato about a year and 1/2 ago and now I'm excited again. I am still trying to figure out where EXACTLY I want to go with it.

Now I did say evolve - I worked in the Music Industry too doing promotion (Detroit Techno labels, Indie Street Promotions, and even did a short stint as the Midwest Rep for Luke Records). I am also currently working on Party Promotions. I also want to try the Wedding and Mobile thing too. You may not spin full time EVERY WEEK but you may want to physically impact the music scene in your area somehow. View life from the other side of the decks somehow when spinning becomes boring or frustrating.

When Serato and Final Scratch came it changed the game. Right now is a weird time to be a DJ. Used to be the ultimate goal as a DJ was either to become a Billboard Reporter at the Hottest Club in your City or to become a hot mixer on the Radio or to travel Internationally to DJ.

Local cats like Hardy, DJ Shadow, and Cubicle (when he goes International with his travel- LOL) have achieved what used to be the goals in my time. That was "The Bar" back in the day.

My question for you young cats - what are the goals for a DJ now?
DJ Art Pumpin Payne 9:34 AM - 30 June, 2008
The other thing that I want to say is after a while it becomes "harder" to recognize a "hit" when you are older.

When I first heard "Love In The Club" by Usher I thought it sounded like somebody kicked out the Midi cable when they were making the track, didn't think it would be a hit - pure filler garbage. Radio pounded it in my head and it kinda began to make sense but at first listen I just couldn't get with the beat. That song had me worried I had lost my "ear" after it became a hit- LOL.

Luckily, I can STILL recognize, relate, and appreciate music (good, bad, mindless and other) at my age. Lil Wayne may be "Hot Garbage" but I saw the way the Hoochies danced to Lollipop when I first played it and I love the Bass hits on A Milli. The Jay Z track Mr. Carter is sweet and the Robin Thicke cut is interesting.

The Internet is there to fill in gaps if I am not sure.
Caramac 10:05 AM - 30 June, 2008
I diagree. I don't think it's harder to recognise hits. It's just in this market you have to kind of wait to see if a tune has been promoted or not. It's a lot harder for a what I call ''Kareoke'' tune (anything with vocals that someone can sing along to) to become a hit without some major push. There are plenty of tunes I hear that I personally feel would be a hit and had they been released in yesteryears market then they may well be. It's just the industry has changed considerably and as a regular dj (as in someone who isn't a dj drama, green lantern, flex etc) our job to break music is a lot harder then it used to be.

On a serious note, my goal is just to improve in all aspects of DJing and everything else will take care of itself. I just try and compete with myself gig after gig. I have always been big about recording mixes on a regular basis and NOTHING has helped me get better more than that. I review all my live sets on Sundays and make a mental note of what I did well and what I should avoid next time. It also makes me not want to criticize other DJs when they make a technical mistake - although I'm harsh when it comes to song selection.

I also consider remixing a part of DJing and I feel like I have gotten better at that since I first started doing those about 4-5 years ago when it was always a simple A over B without too much thought going into it.

I think that constantly improving my DJ skills and also acting professional (aka not getting stupid drunk) at gigs has allowed me to get good residencies, good guest spots and in the last year I've been able to travelling gigs as well. I'm sticking to the game plan!
Logisticalstyles 3:58 PM - 30 June, 2008
Not too long ago an 'annonymous hater' called the number on my banner and left a long drunken message about how I'm too old to be spinning and how the bar needs to 'hire a young cat'. At first that got me thinking about being too old, but I'm only 33 and I know of people waaay older than me still going strong. Even if I did get 'too old' I would probably just start focusing on other aspects of DJing, like remixing and production.

I like the Viewpoint on that! Even though I started DJing in 89' and do feel that the majority of HipHop today is wack, as a DJ we have to realize that playing to our crowds IS our job. Cats my age hit the club like once a month as opposed to everyweek like we used to in the 90's, so the Fresh 21's as I call um' ARE runnin' things and to be on point no matter your age you have to adapt. I hang with quite a few DJ's who are stuck in the past and won't play anything hiphop past say 1997-1998 we have great mix sessions but their club routines are stupid lazy!! For example, what kid born in the LATE 80's would even know or respect the B side remix to Redmans "Rated R" ??? He/She was like 5-6 at best when that dropped!!! So when I hear a DJ bust a true B-side Classic, I love it but the Lil ones all run for the bar!!! Kinda Sad in a way but reality none the less. Damn this is long but to revisit the topic, Neva too old to Spin!!! Maybe when I get arthritic with my scratches I may consider it....naw...I'll just take some of that Arthritis Tylenol Sh*t and keep it movin!! One Love!!

I don't have the "look" that some of you speak of but it hasn't stopped me from rocking many parties and getting plenty of compliments afterward. The beauty comes out in the music you play and how you're able to express and share that with your crowd. And sometimes that can take a lifetime to learn young grasshopper.

This sums up how I feel. I love my 90's stuff and nostalgia doesn't even come into it. Rap music today is shit compared to the 90's but i've had my day and my job is to entertain the people who come out to listen.

There's a place and a time for everything. My passion is hip hop... the underground type. I've done plenty of underground hip hop shows for the love and nothing else. Either not get paid or broke even if I was fronting the money. That's what I asked for.

Now, if you're paying bullshit you don't like. You're following directions. You're essentially being a slave to the game... and you don't ask for $ as compensation, then you're in fact a loser. You're a pushover.

If you don't believe me, ask yourself. How many weddings are you willing to do for free? There's your answer.

If I scored a regular gig I'd be less willing to play for sammiches but I play out once every few months so I don't feel the need top be paid for it - normally it's for friends/friends of friends etc in some capacity or another, but I've had a couple of random gigs that have been very well paid - I just saw a paycheck as a little icing on the cake y'know?

I dunno, it just seem like the same people who would jump ship when they realize that djing isn't all glamour are the same people who would expect to be getting mad paid straight away.

@Sixxx

I'm not doubting you're dedication to proper hip hop or the artform in any way but I don't really think I'm lying to myself. The truth is that because I don't have a regular gig I'm willing to play for free because I enjoy it. If I was playing every week to a crowd that wanted top 40 stuff or the Grease soundtrack I would want paying but despite being offered a few of those kind of gigs I've always turned them down. When I think about what djing is to me I don't even consider that side of things. It's not some super keep it real tip, I'd just rather not do them.

I'm not a working dj so getting paid just isn't something I think about. I don't hassle people to give me gigs so I never even considered that people are getting their residencies stolen from under them.

I think we're just coming from very different places. You're a working dj right? So I get why you'd expect to be paid (and I never said you shouldn't). But for those of us who aren't or who are trying to break into it I don't see why offering to play for free is such a big deal, it's like people who are trying to get into any type of showbiz, you're just expected to work for free at first.

In answer to your question about weddings though... I've actually played 3 weddings for free & have another one next month! But in all fairness they've been mates of mine so I know their tastes & been allowed to get away with a lot of "good" music & only been forced to play stuff that's more guilty pleasures than just shitty. Kind of like my wedding gift to them y'know? I don't think I'd do weddings of people I didn't know even if they were paying me but I get your point.


Phew, that became a bit of an essay. Anyhoo, not looking for drama, it's just my two cents.
sixxx 7:06 PM - 11 July, 2008
DJing free of charge for friends and family is a given. The fact that you've said,

Quote:

which reaffirms the fact that you have your limits and you wouldn't always play for free. There's nothing wrong with being choosy about gigs. I do it all the time. I used to do a lot of mobile gigs, I choose not to anymore unless it's for someone I've done business with before or their selection of music is appealing to me as well.

Same with clubs. I choose the gigs I play. They don't choose me.

This shows a goal for most people. If you're willing to work for free at the beginning is only with a purpose. That purpose being gaining experience, networking, etc. Now, if you really played for free no matter what, then that's another big issue.
kid90nz 7:29 PM - 11 July, 2008
Now for my 2c,

As far as payment for services rendered, I've always had a sliding scale (but then, I've never really had a solid residency anywhere). If it's a gig for someone I don't know, I ask for my higher standard rate. If I like you, I'll play for less money (but you had better hook me up with some goodies, narm sane?), a good example of this is coming up in a couple of months- a friend is bringing Blackalicious to NZ, I'm playing for half what I would normally but I'm playing out of my usual genre and it's a great chance to get my name back out there. And it's the night after my birthday!

Which brings me to my second point: I'm turning 30 soon. I've recently met a young D'n'B crew that put on a weekly and so far I haven't felt ridiculously old. Sometimes when the wife and I head out to a gig though, now that's a different story. NZ has a +18 drinking law, so clubs are full of (from my point of view) little kids. I don't think it's the age difference that really gets me, it's more about a culture difference. I got into dance music when it had it's own culture- no-one drank, people danced all night and you went to gigs purely for the music. These days every gig is full of drunk little punks with no concept of personal space or respect for the DJ/music. Little shits that stand in the middle of the dancefloor and try to have conversation! WTF! Isn't that what the bar area is for? F@#k off!!! Let me dance in peace!

Maybe I'm just getting cynical in my old age. Think I'll change my DJ name to DJ Grumpy Ol'Man.
Lionman 12:15 AM - 12 July, 2008
You're absolutely right, I wouldn't play those gigs for free. I wouldn't play them at all. It's fine if people do want those gigs, power to them but it's just not for me.

As for your second point - That's the level I'm at, most of my mixing is done at home, I make tapes for my friends & play out now & then at a few bars that I know the managers of & mates house parties. I can't say I'd always play for free & to be perfectly honest I probably wouldn't but like I said, I'm not in this for a career & at this point I'm perfectly happy to play for free/treats/sexual favours.


But that's me I guess.

i pissed a chick off big time when i told her that she wasnt any good in bed cause she just layed there.

so after she got mad i figured i'd piss her off more and say its just like humping a pillow with boobs...

she said well at least its a pillow with big boobs...

i corrected her and said no, its a pillow with average boobs, but at least they're not saggy...
