I remember one of my first gigs back in 04/05, I rocked up with my laptop and Stanton Final Scratch 1

The Resident DJ at the club was like WTF is that S#%T u're not a real DJ using a laptop blah blah blah. (he was kinda well known so it shook me a bit) but....

I ended up blowing tha roof off the place and got a residency there myself after only 1 set. 2 yrs later I was running the whole promotion/DJ's ended up being there for 5 yrs

The moral of the story is to just focus on the music and job at hand and good things will happen.

Unfortunately in this industry there are ALOT of TOSSBAGS. just forget em

Goodluck in the future
