    Default I challenge you! Yes YOU!!!

    I've been a DJ since 93 or so. From Turntable, CDJs & Midi. Over the last couple of years I have post on DJTT and this have been a awesome community, but I feel like the we are fogetting the core mission we are trying to achieve.

    Now here is the challenge.

    GO MIX! GO DJ!

    I feel like alot of us have gotten sucked in with all this dj technology that we are worrying too much about what gear, software, laptop, or hardware. Rock what you got!

    Mix for fun, record your sets, post them on soundcloud, mixcloud, mixcrate, youtube, etc. Meet up with local djs, go crate digging at 2nd hand stores for vinyl & cds...you'll be surprised how much cool music is out there aside from the BeatPort Top 100.

    Lets make DJ-ing or spinning fun again.

    It's the reason I still play records in my bedroom after nearly 20 years of having decks. I enjoy it. I lurrrrrvvvve it. It's something that relaxes and invigorates me at the same time. That's a neat trick.

    I've played in most of the local spots in years gone by, but my best moments have been - just me, my decks and a couple of tins of quality, chilled beer. It's all about the feeling you get from the beats, there's nothing more fulfilling than that, my friends.

    I'm on this website so I've obviously turned to the dark art of digital DJ'ing, but I do think some kids are missing a trick by not seeing that this is meant to be fun, and it's not that big a deal folks. Try to enjoy it a bit more. I know I did - and still do.

    Totally agree. Good DJs could even get the job done with one or two iPods.

    I would but I'm afraid I won't be able to DJ until finish deciding which controller would best complement my current setup, then I have to create a custom mapping for it and show it off on the internets.
