    I'm not a fan of gimmics, as far as track selection i feel some ppl want to hear the same songs. It's funny levels is the example cause that gets requested every time i play lol, but weird music is more fun for me haha

    The one thing they left out that annoys me the most is when the artists cuss at you 'ie.. put your motherfuckin hands up'. that really detracts from the experience, just let the music do the talking

    True, I'm not a fan of screaming over the mic. They have MC's for that.

    I guess one of the major signs of being a shitty Dj is reading shitty blogs like this.

    Damn, I read it

    I fall into the Shitty remix category, but I only look for remixes that make me bounce.

    Remix's are something that can make a set. Setting that hook with something that people may recognize with a touch of different funk is something I think is vastly overlooked.

    You need to play to your crowd. I've been bothered sometimes when DJ's and producers don't read the crowd correctly, and don't go as deep as they could. But some remixes really bring people to the floor, and then you can nail em with something nasty they don't see coming.

    That's my thought on it at least.

    I think this article is just a jaded jab at people, and doesn't hold any real value. Don't just shit on people, help them become better.

    I think its taking hits at the guys making money who probably think they dont need to be any better since they're making the money.
