    Yeah....that's definitely not my hand. I was hanging off the back of the stage with my feet hooked on the rigging, apparently with a lighting tech running to catch me because he thought I fell.

    GENERALLY, from my experience, open format DJs are quite a bit busier than house DJs. I am booked as a house DJ but dabble in open format when I'm home or at a friends. Doing this has really improved the creativity of my house sets and given me quite a bit to do.

    You got that right.

    I've run into him once, but I've never seen him perform live. I kinda want to know what a whole set is actually like.

    this first thing to learn about knobs and faders is to not put a thousand pounds of preasure on them. meaning they wont break because you touch them lightly. the most common thing to do is to take the bass out of the track you are mixing in and turn it up at the end of the mix. or turn it up a little during the mix to blend a bass line or something. EQ cueing is actually a large part of dj'ing. every track is different and they all sound different. I keep my EQ's flat meaning the bass and treble are in the middle but my mid is turned to 2/3rds. that works best for me you find your own way.

    Well you can go the star route but I feel they clash with the mirror balls.
