    Default Art of DJ'ing

    Saw this video from Toolroom Records. Lots of good info from legends offering their thoughts on DJ'ing. I found it to be very inspirational.

    What Mark Knight says at 3:46 in is what I consider to be the most important part of DJing. But what I find is they talk a lot about this and I hardly ever see it in person. DJ's will show up and have a the mix that they want to play and they will shove it down the crowds throat never reading into the crowd at all.

    I saw Nicole Moudaber at Ultra Festival last year. It was 4 PM and completely bright and sunny and she was playing back to back to back dark techno. Like hard dark German 7 AM drugged out techno. The crowd was not feeling it at all. How could you? And she just went right through her set without altering it one bit. Same set she probably plays at every gig.

    I know that you are booked to play a certain sound. Your "sound". But I feel a professional DJ should be able to adapt and maybe play something within their "sound" but more fit for the ambiance.

    What are your thoughts?

    The only time I program a mix is if I am just making a mix.

    Live you have to feel that groove and make everyone else feel it too.

    Reading crowds is hard when you only have one type of your genre you play.
