    All of our devices are consistently being consolidated into singular pieces of technology, so I can see his logic.

    Think about 15 years ago. You had a portable music player, cell phone, house phone, fax machine, photo camera, video camera, phone book, and address book. Now, you just have a cell phone.

    The DJ peering at his phone is not really much different to the DJ peering at his laptop, and neither are much different from the crowd, most of whom are watching the whole thing on their phone while they record it anyway.

    Nobody cares what a DJ looks like when he’s playing.

    Do you think a painter cares how he looks when he’s painting? Or a drummer when he’s drumming?

    Looks are everything...When I dress for work people are always calling me sir. When I’m dressed down for stuff around my house and need to go to the store, people don’t even look twice at me. The way you present yourself in public is a big deal. I’m not saying it’s right, it’s just the way humans are.

    Your music is your presentation. Most DJs I have seen (big name or not) are usually just in a T-shirt (except Eric Morillo). If you use an iphone, so be it. You better rock the party.

    I agree music is the presentation but you need to look the part. T-shirst aren't bad. If you look like a bum your not going to get hired. If you have already become a huge name, you can do what ever you want. New djs will probably adopt the iPhone/ipad dj thing. I don't think I will.

    If you are trying to "get" the job. Of course. Take a shower and put on a nice shirt. But I am standing and moving for three or four hours I need to be comfortable.
