    Hey, just a quick one - linked to the beatmatching, age range debate i guess.

    No prejudice atall, just interested to see. How many people here are simply bedroom DJs, and how many are actively making money from being a DJ.

    I've broken it down a bit more than that, just to get a better range (perhaps..)

    I hope you find this interesting too

    Our first paid club gig was about a year and a half ago, we've lots of unpaid outdoor parties etc before and after that as well. Being on the harder side of the DJ spectrum its a bit more difficult for us to get regular spots in our few local bars, and the times we have its been housey electro stuff, which tbh isn't our forte. Smalll town (25000 or so in Blenheim) there are only a handful of DJ's around, whom we know and when ever one of us plays, the others usually get free drinks all night. Friend of ours owns a cafe and is sussing out his liquor license, after that we can rock out every week.
