    Default "Well aged" DJs. Represent.

    Being 37, I am curious how many DJ's are on the forum that were around before CD's graced the booth, let alone mp3's, laptops, and software. So any old school turntableists, or other DJs that were 18 and the Golden Age of Hip Hop was still in it's prime?

    Just a fun fact of something. :P

    im 27 this year, started building up my vinyl collection 10 years ago when i was 17
    my vinyl collection stops at around 1000 pieces, since then i just buy music online because it was starting to get really difficult to buy records (now im in singapore)
    Setup:

    Traktor Pro 2 / S2 MK2 / X1 MK2 / Audio6 / Pioneer HDJ2000 / Westone UM3X / rMBP 13 inch 2014 (2.8 GHz) / Focal Alpha 50

    there's quite a few people on the forum in their 30's. a couple in their 40's i believe.

    ...same here...when i started, just getting the tracks matched was half the fun or more...and, i remember how much i was amazed when sick djs would have multiple tracks going, acapellas, etc., all by ear. still pretty sick. different time now, with incredible new possibilities, but i'll always think that a dj who can beatmatch is money.

    and I still carry cd back-ups!
