    I never let anyone carry my laptop bag. My fiance wont even pick it up cus she knows i wont allow it.

    -Getting It Stolen,ETC
    Yes this is big fear. I have my gear insured in the house and i have specialist DJ insurance that covers EVERYTHING but, i once had all my studio gear nicked, over 5,000 so i know what its like to lose everything and the horror of the feeling that someone has been in your room and just taken stuff.

    My biggest fear at some gigs is people being close enuff to spill beer on my laptop. I freak when beer glasses/bottles come near my laptop cus i have had one ruined by beer before.

    Although my biggest fear as a DJ is not getting back from the toilet after a piss before the track ends !!!

    Biggest DJ fear? I don't really have a fear no more. But even holding the second best residency in the town (the best one being my DJ partner as he is head DJ) i still get quite nervous when i know other DJ's are around.. Especially the likes of Andy Duguid who is an established DJ that frequents our club and all the other DJ's who frequent the club are very, very close friends with Chris Lake so i feel a pressure as i know they are talented and i am somewhat still 'up and coming'.

    Could you imagine: You are cueing a song to find the part that you want to start fading in or whatever and then you notice the volume fader wasn't all the way down and everybody heard.

    Never happend to me (nor is it likely to happen) but if it did I would die of sheer embarrassment and failure.

    Biggest fear has happened to me. Luckilly the place hadnt gotten busy yet so a quick re/route of software/hardware and i was back on track

    Using SSL and one of the CDJs completely failed (luckilly it wasnt the playing deck), roll'd the track out into silence, brought in a premade mix from my ipod, booted up traktor and used my x1 with that for the night.

    If that happens in SSL, you can just stick the broken deck into internal mode, enable instant doubles, and just use the instant doubles to transfer your currently playing track into the internal deck then cue up your next track on the working deck as usual.

    Mixing with one deck is completely possible
