    Default DJ Xfactor [the official thread]

    I just came accross this http://www.musicweek.com/story.asp?s...rycode=1048257. personally i think that this could be yet another excuse for those who have no talent to buy a laptop, crack traktor and attempt the art we call djing by playing the latest rihanna or david guetta tune!

    What do you think?

    Absolutely ridiculous!!

    The statements from Cowell are even better:

    "will capture the incredible rise of the DJ phenomena" .....what, incredible over the last 30 to 35 years?

    "DJs are the new rock stars, it feels like the right time to make this show"

    Moron, I hate shit statements that show no idea of the industry and history!!!

    How would this even work? Would they have categories for styles of mixing?

    THere's going to be loads of wanky Guetta wannabes. No true representation of what we do.

    This going to go the way of DJ hero, hopefully and Cowell will sink miserably in bankruptcy (Edit - i know this is hopeful but a guy can have dreams) he is a parasite and needs to wind it in!

    If it includes music production I'd be interested in watching. I think it would be cool if they said "This week you'll be producing the track for a new hip hop artist/Gaga song/soda commercial", then you have to go up and perform it. It would show the true versatility of the producer rather than you can mix the most creatively.

    the beauty of there being loads of wanky guetta wannabes is that it spreads interest in dj'ing to a commercial market.

    a commercial market attracts investors and innovators that previously never existed. providing products to all and sundry.

    I can never get my head around why people think the thing they're interested in isn't allowed to be an interest for someone with different musical tastes, or for someone who wants to commercialise and market it.

    None of the above will ever force me to listen to a wanky guetta wannabe, or make me watch a dj'ing xfactor. Nor will it stop me from enjoying what I enjoy.

    If Mr Ean Golden gave that a shot, he'd win it hands down. Why would he degrade himself though. As for Mr. Cowell, this won't get far on the box. If it does, then an outrage will happen, nit just from us but about 100% of the Dance Music culture.

    true, but it also saturates the market meaning that the supply of djs outweighs demand, meaning it is a buyers market, we all know that a majority of bar owners dont care about the skill of a dj, as in most commercial clubs and especially bars it is cost that they are interested in and are quite blinkered when it comes to the real cost or return on investment you get when spending extra on a good dj
