    I like how you conveyed your argument. Really convincing.

    Well, I think it is boring. If it doesn't contain over 9000 hotcues, samples, crab scratches and at least a few air horns, it'll bore me.
    And I don't have ADHD.

    That had to be sarcastic... but it truely does bore me....

    3 minute song, mix to the next... 3 minute song.. mix to the next... What exactly then did you buy those crazy technics for.. cdjs or the 2500 mac book pro to do... To each their own. I hope it dies very soon and people understand that to be entertaining.. you need to entertain.. and .. Do something.

    Even top name DJs say A B mixing is boring and the consumer over glorifies what they are actually doing up there.


    Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin... scene needs more artists like that.. IE: ones who take advantage of their 4k dollar setups.

    A - B IS boring. It is NOT creative, and it is just plain lazy. It is the epitome of "a little knowledge being a dangerous thing".

    Don't convince yourself that because you can (almost) beatmatch, and that you understand phrasing, you are a creative being. You are NOT a DJ.

    I can programme a perfectly mixed A-B set set in Ableton Live that any club/bar could play over their PA in place of paying a DJ. THAT IS WHY DJ's MUST become more creative - to prove they are still required.

    This is truly the worst thread I have ever laid eyes upon. It will get real ugly, real quick, in here.

    +1 Been saying this for years. But when people keep getting 300 dollar a night gigs with their prerecorded sets, 13 song 1 hour mixes, its just not going to die as fast as we want
