    Default What music are you willing to play?

    So what type of music are you willing to play?

    For example, house music is what I love, but it isn't the most popular here, so I'm not open to DJing top 40, pop, hip-hop, r&b, rap. A friend of mine actually asked me to DJ for his cousin's party, but they aren't house music fans, so I'm not that interested.

    Do you guys play music that you aren't a fan of or just stick to what you know?

    I don't play what I don't like but I don't DJ for a living. It's just a side gig/hobby to my "day job"

    For my mates and at parties i'll play anything. If it was a paid gig then I would only accept if I am comfortable with and enjoy the genres they require.

    If it's a paid gig like a party or event, I'll play whatever they want me to. If its a party I'm throwing or that I'm doing free for friends, I play what I want, but I'll throw folks a bone occasionally in a set.

    if ur getting paid, then u play what ur getting paid for. im mainly a trap/hip hop/dubstep DJ, but I have a residency at a club on a Saturday that is all abot top 40s and house. I try and make it a personal challenge to make interesting sets with songs im not really into. helps me kind of enjoy it i guess.

    Only play what I want, which means I say no to gigs where I can't play deep/tech house and techno

    i prefer playing deephouse and techhouse, but i can and do play techno, minimal, nu-disco and indie sets. i dont do other genres like top40, trance, prog etc. because i don't like it and i am not up to date with the music.
    nothing worse than for example a dubstep dj playing a deephouse set with tracks he just got that day because he normally doesn't spin it and had to do it.
