    Default What kind of DJ are YOU ???

    I was having a chat with a friend earlier today about the different approaches to djing, as their are many different types of djs who share the title of "DJ" yet their jobs and performances may differ heavily depending on the person or gig.
    i.e., some DJs are turntablists who focus on vinyl/mixer manipulation technique, then you have standard dance/club DJs who focus on smooth transitions between tracks in an "A to B" fashion. You also have the Radio DJ variety whose focus is track selection and does very minimal fade in/out transitions at the end of tracks. Now with the dawn of Controllers we now have Controllerism djs who focus on heavy audio manipulation using software effects and midi controllers.... Just to name a few of the schools of thought and approaches to the craft of DJing.

    So with so many different types of DJs out there, I was wondering what the digital dj market was mostly composed of and am curious to know where DJTT sits as a community.

    What kind of DJ are YOU ????? The poll is multiple choice so if you belong to more than one of the categories you can choose whatever one applies to you!

    i do smooth transitions between two tracks, letting the tracks speak for themselves.

    < Xone:1D:22:2D + Vestax PadOne >

    hey

    I'm pretty much a mixture. Most of my bill paying nights are top-40 nights, so they have a mix of just rough basic "fade over and throw it on" mixes and longer smooth club mixes as you call them for both house/dance and hiphop. But i also like to throw in a bit of "controllerist" and throw in some samples and accapellas and stuff.

    but yeah this is all dependent on what the venue wants and what style they play, so that means i'm also Multi-faceted.

    I like to think of myself as a dance controllerist, I guess. *shrug* I just got up there and play and try to make people dance, while entertaining myself
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    i consider myself more of a dj/performer. Making remixes on the fly, playing my own remixes and edits. Just trying to get the people a different taste on the dance floor than your typical A to B mixing.
