    Default Is it morally correct?

    Morning everyone,

    I'll be playing on this saturday quite a long set, 6 to 7 hours, and a friend of mine asked me if i could play some commercial music too. Since it is a party for a friend (and obviously I'm not asking for any kind of money) and I really don't like EDM commercial music, is it morally correct to """play""" a pre-recorded set for the first 2 hours (and have the time to spend some quality time with some chicks ...even if I won't, because I'm a sociopathic motherfu**er)?

    Have a nice day

    Its only lame if you are pretending to DJ while the pre-recorded mix is on.

    If you do that, then you further devalue the craft of DJing and give weight to the people who think DJing is all fake.

    Play the boring EDM before your set, then show people how much better your sound and flow is with your craft.

    Nothing wrong with letting the shite play so long as you aren't playing it (technically)

    that. And it includes fiddling with effects or eq meanwhile too.

    There’s also an almost hermetic community that exists in many areas of dance music, where serious hobbyists feed off each other’s expertise but barely connect to the industry – despite many of those involved actually working in it.

    exactly. nothing wrong unless you are pretending. I usually leave a set playing for the first hour while people are still coming and we are arranging the final details.

    It's fine, it's the jukebox concept - you've not officially started your 'set' yet!
