I can mix tunes randomly on the fly and make all work not a problem,
but I have over 3000 trance tunes and similar in progressive and then a large house collection, but needs some attention, saving for larger SSD drives and one for each genre, at present they are all on one drive on my pc, but yes I can mix and match or stick to same genre, and be quite flawless not a problem. but when I move into wanting to consistently do long mix transition and not talking first section or a bang bang etc and in, I prefer to get really interesting combination and let them play for a minuet or eve nearer too two on occasion overlapping first breaks, stepping up as we go into next section and so on until the big break or breakdown. but their is a difference in doing a good mix and almost a remix as the opposing tracks blend and weave etc, this is were anybody is better to use the Tech to its full use to achieve this type of mix almost every time. On top of that yes is easy to throw songs together, but to go above and beyond a good basic mix and taking into consideration the whole flow of the mix and maybe being able to mix really interesting tracks here and their you may not expect yet still make it fit in the mix smoothly ( cant really explain the complexity in my thinking )
its an art.
anybody can throw similar beats together and have a standard set like most do, that bores me silly and in a club its hard to find DJs that excite they all the same to me and dull, i always try to not go for the obvious beats, but on the fly no Guarantee it will be Epic and flowing for the entire mix. so in a relaxed environment on the fly fun and I can push everything, take even more risks and learn in a organic manor, really mate it all no big deal, but to try and categorise every DJ or even understand that DJ (or not a DJ ha ha !) and dictate a narrow minded ideal is so stagnating in my eye.
and play for the crowd is a big no!, only time maybe with friends at home as they get to know certain tracks they like, but all my life its about escapism i just don’t want to hear the same ole same, party party party hah ah makes me cringe, as do the boring easy sets that don’t go any ware or have character, Sorry pal I just don’t dig your way of thinking, I am not a DJ, I am that kind of DJ so get over it please, you will never understand only few do, can be all words about nothing but I have a strict Discipline and many ways of working, i encompass all, time and a place for it all.
Just waiting on a possible upgrade with the set list hopefully, and I can start adding even more in the mix and utilising all four channels and sampling with layers B, and yes I can mash it all up on the fly much fun, but to take it up many levels and be a legend in your own right does take the utilising of the tech, its 2020 wake up and why not go and ask a DJ in a major event to play for the crowd and what you want to here, think he will be bothered, in some sense but 99% of the time you wont get time of day, they will play what and how they want, end of, so I say politely your the wrong type of DJ that’s how we have always seen it in such comments, your just plain wrong. a migraine coming on having to turn my mountains into your mole hills, but a majority don’t get it and cant see past their own way.
I don’t mean to be insulting in anyway, its all small talk and just my way of thinking about myself and justification here in, nothing personal. (what is a persons Definition of a DJ) Figure it out in 2020, their is so much to be and that can be with an open mind.
each to their own, I help others but never diss them, respect no matter what music and their skill level even if I hate the music, their is still a respect for a fellow music lover .
