    Please don't kill the EDM scene. What will DJs do without clubs?

    That's pretty much what it has turned into.

    Make good music?




    ... seriously though, its all part of an evolving culture, but I wouldn't worried. There's always gonna be a place for entertainment, especially these days with so many 1st problems to wanna escape from & so many forms of social media to communicate ourselves to the said escapes. If anything, I'd say the problem has more to do with shitty music getting all of the attention while the majority of people (even those who're a fan of the genres) WTF entirely at me when I mention how awesome people like BT are.

    Again though, that's what everyone says about less popular music that they like until it becomes popular, at which point it starts to suck, as seen by the late Carly Rae Jepsen hate.

    "Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my pen*s, so kiss it maybe."

    Nah, I don't hate that track. But I have to admit, it's kindda stupid.

    I loved the song when I first heard it, then even more when I realized I was right about who it was, but then it started being the only thing I recognized while listening to non-country radio, so I'm takin' a break from it.

    who cares about poor old thieving DJ's not being able to play "other people's" dance music at clubs!

    maybe now Dj's will stop ripping off people's music and finally get out there and actually make some original stuff of their own.

    and heck maybe they could even pull together and open up their own place of business to scratch other people's music.

    just a thought. :)

    Hey now. Firstly, I'm and DJ and I'm definitely not old. Secondly, playing other people music is a privilege given to DJs. It's a type of advertisment for the original artist.

    just because a person claims to be a DJ doesn't make it so.

    just sayin.

    DJ's are made every 20 seconds thanks to DJ Hero and virtual DJ.

    now anybody with a laptop or ipad can be a DJ.

    So if you ask me I think DJs are killing their own scene all by themselves, due to over-satuation.

    just my 2 cents.

    If it sounded that way, it wasn't the intention.

    Was just stating an opinion

    nice set-up dude. my buddy ish has somewhat a similar setup. I used to help him set-up alot, even made some flyers for him. cool dude.

    I'm sure you've got some nice beats too. hopefully I can see some on your youtube.

    Anyway folks sorry to stray off-topic lol.

    But yeah I still think most DJs out there are kinda killing their own scene due to overly saturated DJs out there. I'm sure the DJs here understand what I'm trying to get at. a new DJ is being born every few minutes due to how easy it is to acquire the programs. and the music itself is even easier. lots of DJs sadly use the same stuff, nothing much new out there to use. so I can see why so many clubs out there are welcoming the much newer music that's in right now, ans starting to phase out the older stuff.

    most folks today have such short attention spans that their brains are always craving new things to keep them occupied. what's in today, will be phased out next month and so on. There is no sense of culture anymore. due to scenes always changing.

    I have to agree with you here. I got a friend who saw me DJ and downloaded a program called Virtual DJ and uses the sync button along with the automix button and goes "Hey look! I can DJ!". It sorta insults us DJs that actually do the hard work beatmatching by our ear.

    see. stuff like Virtual DJ have single-handly made it so DJ's are no longer being taken seriously.

    then you got folks that just use a notebook or an ipad and do similar things. to prove how simple it is to DJ using anything, my friend Ish used his Sony PSP.

    I'm sure someday people will be able to do it using their android smartphones. :/

    Not everyone uses computers to DJ. I use music that is burned onto a CD. Murasame & DeathsheadII use vinyls and turntables to mix. (Yes, those are real members on this forum).

    I do play with vinyl now and then but I prefer using my CDJs.

    As I have heard, electronic dance music always had it hard in the US, although big names like DJ Rush, The Horrorist and Lenny Dee originate from America, as well as the roots of Techno being in Detroit, created by Juan Atkins and Derrick May. Sad to see that most of the big game is just everywhere else in the world but not the US. As a kid I always wanted to live in America, but as I've grown up, I don't want this anymore just because of the dominant music in America. I would die.
