It was actually me that came up with the deaf in one ear excuse. It came to me when i was watching All Gone Pete Tong. I mentioned it to Stevo and now he uses it. He didnt ask if he could but i dont mind, we are all friends at the top you see.
I want to build a bridge between white people and black people.

I used to live with a slag of an ex-gf who didn't like me blasting EDM until 4am in the morning on a school night so I would do what he's talking about, only in my headphones. So in other words I would be listening to the master track in my headphones while beatmatching & cueing the next track by just looking at wavelength and BPM counter. These days on CDJ2000's u can't fucking miss.

Lost hearing in left ear, continues to put himself in environments loud enough to cause damage to surviving ear. Righto.

But how would he a) know where the first beat in the track is (not every track will autocue on the first beat and b) ensure the track is matched when he brings it in? I can understand once they are both sounding through the master you could monitor it with your ears but how would you bring it in smoothly?

Pioneer Rekordbox solves any cueing issues. He probably works off hot-cues anyways, because a lot of his mixes are really tight and quick.

@Ben Royal, all their tracks are edited to perfection for mixing... in fact, the way they manage consistent multiple mash ups (not that amazing, but hey, people are impressed) is by editing every track they mix with to a perfect 128bpm. And sure, then it isn't very hard beatmatching without headphones. if it sounds a little out on the way up, jog it a bit... u know the bpm is right.
sorry, but thats cheating.

It's easy to know your records when you've been rotating the same 12 every set for 3 years

I have done the odd mix with out headphones when I was in a rush. It's really not that hard. At around 128bpm 1 bpm = 0.75%

The problem here is that even if he really was DJing, he's doing virtually nothing anyway except putting his hands in the air and playing really crap commercial music... so what's the difference? Bring back the real DJs in the world that have skills a la Farina!!!

If its not so hard, why does it take three of these muppets to do a SHM set.

Why do you all get so mad at them? Fuck man play where you play and play belter sets and be happy. Most of you arnt going to make it huge like me so do what you do and stop complaining about every other dj.

So . . . first it's a "medley mix" . . . then it's a deflection cum sob story about his ears going all "Pete Tong" on him? And yes, he could be fakin' it. Who's gonna tell on him? The festival promoters making duckets on his name? His labelmates? His boyfriend? Festivals aren't rave-clubs or raves. There's barely proximity between the god and his apostles, let alone the worshippers.

Throw him in a club where 200 people fit snuggly, where the tables are on the ground-level, and it's him, 2 tables, a mixer, and a monitor, and let's put it to a test. Yeah, at 12, he may have learned to DJ. I learned how to play bass and guitar at 11. Played for 3 years. Well, too. I can't play for shit now, but I can air-guitar with the best of them.

Maybe instead of trying to DJ while you're hearing is going shot, you do what other musicians do - take some time off and not film a freakin' video?

Sounds like his mixes are all big fades anyways, which is pretty much what they were talking about when they say "fake". I'm pretty sure it's OK for people to expect someone they are paying so much cash to see at least has some skills to back it up.

i believe him, also. i can do it, it's not a mind-blowing or impossible feat. there are sad individuals out there who want to be the ones to catch a conspiracy or spot a dj doing something that proves that it can't be that easy. why? because THEY CAN'T DO IT.
