a couple of things ive noticed what i do are:

when you try and match your indicator to the beat of the music...

fast forward mixes just to hear the transitions...

what do YOU do?

You emulate a scratch using your steering wheel.

You tap your brakes in time to the music so the person behind you knows what tempo the music is your listening to.

You tweak the bass knob on your car stereo to cut the bass then smash it back on to add excitement to a track.

you get pissed off walking around shopping centres because you can hear the songs from different stores and all of them are out of sync
I end up in a quivering mess on the floor crying because it annoys me so much.....


You are VERY VERY pale


Your bank statment reads something like this:
Beatport $70
O/Seas currency conversion $4
Trackitdown.net $50
O/Seas currency conversion $4
ATM withdraw St.George Kings cross $250
Beatport $70

etc etc

That and you have sex with loads of hot chicks and you have a massive cock and you are super cool and you know everything about dance music and you can pick cheese a mile away and did I mention you are SUPER SUPER COOL and you have loads and loads of friends.......i musn't be a dj yet.....

but that's the OCD showing through

I used to find synchronised blinkers entertaining when I was a kid. I was born to be a DJ. An out of work one anyway.

When you go to a festival and get seriously munted or wasted .. and wake up the next morning and remember every single track that your favourite DJ dropped .. When they dropped it .. how they dropped it and how good the mix transition was ...

...when you find yourself 'air-tweaking' in sync with the DJ

(Pretending to tweak the EQs as if you were mixing yourself)

^ I know a guy who spent a post-Digweed afterparty munting in a corner, re-living the entire set in his head. Every track, every mix, silently bopping away. Fucking hardcore fan.

i try not to do it too much in public spaces so i don't look like a twat ... but sometimes it's just a reflexive thing

you know your a dj when your listening to a live set and you can key in to every little detail of what they are doing.

you know your a producer when your listening to a track and you completely break it down and listen to every single noise seperately as well as the track as a whole.

shit habit of mine,

When you're in the booth racking up on a girls arse whilst her twin sister is playing your skin flute.


True story.
There is pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.... Lord Byron

You have a permanent black ring stained over one ear from your headphones. You can listen to two things at once (handy in social situations). You never have any money. You're going deaf at 21. You have a slight pot belly etc etc.
