I'm more concerned about you thinking that people who mix vinyl/serato only do it because it looks cool, than your actual level of talent. Seriously, it's a pretty stupid thing to say.

52. stand behind the dj booth drinking mineral water, while waiting hours before your set...and actually not mingle with the crowd. (which i know will not be possible at a massive festival or club gig)
a couple of my mixes:

kMoe - Rise Of The Moon Vol. 1

kMoe - Rise Of The Moon Vol 2

kMoe - The Seconds Before Launch

Deep ▼ soulful ▼ House

Sorry to break numbering system here guys, but why not? Z-Trip has managed it virtually every time I've seen him, I don't get why DJs don't get in amongst the punters. Just makes me garner a lot more respect for them when they do.
