It took me 10 minutes to fully learn myself around the CDJ, you should've taken up that offer.

Hey B_BOP,

Couldn't have written it better myself, although mine would be set in Belfast. You're quite right, it was a total lifestyle, your mates would turn up with records, beers, and accessories for a night of mixing. Belfast was great in that the clubs closed at 2am, so there was a massive after club house party scene where all your mates are there, record bags in hand looking to play a quick hour set. You'd wait for Hairy Bear records to open then head down from the house party, buyin new tunes, buying really cheap food so you can afford to buy more vinyl.

You know I can remember the buzz you'd get when you were just started on a pair of shitty belt drive decks, and you finally after hours of practice gets the beats to line up and pull off a seamless mix; nothing like it at the time.Then you do it again, hands pumpin in the air, mates noodling in the background in appreciation.

A quote from a friend who showed me basics went something like this "at some point you'll get to a stage when you think about how and what to mix, and not if you can. You don't immediately notice, but when you realise, you're a happy man".


God I loved it; still love the music though. Now I'm 40, buy off Beatport, mix on Traktor, and playing is all about lightsabre battles with my 8yrs old son, and libraries and dollies with my 5yr old daughter.

Ladies and gentlemen ... this is "Debos" where AFROWookie been playing these epic gigs he tells us of





It's in Kalgoorlie


His status updates indicate a very large discrepancy in the length of time played as stated here ... as well as remuneration.

good
all we were saying is hone your skills first and learn as much as you can about the "art" of djing

good luck
but just remember is hard to balance two cdjs up on a pedestal without them crashing to the floor.

Where is you town AFROwookie, is it in WA or your head??

In Perth you say, which club?? I want to come and check out your MaD sKiLlZ wit de sync button!!

Seriously though, this thread has been a great read but at the end of the day I don’t really give a fuck how you put it together, vinyl, cd's, controller and software or sync button, choose your poison as long as its banging and the crowd is jumping who cares.
I started with vinyl and now use mostly cd's but I am considering Traktor or Serato for home so I don’t have to burn after dl'ing to play tunes straight away.

Choose what you use and enjoy what you do but if the you cant get the crowd rocking you may as well bin you $$$$ worth of equipment cause that’s what being a dj is all about, entertaining.

Most importantly don’t go fucking bitching on a forum about people who like to use a different format than you, it just not cool.

Next time politely tell the opinionated guy to fuck off and explain to him you like using your S4.

It's gonna be a busy year. You'd need to play for over 367 hours to afford that gear.

I feel sorry for the people of Kalgoorlie

oh my.

[history] i was earning $20/hr playing deep house to drunken fools in Geraldton 12 years ago. Obviously with the market saturation of "deejays" in todays environment has driven the price down in a classic case of supply and demand. [/history]

tip for young players: don't think that playing to drunken country folk makes you the next armin or surgeon. it just makes you a guy playing to drunken country folk

so anyway, back to the original topic of conversation.....

was playing in the sideroom at the digweed party on sat night.....15mins into my set my laptop decides to start glitching out and skipped (im assuming was way too close to the monitor speak / there was no where else to put it...)

so did i kill the sound & restart my laptop?

nope, pulled cables out and swtiched over to CD's, with pretty much no-one noticing (expect for when the sound signal skipped)

moral of the story, if you play off a laptop HAVE A BACK UP PLAN (which doesnt include silence)
