Laidback Luke's take on DJs "doing the same sets over and over"
Holy Shit!!! Putting the DJs in charge of the pyrotechnics instead of synching them is a great idea to stop this De Ja Vu rubbish! Like honestly, if there is a way the technicians can hook it up to a button for the DJ's i don't see why not! Anyways Laidback Luke & A-trak are two of the very few still practicing the art of DJing.

Laid back luke just loves djing, I saw him last year at the old sheds and he had to be escorted from the decks because he went about 30 mins over his set time he just wanted to play

The crowds watching these DJs are to blame.

I reckon he meant to say, " a large part of the general public are mindless drones who can't think for themselves, they are happy to pay top dollar to be shoveled up the same old shit, set after set, festival after festival and the new breed of producer/dj are happy to do it because they don't know where the previous dj's arse ends and their lips begin"

"Okay kid, this is your shot, if you mess this up, we%u2019re probably not going to book you again, but if you do good, we%u2019re going to make you big in this country!%u2019 Having 13 years of DJ experience, I can manage stuff like that. It%u2019s cool to surprise people, coming from an underdog position.%u201D"

Midi clock synched pyrotechnics wouldn't be too hard to implement (i would imagine). I mean, look at the extent of stage shows these days, a la deadmau5, etc. But unfortunately its the replayed-cheese-anthem drivel which is driving this EDM boom. Can't blame them for giving what 'that crowd' wants.

for sure dennis. Just getting regualer gigs doesnt mean at all your are good.

Infact someone who has played out a lot but hasnt got better is a tonne shitter then a rookie dj imo.

Why does ITM keep looping the same story about absolutely shithouse DJs saying DJs are shithouse?

Laidback Luke's take on DJs
The conflict that we're seeing there is now there's a machine of sorts involved with the intent of capitalizing in a huge way.. I won't say "off the scene" because it's not the scene we once referred to, it's their scene... There are huge PR campaigns at play... The traditional DJ and related skills really are somewhat of a hindrance to this new "EDM Monster"... Why? Because they don't play well with others... They have opinions - hard won opinions... They call people out. They name names and blow covers and drop dimes in interviews... They have values (or often do)... They make others feel bad... Basically, they're bad for business, and much of it is connected, i.e. from MIDI Controller manufacturing and sales, Software Development/marketing, Online mp3 sales, Festivals, as well as certain blogs designed to 'cover' those subjects. Oh, and big label "interests"... It's not at all that there's only one or two left... It's just if you bring "The DJ back", he'll have everyone questioning themselves and each other.... and they "don't need that"... and it's unlikely that you will see too many in the coming years either, as they're trying to make just the idea of a "traditional DJ" extinct... Trying to fake people into thinking that "controllerism" is DJing... or like turntablism and djing are the same thing... They do that too so you heavily associate the Turntablist, who started out or can't be denied being a DJ, okay, but there's the fake... Two different hats... A good turntablist has mad skills, and puts on a show... and nothing to scoff at, but in turntablist mode they've taken off the DJ hat, call them DJ So and So still, but there's an overall fakery trying to be pulled on the masses... There comes a certain point where you can't control a seasoned jock what to do or how to do it... AND, you can't sync pyro to a DJ who is being a 'real DJ'... ...and nobody in their right mind would give pyro control - to me... let's say.. :-) or any other DJ... Liability... Also, of the significant (and well respected amongst their peers) DJ's that are out, working regular and doing their thing, there's a bunch that just wouldn't take the sort of gig that includes synced pyro... Put it this way, if there's synced pyro, more chanes than not, it's a pantomime that the DJ is doing... Laidback Luke may have his shit worked out, and that's cool - whatever one does, I guess... It's just that there are conflicting notions at hand, and 'out there' and being pushed and/or passsed around... It's like this: Don't go to Disney Land if you wanna see The Pope... DJ's and how they're being discussed here... They're not going to be well represented on the main stage... Find a tent... Any tent... If you want to see skills well-represented, find someone playing that doesn't have the laptop between them and the crowd... RESULTS MAY VARY... ;-) I'd say more what I felt, but 'today' i don't wanna be 'that guy'... If you were to just believe me when I say "badass, real, practicing DJ's are still very much 'out there'... Go find them... If you were to do that, the "issues" would eventually come quite apparant... Figure it out... It's worth the effort....
