who does these? and who's good at it?
i know mystery jets do,i had them play a night i put on once.
but whom else?
So much so i'd much rather see him play a set than watch LCD Soundsystem.
The culture of indie celebs DJing is really annoying. I mean you might as well make a playlist of indie hits on itunes.
I want to resrict the term DJ only to those that can beat match everyone else has to be described as 'playing CDs'
No, they play an excellent mix of what you'd least expect them to.
blaine from mystery jets was great tho.he mixed and didnt play an endless list of the obvious hits.it was really electronicary(if thats even a word)
Beatmatching is just one tool in the competent deejay's arsenal. The most important thing is what records you play with respect to the dancefloor you're dealing with. You can do that well without beatmatching.
But you're right that most celeb deejays are the pits. They just turn up and play a pre-rehearsed set. Lousy.
Loads of cheesy hip hop, pop music and indie tracks.
any more for any more? i thought dis users would know loads!
klaxnos have done quite a few too.
mogwai did one a few months back didnt they?
iv not acually seen any of these though
their bugged out/in mix is really good acctualy. Some real beastly dance floor bombs on that.
I've been to a Streets DJ set, but I think it was just him with his mates behind the decks.
Bloc Party are meant to be pretty good. As in, they can actually mix and stuff.
