Where Have All The DJs Gone?
I never understood what producing has in common with DJing
DJing is L I V E-ACTION, mixing music once and LIVE, intuition, great knowledge of music, empathy for moods and people. Producing is more like fuzzy office work: highly interesting, but still office work.
There are superb Mixes of bedroom-DJs on the web, who don’t know a thing on producing, and there are lousy DJs among the top producers. I’ve never understood, why club-owners hire good producers as DJs.
Today, it’s even more bizarre: Kids from celebs and other strange people, who have no feeling for music and can’t even mix with auto-sync, get high-paid gigs.
