don't let his modesty fool you, I've heard him spin some amazing sets on various occasions! all the best djs seem to shun the title because they're actually all around musical talents
yeah sometimes I spin music... I would never refer to myself as a DJ I am a musician or entertainer...
I share music and spin it often at large parties.. DJing its a paid hobby so I can work on my music.
just grab the records and work with them.... try different tricks... I dunno I really believe this DJ scene is one large bag of bologna!!!!
Don't get me wrong... I used to love to go out to clubs all the time and hear new music being spun, however today the DJ is a superstar and for what???? Mixing 2 simple beats together that they did not create???? Being someone who has had a past with the beginning of the rave scene as well as the industrial, etc underground dance movements, I can tell you it is important to have new music brought in to educate and push the culture ahead as well as mixing a healthy does of classics for nostalgia etc... Today, however far too many "DJ"s are getting notoriety for who knows what!!!!
Anyhow........... to answer your question, I have been known to have 3 turntables going with up to 2 cds all at once.... I belive it is my many years of being a drummer that help with my affinity for the beat!
None of it is magic... you can do it too!!! just practice... don't talk about what you want to do, or hope to do... just DO IT!!!!!
The same goes for music, art of any sort (unless we are talking chinese body contortionism!)
Well.. I have spewed out enough for this one reply!!
