on friday i played my first party on ddj800. 30 people, I consider it a total misfire, when one person asked me for a song, then the other asked if I had nothing normal, the genre that appealed to them was shallow. How to stay motivated when the audience wants total crap, and to educate DJ skills you have to play that crap.

there's 3 approaches afaik.

1, spin what they want under a different alias, so you can develop your skills, whilst under another alias you use those skill to develop a name for yourself with proper music online/elswhere

2. compromise, spin what the crowd wants whilst on and off "educating them" with some proper stuff.

3. be stubborn and hope it works out in the end. So just spin your stuff and either get fired or blow up

I will not give up for sure, one thing I know is the pace of 140bpm + live music for fast dancing (I like it |) criticism is part of this passion (I do it for free) I expected it would not be easy but it exceeded my expectations. I envy the people on the stage where nobody has the right to criticize, only the crowd and the crowd winds each other up, one person is enough to stimulate the crowd to have fun. 'DJ'. Although the stage is probably just a challenge ... a long way



thanks for the post, I needed that

one thing was very interesting grandpa on the dance floor! not only that he played the most lively with each girl, he preferred trance atmosphere <3 :D
