It's a different matter when a hammered dj has to excuse their sloppiness on needles jumping, equipment malfunctions, promoter's neglect etc.
Cos it's indicative that their state of inebriation is more important than the music and it's proficient delivery to the punters.
If they can't operate to a reasonable standard because they've overindulged, they should join the audience imo. Credit to those that do and take the ego bust.

One thing I really HATE is downloading a mix by someone and theres poor beatmatching, ruins the whole thing and is deleted straight away.
i agree that if someones off theri head and you have payed into a club to see them then yeah you have a right to be fucked off cos they shouldnt have gone mashed first , thats not on,
but i know when im on the radio, im a producer first and foremost so my DJin is not 100% up to scrath but when you are trying to man the phones, man the chatrooms etc you got someone stood next to you who always seems to talk when your about to mix or a cd/record skip, those things cant be helped and a bit of lee way shoudl be given to the odd mix, obviously if every mix is shit every time then you have a right to turn it off etc
everyone makes mistakes and when you are going for a good two hours straight, you cant expect it to be 100% perfect every single time
I really enjoy radio or local mash ups when everyone's just having fun & not worried. But that's different to when it's professional and there is an expectation. In that case, I reckon the djs have an obligation to stay reasonably straight or forgo the dosh and sit down.
Of course there is the odd spinner or a particular night when sanity is irrelevant but the pressure on some names seems to have them thinking that it can happen every night. Feel sorry for 'em really.
i mean as well sometimes the crazier the tunes are and the real deep ones just have some crazy timings that dont lend well too the easier mixing, its like trying to mix d n b or jungle, d n b is defintely easier to do a good wholesome mix with but then jungles the tits
i mean if im in a club and youve paid money i expect either really good tunes or really good mixing or preferably both but in general the scene is healthy if lots of peeps are trying there mixes out, taking risks and supportin the underground not just those who are beat perfeck every mix
i mean i like rowdy mixing for one, r-r-r-r-r--r-rewind!! ha ha
To be fair ive been pretty fucked behind the decks before and I can still mix no problem, Ive never disabled myself tho lol.
The worst is going b2b with someone wasted... (luthor and braidee take note lol) this has happened a couple of times and it does my fucking head in trying to explain to them that the cdj's are working fine and that the headphones are not "fucked"
is it!! sick bastard!! i saw you at party in the park in leeds when i was like 15 or summat!! "5ive will make you get down now , bring it on bring it on bring it on now!"Very HappyRusha wrote:

Some people can do it and stay focused but booze generally wrecks heads. An exception is when you're doing the 3-4 slot at an all-nighter - some proper long haul-business, and you need to stay awake. "One for the doctor" and all that...
- One deck not plugged in (didnt know this until it was almost too late)
- Crappy old needles with hardly any treble that sounded all wrong
- Weight on 1 needle arm was wrong so sound distorted & needle jumped
- Monitors out of sync so everything sounded like it was clanging - couldn't mix in headphones as they were distorting too much with 2 channels and I didnt know where the volume control was for them
- Dodgy half broken headphones kept cutting out and falling off
- No lights so had to keep putting mobile up to mixing desk
etc etc This wasnt the worst rig id ever played on tho - that had most of the above + 2 broken cdjs and virtually broken monitors it was pure embarassment made me look like a right plum! Fair enough if a DJs clearly steaming and cant mix for shit its not on but plenty of the time its more down to equipment than anything else and there's no way the audience would know that they probably just thought the DJ was shit! Anyone who says they wouldnt find it difficult to mix with all those problems is talking out their arse especially if they're not even a DJ!
