I wouldn't have any sort of problem with playing any sort of tearout dubstep/dnb or underground stuff, but 128bpm mainstream house for several hours fucks you up really bad. Play something else than Vevo-stuff and *BAM* dancfloor is empty. Those tracks are also so damn easy to play it just seems stupid. Without touching sync-button ever, drinking beer with your other hand, and not even always listening to new tracks before a gig, you're still able to get things right enough for drunken teens since everything is exactly at 128bpm, has the same song structure and the same tonal color.

It was still good practice + some bonus income, but didn't really enjoy it much, apart from learning. We don't have many clubs/bars over here in southern Finland where it's beneficial to play non-mainstream stuff, and even less (if any) places where you can play dubstep.
do radio

play what you want

it's mad for me trying to imagine a dj playing music they don't want to play
