If you've got an hour spare, he goes into detail on what he does and what technology he is using to do it in this video;Muncey wrote:CDJ scratching blew my mind lol.

The latter. And it's also the most DJ friendly music. The tunes are often about 7 minutes long and pretty repetetive so you can do some nice, long blends with them. Dubstep and dnb and all that UK based stuff is too, but they're also more dynamic and build up/down much more in a much shorter timespan. So you have less time to fiddle and need to focus more on having the drops/breakdowns match and shit.ultraspatial wrote:Was going to ask this in the house forum, but this is a good a place as any. How come house and techno djs are so highly rated? Are those genres breeding grounds for better djs? Or does it have to do more with the fact that house, for instance, in whatever form, has a larger appeal to the average/casual club-goer, listener etc?
and this is just my opinion mind you...
turntabalism - obviously - is a mind blowing amount of technique
but I don't like having my music chopped up so much - for a long amount of time...it just doesn't groove
impeccible blending - incredible amounts of precision selection and just flat out turntable control
problem - songs that mix that smoothly over long periods of time have a tendency to sound the same
- no real movement or if there is movement - it happens over such a large amount of time - that I get bored
44xs are really not my favorite thing in electronic music...I can roll with it - especially when it's done well - but it has nothing on a breakbeat...
Now - if you have a funky beat - and bring in the right type of amen and it creates that mysterious third beat and then drops out
- to something atmospheric and beautiful and then comes back mutated and even crazier - now that is some shit
but I'm a junglist - so there you go...
when it comes to technical skillz, doorly fucking smashes it and what would you classify him as?
and when I look back now - I see that it was very industrial - NY/DC Hardcore Techno was very funky and very dark...love it

Back to the dark room with the really fresh sounds and the people enjoying the place like they plan to be there all night...without suffering a coolness aneurysm
once you know how to beat match you can beat match anything innit.
give me 2 dance records and i'll have it matched in under 5 seconds.
give me 2 records that have drums that aren't in time and i'm riding that pitch like i'm riding your mum.
