we all make mistakes and art isnt perfect, its just there are somethings that can make a dj's performance sound better, and rarely do i see them do it... its always obsessive flicking of faders and over turning of the effects, its the act of being the dj that people want more... than blending two tracks together so smoothly one cannot hear a song was transitioned. i used to scout for a production crew back in the day. i used to write articles for raves and travel around doing community related stuff online and in real life relating...
my only real gripe is dj's not learning to master that damn pitch control... its the basics.
i get it though, i struggled for five year, till i found this ellaskins guy on youtube and watched his how to mix properly tutorials... they were technical and well advised and taught me a lot, i progressed very rapidly there after and can match records within a few moments, i can mix vinyls that are not my own... because i understand the grooves and can READ the record... most djs dont do this, i am old school, i just wish to see the art more often. its a manual craft like tig welding... walking the cup... as a pipe welder and fabricator, dj... i can attest to the hands on memory skill. i went out the other weekend and heard a few djs, some good some need a lot of practice. i just want to help.
i have collected this saying, true perfection seems imperfect but is perfectly itself. meaning perfection or beauty lies in the eyes/ears of the beholder. lol... i can hear a trainwreck a mile away. and i can hear the pitch wind up and down when a dj corrects it on the platter or spindle... facepalming
