The difference..

I was out clubbing last night, and i was on the dance floor and i looked up at the DJ, and then i thought to myself.. if a dj was playing at a club and dropped something new, would they get a better reaction at a club? or a better reaction at an actual music festival.. In a club no one pays attention they just dance whatever, though at a festival there are waves of people who just focus on the dj and the music! Thoughts?

Re: The difference..

I don't go to clubs but I think I'd probably rather hear something new in a club setting as opposed to a show. Were I at say, for example / talking purposes, a live Cure show and they started playing new shit I know I'd rather hear the classics. But if I were at a club and the DJ dropped in a new song of theirs into his set that I had yet to hear I'd probably eat it up.

Re: The difference..

I'm sure I would have say, it depends. You are asking a vague question. I have been to many musical festivals and usually they consist of many different acts, newer acts, well known artists, DJ's etc. I think RFJ is right, if it is a group that is known for a certain sound people will have expectations.

Club settings probably depend upon the venue and the crowd. From my experience DJ's tend to vibe off the crowd, so if they feel a certain crowd would go for something they will play it.

If you are in a big commercial meat market club chances are the patrons are not really paying much attention to the intricacies of the music...does it boom, can I dance. LOL. When I was at a bigger club last most people were just standing around, drunk, talking to other people. A few people, myself included, tried to dance to the solid dub step but it's tough, I'm not a robot you know?

Wow, that was rambling...:/

Re: The difference..

Average person doesn't care about music, if it has a melody and a kick, it's good.

I'd imagine you'd have a larger impact in a club, if you mean festivals as the big outdoor thingies. If it's just a random club, I am sure there's no one who goes there only because of music.
I don't go to festivals else they consist of 100% "underground" music.

To different people every tune will be new, pretty boring club if a new tune stands out that much.

Aint that the truth. The same people that wear Dr Dre Beats and fill in their favourite music as "I like anything with a good beat.." bloody rotters [ /snobbery ]

There's so many songs out there that if I hear something at a club I've never heard before - I've got no idea whether it's a new tune or an old tune I'm hearing for the first time. Doesn't matter at all to me really - I'm there to have a good time & dance & chat & shit. If it's live bands or things like that then yeah it's probably a bit different.

Neither. People hate anything that they haven't heard 25 times already, unless it's practically identical to something that they have heard 25 times.

Re: The difference..

Generally speaking, keeping tabs on labels and releases is something dj's should do but the average partygoer probably wont, or at least not to the same extent. If you know youve got a somewhat 'learned' crowd i wouldnt play all of last years famous hits (in whatever genre applies) but i dont think theres ever a need to go OCD on this weeks releases.

Re: The difference..

And that said, quality and good vibes are either there, or theyre not. I understand this whole 'top 10' every month tradition cause i guess it shows your in there doing your thing, keeping up, but sometimes a month passes with 15 terrific tunes, sometimes with 2, and thats what it is.

Re: The difference..

I do not go to clubs wery often. But I think that it does not matter where you hear that new shit. If it is good, than you will like it anyways, does not matter if it is a club or festival or some other thing. If you like it you will hear it.
