I apologise in advance if I'm retreading all ground, my experience with this forum is somewhat limited. I've been spinning quite a few recorded sets recently and have found myself less and less able to cope with the MC's. Most notably this AMC + Carasel number: http://soundcloud.com/a-m-c/dj-a-m-c-on-4-decks-with-mc Now to be fair I never really notice MC's on the night, intoxication usual masks their offerings. But, when listening back to live sets I find it hard not to wish them away. However upon reflection I find it hard to imagine a night with absolutely no mic-based input, how would they be introduced!? At the end of the day the MC's are a separate entity and in my opinion do not complement the mix, but can live drum and bass ever work as a stand-alone show? Having never been to or seen an MC-less event I'd love to know if they are ever put on, or if promoters swear-by MC's as a tried and tested format.
