    Is it me or is it that dnb dj's tend to dance behind the decks a hell of alot more than other dance music genre's?

    Its obv that hip hop dj's do exactly that (hop from one deck to the other) aswell as groove a bit when theyre beat juggling. But i don't think u will ever see tiesto or carl cox or ricardo villiliolililibolosososos skanking like andy c does when theyre hot in the mix. The most u will get out of them lot is light head nod.

    I personally find it imposssible to not bounce a little or rock back and forth when mixing. Any1 else?

    You are a performer when you are on stage. It is your JOB to be entertaining. If a DJ put a track on then turned his back to the crowd and waited until the track was done, you would be disappointed.

    Friction does THE BEST wiggle I've seen! He gyrates his bum!
    And I love Andy C's head nodding sorta thing that he does & when he puts his hands in the air. Makes you go more mad I reckon seeing the DJ going for it.
