the MC's should get as much aprechiation for there efforts as the DJ's?
and i know its all about the music but MC's are here for a reason.
Hate to say it but I see dnb going the way of hip hop. All about the mc and forgetting the beats.
for me theres nothing worse than an mc who just doesnt shut up. A bit of hyping up the crowd here and there is good, but when they spit constantly its just annoying, especially over a drop. Rant over hehe
don't get me wrong, i'm all for mc's in some respects, i've got nothing against them. they can definatly make a set sound lively. but i genereally find the type of mc's i enjoy are ones that let the music ride, and aren't rhyming over 99% of the track.... sp, gq, dyna, system....
i think it's different if it's a radio set, think mc's should probably go for it and have it, as it gives the people something to pay attention to. so by all means, doin stop chattin.
studio sets.... i think a bit of both is needed. some 32 bar spits, some backing off. let it breath, show us what you go, but don't go over the top.
live, i think it's similar to studio sets, with a bit of added crowd hype, and generally bigging up the dj for what he's doing right there and then.
because with out the dj, it'd just be some bloke on a mic. and that's not a good look.
