So, youve probably all seen these images going around and clothing and shit saying that DJs arent jukeboxes.

Do you all agree?

Personally I think if your request matches the style the DJ is playing, or the DJ produced the tune your requesting, theres no harm in it.

Discuss.

if someone came up to me and asked for a certain tune that fitted with what i was playing i'd defo consider it.

it just annoys me when people ask for something that is completely different to what you're playing

yeh, i honestly hate getting requests now, so many people ask for LMFAO or some other bullshit I've never heard of, don't keep up with pop dance music at all, and they stare blankly at me when I tell them I've never heard of them before.

might get a t shirt made with "NO REQUESTS" written on it!

I do sometimes ask DJ's for requests, but only a name DJ and a tune they've produced if I really wanna hear it.

Did anyone here the pause from a d Bridge set where he said "stop bloody asking for true romance VIP", pretty jokes!

I don't really like getting requests while I'm on stage, but I try to do my best and stick the tune in, if I have it and it fits my selection at least a little. And I have no problem playing a tune if someone asks me in before hand.

Requests are fine if it's a wedding or something like that, but if it's a big event and/or there's clearly a dedicated style they can be fucking annoying.

When I saw Delta Heavy a few weeks ago this guy who was absolutely mortal kept coming up to him showing his phone every 3 seconds, at first he was being friendly and saying he might play it but then the dude kept coming up literally every 5 minutes. He ended up ignoring him and the guy still kept coming up, by the end everyone on the DJ side of the decks was just shaking their head and telling him to fuck off.
