    Haha, oh dear. Hype talks truth.

    LondonElek has come out of this whole dramas looking a bit of a congealed scab.

    98% of records are the same speed. why do i seem to be beatmatching so much. i'd say 98% of records are similar speed.

    The more I read about dnb icons bitching the more respect I lose for them. Shame.

    HYPE HYPE HYPE!

    What's funny is, the "REAL" djs aren't a dying breed! There's loads of us! It's just no one will give us a chance ahead of these pre-pitching fools and / or PRODUCERS who have never touched a pair of decks, yet are asked to DJ ahead of people who have grown up surrounded by vinyl as DJs!

    Does "Tactical" realy find stamina that hard to understand?

    Its their selection and inventive way in which they play the tracks which makes them good, rather than purely going from one track to the next, is it not?
    I mean, they r saying Andy C and Friction... so if friction was given andy's box and a set and was asked to replicate it to the T, i don't think he would do it first time round, maybe ever, who knows.

    Also (correct me if im wrong) but there must be ALOT more to this pre-pitched thing, otherwise whats the difference between mixing 2 CD's which r alredy at the same speed?

    meh anyway.

    see the only problem is. to get recognized in this business and get paid for sets on the highest level your gonna have to produce tunes that get released. if your a dj who wants to make it big and you don't know this yet.......:confused:

    you can't put someone down for not learning to dj and just producing. but then if they're serious about music, didnt dj, and went down the strictly production route, imo they should not pretend to dj but play a live set.

    Lol mate I am fully fucking aware, that's why I spend more time producing these days than djing, but I will always be a dj first and a producer second, but you gota do what you gota do ...

    Shame it's like that though, people who ONLY want to produce can produce and be successful, but people who ONLY want to DJ don't even get a look in ...

    Thats because compared to the amount of talent that is required for Producing DJ'ing, is minor. Dnt get me wrong I DJ myself and love it but if u look at it realistically with enuf practice any1 can DJ. IMO Production is what really requires true inspiration, talent and originality.

    I personally don't think the two should be merged together. Although I DJ and produce I would rather go see a DJ that can DJ like a pro than go see a producer who can DJ at an average level. You don't go to a rave to hear people produce you go to see the DJ so surely the more talented DJ's should get in the spotlight rather than the most talented producer?

    Yes anyone can DJ, but I don't pay my £20 to go and see anyone DJ, I pay to see the BEST, I pay to see Andy C rip it on 3 decks for 2 hours never missing a drop playing the freshest dubs and the fattest classics ... if "any1" can do that then we'd all be as successful as he is ...

    DJing drum and bass can be made into a fucking art form in the hands of the right person, clearly it's becomming a bit of a lost art on some people though ...
