Yeah, some DJs get way too much credit for what they do. The brunt of respect should go to the producers who make the tunes. Many DJ mixes or sets do not contain a single track that the DJ produced, hence what the strip says about many superstar DJs not doing anything more than the average head mixing in their bedroom seems fair enough.
since when do djs give concerts?
on concerts everyone faces the stage, to pay attention to whats going on there,
what with the artist playing and singing and that.
people face the dj booth on the dancefloor too but its just a general way to be facing,
which is comfortable to have in general and even more so if youre dancing alone. or maybe thats just me, but
the point is i couldnt care less what the djs doing behind the decks.
heres a question,
does he, like a real concert, have a pause between each tune (which he didnt make and didnt mix)
so that one may applaude him?
junkie xl comes to mind too, he plays festivals on the biggest stage with just him and his turntables on stage,
singing to his own tunes with great emotion in his face. who in their right mind wants to see that?
perhaps its a dutch thing?
there was even this one guy called 'luna the one man show' who capitalized the tiesto format,
he toured all over with his show and he wasnt even famous to begin with,
which youd think would be a prerequisit for something like this to work.
it isnt, you just have to sort of 'look' famous.
paying actual money to go to a concert with but one dude on stage playing air-drums and air-guitar
in front of a giant lasercrab and a spaceage cd-j table.
people arent even dancing, its jumping thats the order of the day on those events. sometimes with your hands
in the air, sometimes not. sometimes inbetween his own personal and most excellent illustration of
what-a-snare-roll-would-look-like-when-you-drum-it-on-a-drum-that-doenst-exist, and merrily skipping from one side of the stage to the other,
dj tiesto will gesture you to shout as well.
you have to hear tone people get in their voice when talking about their weekend,
'well i went to dee-jaay tiesto' with the smuggest facial expression you could possibly imagine,
almost expecting you to thank them for telling you.
its a kindergarden version of music and dancefloor culture and it makes, if i may be so bold as to say so,
a pretty clear statement on popular culture.
1: I think since they stopped telling people what DJ's actually do behind their equipment. Most people in those crowds don't even know what a slab of vinyl looks like.
2: Wouldn't be surprised man. Like I said, those guys just have to stand there and wave their hands into the air and act like bellends. The crowd don't know what the fuck he is doing, they could just let a cd spin in the background. Ironically, the #1 DJ in the world could be more selected on his jestering skills. So you wanna hit the top? a) have a smuggy smile b) have jestering skills c) make sure music runs in the background with simple melodies most shallow people like
3. Yeah scary thought to me, but looking at cunts like Ferry Corsten & Armin van Buren... it's a harsh reality.
Wicked comic btw!
pretty huge post and all i managed was basically to spell out what the comic strip said.
did have a few interesting points though, if i may say so my self, which i may and most certainly will. soon.
