    I'm just curious, when producers and dj's decide that they move away from dnb, and don't go into other areas of electronic dance music, where do they go?

    dunno ^^^

    depends, im sure. dont know how many units you have to shift or gigs you have to play, but im sure people like hazard, netsky, camo&krooked and lots more surely just cant do a job, making a tune every week and playing 2 gigs every weekend.. dunno really, but i think you could make a decent living out of that.

    Very true, most DJ's dont survive purely on producing/Mixing anyways.

    netsky gets like 2k for a big event, so shouldnt be that hard to save something up. 8 gigs possible in a month => 16k + sales/month. with netskys sales you easily should be able to get 15k a month minimum without any real stress, even if you cant play 8 big events..

    so i assume, yeah. enough to hold for retirement.

    If this is true I can see him very quickly getting a bit too big for his boots.
