So everyone has been posting the article by DJ Zimmie. And know doubt its a good read with great facts. I have many opinions myself, I’m not to sure what it all means. But here are my thoughts.
If you haven’t read it you can check it here - The End Of DJing
It’s funny because in my opinion a lot of the people I see posting it don’t even realize they are the problem. They are the same ones that are in the club that only want to hear ‘EDM’.
And the thing is with that while there is still a lot of good stuff out there, that isn’t even real house music anymore. Real house music to me is songs like ‘At Night’ by Shakedown or the ‘So Much Love’ remix by Milk & Sugar that is essentially just a sample of the original disco track ‘Love’s Such A Wonderful Thing’ by The Real Thing. However the ‘EDM’ is just one example. There are things like that with all genre’s of music right now.
Ask youself when was the last time you saw a band play and you didn’t know one song, but you had a great time. If you can’t think of an answer your probably a product of the problem; which is you don’t think for yourself, you only do what your told is cool, and or society declares as cool.
The problem is it’s a catch 22 with us working DJ’s we can try to educate our crowd and play the good stuff, but at the end of the day if we are not getting the job done the bar will just find some freejay to play the hottest songs off his laptop with the click of a button. People just wanna hear Drake say Versace a lot, and rap out of time.
We are at the peak of a technology revolution where information is easy accessible at the tips of our fingers. It’s been the greatest thing, and the worst thing to ever happen.
Example daft punk comes out with an album. People post they hate it. Why because through the entire album none of the songs ever have “The Drop”. And that was the intention. If you did your research you would learn that the goal of the album was to make dance music, as if the internet did not exist. With real instruments and real emotions, and feeling. Working with producers such as Nile Rodgers, and Paul Williams.
I’m not sure what is the exact point I am trying to get across, however I am just saying I don’t know if there is really any hope for music to become something we played rather than Frankenstein together on a computer with the all important “quantize” button.
At the end of the day were all trying to make money and do what it takes to be successful. Hopefully things can one day change for the better. I feel all of us as DJ’s are not helping the situation but there isn’t much we can really do. Just try to be the best possible DJ you can be and while playing the songs people wanna hear try to respect the craft as well.
Thanks to everyone who came out and supported on Friday night! It was a great time! Thanks again to Drew Pierce, Donk, and Simo for being a part of the mix this year. I have already got a lot of great feedback. If you haven’t got a chance, to hear it or couldn’t make it out Friday night. The download link is posted below.
