i dont think anybody listens to tapes anymore.. :)
except me..
but..
i think your talking about mixed cd's..
my perspective is..
a mix cd should be a blended (mixed) assortement of cuts selected by the dj,
to show his/her love for the music that they think should be hear..
secondary would be to display skills if needed,,or if that djs personality was like that,
i guess it would be music you like presented by your identity or whatever but it has to be mixed
and none of that serato, beatcounting, cd ish..vinyl only...and none of that bootleg vinyl either..
now
is just sloppy compilations
taco bell music
or people cheating like when singers go up there and lip synch..
etc.............

if your looking to make money..
i didnt think its going to happen,
unless you go somewhere where nobody has the internet and cant download it...
i think back in the day djs protected themselves with aka name and throwing the promotional label on the tape or what not, plus i guess it depednds on how much you sell or whatever,,but i dont know, i never really liked that whole making mixtapes for money deal..

blah blah jibba jabba,etc...i could talk for days on this..

i guess a blowjob is a blowjob from a man or woman as long as its good right..?
thats what it sounds like from what you said...

serato is weak..
you can never beat the sound of the needle on vinyl..never..
all these serato cats ..all they do is steal all there music and throw it on there pc and now are all like
yo ...im a dj..im ill...look at my computerized scratch..i can juggle yo..
im all for progress..but this is just killing the music more..
there's nothing faker than not owning..an original pressing of a record..as opposed to an mp3 you burnt..
even non offical represses where wack to have when dealing with vinyl..because you knew you were feeding the bootleggers..
an hurting the music more..
thats why the music died..these lazy as djs who wanted all there records for free..and didnt want to buy doubles of the vinyl..
the same lazy bastards that cant pick up what...like 3 crates?? thats like 5 hours..3 crates aint nothing...
pretty soon all your going to wind up is with a robot...playing your music..maybe you never heard or seen a real dj get down..
thats why you embrace serato so much..

me personaly i love digging and finding records..there a piece of the history.
test pressings..independent joints etc..even original samples..
i love vinyl..and grew up with the knowledge that a dj spins vinyl,,
on turntables..

not cd..not dat tapes..not mp3's

that shit to me is garbage...

if you cant dig for records..if you cant carry your own equipment and records..
then just give up...lazy cats just need to give up..

if you cant get down on the tables and need to click and point...

then what else can i say....

WE ARE TALKING ABOUT MUSIC NOT SEX
Don't try and take it out of context to make me look foolish!
You sound like the same ignorant people
that love 1200 tecs and think playing on any other turntable is whack right..?

I was just like you until about a year(year & a half) ago
I didn't start on serato yet
I dug for years and have over about 2000 records/500 cds/some tapes as well
now I'm not bragging cause I'm still young in the game
but I've been into music heavily all my life
I didn't like the idea of serato at first cause
of what it might do to the vinyl and music business
because essentially I was hoping to get into that business
Then I started to noticed DJs using it at shows and being able to see it's capabilities
and the fact that I was already using my mpc and other devices with my computer
So I bought it and met another dj who had also bought it a year before that
and got acquainted
It was fun and gave my vinyl a new space
now i could have doubles of records that were hard to find two of(and lots of new ideas to bring out for my whole music production)
RANE had done a great job they have done the dj community well
not just by making one of the best dj mixers out there(ttm57) they revolutionized what you could
do with a turntable
sure its not 100% accurate to vinyl yet but there working hard
the rane company as well is amazing to deal with
its like when belt drive turntables went to direct drive
are you salty about that too...?
The people who only download and don't buy vinyl
were using cdjs any ways
they are whack regardless if they have serato now or not
noting changed
I still buy records because of quality issues with downloaded mp3s
and I know all MY dj friends still do as well
Things change and for the better
music is getting better than it's ever been
producers like Danger Mouse and 9th wonder(many others)
are producing off computer programs to an amazing effect
are they not real cause they don't use an sp or mpc etc...?
Your treating people who use serato to be in some group
apart from real djs
what about
45 king
?uestlove
Jazzy Jeff
Diplo
Prince Paul etc,etc.
Are they whack now...?

If you can't stand people using the computer to make music
then YOU"RE the one who needs to give up
cause your too stubborn to get out of your hole and see
the outside for yourself!

fuck rane..
fuck yeah there wack if there using serato..
they could be pioneers and i can love there music..
but when it comes to djing..if there doing it the wrong way..
then am i supposed to be like you thats premo...
if premo is doing it..i should do it..
fuck that..

you shouldnt do what everybody else does..
if people want to be lazy then let them..

fuck that compressed sound..
you cant beat the vinyl clarity..

anyways..
you might think im a dinosaur or whatever...
but i accept change if that was something that would apply to the shit i already have..
then yeah,,

but that shit is guitar hero to a gibson..

and im cool w that..im not trying to change anybody's opinion..
i dont respect serato cats..
because there killing the artform..like people that dont buy music anymore..
which among other things is what killed good hiphop...

its all good...
records are cheaper for me...idiots are selling there collections...
pushing the little buttons..
because they cant carry a case or 2 of records..
which they cant even blend right...

so yeah..

guitar hero to a gibson is the bottom line..

how are you going to have a guitar and call it a piano..

with the notes already loaded in there...next thing shit will beatmatch it self..

and juggle with a button...

i mean im all organics..not messing with any robotical tendicies of these lazy, trendy cats..

but i really dont care what other dj's do...i really only respect one or 2...

Have you ever used serato..?
Your making it seem like it's gonna make you a dj over night
bottom line is if you can't scratch or juggle(etc)
your not going to be able to do it on serato either
unless you practice the same way
and guitar hero to a gibson..?
come on the only thing that's changed is the sound quality(if your using low quality mp3s)
Your still using vinyl the same you would with a regular record
I doubt you'd be able to notice the difference at club or on a mix
and killing the artform - don't go back this teird debut of the classic early 90s BS
yes hip-hop was making countless amazing albums from 88-95(we all know that)
but guess what times have change and you know what in some aspects it's way better
today
SO why dont you go back to using some shitty mixer and turntable set up from the 80s
just so you can KEEP IT REAL
It seems like your so ignorant to anything digital
like you haven't even used or began to go into any of it
only you'd rather go and rant on about it
No i don't do what every other djs does
its just I dont want to stick to old ways just cause I'm stubborn and lazy

and don't try and pigeonhole me
I was referring to those djs to show you that people who have been in the game can see the advantage of
using digital mediums

I understand your distaste for people not buying music anymore and I feel
for you in that respect, but most of the vinyl i own is used anyways so the only
one that's getting paid is the store(and guess what the majority of people that buy vinyl aren't djs)
I do buy a lot of new cd's though because i care about the new and old artists that
are making music great on whatever they choose to make it on.

and if you don't care what djs are doing and have done then stick to your
belt drive turntable and figure things out from there.
