Re: ITT Ask Me Anything About Being A Professional DJ(House music/Travelling/Clubs/Parties etc)

Ok here is a mix.

http://www.sendspace.com/file/ue4cik

fwiw when I do answer these Q's I kinda just go with whatever is on the top of my head. Then they get tl;dr . . .So hopefully they are not too rambly / boring. If u want shorter more precise answers then say so. I'm used to answering questions like this vocally so it becomes this whole stream of consciousness thing which may not translate so well written out. At least I'm not being misquoted by some journalist...They allllllllllways do that. Anyways I'm off to a gig will answer more whist donkamenting tommorow if I don't get 2 involved with anything tonight

edit - I'm not sure you guys will be into this mix but at the very least it may clear up what "true" house is and show what I do.

Re: ITT Ask Me Anything About Being A Professional DJ(House music/Travelling/Clubs/Parties etc)

thanks for the detailed reply!

i don't stop being amazed what people approach dj's with. haha@the mobster

as for your setup... it's cool--and mostly standard, i guess. should you ever go dvs, i say traktor >>> serato though

i really like that recloose tune! my fav house track in 2009 was probably house of house - rushing to paradise (walkin' these streets), btw. it seems you play more uptempo stuff, though. that's somehow v common in the us where i often hear house djs play, idk, 124-128bpm. it's funny, in europe, many house djs play 120-122bpm max. in fact, in berlin, even slower stuff (e.g., Motor City Drum Ensemble, Tensnake, Floating Points, Nicolas Jaar) is hawt.

lastly, cheers on mentioning classic was one of your fav labels. same here..

Yeah. The lol thing is that people don't take the other 100-1000 or whatever # it is of people in the room. V selfish and V donkish. Like...I know there has been 4 to the floor dance oriented music playing for the last4 hour but can u put on some slayer? Fwiw that is the weirdest request I ever got...Slayer. The most common is "when are you gonna play some hip hop / beyonce / Rhianna" etc. Lol Donkaclubbers.

That house of house track is dope. Sounds like old school balearic stuff. I never heard that track tho so thanks. Seems the whole disco / roots revival is pretty strong right now.

Sorry I did not do a better job or telling you my fav club or fav track of 2009 was but I'm kind of just a fan of whatever I'm a fan of at the time in terms of tracks and parties. IE I went threw so many cool tracks in 2009 and those were some that came to mind but if I looked threw my book I could easily name 20-50 more. Id have to think of fav vocal cut, fav tracky cut, fav funky cut etc etc etc. I do remember my fav's from the past few years tho.

Labelwise nothing is super consistent anymore tbh or at least not from the stuff I play. I tend to just go threw track after track and grab what I like...But never really notice a specific label always popping up. Compost for a while tho.

I'm more in the 126 to 128 and even 130-132 when things start to get out of hand with the trackier stuff harder more jackin stuff.

Classic was dope for many years then kinda became meh and then stopped.

And tonights gig was supppppppper lame. One of those parties there was tonnes of hype about and barely anyone shows up. Sigh. Home by 4 am and on 2p2 fml. Who wants to play HU???

Re: ITT Ask Me Anything About Being A Professional DJ(House music/Travelling/Clubs/Parties etc)

Nice thread, I got some questions too

What is your opinion on the whole beatmatching vs auto-sync debate?

Do you miss hanging out at record stores? Talking to other Dj's, the digging etc.

Do you feel that the likes of David Guetta, Lady Gaga and Kesha are a good thing to the house music industry? As a way to slowly introduce people to house music.

How do you mostly find new tracks? I assume you do not just download the weeks top10 from beatport? Promo pools?

How did you get started/first gig(s)?

I'll probably have more questions after this when I think of more.

Never met him. Been around him and he does not seem V social or perhaps hes just a shy/quiet bloke. An old friend of mine tho who tours internationally on the regular when he first started touring in the UK used to stay @ John Digweeds house when he went over the pond. John still lived with his Moms @ the time and his mom would make them toast and tea in the AM when they got home coming off of E/whatever they were on . She'd say "now get something good in you" or something to that affect. Kinda funny lil quip. haveI met Sasha and he's a cool guy.

Even though I mostly do not like progressive house Northern Exposure 1 - esp Disc 1 is a sick mix.

Not something I love to discuss with even close friends. Never felt comftorable talking about it for some reason but I have always been fair in what I charge or when I have agents what they charge. It all depends on the size of the room (how many it fits) and what they charge at the door. I never got on a plane for (after I started gigging tht way) less than a certain XXX$ amount also because even though It's cool to get flown around...It IS also work and the gigs sometimes suck so you want to get properly paid for your time.

You get what you negotiate...Not what you are worth which can sometimes be less than you are actually worth or more. Once u become a "professional" it's good to have some sort of business sense because this is what you do for a living and there are "downswings" where you don't have as many gigs.

I never made crazzzzzzzy $$$ regularly but there were times in my career where I was what I considered to be v well paid for who I was (name wise and whatnot). There are some DJ's who are just paid ridiculous ammts of $$$. Like so overpaid it's not even funny but...If they can get it...Why not I suppose. The whole overpaid thing has calmed down in the last few years but I have heard of dj's getting anywhere from 25k to 1 mil for a single gig. 25k was even a standard fee for allot of the "big names" for a while.

Lastly RE$$$ I think it's amazing to get paid to do what you love to do...But getting paid for your ART can also be a curse as you become so accustomed to it that sometimes you forget that the reason you do this and started doing this never had to do with $ at all.

Just kidding.

Canada. Ritchie Hawtin. Fred Everything. Tiga. Christian Pronovost. A-Track. Me!

I'm having a bit of a brain fart right (hours of MTTing = brain dead atm) now but Canada has toooooooooooones of dope DJ's both known and not known.

How do you mostly find new tracks? I assume you do not just download the weeks top10 from beatport? Promo pools?

How did you get started/first gig(s)?

I'll probably have more questions after this when I think of more.
1. It depends on what you view a DJ as. If you view the dj as solely "the person playing the music" then I suppose mixing does not matter much. If you view it as an artform where mixing / layering / being creative in the mix is an integral part then it becomes a whole different thing.

If you are a top 40 type DJ the auto sync thing is 100% fine imo because there is not often much "art" to that. Once u get into house / techno etc I personally believe and feel that mixing and what u do with the way u mix is a HUGE part of being a DJ. I could be all elitist and say "If you can't mix yourself then you are not a DJ" and a part of me does feel this way but another part of me see's some +'s / merit to the auto sync thing. + Those who do it (sync) because they are doing all kinds of creative midi / studio stuff while playing live...That makes more sense.

At the end of the say though...To me a a true DJ has to do his / her thing on there own with there ears, heart, "skill" and soul. It's more "real" that way IMO but this is just my opinion. I will never ever auto sync when doing my thang. It would be Fing boring. I view myself as a one man band playing tracks which become the instruments playing together in "harmony"...Kinda like a jam. Might sound conceited or elitist but this is how I feel. Exception are guys like DJ Harvey or David Mancuso who "select" much more than mix but the way they program music is phenomenal.

2. Yes. So much at times (miss it). Going to the record store and interacting with other DJ's was a HUGE part of DJing till vinyl...Well...Basically died. It comes back to relationships and how you can have a relationship with your records but It's hard to have a relationship with your mp3s. U slowly or sometimes quickly developed relationships with people @ the record store. It was just part of the vibe and it's gone now. I do not miss some of the snobism that went down though. Some shops were rufffff to break into haha. You had to be "accepted" to get the good **** under the counter. The digital age has changed so much and obv far beyond the realm of DJing. Some of it good but overall in terms of a "society / social" type thing prob for the worse imo.

3. Yes and no. Lady gaga is not at all house tho? But "she" has some elements tht go tht way. I mean...I'm so much of an underground guy that it's hard for me to not say "**** no they ruin it" but tht would be the snob in me and also would just not be true. I'm sure it has it's + and -s. Overall...People are entirely too easily satisfied today and just auto accept and only like what is popular and don't bother looking deeper into things. Digging etc etc. I just come from a time where U had to dig to be unique. Being different / having different music than others and playing it differently is what made you stand out. Now, it seems most want to be somewhat the same as everyone else which makes no sense to me. Not everyone though.

Guys like David Guetta make me lol though because allot of guys like that do not even produce there own music. Not saying him specifcally tho. Someone else is and there name gets put on it. Some djs/artists are actually really just "products" that are marketed and sold. Some of the guys who do the commercial stuff do it well tho and there stuff is catchy. Again, my mentality leans more towards the underground so I'm prob not the best guy to ask haha.

4. I used to just straight up dig for stuff for hours and hours. Then mostly just the record shop and promos sent by mail but mostly the record shop. When online began I dug for new stuff via the web and ordered it for / @ the shop (i worked there). I was just always on the hunt for new tracks. Also listening to other DJ's whom were trendsetters and hearing what they are playing and trying to find those tracks and ones that sound like them. Now and for the last 4 years or so...It all goes down via the net from digi download sites and allllllllllllot of promo stuff done over the web and then other artists sending you there stuff and you sending yours if you produce. I produce but am def a DJ first and allot of producers in my genre are kind enuff to send me stuff all the time. It's basically all via the net now but it;s cool when someone hands me an actual CD 2 . I def don't dl the beatport top 10 cuz most of it sucks . There are a few digi pools...I was on one but got lazy with feedback and got kicked off haha. I'm trying to just play what I really really like now. There is so much quantity over quality now tht u can end up playing stuff u don't love. U just "have it". I make an active effort to only play tracks I would pay for and only pay for what I really really like...Not just cuz it's 1.99 to buy instead of 10-18$ like it was in the vinyl days.

5. I kinda touched on this in the OP but...Saw JUICE...Found it cool...Wanted to try...Rented a setup...Then got one....Played hip hop....Went to a rave. It changed my life (sappy right)...Began to get really into the music...Sought out "that music"...Honed my skillz with lots of weed and lots of basement sessions....got a gig...They offered to pay me...I was like wow! $$$? lol...Did the gig...Which led to another...Which led to another....And on and on...And thas the short version but basically how it went down. Obv I changed styles over the years and learned and progressed and regressed and progressed haha...But tht is the jist of it. I also...If there was one focal thing...Always stayed on top of things music wise and "skill wise"....But I did it all naturally because its what I love.

Here is the link to another mix - http://www.sendspace.com/file/p2qazo - This one is a bit harder and techier but still v house. Might appeal more than the more "straight up house" one.

Edit: woops posted this in the KO brag thread. totally forgot as I was muti tabling and uti. This is the same mix as the one with the hand posted in it so...same mix as the one in the post with the HH but not the same as the first mix.

I missed the best days of Atomic -- I moved to Ottawa just as it was closing down so I keep hearing about how great it was. Future attempts Surface, Helsinki, and Heaven have been good but apparently no Atomic. Heaven I though had a lot of potential that was never realized. The only really great events post Atomic were put on by a promotions group called 7en a few times a year.

Re: ITT Ask Me Anything About Being A Professional DJ(House music/Travelling/Clubs/Parties etc)

I'm a DJ as well although I play in a totally different genre to about 2,000 - 3,000 kids a week. Closing for Zane Lowe / Doorly / Tomb Crew in a few days before hitting the UK festival scene a fair bit this summer.

What is your opinion on those that use Ableton? That's my personal weapon of choice but then I do a lot of cross genre - mashing up (think 2manyDJs meets girl talk) and ableton + my apc40 gives me a lot of flexibility. I also add in some CDJ work / Serato work at times.

Any plans to play the UK this year?

Nicely mixed, but didn't really feel it. Btw, the only track I recognized was Style of Eye - Gioco in some remix previously unknown to me.

again, well executed, but i'm not feeling this at all. i recognized a few things (2020 soundsystem, justin martin) but i turned this off at ~29:00 due to unbearably bad vocals. don't get me wrong, this is solid big-room tech house that NJ kids that go crazy on the weekend at Pacha might enjoy. personally, i find some of the effects in those tracks too formulaic, it's too obviously designed to "work" during peak-time.
