I don't know which thread to say this, but I was under the impression that LIVE performance sets and DJ MIX sets were worlds apart from eachother...
Playing someone elses music is an entirely different form of art than performing your own music in a live context.
Shouldn't these two be separated here? Like:
- Member's Live Sets
- Member's DJ Mixes
I was quite frankly very excited to enter a forum where people posted their live performances. DJ Mixes, meeh... I'm not in any way trying to step someone on their toes, but to me, that needs to be supported by either a real life experience or great video footage.
Just to clarify, I'm not out to rant on DJ Mixes. So please don't make this an argument about that. There are lots of amazing DJ's and taking it to a level above just pressing play requires skill.
My impression of this forum is that it's tighter than many others.
I actually took my time and read through the introductional mail and even the forum rules and guidelines.
That's how impressed I was!
So if the general population considers me to be wrong.
If playing others music is considered the same thing as spending hours (to years) producing your own music and giving it new dynamics and elements by performing it live...
With instruments, keyboards, controllers or whatever way you do it.
Well... I guess then I would stand corrected...
