Why is a DJ called a DJ these days…
I’ve used serato for many years with my 1210s, it’s great.
Although recently I’ve bought a CDJ850 to get used to using CDJs. They are actually quite fun, I certainly am not disliking using a CDJ over my 1210s (as much as I love my 1210s.).
Anyway, this topic has been done to death in the dance music community many times over. The only universal hatred is laptop DJs.Posted 3 months agodazhSubscriber
The only universal hatred is laptop DJs.
What does that mean? Someone who only uses a laptop? Someone who uses a laptop alongside a controller? Someone who uses the sync button/BPM indicator?
All a bit silly if you ask me. IANADJ, but here’s an idea. Why doesn’t the DJ world have a certified dj skills award? Much like a chartership for an engineer, any budding DJs would first have to pass an exam on the finer points of DJ-craft. Then they could present their certificate/ID badge at a club/party before being allowed access to the decks/CDJs/controllers/whatever and thereby avoid the snobbery and condescension of their peers.
And I’m amazed we got a whole 2 pages in without someone posting this…

What topic? That the name DJ doesn’t mean you play records? And “universal hatred”?? – would be difficult if all those laptop DJs in dance music are hating themselves eh?Posted 3 months agoplyphonMember
DJ’s who only use a laptop. No controller, nothing. Just a laptop on stage.
It was also a slight joke that I see has been missed. Shed played as Head High with just a laptop and, well, it’s Shed do he can do what the hell he wants 😆

David Guetta is a genius, I watched him doing Titanium at a festival and all he did was wave his arms about and then occasionally fumble the volume slider so the crowd could go “fire away, fire away”- he got the timing right about one time in three. It’s right up there with seeing Marilyn Manson getting paid to stick his fingers up his bum at Download. Genius.Posted 3 months agonickewenMember
This thread has just reminded me of this one time when me and my dad went to the local bar on a Saturday and he asked the lass if there was a “Disc Jockey” on later.. She looked at him like he was from Mars… he then exaplained “you know.. D J” at which point she said “No” 😆Posted 3 months ago
