M!TCH: I agree with that 100% but, we have laws here and when it gets past 11pm. Forget it. You can barely fart because some old cunt will call the police. Not only that, it's the whole mentality that Dj's have here. The majority WON'T come over for a mix. And if they do its like "Ok let me play" and you watch them for an hour, then you go for an hour while they play Xbox or what ever and it's like "FUCK I COULD HAVE STAYED HOME FOR THIS!".
The ONLY person to come over and say to me "lets go song for song and try to out do eachother" (Which is how I think it SHOULD be)... WAS AMERICAN!!! He'd moved here and now I don't see him anymore but it was only because he was from somewhere else and had been doing this for years that he had the proper mentality of challenging eachother to get better. Now I see BAD Dj's getting more gigs than me and it drives me nuts. You should hear the shit I heard earlier this week from a Dj who'se had some gigs recently.
I keep finding myself disassciating myself from these Dj's because they are bad. Because they won't put in the hard yards and do some mobile gigs and the result is they can't rock a dance floor. Because they are losing their beat matching REALLY bad. Because they don't understand levels and things like that.
But, fuck! I'm running out of Dj's to put on at GIGS! And venues and everything but, I KNOW I can deliver, I don't think I've ever NOT delivered. (Sorry to sound full of myself), and so, what the fuck! It's so, ridiculous! People playing this promotion politics. They'll pretend to help you but literally sabotage you so that your gig is shit and there's is awsome, but they end up playing at both and you end up fucked! Sometimes, infact, I know more people than myslef this has happend to who will back what I say 110%. .. We have thrown gigs, the dj's have fucked us as described, and so the bar has closed at some fuck ass early shit hour.. (like 1am) AND WE HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO PLAY AT OUR OWN GIGS!!! All the money has been outlayed by us, and we don't even get to fucking play!
