That is treating DJing like a job - instead of a passion...but good luck with that, it seems to be working well for you.
It is, so thank you!it seems to be working well for you.
If you said from the beginning, I do lots to support the local scene - and unless I have to work in the AM or have another commitment - I show up early and hang out to hear others....I wouldnt have even commented.
But instead people were telling a new DJ that it is cool to show up a few minutes before his set...and who cares if you play songs that the guy before you played. That right there is bad advice and I felt the need to set the record straight.
Unless you have another gig or work then you should turn up with ample time. You don't have to be there when the doors open (unless you have a controller/traktor etc to soundcheck), but you should give a decent amount of time, you should actually want to be there.
I agree with Kleen on this (and clearly we do not always agree on everything).

For the love of god, if you have a DVS and you know that there is not going to be a scratch amp hooked up for you, please show up early enough to have your stuff set up.
I throw parties and we allow DVS at our parties but we are a strict "no controller" group. Causes too many headaches, and we prefer people with talent.
