It's not just what you say, it's also HOW you say it.
Criticism = Honey, you are beautiful to me and I will always love you. If you want to wear that dress, I'm still proud to be with you, but I don't think that dress really accentuates your sexy figure as well as this other dress.
Hating = Nah girl... that dress don't make you look fat... your enormous fat rolls do. Don't try to blame that on the dress. Your lard-butt ain't the dress's fault.
One is motivated by caring concern, one is motivated by vitriol and nastiness. We each choose which kind of person we are going to be.
That said, if you ask for criticism, expect the haters to show up, because most of them don't know the difference between the two. So, the person asking for criticism also needs to grow a thick skin. If you ask for criticism, strap on your boots, because the haters are gonna show up and crap on your boots, just because that's who haters are.

When the world has forgotten about the MADE Djs, the born Djs, even if they never had a gig in their life, their music will find a way to live on. Be it, in someones car, on someones Ipod, on someones computer etc, it will leak through somewhere because people, generally, understand GOOD music. They want to LISTEN to it and be MOVED by it. They don't want to analyse it. They don't want to think about it. That's a MADE Dj scene. Thats why they all hate eachother but act like bum chums. They're fucking fake.
I'd like to hope one day someone will see me as a Born Dj. But for the momment I'm happy with my accomplishments and when I ask for critique, it's not to know if I have fucked up, because I KNOW I have, but any real situation calls for inperfection. I ask for criticism because I need to know my music still makes peoples underpants tingle a bit. So long as 1 person likes what I play and make, I'll keep playing. And even if they don't, then I'll do it for my personal pleasure to play what I like, how I like.
There's no need for older generations to be such haters. They're just jealous that they're out of the loop.
Born dj? What you were born to be a glorified jukebox? Help me understand this.
The club / rave scene in the 80s and 90s was miles better than what is going on now. WMC was still about the music. Ibiza was still a great place to hear quality sets for short money. NYC had clubs like Limelight, Twilo, ARC, Sound Factory, Paladium. And every major city in the world was experiencing the peak of rave culture.
But yeah, guys who got to spin during that time are clearly jealous of the sad sack state of affairs you get to work in every weekend now.
You know I'm still trippin on the Born DJs bit.
Easy on the apple drink fella.
It's all about the shit sandwich
There were some good bits in that mix
The EQ and levels were off though, definitely something to work on
But keep it up and you'll nail it in no time!
I find it annoying when "Big" Artist form a sentence or post some "Wise Quote" on twitter/facebook that basically means "Stop Hating"
People have different taste, they have the right to hate if they think your music is garbage .
Just because they're feelings are getting hurt doesn't give them the right to tell people what they should/shouldn't like .
People who say "Stop Being a Hater" are generally morons .
These people can't get it through their head that some people don't agree with them .
Ain't nothing wrong with being a hater .
