No, you don't. You have evidence of EDM producers posing as DJ's doing it though.

Indeed. And he does it well. Got the chance to see his live show and interview him at SXSW a few months back. Twas awesome.

But see how I said that Hawtin fans crack the shits if you don't like his music? .... Was I wrong? WAS I? Here I've said that I don't like it, and WHY I don't like it and the Hawtin militia has come out to be like "LEAVE HIM A LONE" Remember, I said I KNOW his acheivments. I'm not bagging what he's done. I'm not saying he hasn't been beneficial, all I'm saying is I think he could be better. I never said he was fake, I just said HE COULD BE BETTER.
If EDM Djs were worth shit I'd pay attention to them but I have my own agenda to work for and sucking up their scrotums isn't part of it so who gives a rats ass how fake they are? Let them do what they want man, they're only playing someone elses music anyway so deep down, who cares?
Done that once at a house party, they had the gear and a huge pile of rock, hard rock and metal CD heaven, and shoved me in there. It was sort of circumstantial but I definitely had a blast.

And yeah dude, Rock Gigs aren't half bad. I've noticed you get either really good ones or really shit ones. In pubs it goes off like a cock in a sock.
That will vary on the DJ and his rock culture. I mean if someone starts playing blink182 & Greenday back to back then gives a big shootout on the latest metallica, I'd walk out of the room holding my ears in my hands.
MUAHAHHA Ive done that and made it work. It's bizzare. Still, Mobile gigs have a lot of rock music. I've had to play Metallica, Sepultura, Pantera etc etc. Also tho Blink 182 etc.
All time best... Phil Collins and Van Halen! "TELLLL ME WHYYYY CAN'T THIS BEEEE LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE"
Oh and I like to finish with "GODDDDD GAVE ROCK n ROLLL TOOOOO YOU, GAVE ROCK N ROLLL TO YOU PUT IT IN THE SOULLLLLLL OF EVERYYYYYYYYONEEEEEEEEE'
