The most common conversation within the DJ community (and outside) is that anyone can DJ. Technology has changed the spectrum and capabilities within the culture, and more people are calling themselves DJs. But what does it really entail? Obviously, one must know how to read a crowd and have a grip on new music, know how to blend and transition your music correctly and a few other things.
Though this video was shot a little while ago and the technology may have evolved even more since then, the conversation remains the same. CAN ANYONE BE A DJ?
It’s really not as easy as people make it to be. Just because you own a pair of headphones and turntables doesn’t make you a DJ. Truthfully in my opinion, it’s easier to DJ within the EDM world (this video proves it). When it comes to scratching and doing the things some of the founding fathers like Grand Wizard Theodore and Grandmaster Flash do within the culture, these EDM DJs don’t stand a chance. But we must say, the following video gives a good perspective of what it’s like to be an EDM DJ and if anyone can be put up to the challenge.
