Re: “DJ Spaed

Props to the CP for highlighting a DJ who plays music for the sake of the music. Underground or not, a DJ who loves what he does and strives for progression will always shine. When you hear a DJ who plays onyl underground music you don't have to ask yourself anything, you just take the music at face value and you like it or you don't. Mainstream DJs play what they are told, how they are told, and 9 times out of 10 don't even own their own music. Mainstream Djs do not compare to underground Djs, they are two different animals with vastly different motives. Highlighting a mainstream DJ and writing an article about their work is like highlighting the promotion of a CEO to a corporation. There's no original style, no dedication to progressing a sound, no daily struggles to survive in a world where their music is disrespected, and above all that, they are disposable. Anyone can play the top 10 songs on the radio when they don't have to beat match, mix, buy records, or program a set. Djing in the mainstream does not require nearly as much talent as Djing for the underground, and since mainstream djs are picked not because of their originality but because of their uniformity, when one falls off another faceless DJ will pop up to take that place, just like Kleenex. Besides all this, mainstream music is garbage. peace
