    LOL wait what? how can you not use the opportunity of playing that many gigs to become an amazing DJ? damn making a 90 minute set in ableton and doing it every night while jumping around and hitting beat masher seems really hard!! they're absolutely no excuse for someone who considers themselves a DJ to ever repeat a set, its contradictory in and of itself. and especially if youre playing that many gigs its disgusting to think that one wouldnt atleast try to become a real and decent DJ from them. your logic is pathetic, and your username is weezy f baby, you're pathetic

    what if you're repeating a set in the same area? like playing multiple times in so-cal playing the same thing with maybe one change in song?

    Nah man.... Dj is supposed to improvise and make selections based on what the crowd wants to hear. Every cross and mix should be different.

    Otherwise we will all end up at arenas to watch some dude just play a pre recorded track and press sample buttons and tweak flange between songs....


    Oh wait.

    Lazy fucking thinking like this moron wheezy up here are the reason people think its ok to sell a lazy, piece of shit, prepackaged show. The crowd is oblivious to what is going on or they just don't care. Raise your expectations and support real talent.

    What exactly do you mean by the "same" set? I've seen what I think the board would consider respected DJs, guys like Eric Prydz, Breakage, Boys Noize, etc., and while they do change up a few songs in their sets, they almost always reuse the same base set of songs. For example, I'd be willing to bet that Boys Noize dropped "Spezi," "Yeah/Swoon," and "Lotus" if you saw him any time in the past year. I also saw Eric Prydz at Creamfields and then a few days later in Ibiza, nearly an identical set. I think when you're doing that many gigs a year, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep switching up major portions of what you play, so you tend to stick to the same material.

    Annnnddddd I just realized I've been wasting my time explaining this to you, you've been an avid forum supporter of SHM, who has essentially reused the exact same set for the past 2 years.

    by same set i mean different mixes and transitions. playing the same songs in a completely different order and way is not the same set as playing them somewhere else is another completely original way. examples of people who play the same songs but different sets: laidback luke, as you said boys noize, prydz, etc, many others. unfortunately now theres starting to be a lot who play the exact same sets everywhere they go- skrillex, dirty south, etc. and for the record, swedish house mafia has never repeated a set, yea its a lot of the same songs, never the same order, always something new about it

    compare their edc 2010 tracklist: http://www.dscotech.com/2010/06/swed...-live-set.html

    to their creamfields set tracklist in 2011: http://www.beatmyday.com/2010/09/04/...fields-298-10/

    to the MSG show: http://thissongissick.com/blog/2011/...dens-live-set/

    looks like you have no idea what SHM shows are like and have been for the last 2 years, join the majority of the elitists on this board!

    I do not understand this logic. If SHM played Antidote at the beginning, middle, or end of a set, it wouldn't matter, people would be going apeshit regardless, because, well, it's SHM. Transition? Unless it's a pre-made mashup, many of the transitions that DJs do on CDJs is basic beatmatching into the next song.

    and you think thats the same as having the same transitions lined up to do each and every performance? you dont think its better to mix on the spot? if you dont understand the difference here then idk what to tell you

    Listen to Kaskade's essential mix from last year and listen to the transitions from one track to another, he basically let's the first track play out to the end, then beatmatches into the next. Hardly exciting by any stretch of the imagination, and it really doesn't matter what order the tracks are in. Are you referring to SHM when you talk about mixing on the spot? Come on, man, I know you've seen the Angello video, it's been posted 10 times on this forum alone.

    yea kaskades got pretty boring recently, all im saying is that doing things differently each time > doing things the same each time as a DJ. and i hope youve seen my posts saying angello is trash and that axwell and ingrosso carry him. i enjoy shm's live sets, the two that ive seen have been high energy and drastically different, looking at their recent setlists it seems theyre starting to get repetitive though. hoping for new stuff at coachella

    Skrillex is not a good DJ at all. He doesn't mix well, but at least he's trying to use CDJs now. His transition from that Ruffneck Reggae-ish track to Pendulum's "Tarantula" was pretty good from what I saw in that video from Ultra that's all over Facebook.

    But then he ruins it by playing his track "Kyoto" over "Tarantula" and it sounds like shit.

    The dude is a shitty DJ, but while I'm not a fan of anything from Scary Monsters I don't hate his newer stuff. I like that Reggae-ish song he played at Ultra.
