  1. I believe the lines are, and have been blurring between DJ/Musician for the past few years. My personal belief is you don’t have to crazy performance stuff (a la Deadmau5’s cube) to put on a good showing.I’m not even concerned if a DJ uses the sync button. Most people, in my humble opinion under-value the technical skill of DJing. In conclusion, just play songs and read the crowd well. If I get a performance while I’m at the club, it’s a bonus, but isn’t required.

    • well said kevin, i think there are 2 distinct groups of ‘artists’, the DJ purest and the live performer. The lines are definitely blurring though. Thanks
