Anyone can just play music, but the music you play, when you play it and why you play it at a certain time, for me, is the real art form of the DJ.
DJ’s play other people’s music (sometimes their own) but mostly, other people’s, we all know that. But the best DJ’s, the good and the great, find the music that makes your feet move, the hair on the back of your neck stand up, raises your hands in the air, makes your heartbeat a little bit faster. Music that you’ve never heard before, music that you’re asking yourself ‘what is this??’, music that feels like an old friend, even though it’s new to you. They play it at exactly the right time, to take the dancefloor to another level. They are in total control, you are in their musical hands, and you love it. You, the crowd, the DJ, everyone, could not be in a better place.
