De Cosas que nunca le debes decir a un dj...

Before requesting songs, making comments, or asking questions to the DJ please…CHECK BELOW FOR YOUR REQUEST:
1. PLAY SOMETHING GOOD…SOMETHING WE CAN DANCE TO!The D.J. has to play for more than one person…so, what you may hate may be another's favorite song and EVERYTHING played here can be danced to one way or another.
2. WOULD YOU PLAY SOMETHING WITH A BEAT?BE SERIOUS! We know of NO songs played in a club that don't have some sort of a beat!
3. I DON'T KNOW WHO SINGS IT AND I DON'T KNOW THE NAME OF THE SONG, BUT IT GOES LIKE THIS…Please don't sing for the D.J.! They have to put up with smoke-filled rooms and dangerous decibel levels all night. Do them a favor and DON'T give them a rendition of your favorite song!
4. EVERYBODY WANTS TO HEAR IT!Oh sure, you polled EVERYONE in the club and, as their spokesperson, you are requesting the song.
5. I CAN GET LAID IF YOU PLAY IT!If you are GOOD ENOUGH, you can get laid to anything!! (also been known as "buy the album and get laid for a month!"). If you need ME to play you a song so that YOU can get laid, you've got problems.
6. I WANT TO HEAR IT NEXT!The only people who can get away with that statement write the DJ's paycheck! Plus more often than not, the DJ has the next song already cued up and ready to go, and does not have time to find your song, get it on the decks, and get it cued up in time to be next.
7. I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WANNA HEAR…WHAT DO YOU HAVE?It's a lot easier for you to go have another beer and figure out what you want to hear than it is for the D.J. to recite the name of EVERY record in the booth! Also don't ask for a songlist! I don't know of any club DJ's that actually keep a printed list with them! We keep it in our heads or sometimes in a database!
8. HEY YO, NOBODY CAN DANCE TO THIS!It is not advisable to say this when the dance floor is packed (but, some people do anyway)! However, even if there is only ONE person on the floor, it STILL contradicts the statement. You're just being rude. Have an open mind about music
9. EVERYBODY WILL DANCE TO IT IF YOU PLAY IT!Half the time I hear this, no-one goes to the dancefloor except for the person that asked for it, and when they realize they're the only one that wanted to dance to it, they bail. If you ask the DJ for a dance song and don't dance to it, expect the DJ to ignore your requests the rest of the night. However, if we play your song and you dance and have a good time, even if no-one else does, we'll still take your next request seriously. We like to please, even if it's one person at a time.
10. MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!! If you're at a club or event that doesn't play any Hiphop, don't ask if "you got any hiphop"? Just go outside to your car and turn on the radio or go home and watch MTV!!
If you ask for a song and the D.J. says "I just played it", DON'T SAY, "Well, I just got here." It makes absolutely no difference. None at all. If you want to be sure you hear your favorite song at the club, you better be there when the DJ starts his/her set. We don't have a flashing red light in the booth that tells us that you're there and we can play your song now.
DON'T SAY, "Is this the only kind of music you play?" If you go to a Chinese restaurant, you wouldn't ask for Italian food. Rock clubs play rock, alternative clubs play alternative, discos play disco, etc., etc., etc…
If you ask for a song, BE SPECIFIC. DON'T SAY, "I wanna hear something, anything but this!" Try going to the bar and saying, "I wanna drink something, anything but this…" You can't complain if you're not SPECIFIC. HOWEVER, if you ARE specific and the D.J. says they don't have the song, DON'T SAY, "What?!! What do you mean you don't have it? What kind of DJ are you? Why don't you get into the wonderful world of fast food! You obviously don't know what you're doing as a D.J.!"…We may reply with "I don't come to your job and SMACK the DICK out of your mouth when your working." THE DJ MAY SHOOT YOU!!! OR DROP KICK YOUR ASS MATRIX STYLE! Or just have you escorted out of the club. We can do that. Trust me. DO NOT BE AN ASS.
Special Note
A nightclub D.J. gets very little respect. They are expected to play everything for everybody. It is impossible to satisfy all to the people all of the time, yet club jocks are expected to do just that. If a radio jock tells his listeners a song is a hit, the majority of the people think it must be "because they said so on the radio." However, 80% of the time that same song was being played in a club long before the radio "DISCOVERED" the "NEW" song. So give the D.J. a break! The next time you request a song, stop and think before you speak. Remember a request is just that… a request!! It's not a guarantee your song will get played!! Ask once for your song and the DJ will try and play it. Keep asking and you're being a pain in the ass! Don't send all your friends to request the same song hoping to get it played. DJ's aren't that stupid!! They get dozens of requests in a night and there isn't enough time to play them all.
If you have a CD that you want the DJ to play, and the DJ agrees to listen to it, they're ALREADY DOING YOU A FAVOR BY TAKING THE TIME TO DO SO. If they don't play it don't be pissed, they made a judgment call that the music wasn't the right type to be played. If you wanna hear only songs that you wanna hear, STAY AT HOME AND LISTEN TO YOUR CD'S.
If you DJ or MC (or just say that you do) DONT ask me if you can "DJ/mc for a little bit" AT MY GIG especially if I don't know you! If you wanna spin/mc at a club, talk to the owners and give them a mix tape! No one will take you serious without one. Of course unless you already have paying gigs (in which case you wouldn't be tryin to do it at my gig). They're paying us to play music and make announcements, not to host open mic night.
My booth is not a "Coat Check!" So don't come up in it asking me if I could watch your coat/purse. If that shit is to much for you to handle you should have left it in your Damn car!!!
Also don't come up in the DJ booth and just hover around!!!! A DJ needs space to work. You don't see me coming into your work and standing over your computer, or looking over your shoulder while your trying to work. That would just be plain Fucking rude!!
And if I do decide to let you hang around in the both, NEVER EVER set your BEER/Drink down around my VERY EXPENSIVE equipment!!!!! If that spills I'm out Thousands of Dollars!!!!! You don't see me and my folks hanging out on the hood of your car. So PLEASE show me the same respect for something important to me.
And above all and most Importantly, if the DJ has one hand on the mixer, one hand on a turntable and is wearing headphones, DON'T BUG US unless you know us!!!!!!!
Oh, I almost forgot one more thing. Don't flash us any money for your request unless your "DONALD TRUMP"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's a hard job being a DJ. Our work most of the time goes very much unappreciated. Think about it, we are the only people in the club who don't get a chance to actually just sit and hang out with our buddies. If we stop to take a break, the whole club and the music stops with us. We spend sometimes 6 to 8 hours in a booth, STANDING the whole time. We are lucky if we get a chance to find a second to take a bathroom break. Cause when we screw up and the music stops everyone starts yelling and complaining. "No one ever remembers when we are doing a good job, but screw up even once, and everyone notices"
If you read this and appreciate it… Show your DJ some love. Post a comment. Buy their mixtapes. Go see them perform. Tell a friend about them. Buy them a drink. Tip them. Treat them well.

Una cita de Carta a Kurt Cobain por Douglas Coupland...

"Unos minutos más tarde estaba en la ciudad, parqueé el carro y traté de averiguar lo que sentía.Y esto es lo que sentí: Sentí que nunca te pedí que me hicieras preocupar por ti, pero pasó –contra la adulación, contra la desigualdad– y ahora estás en mi imaginación para siempre.

Y supongo que tú también estás en el cielo. ¿Pero cómo, exactamente, te ayuda el saber que tú, también, como se dice, fuiste adorado?"

Una cita de Siddharta de Hermann Hesse...

"-¿Perdiste tus riquezas?
-Sí, las perdí, o tal vez ellas me perdieron.
Digamos que se me extraviaron. La rueda de
las apariencias gira velozmente, Govinda.
¿Dónde está el brahmán Siddharta? ¿Dónde
el rico Siddharta? Aprisa cambia lo transitorio,
Govinda: Tú lo sabes."

Una cita de Acústica en arquitectura de Fabio Alvarado...

"El ruido es un sonido no deseado producido por una fuente. En esencia el ruido es una condición subjetiva. Lo que es permitido para un individuo puede ser un ruido perturbador para otro."

Una cita de La sonrisa del jaguar de Salman Rushdie...

Había una chica nicaragüense
Que cabalgaba sonriendo sobre un jaguar.
Volvieron del paseo
La chica dentro
Y la sonrisa en el rostro del jaguar.

Una cita de DJ Spooky Interview with Carlo Simula for his book MILLESUONI. OMAGGIO A DELEUZE E GUATTARI (Cronopio Edizioni)

"Essentially, for me, music is a metaphor, a tool for reflection. We need to think of music as information, not simply as rhythms, but as codes for aesthetic translation between blurred categories that have slowly become more and more obsolete. For me, the Dj metaphor is about thinking around the concept of collage and its place in the everyday world of information, computational modelling, and conceptual art...but the basic sense of "rhizomatic" thought - thinking in meshworks, in nets that extend to other nets - it's the driving force of my music and art. I think it's a great place to start thinking about a philosophy of "the remix." The "remix" is about certain kinds of polyphony - it's about making multiple rhythms work together, synchronized, cut, pasted, and collaged. That's the real "abstract machine"..."

Una cita de A vuelo de murciélago el sonido, nueva materialidad de Carlos Mauricio Bejarano Calvo...

"La música electroacústica extendió las posibilidades sonoras propuestas por la música instrumental, diversificando sus lenguajes y sus potenciales estéticos de manera dramática; es una música del sonido y se interesa esencialmente por "reinventarlo" permanentemente. Al asumir la totalidad sonora como posible musical, la música electroacústica desbordó ampliamente a la escritura tradicional de la música gramatical pasando a ser una música morfológica. Ha desbordado también al instrumento musical ya que, aunque lo contiene como materia sonora, se ha interesado fundamentalmente por el sonido en sí mismo. Estas condiciones además han replanteado el tradicional circuito con el intérprete, en la mayoría de los casos aboliéndolo, pues el compositor asume la total responsabilidad del material sonoro, de su organización y difusión. También ha generado rupturas respecto a las formas del concierto, pues en algunas ocasiones recurre a orquestas de parlantes y en otras un instrumental de máquinas electrónicas en escena."
