The irony with DJs is the bigger you get the less you can improvise live because the music is so heavily tied to a preprogrammed light and video show.

^ Definitely true! I'm sure everyone here saw this.

And thats part of the problem w/ the whole DJ as Rock-Star thing. You pay to go see someone play the same exact shit they produced in a studio. They stand on stage and literally push play, smoke cigarettes and fist pump. They need the light-show because w/o it there would be nothing to see and the programming of the lights is tied to same system thats triggers the music so they can't exactly alter it. So really it's no different than paying to go watch an iPod on a stage. Only difference is you get to see your favorite "celebrity DJ" push buttons.




I saw a Madeon live show video where you couldn’t even tell if somebody was on stage because the light show was so overpowering. It was hilarious, if not sad.

I’ve said this before. Light and video production companies should just do their own events because who or what the music is coming from has become inconsequential. Let the show production companies battle it out for epic and ground breaking visual shows.

Right! Thats a good idea. I'm gonna start throwing Deadmau5 shows at the venue here in Pittsburgh. I could charge $150.00 per ticket and just have a sick light show then set my iPod to crossfade and shuffle a deadmau5 playlist. Dude, I'm about to get paid!!!!

Now that’s just silly, but I approve. But seriously, imagine these rock star DJ/producers on stage without any of the lights or video.

Look up old school rap live shows with a DJ on a massive stage with a bunch of hype men pacing around with no lights or video. Makes even the top performers look like they are doing some cheap local public access show. Silly.

I know right. I'm sure something will happen soon and everyone will come back down to earth and realize watching a regular dude on stage pushing buttons isn't all that entertaining. Plus, you can't even see the guy really or what he's doing. Dance is made to be danced to. Fuck the dick-head being paid $200,000 to stand on a stage. Stop looking at him, he's not that special. DANC and have fun!!
