I read on the blog some time ago about DJ Etiquette and where I tend to agree with most of it. The rules of the booth are a must or the whole night could be a disaster. Help eachother to get sorted to make the change over smooth but that's where it ends for me. Being a warm up DJ and setting the vibe for the DJ to follow I ain't down with that. If you're a chart DJ may be they're the rules "Don't play all the best tunes" but to be truthful DJing can be a dog eat dog world with a lot of Prima Donnas. Any reggae DJ's will know where I'm coming from when I say it's eat or be eaten once your behind those decks, take no prisoners. You've got to have that killer one off special cut or dubplate as they used to be called; that one tune could make or break the night. Back in the day £5000 for one master track was nothing I've been to clubs where if you don't go prepared to be the best you can be you'll be eaten by the crowd. If you have that killer tune get it played as that top line DJ should be able better anything you can do or he/she needs to change places. I play house Deep, Soulful, Tech these days and it's no different step up or step away is my motto. I'm not searching for the best tunes I can find and afford to not play them in my set. It's not the money you get paid or the headline on the flyer, if you're a the top DJ it's because you're supposed to be better than the rest and if you ain't "Hasta La Viva Baby" I seen headline DJ's turn down their top slot to allow their so called "warm up" DJ to continue playing. Now that's DJ etiquette. So what's you're thoughts, would you worry about the next DJ's ability to follow you or do you go in with guns blazing? What would you do if the DJ before you was rocking so hard you knew you'd only spoil the vibe?
