Our friend @thedjgospel over on Twitter is always good for a rant or two, even if we don’t always agree with what he says – but we think he hit the nail on the head recently in a tweet about some dodgy DJing he heard at a party.
“The filter and effects buttons are not for beatmatching, that would be beatmasking and proof you can’t mix…” he tweeted. I bet that you’re either nodding your head in fervent agreement with him right now, or just maybe you’re shuffling your feet somewhat guiltily (It’s OK, we’re all friends here.. )

Sometimes, even in the coolest of venues, it can all fall apart for the DJ. As I saw happen to one DJ recently... Pic: SoBoUK
Ever felt utterly dejected with your DJing? Had a Friday 13th moment? Failed to learn an important skill despite trying and trying? Messed up in front of an audience and felt so small you wanted to give up and never try again?
The purpose of today’s post is simply to reassure you that you’re not alone. We’ve all been there, and I was reminded of the fact only recently by something I saw when I was at an industry event.

Are you DJing tonight? Feeling a bit more nervous than usual? It’s Friday 13th, and we all know that means bad luck (if you’re superstitious, anyway). Indeed, some say the Devil himself invented this day…
So for a bit of dark humour, we thought we’d compile our favourite DJ fail videos, all in one place. Some are classic, some newer, and you’ll see a similar thread (keep the music playing, fool!), but all are amusing. Enjoy them, and have a great (and lucky) night’s DJing!
