Dear DJ's.. (myself included) Why don't we have one weekend per year where we don't use the filter on our mixers to drop out the bass. Not once. We just let the track play as it was made. I must admit I'm already getting nervous at the thought of it as I'm not sure what I'll do during that time. National no filtering the bass day.
Here's an idea. In the past at Burning Man almost all the DJ's playing at each party usually were a part of actually building the camp/stage and/or helping or contributing in some way other that playing music. Before BM DJ etiquette goes the way of the rest of the world perhaps the camps should tell each artist and/or their agents that they too need to contribute (after all why should anyone be above joining in and helping). Worst case scenario they could help fund the sound stages or even help build the camp. Communal effort is, after all, one of the ten guide lines of being a part of the whole shebang. Turning up and 'gifting' your DJ set (when in reality is actually more about your profile in the real world) isn't truly being a part of it. I heard certain DJ's are just coming in for the weekend to play this year. Miss the point much? Oh, and miss the fun much. Anyway, I'm in. Anyone else? P.S This isn't actually a rant. Just a thought that helping and giving more than playing music (which we all know is really just a lot of fun) is beneficial for everyone.
Be kind. Be thoughtful. Be positive. It takes so much less effort that bring negative.
