How To Piss Off a DJ
These days, it’s pretty glorified to be a DJ. Everyone thinks about the dude standing in front of a sea of drunk or rolling college kids, juggling beats and dropping bass at the next biggest festival of the season. Few people remember that that moment represents a small snapshot of a DJ’s life, which is very much not a party when not at the decks.
Few DJs get famous without being epic producers, which in turn takes a seemingly endless amount of hours parked on a laptop both mastering the skills of mastering and actually developing the tracks that will help them make their name. A lot of work goes into becoming festival-worthy, so when the dues are paid and titles earned, while many DJs manage to keep their egos in check, others can get a bit entitled.
