other DJs

DJs won’t admit this, but I’ll let everyone in on the secret.
DJs hate other DJs.
We’ll be friends with other DJs, hang out with them, talk shop and stuff.
But in the back of our minds, we really can’t stand those fucking fuckers.
Every gig that another DJ is working is a gig that I’m not working.
Whether it’s headlining a stadium show or doing the Baumgartner Bar Mitzvah.
Doesn’t even matter what the gig is. It’s irrational, but true.
And in our minds there’s always a ridiculous reason why the other DJ got the gig.
Either it’s because he’s friends with the promoters
Or is cheaper than everyone else
Or maybe he just gives good head.
Skill has nothing to do with it. Again, irrational but true.
Do you ever see DJs in the club when they aren’t working?
They are the guys standing next to the booth with a pissy look on their faces.
Just standing around, watching the other DJ and thinking
“Fuck this guy.  Can’t believe he made that mix. That song is soooo played out.”
“Oh, and those headphones fucking suck.”

  1. 1 DJ That Asshole

    My all-time favorite is when I’m working four hours in a bar punctuated by dudes who either want to work there or used to work there trying to stand around hyping themselves and watching whatever it is they think I’m doing that’s so important. But it’s not important enough to keep you from trying to start weird conversations while I’m trying to work. No, I don’t know why that girl told you she’s Selena Gomez. I’m going to come to your show and start asking you a lot of stupid questions, maybe you’ll enjoy it when I’m cockblocking *and* messing up your mix.

    Lol!! This also sucks when you try to talk to your DJ after his set and all the douche-y wannabes are cock-blocking as they stand and “guard” the booth! Lol! Get over ur-selves and get a job! ;p

    Love it.

    Works both ways though – DJs (not me, of course) will happily be playing to the crowd until another DJ walks in, then it’s all obscure mash-ups and “ha ha be you haven’t got this one” one-up-man-ship….

    Most those reasons mentioned are more than true. i know a lot of female dj’s who seriously have only been playing less than a year getting more gigs than myself. I know dj’s who run in “Crews” so they suck up all the gigs and i know others who in my opinion are just great at being ass kissers and under cutting so they are working all the spots 9-4am for $150 bucks!

    So yup…Once again.
    Your Dead On!

    I can honestly say I’m guilty of being the “guys standing next to the booth with a pissy look on their faces.
    Just standing around, watching the other DJ and thinking
    “Fuck this guy. Can’t believe he made that mix. That song is soooo played out.”’ on a couple occasions.
