That guy who plugs his laptop into the sound system at your local piece of crap nightclub and plays Top 40 tunes all night is not a DJ. Sure, you’re on your seventh pint of Pasbt Blue Ribbon and don’t care, but being an actual DJ requires a lot more skill than just cross-fading the songs on your “Get Crunked” playlist.
Check out this performance from DJ Vekked, a three-time World DJ Champion. Just watch his hands! It’s crazy that he can create those beats out of almost nothing.
