have any of your bands got DJs? If you have what is it like because our band might be getting one.
I played on bills where another band had a scratcher, if that's what you mean. The ones I've seen don't add much except to make the band look hip. Just some odd sounds and occasional pieces of classic riffs/vocal tracks.
I sure hope these guys weren't getting paid as much as the actual musicians in the bands.
Nothing can beat the combination of guitar, bass drums, but hey, you can only try it and see if you like it!
Try it-i had a practice where our lead guitarist started to scratch IHO it doesn't do much. Maybe doin sampling or something but just scratching sounds bad to me. thats all
...Ok, gonna stick my neck out on this one...
I don't like the idea as a whole, but I DO like Slipknots DJ Sid...I think that he adds a whole different element to the music. Of course, that's just me. Other than him, I really don't like any other DJs...
maybe a DJ would be cool in a band...
i mean you guys play your rock set and in the end you put a DJ to continue the party
a few years ago I sat in with a band for about 4 gigs over a 2 month period, and they had keyboard player/scratcher/DJ. At first I just rolleyed my eyes at the whole idea, not being very hip or nu-school myself.
But nothing gets an audience of snot-nosed teens going like an all-funk jam with drums, bass, and scratch. It was pretty badass. And fun, too.
I HATE DJ's. My girlfriend had a huge crush on a local DJ before we started going out. I used to have to watch them make out at the bar he worked at! So it kind of affected my view on DJ's. It's a totally lame reason for not liking them, but hey.....who cares!
DJ in my head all the time! I'm so insecure!!
A kid on my hockey team whos also a good friend of mine is a DJ. Hes pretty good for a DJ. Hes about to join his friends heavy metal band. should be interesting.
thanx for all the input guys
I saw this Boston band called Club D'Elf with DJ Logic as a guest a few months back... KILLER stuff... it wasn't just scratching: Logic would toss in some drum loops, and he and the drummer would play off of each other ... I found it much more interesting than the simple scratching that's become de rigeur in much popular music today. Btw, I highly recommend Club D'Elf for a dose of jazzy fusion craziness. www.clubdelf.com
Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I really didn't wanna make a new one. My band has an oppertunity to aquire a DJ. What could I expect from them? Should we just look for a keyboardist instead?
keys and DJs are totally different areas.
I don't mind DJs except when it's way overdone. Which most DJs do. Wickidity Wickiday wonk a skritityskritiy wonk. Etc.
When Primus played with DJ Disk on Videoplasty... easily the worst display of DJery ever. His violin bit was awful. It just sounded like someone who didn't know how to play violin playing out of time.
