Has technology killed the Art of DJing?
Let the debate begin!
I personally use a little bit of everything when I spin (Records, CDs, Serato) it really just depends on my gig. I honestly feel like I can be even more creative on the fly with computer programs that offer options like: Instant doubles, Cue Points, Loop, samplers & the ability to mix videos. Why would you limit yourself?
If you were not that creative playing records you will probably be the same way using the new technology. You will have far less back problems from not having to lug the wax.. but still be lacking when it come to creative ways of putting music together. (That's just my opinion)
I am excited about spinning even more.. ever since I got Serato in Jan 2006. JDLP
