2. Thoughts & prayers for DJs
The real-life of a DJ.
It looks glamorous, but there's a hidden, darker side.
Let me tell you what no one else knows about the DJ lifestyle:

Some people are so desperate to be famous they will film themselves djing in a bathroom

4. Every dance music media outlets are closing their eyes so why shouldn’t you?
You have to get comfortable w/the fact that nothing makes sense. You will have rapists on center stage, ppl who haven’t worked a fraction as hard w/barely passable DJ skills headlining or touring. It’s never going to make sense or change. Just keep your eyes on your own paper. 🏽

5. The murphy law, DJ edition
I thought djing was easy until you mix in a track with hoes jumping on the table over the gear, knocking drinks over then my phone into said drinks, having my feet grabbed under the table, then the cdjs deciding to clock out their shift

7. Same with medias though…
Every single DJ who supports you is important no matter how big or small the artist. Every show play, radio spin or playlist helps share your music with new people so you should always be grateful. If you want ongoing support be respectful & show your appreciation to everyone 🙏🏻

8. *Cough* name of a UK DJ *Cough*
Serious question: Why do we, as a scene continue to hype up artists and branding around heavy substance use even though we are losing our friends every other week to addiction and OD?

9. Where do you stand today?
Topics that cycle year after year:
– DJs who don’t produce should/shouldn’t be booked
– 360 stages are awesome/lame
– Artists who don’t make their own music should/shouldn’t be forgiven
– Beat sync is/isn’t ok
– Large agencies are/aren’t ruining the scene

10. Promoters still pay though…
i wish booking agents would come correct and not naively believe DIY parties have the same fee structures as clubs

11. Your chance to network?
If you do the walk from Kings Cross Station to Tileyard at 1PM on a weekday you will run into the entirety of the UK music industry.
