Luckily there are still a few places where good DJ's and producers get to practice their craft and crowds that appreciate them for it.
Terrible vid of a rave I was at a couple weeks ago. DJ Producer is kind of a big deal in the Hardcore scene.
Yeah as I was reading it I kept cringing for so so so many reasons.
I'm not going to bother writing it all, but off the top of my head, the biggest thing that struck me as just... juvenile, almost, are his ideas about what "good" music is and the and music that makes you feel things. All of the "good" music he names are things he is obviously nostalgic for and evoke those same emotions from the younger days of his own personal lifespan, and with regards to the older stuff (50's, 60's, 70's) it's probably stuff he liked as he was at the point where he was really getting into music so of course it will resonate with him on a deeper level.
This ties into the bit about playing a top 40 song from 10 years ago will get people excited, while playing one from 4 years ago will get boos. A crowd will respond to something that brings back memories from a decade ago, but there hasn't been enough time passed for one from 4 years ago to really do anything of significance. It's at that point where radio/club plays have finally diminished long enough that you aren't bombarded by it so much after it reached it's saturation point, and people don't want to jump back to that so quickly.
But don't get me started on his use of the phrase "classic rock" which makes me audibly groan to the point of exhaustion every time i hear it
