    He gets paid to play predominantly top 40/ open format. His sets range from part "live remix" to just turntables and a controller, it all depends on how he's booked. I've heard his "normal" sets live - it's mostly his scratching / personal edits that make his sets. Then again, 99% of people at a venue won't notice any of it, expect for maybe some clever transitions/song selection.

    This is one of his DMC competition routines - he took second in 03. The bit around 1:44 is my favorite.

    Q Bert's a beast, but he doesn't get have the same booking value, because he's not as into production / and hasn't adapted his style to something easier to digest. Many of the big Vegas club music directors were old school DJ's, but they still have pretty safe music programming. That's why "big" acts like Dennis Ferrer can get kicked off the decks at big clubs - inability to adapt their sets to the crowd.

    That's from early last year, so some of the songs will be dated, but Scene's paid his dues and he's a Vegas resident DJ as well. Some pretty clever word play transitions / old school incorporation, but in the end, it's an open format set essentially.

    How can you be born in the 80's and not like freestyle even a little? A lot of music from today comes from freestyle roots.

    Also Breezy, wtf :foo:

    i dont really listen to much gangsta rap or hip hop nowadays its kinda done and dusted, now is just about making the next club hit beat with idiot lyrics (versus lyrics that just glorify ghetto life :sarcasm:)
    but some random stuff that came to mind when you wrote that -- altho i'm 64 like sipang, not born in 80s.

    Yeah but a lot of current electronic/reggaeton/etc took cues from disco/freestyle. Oddly enough, Filipinos seem to love freestyle, even though Latinos blew it up.

    I'm probably a rap fan first, but I can get into most types of music. Mos Def is great (and by extension Black Star), or should I say Yasin Bey these days. Rahzel and Biz Markie still doing it.

    Finnish trio, that lasted for a short while. Started by Finland's most famous jazz pianist, Iiro Rantala, a beatboxer called Felix Zenger and a wonderful guitarist called Marzi Nyman. Cool stuff.
