  1. Hey guys, sorry I didn’t have time to watch the whole thing, but I was definitely interested in the Dennis Ferrer topic. I did not hear the story, not really being a follower of the celeb dj world. However, I know it it upsetting to some people when their idols and favorite artists are disrespected in any way… but from a DJ’s standpoint, how can you let that happen? I know this club has a reputation for being exclusive and often has those acts, but doesn’t that fact make it more obvious that he wasn’t working out? 

    I think this goes back to a huge issue which is producers vs djs. I don’t know of too many that are great at both, and House acts almost always seem to be producers. I have never watched a video of Guetta or Avicii and said “wow that dude is killing it”. I have, however noticed the 70,000 people in the crowd going crazy because they produced the 10 hottest songs on the radio at the time (well maybe not Avicii but you get the idea). Similarly with A-Trak (my personal favorite), we have all seen him murder it when battling, and spinning with Kanye, but when you watch just A-Trak, are all those hipsters in that crowd actually fans of all of that experimental shit he is doing? I am going out on a limb and saying no…

    When you are already famous, the crowd is usually going to be on your side. The only thing that is going to bail you out if the crowd is NOT full of your fans is actually being a good entertainer. Maybe Dennis Ferrer did not spend a lot of time spinning in clubs before he blew up. I can’t say, because I don’t know the guy.

    By the way, DJ AM got famous playing Britney and all that shit, so I don’t know if I agree with having to be original to make it big. Of course, Nicole Richie had something to do with it too…

    Anyway, it will be interesting to see how Dennis Ferrer comes off of this. I was with Carl Crawford last week for my real job, and I can assure you that he was humbled by his experience last year. I think you have to be ready for anything because at the end of the day you are there to work for someone else. That’s how it works.

  2. Another awesome video. So many points… but I’m getting off this bus right now. BRB!

  3. Hello Dubtronic ! We are glad that you keep working on new remexis, you know that we love your remexis. You’re right, you can still hear too much background music of “like it or not”, although the idea seems pretty good. We’ve long been trying to get a good acapella of the track but, apparently, it’s impossible. If for some reason we found one, we send to your email. If we are dropping down to a suggestion to remix the track “Like it or not”, we have to say that the song “uprising” from the MUSE group, is an excellent combination of rhythm and tone to be remixed with Madonna’s song. Best wishes,MPAP
