More DJ Etiquette
When in a gig or event, Please do not run over time. with many DJ's spinning a small delay can escalate and cascade to DJ's who come after. A schedule for time slots MUST be followed above all else. a few minutes agreed to i not so troublesome as long as the following DJ agrees to cut theirs short in order to accomodate the greater good.. To run over is disrespectful and arrogant and must not be tolerated.
I have cut my sets short many times just to keep this sacred timing. I am not your typical arrogant DJ who thinks their shit does NOT stink because we all have stinky poo's
I know it can be hard to develop a good 1 Hour set. and it is sometimes disconcerting to have to cut short an impressive setlist but get over it for the greater good of the party and following DJ's.
i was at a recent event that had like 170 peple at one time. a DJ started a request at the hour when her set was OVER. I went postal. and she has been reprimanded and dinged in the DJ group
.I can not stress how bad that was because it ripples downstream and affects following DJ's. BAD BAD Form. Perhaps the blathering and drivel on mic can be eliminated to keep the party about the Music and NOT ego. She would have had more time for tunes if she would shut her piehole a bit LOL The room host needs to be a nazi about time schedule and if a DJ ignores this should simply be cut off at the scheduled time.
