A few months ago I did a post about my experience with pay to play DJ sets – http://www.cognitivespace.co.uk/2014/03/26/pay-to-play-dj-sets-a-curse-on-club-land/ – please check the link for the full post. I wasn’t expecting it to be so popular as for the most part I was ranting as I was angry from the experience and I also wanted to open DJs eyes to the potential dangers of getting involved with promoters that work like this – it ended up being my most viewed and liked article to date.
Electronic music magazine – Do Androids Dance wrote about the article and went into further depth about how many promoters aren’t looking for straight up DJs anymore and how the art is being devalued. You can check it in its full glory here – http://doandroidsdance.com/news/promoters-djs-pay-for-play/
Big shouts to D.A.D
