“Don’t bump the tables” & other rules to live by: A Primer for Party Goers
How not to piss off your favorite DJ ~~~> *leans in and whispers* The good ones really don’t like it when you request songs. O_O oops I didn’t know either, yall. Much to our surprise fellow music lovers a real DJ pretty much HATES it when you come up to their tables and give them suggestions of what to play. An experienced DJ knows how to read a crowd for what to play and when to play it; they’ve also created a flexible set list in their mind of what they wanna rock that night. So basically LET THEM LIVE. Trust them enough to play music that’s going to make you move and nod. I’ve never personally tried to request a song but I have seen it go terribly wrong when pushy party goers try to tell a DJ how to do their job lol it’s not pretty.
J Live posted a shirt on Instagram about the “no request rule” and I was really curious about why it mattered so much to turntablists. I decided to go to one of the best DJs I know ? so I spoke with Fresh Radio’s creator Philly’s own DJ Bee about the subject.
