I want to tell you something about Relativity Theory. It isn't about Physics, but of course... Music!. Cause Music Is The Answer ;-)
Music is relative!! More general, everything is relative. I mean you could see/hear things relative to other things. Nothing is good/bad or beautiful/ugly. Some ugly things could be beautiful as well, relative to other things.
A good example are two songs. If u play them in the right order, then both tunes are good. If it's not the right order, you could experience that the second track isn't good.
Djing is an underrated form of Art. A good DJ mixes well, plays the right tracks and last but not least in the right order.
Basically, if a DJ set equals the melody then the record equals the notes. U understand?
I'll give you an overview:
A Melody consists of notes.
A sample consists of melodies (Or a sample is one melody:-).
A Tune consists of samples.
A DJ set consists of tunes.
People will appreciate a good melody.
Same thing for a sample (Actually, melody and sample could be equal:-).
A good track with a stolen sample won't be appreciated. Why not?
A DJ is nothing more than some Disc Jockey who plays tracks from other people...
In my opinion DJing is Art!!
I guess that after reading this story, you will appreciate a DJ more than without this knowledge.
So your knowledge is relative, too. Your respect to people, depends of knowing them. Never judge someone if you don't know him/her. Have a conversation, you could find gold :-)
I'm out and do respect you for knowing me a lil bit better,
P.S Here an example of two 'great' songs in the wrong order... :-)
