DJ premier appears with DJ P to talk about real DJ’s, Serato, and more. Primo offers honest opinion about what constitutes a proper set and even a minimum record limit for “real” DJ’s.
“If you don’t own at least a thousand records, you’re not a DJ for real.”
“The more we get nice on Serato, the less they’re gonna be wanted because they’re not doing anything, but putting the record on.”
As a person still owns thousands of records, I can’t say that I agree with Primo on a lot of points. This is especially true with requiring new DJ’s to lay down serious cash on 1000 records just to be considered authentic.
Also, we can’t forget that button pusher DJ’s have been around long before Serato. In fact, they’ve always been around and many times have managed to continuously earn a significant living.
