No we won't dis on that, because a lot of those DJs play Vegas because we booked them there. The EDM DJs anyway.

Re: Las Vegas

Different ball of wax out there from what I can see. Dance music DJs get booked, yes, but it's not at the level it is here. There's some solid weeklies, thankfully, but the scene is rather dominated by the open format DJs, which most have debatable skill.

Some of those open format guys are very good at what they do. They just do a different thing.

Re: Las Vegas

It's actually harder to be a good open format DJ if you can believe it.

Some think it's easier to be good as an open format DJ because you can play "whatever you want", but not really. As an open format DJ you have much more of a selection to work with, and that much more chance of selecting a turkey of a song and losing your crowd.

Ask AM. He's regarded as a good open format DJ, but he totally lost the crowd at Cameo last year when he played 'Sweet Home Alabama', for no good reason.

Re: Las Vegas

And see I've seen that exact same Sweet Home Alabama remix light up the room at Tabu in Vegas. I mean people went NUTS. That DJ was doing little three-track blocks. A few hip hop remixes of redneck music like that, I think there was a CCC remix, etc. Then he would shift into top-40 pop-hop for a few. Then it would get a little Latin for a while. People ate it up.

A house track is really easy to mix into another house track since the beat is the same and the dominant key is probably compatible. Mixing a house track into a hip hop track is HARD. That's why I suspect that the popularity of Ableton Live will result in more open format DJs.

I'm a BIG FAN of the few places in the US where you can stumble around with an open container in public. Vegas, New Orleans, Savannah, and two places in M-states that I haven't seen yet.

A lot of us here don't think that it's necessarily a good thing when the crowd doesn't care what the DJ plays. Around here people tend to lean more toward the world-class EDM DJs like PVD, Tiesto, Deep Dish.

Re: Las Vegas

Different dynamic over there. In a lot of the venues, no one gives two shits as to who the DJ is. They're out to party and have a good time. Not to insult P-Nut, but I doubt he's a dealbreaker for your average guy-or-girl-about-the-strip out looking for a good time.

What I mean is all things being equal, an open format DJ (unless it's AM, Jazzy Jeff, or Z-Trip) is not gonna make or break a club night.

Conversely, there's a significant subset of events where they do care who the DJ is, and those events draw a more focused and less touristy crowd. You'll book Roger Sanchez poolside at Wet Republic, and there's a huge difference in your numbers and financial intake.

There's enough of a market for both out there.
