Armand van Helden - "DJs don't have to think about too much"

In a new interview with inthemix, Van Helden gives his candid opinion in response to a question comparing the feel of the '90s rave scene versus now. "For most of the ‘90s, I was a travelling DJ with vinyl in heavy record cases. You didn’t move, you often didn’t look up at the crowd. You would show up to a gig and the guy before you was in full trance-out mode or playing trip-hop. In the moment you had to improvise and come up with a set," he explained. "It’s a totally different thing to the way DJs are now. It’s all a no-brainer. They don’t have to think about much up there – as long as they don’t fall and twist an ankle while they’re jumping around."

Van Helden goes on to explain that little footage of DJs in the '90s exists because most of the time was spent knee deep digging through records with little connection to the crowd at all. "When we were doing it then, it was very stressful."
