The only ones that will take offense to this are the people who don't mix live. Like Steve Aoki:

Less "takes aim" more "makes funny joke".

Felt like a Sara Schneider sketch and probably was, but for real that song has to be downloadable soon right?

So I've been touring for about 8 years now... First with my bands, then a label band, then warped tour, etc... Anyway, now I'm Steve's tour manager and I can assure you he's never played a pre-mixed or pre-recorded set in his life. That video is a "back-to-back" set featuring 3 DJ's and of course they carefully edit the video to start and stop after the song has already been mixed in and before they mix out... Not trying to start drama or anything cause I know people have their opinions but just throwing it out there.


Anyway, this SNL skit is pretty damn funny. Lost it at the Jenga block

Not starting anything either and Steve is one fuck of a businessman, but you're telling me that at every show of his, Steve has no songs pre recorded and he makes everything up on the fly? It is possible to memorize exactly what buttons to press and knobs to turn at a certain time but he can do all of that without a guideline more or less? Maybe I'm just a little confused on exactly what he does. I've seen a bunch of DJs playing a pre-recorded track and just work on effects and fading the entire time. That to me, almost anyone can do.
