If You Only DJ Off Your Laptop, This Video Shows How You Look... Just Sayin' - EDM Culture

Back when I was working at DJ equipment store, I was helping a customer who was looking for a pro level DJ mixer. This was around 2008, when the mixer du jour was the Rane TTM-57, which I directed him to. The customer looked it over, a politely objected, saying that he needed some thing "more sexy".

I was confused to say the least, as the Rane was perfect for his needs. When I asked him what he meant by it, another employee came over and said, "Nah I get it, mixers get you p#%&y..." and proceed to sell him into the DJM-800.

The point of this story is, aside from being offensive, is that DJing (one part of it at least) is supposed to be sexy. Technics 1200s, CDJ-2000s, the DJM-900- they all have smooth lines and design that says "sex". And while Apple may have designed a great personal laptop, it is to DJing what masturbation is to sex- it may get the job done, but it's just not the same.

Here's proof- Look at this "DJ" at some European talent show. Ladies- wanna hit that? Exactly . . .
