Amazing rant by DJ Major Taylor.
“When i dj, I don’t take requests. Primarily because request actually have nothing to do with music and much more to do with some preconceived sense of entitlement. An individuals desire to have agency over the vibe of the room for a few minutes.But there really is no need for that. I swear im pretty good at this. When it comes to the music, If you just let me handle the driving, im pretty certain you will enjoy the ride. You wouldn’t go to a restaurant the features a good chef and insist that you have better ideas for the ingredients used in EVERYONES meal would you? No,because that would be obnoxious. Were i a less socially tactful person, i would most likely find myself, on a weekly basis, saying terrible things like ‘The world does not belong to you so, shut the fuck up you giant drunk baby. Can’t you see im working? This is not up for discussion, so go back to your awful herd,continue the rhythm-less, second hand embarrassment you call dancing, while i try to figure out how to spoon feed you good songs spliced with some shitty shit, that the internet & your car stereo have repetitiously jedi-mind tricked you into consuming.’ Don’t get it twisted,i love you all and i love spinning the jams but there are so many times id like to just do this…….”
