    Surgeons up there with one of best gigs i’ve been to...In a wee cellar bar in Dublin, intense.
    Was watching this set last night - just exquisite. The last 20 minutes is almost perfection.

    Was at Dekmantel last summer. Amazing festival, probably the best I've attended bar Burning Man in the States.

    i don’t care whatever the music snobs say, this was decent. And this guy paved the way for techno in Scotland.

    I remember proper hardcore when joey beltram was the second hardest dj of the night. These days will never be beaten, because everything after those nights is just a recreation of events. You were either there or you weren’t.
    When I first started going to raves and clubs it was all that sort of heavy belgian style stuff like Beltram, The Hypnotist, Human Resource etc. Then i remember hearing this and being absolutely blown away.

    Back then my favourite DJs were Fabio, DJ Seduction, Top Buzz, Ellis Dee

    Was at the orbit once back in 1992, I think. Bus load of is went down from here and had a cracking night. Great venue and great atmosphere.

    I saw all of those mate. Seduction was my favourite, you must be from the same era as me.
    This song was one I remember from the early days.

    When I lived in Germany I remember Sven Văth playing his legendary 12 hour sets with a couple of crates of beer and, eh, a few other things. I still love accident in paradise, strangely its very chilled given his pumping DJ sets. Saw him, Carl Cox and some others at Brixton Academy, messy.

    Genuine question as I know next to nothing about this sort of music, other than I enjoy the trainspotting soundtrack...

    When people talk about “a great DJ” does it usually mean that they’re particularly talented on decks (like a guitarist for example) when you go see them live, or is it more that they’ve got a good ear for knowing what mixes well and they produce good music? Or a mix of both/something else?

    Like I say, it’s not something I know anything about and I’ve traditionally been one of those unenlightened ones that see DJs as making it big from playing other folk’s records!

    A mixture of those things, technical ability in mixing tunes together whilst getting the pitch right on tunes with different BPM. Knowing how to manipulate the dancefloor through the choice of tunes as well.

    Back in the rave days it was also about having the right contacts as well, those that made a decent fist of it had a source of the white label demo pressings of stuff sent out to them from record shops on a weekly basis. Ultimately the quality of the tunes they got would determine how good they could be.

    One of my mates who was the main DJ at Calton Studios back then got in with a shop called music power in Essex and was getting the same tunes as the top dj's like Fabio, Grooverider, Ellis Dee, Carl Cox etc were getting at that time. It was sometimes months before you'd hear others playing them.

    Cheers for the response 👍 I hear a few friends and colleagues on about good DJs, and I couldn’t tell the difference between one of the top dogs and the guy from the local nightclub, but at least I know a bit more about what makes the best, the best, now!

    You could also look at the fact that some dj's are producers. Literally bringing together a number of strands to create their own music. DJs traditionally are selectors that move one tune into the next or have some sort of link so theres a flow.

    Some DJ's are great selectors of amazing tunes but cant mix them for toffee. Personally I dont mind that as long ass they know their limitations and do what they are good at
