    how can you have a 20 minute dj competition with a trance dj....all that is required is to 'transition' between tracks twice, or three times at the most

    whoo! tribe board got a biggup! wheeee!!!

    i agree with tommy, not enough time for the mixing djs.

  11. Zenmaster Chi

    I agree.

    But due to time constraints we had to make the sets approximately 15 minutes.

    However, you could nail three amazing mixes. All competitions are going to be subjective to a certain extent.

    Still, if we can do it at one of the campus clubs, I'd like to stretch the sets out to 30 minutes.

    That'll give everyone plenty of time to play...

    how do you compare 20 mins of trance to 20 mins of hiphop? in terms of 'degree of difficulty' and 'talent', there's no comparison imho. you could give them 60 mins each and it still wouldn't matter

    It's 2pm. Shouldn't another dj be on now?

    I can't take many more crappy music train wrecks!

    ohh god stop this horror!!

    thank god its over!

    Is this an Intrauniversity battle?

    why must we always curse everyones talent...not everyone is a superstar dj, so why not just give them credit for trying...i dont think any of these competitors are prettending to be a "Headliner" and may still be learning how to mix, scratch and whatever....cut them some slack, and let them try...

    you dont get any better by not practicing...and for some this may be there practice time...

    that is just my opinion...
  17. Plato

    Plato TRIBE Member

    practicing should be done before going on air.

    otherwise people, such as those of us bitching, will remember the name of....well actually i dont remember that last djs name...sneh....but if i could i would remember him as a shitty programmer/mixer

    this is a chance for them to show what talent they have.
    if they are practicing on air then they deserved to get slammed for it.

    I'm a Trance DJ and I can scratch better than the last guy.

    The guy who's on now is good though [​IMG]

    ^^^ and that is yer opinion, which is fine by me....i was simply looking for an answer, and you gave me a valid one...

    I'm not knocking their ability, you have to start somewhere, but why in the hell would they enter this "competition" if they sound like that? I sure as hell wouldn't. Some of my friends think I'm pretty good, I think I'm shite and refuse to make a CD let alone enter some competition? ..

    That's just me though.
  22. Plato

    Plato TRIBE Member

    too bad there aint enough hard trance tracks that call for scratching eh?

  23. Chiclet

    Chiclet TRIBE Promoter

    What criteria are they judging with?

    How are you supposed to compare a hip hop turntablist to a Jungle DJ? It's like beat juggling vs. beat matching.

    I was wondering the same thing!
