So recently a homie of mine told me that he's started spinning. I asked him what does he spin, and he tells me how he's into techno and house. I then proceed to ask him, do you spin on vinyl or CD's and he said no I'm on a laptop but I mix that shit raw.
This is where I get confused and peeved (a little, not a lot). A DJ is someone who actually spins vinyl (and even CDs) but to say you're 'spinning' on a laptop, that's not deejaying, rather you're just a laptop specialist (credit due to Cubsin7 for that term). Like the music nazi who decides what playlists that everyone should listen to at a club or function at someones house. Did I miss the meeting to say "We're changing the format on what dictates a dj"? Discuss and ooontz away! This also includes the hipster a-holes who use ipods to 'mix'.
