What is a DJ?
"DJ" is an interesting term these days, if you think about it. Everyone seems to have a different idea of who a DJ is and what a DJ does.
Some people, when they hear the term "DJ," think of someone like Tiesto, Deadmau5, or David Guetta. These kinds of DJs are artists who are creating mostly original content in a range of styles from EDM to Dubstep to Drum and Bass. And they usually prefer to be called "Producers", "Electronic Musicians" or something similar.
Other people hear the term "DJ" and think of people like DJ Jazzy Jeff or Grandmaster Flash. These guys are hip hop instrumentalists. They create beats and play samples from other songs. These are the guys who specialize in "scratching" - you know, that iconic "wicky wicky" sound that most people associate with DJs.
The letters "DJ" actually stand for "disc jockey," and the original idea of who a DJ is and what a DJ does is just that: he or she jockeys discs. Back in the day, if you hired a DJ, he or she would show up to your event with a powerful sound system and a crate full of pop records (yup! The vinyl kind). He or she is the one in charge of making your party fun! If you hired a good DJ, he or she will play a lot of hits - both old and new - and keep the dance floor full all night.
