Should A DJ Own An MP3 Player?
So my wife wants to buy me a MP3 player. I am not sure how I feel about this. I mean, is it even ethically feasible for a dee jay to own an mp3 player? Not only that, but I'm still a little unsettled about the transition from vinyl that I was literally forced to make years ago. It still doesn’t set right with me. I miss them …terribly. But now, to ditch my CD collection (did I mention it was extensive) for a little device that my thumb will cover all the buttons... I just don’t know. Scrolling down to find the right song. It takes away the process. The steps to the process of which I speak: 1. Going to the man cave…think I will listen to some music. 2. I am going to stand here and peruse the CD collection (did I mention it was extensive) 3. I am going to pull out 5 CDs and see which one is sending off “THE VIBE”… 4. I put in the CD and while the first song is playing I look over the liner notes (again) and the musicians. At this point I may do some cross referencing with other CDs. 5. I listen to the CD completely….and again…and again. Somehow I feel , I will be losing this process with a MP3 player. The only plus….it is portable….I can be in hands reach of all my CDs anytime day or night….that is appealing.
