It's REALLY hard
DJing is a fine art. I'm not talking about that scratching bullshit either I'm talking about the simple ability to get a whole hours(or maybe more) worth of music to flow nicely with appropriate rises and falls.
. . . .
Rarely do you go to a (standard) club and hear a good music flow.
Both these point are extremely valid. For the few gigs I've done for high-school age students (having to use autotuned junk that you hear on commercial radio) have been miserable experiences for me as a DJ. You play something that they don't even half recognise, and it goes dead.
However, whenever I do a gig that I'm not restricted to commercial stuff, I have always recieved far better feedback, not because of the music, but because I created that flow that is the aim of DJing.
And yes, scratching is only valid if you're DJing a street battle, in 90s America.
