    I could also quote numerous world renowned DJ’s who say similar.

    Digging for music is also part and parcel of DJ’ing, so the point still stands.

    I guess nowadays people just download stuff & click buttons to beat match. It’s a lot harder to impress.

    sociopaths get a bad rep..

    As you say, an old conversation for another day.

    ive never owned dungarees.
    Really on the Pioneer DJMs? I assume you mean S9s? Almost every accomplished DJ I know uses one, never thought they sounded bad

    thanks for the various outlooks, really interesting to hear how current dj's spinning 45's are percieved.

    I ask mostly because I really like the format, mostly for practical reasons ie price / portability and also co-sign stilt's views.

    I do see ur point tho step, definitely see where ur coming from there!

    Edit: forgot to add - Love Koko's DJ set's!

    Price? Most of them cost what we used to pay for an album!

    (And albums can now cost £30-40+)

    but yeah, when they are at the higher end, £20 for a 7” is painful.

    yeah good point lol i generally dont go for the expensive 7"

    and i usually get music thats exclusive to 7" or reissues that are unobtainable / super expensive for the og 12"

    DWG release of godfather don 'stuck off the realness' springs to mind as well as smif-n-wessun sound bwoy buriell instrumental on the 7" single released earlier this year - both were about a tenner i think, the OG's go for loadsa money


    I confess i paid £15 for some Citizen Kane and Sic Sense 7" singles , again - the OG were way too expensive for me

    got some really nicely priced herrings and other bits n pieces tho.. id say most of the 7s ive got ive paid about £5-7 for

    I've got some portable turntables and mixer, and love the compactness of the setup . And the records take up way less shelf space!



    - i definetly am not paying 14 quid for cypress hill insane in the brain 7" reissue


    Also - disclaimer: im not a serious / practicing DJ - do the occasional gig but mostly bedroom dj ...
    I must admit, with a few exceptions, im a bit dissapointed in the 'portabalist' movement. I was hoping it would result in a whole new wave of new djing styles, with the low cost and space-saving numarks etc on the market. a lot of videos ive seen is basically sub-par scratching but on a hill, or by a river / beach etc. with all the skipless / loop records now available in abundance and battery powered mini turntables, modded with wireless audio etc i expected to see some mad stuff happen by now! Especially with lockdown and all that!
