Tiga posted a status that, in a way, made a big impact on the scene and it takes a big man to admit that.
Looks like Tiga’s post opened a topic that DJs have been avoiding for a long time. We are thanking Tiga for his honestly and humbleness, and post that was in a way unexpected. Strong connection between a DJ and his crowd must exist, and should be full of honest feelings and trust and looks like sharing this experience can help everyone on the scene to connect on a higher level.
”Here’s something nobody talks about; how about when you DONT kill it. How about when you are what is actually wrong with the party. Your programming is lazy, your decisions are Ill-informed, you vacillate between confidence and cluelessness. Your records sound slow. You can’t maintain a connection. The center cannot hold. You summon up arrogance to bolster your position. THEY obviously don’t get it. Those “people” out there. That unknowing primitive mass doesn’t understand the levels: that I’m a tortured post-trance, deep-funk acid-tinged anti-techouse futurist pop-laced groove martyr and that even when my effort is minimal and my energy is anemic and my playlists are best compared to outsider art and my grasp of the situation is utterly compromised by my self-absorption—- they should still bow down to my REPUTATION and go crazy and scream and clap.
But no. There are nights when they know something you don’t. And just like that, for a few hours, the magic is gone. And that’s ok- makes it all the more magical when it reappears in another city, on another night.
So yeah, sorry Rome. I love you but I just didn’t kill it tonight.
