15 years ago, when I started to play records, DJs were valued mainly for their criteria when selecting songs. In a set of 3-4 hours, there was a multitude of st...yles. Risk was valued, the created experience, the trip... They were shamans capable of creating atmospheres and changing perceptions, however, I have the feeling that today the DJ who plays different sounds within the same session is undervalued, even frowned upon. Why should we stick to playing only one genre? I'm a DJ because I love generating emotions through mixing different sounds and creating sensory connections on the dancefloor. That's why I limit myself a lot to see how sometimes the audience and mainly the scene itself is pushing you towards musical homogeneity. That is deriving from there being very little originality in the sets of many DJs. Here, obviously, I include myself, since I do not always consider that the conditions to be able to take risks are ideal. I try to read the public, and when I feel I can, I do, but sometimes I can't always pull it off. Not always take risks means that the public enjoys more. However, not risking causes me some fear. If I grew up watching, listening and learning from eclectic DJs like Laurent Garnier, Sven Väth and many other local DJs, how will be in 15 years the DJs whose role-models are artists that take no risks?
