LET IT RIP!

Deejaying in second life is moderately simple and requires a minimal investment. Once you have chosen the program that is right for you and have figured out how to set up the stream, you are pretty much good to go; all that you are left to do is choosing the right club to get started and network around the club circuit, to build up a following and a reputation, being a good DJ however, that’s a completely different story.
As a DJ and a Club owner I have been exposed during my career for the past year and a half, to all sorts of colorful individuals and have also learned that each DJ has not also a music fetish, but also bring their personalities to the music sharing experience and, sad but true, some when achieving moderate success, fall into the “insane-diva-pit” requests group.
There are some club owners that will jump through the ring of the “diva-pit” requests, all with the sole purpose of getting your new club going or your dying club saved with this person’s traffic. My Club is co-owned by 6 other people -hence the name Club Se>en, which also fits the seven sins theme- and during the past year, we have had a few well-known DJs and others not-so-known among our staff and all have worked with us under one very simple rule: we simply refuse to pay a salary per set on top of tips, no matter how awesome you think you are -we feel that if you NEED to get paid, there’s a reason behind it and it’s never a good one-.
I stumbled upon a DJ recently and decided to ask one of my staff managers to contact him to see if he would like to work with us, he was contacted indeed and he had this huge list of demands, one of them being being paid a very specific amount on top of tips. This of course reached negotiations to a moot point, so we all moved on. The SL Club circuit however -specially when it refers to gay clubs-  is very tight; most club owners, DJs or staff know each other, have worked together at some point or are friends outside club hours.
I overhead, quite accidentally that the afore mentioned DJ had the habit of spinning music ripped from youtube videos and that the quality was far from desirable too. This had me wondering on the effect it would have had on my venue, should I had decided to honor his demands and consequently having him DJ his low quality music while putting up with his superstar attitude.
Here’s the fine line and a word of advice to all aspiring DJs out there -and not so new ones with the wrong attitude-, SL or RL. If you are going to do it, do it for fun. Fun like laughter is contagious, you will find out that like pretty much anything in life, if you enjoy what you are doing and keep it real and simple, success will follow -and for the love of god, don’t rip tunes from youtube, plenty of links out there to get the tune you want or someone has requested, you just need to google intelligently-

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
