Been listening to "house music" for the last 16 years, never cared who made the song, sung it, produced etc etc.... Now as a buyer of vinyl atleast for the last 1 1/2, I find I still don't care and just buy what I like. People will be like, have you heard so and so and I will look at them and say, "Don't know, how does it go?" Of course NOW, I have a lot more knowledge of the producers and labels that are out there because I am buying, but to be honest I am not on top of every new release that is coming out. Here are my questions, should I be making a more consistent effort in remembering all this info or not? Will this make me a better DJ or not? Now with most of my records at home, I know most of them but sometimes I forget who did what and I just remember how it sounded and go by that.
I know a lot of music but to remember all the titles, producers, year it came out, just seems so tedious but I know a lot of Dj's who do know this stuff and I respect them for that because I have a good library in them except for the ones who won't hum the tune out....yeah you know who you are. :D
Now I don't feel limited by not knowing everything, because if I want a song I'll pursue it. But is it important?
