Before I reached the venue, I heard the headliner DJ was a legend. When I finally heard the legend’s set, disappointment crumbled me.
At another venue, I heard the same thing about another headliner DJ. They were called a legend.
By this time, it appeared “legend” applied to anyone over age forty and DJed since the late eighties or early nineties.
Like the previous legend, this legend’s set tanked also.
Sometimes, I wonder why Orlando falls for this legend crap. Some joker whose heydays are long gone gets the royal treatment…and tanks. Some I even wonder why they are called legend.
It isn’t just the DJ thing either. Recently, I heard an “experienced” promoter owns a nasty habit of not paying DJs. How did the “experienced” person gain access to Orlando’s DJ community? My guess is they talked a lot bullshit folks wanted to hear. Usually the bullshit involves promising success that never happens.
I understand if said DJ created or helped a movement. Yet, does longevity in the game automatically qualifies someone as a legend?
I found out I wasn’t the only one tired of hearing the word “legend”. An Orlando Facebook friend’s post flat-out said the word was being overused.
So, is that the case? Is the word “legend” being overused in Orlando’s DJ community?
