In life, I am very much a creature of habit. When comfortable with one method of doing things, I tend to stick with it. This lifestyle also applies to DJing. I began in 1986, and unless a track or mix was unavailable on vinyl, I exclusively spun records well into the 2000s. I only switched over to CDs when carrying up to eight crates to every gig became unfeasable due to the wear on my back and smaller booth sizes.
Over the past few years, I?ve repeatedly had an increasing amount of friends question when I was going to begin using a controller. I always cited multiple reasons ? unpredictability, unreliability, and a general uneasiness with the format.
