Hype man vs DJ
20 March 2020 | Art and Entertainment
A DJ is a person who mixes recorded music for an audience, a man or woman behind the decks whose aim is to give us great music only.
I'm saying all this to say: I was at a festival recently and I saw artists' DJs confusing themselves all the time on stage. I mean some of these guys call themselves DJs but whenever their artists hit the stage, they become hype men instead. Confusing such roles robs concertgoers of the full live performance experience. Roles need to be clearly defined and stick to.
