DJ Dance Moves 101 (How a DJ dances)

Really interesting/funny post by that caught my attention and make me laugh too 😉

“To become a rock star DJ, you have to learn how to dance like a rock star DJ. Since space is very limited in the DJ booth, most DJs have adapted to the following 6 dance moves.

1. Fist Pump:

Purpose: The DJ wants to get the crowd pumped because the track is a “banger”
Origin: Jersey Shore Guido DJs
Ex: Fedde Le Grand: His right arm is larger than his left arm from fist pumping so much.

2. Overhead Clap:

Purpose: The DJ’s way of interacting with the crowd. The DJ claps; you clap (very similar to the game of Simon Says).
Origin: As a child, the DJ was a big fan of the game Simon Says so he got the crowd to play along.
Ex: All Djs do this. Who wouldn’t want to make an entire club clap with him?!

3. One Finger Fist Pump: (Almost identical to the fist pump except the DJ does the #1 sign)

Purpose: The DJ wants to remind the crowd that he is THE #1 in the club right now.
Origin: Irish Djs’ way of signaling to the promoter that they want ONE more bottle of vodka.
Ex: Norman Doray: He will finger pump through his entire set if he learned how to DJ with one hand.

4. The Heart: (Makes a heart shape with two hands)

Purpose: The DJ wants to show the crowd that he loves their support (and all the money they spent on buying his music & merchandise).
Origin: Gay DJs way of showing how much he loves the dance floor filled with shirtless sweaty men.
Ex: Laidback Luke: No other DJ can make a more perfect heart with their hands than he can (in a very heterosexual way).

5. Magic Jazz Piano Fingers: (Lift both hands up and wiggle the fingers like you’re playing air piano)

Purpose: To keep the crowd entertained when the melody part of the song is comes on and the DJ has nothing better to do with his hands.
Origin: A jealous DJ’s wife wanted him to show his wedding ring to the disco booth bunnies, so he kept lifting his hands up every 5 mins and wiggling his fingers during his set.
Ex: Sander Van Magic-Finger Doorn. His fingers will fall off if he keeps doing this dance move.

6. The Spread Eagle: (Arms stretched to the side, puff out chest, face the sky)

Purpose: The DJ is showing the crowd that he should be worshipped at that point.
Origin: Brazilian DJs that were copying the statue of Jesus Christ in Rio De Janeiro.
Ex: Tiesto: The trance lord is also the Lord of the Spread Eagle. Even his logo is an eagle with its wings spread open.

Once you have mastered these top 6 dance moves, you are on your way to rock star DJ status.

Once you become a rock star DJ, you can invent your own dance moves. For example, Steve the Ninja Aoki invented the DJ crowd surf; jump into a crowd filled with drunk people and hope you make it back into the booth in time to mix your next track in.



Tiesto, Avicii & Sebastian Ingrosso – Generations (Original Mix)

It has been the BUZZ of the weekend; some people apparently get their hands on a copy of Generations and it has been circulating on internet – I don’t know if its the real version or not, it would be nice if the artist could confirm – but until then what do you guys think? FAKE!!! Just confirmed by Ingrosso – its a fake!

Avicii, Ingrosso, Tiesto – Generation

We just want to give you HouseMusic lovers a heads up, Tiesto, Sebastian Ingrosso and Avicii are in the studio working on a track together. There has not been any word on a release date but I do have confirmation that the track will be called “Generation”. Heres the Tweet that I saw on my Twitter.

From Ingrosso Twitter : TheRealIngrosso Meetings meetings… Now I am of to the studio with @tiesto and @Avicii 13 minutes ago .

Tiestoooooooo lollll

LOLLL I am not a fan of Tiesto but I couldn’t imagine him becoming the most famous dj in world with these DJ skills, pretty sure this video has been edited but its still pretty funny.

Do you guys like Tiesto?

Ultra Music Festival WMC 2010

For those of you who don’t know, the Ultra Music Festival is one of the most famous outdoor electronic music event. It is held annually in Miami, and coincide with the closing of WMC. Here are few videos from March 26th sets:

Tiesto playing AVICII – Bromance!

Eric Prydz opening his set with his brand new remix of faithless!!! LOVE THAT TRACK!! that is the way to reborn an Anthem 🙂

Another video of Afrojack playing his remix “Watcha Say”

More videos to come from SHM gig 😉

75,000Euros for a 3h Dj set…REALLY?! WTF!

I don’t think I will piss off a lot of people by posting this since you guys love music as much as we do here on These videos are from the 2 most famous DJ. At some point in their careers, they decided to go for the commercial and mainstream highway, well this is what happens when you haven’t DJ for a while.
Some rumors in the industry say that Guetta and Tiesto use premixed playlist in most their shows, don’t know if it’s true but the following (rookie mistake) is definitely not helping both their cases.

USEFUL TIPS TO BOTH OF THEM: Every DJ (especially those using laptops) should have an emergency disc close at hand in case of a crash or other problem!
