Mind the DJs!
If you are not doing it so far, please start now: When you hear a good song that makes you run to the dance floor so you don’t lose a single beat – take a look at who is playing. We need this feedback and lots of people don’t notice DJs so they can’t give us this feedback when we ask. =( So please be proactive and get to know DJs, their music and style. This will help us bring the best DJs in the future and at the same time you will know what to expect when you see a DJ on a lineup – so everybody wins =)
