I've had that dream. I'm on stage with a band at a festival (always a festival for some reason), drummer counts in and I have no idea what song is coming next.

In real life, I've had it all: drink knocked over midi-thru hub with intro playing, controller keys going down three bars into song, plus entire rig not coming off the carousel three hours before gig (a festival, weirdly).

But most memorably: watching helplessly as my guitar falls backwards in slow-motion, smashing two machine heads.

The show, however, has always gone on.

The sad reality of a push button , pre-recorded electronic live setup. You might as well put in a CD and go wait in the back.

agree with Mikelop...

isn't it a daunting thought that a DJ might actually have to do some real work while performing live...vinyl kind of required the DJ to do something...more than press that button.

DJ Terrified    Said...

I'm a DJ myself and been haunted by the same reaccuring dream for years.

I'm DJing at random venue either nightclub, highschool, dance, etc. location isn't very specific but either a school setting or nightclub setting. I can't hear the music or recognize what song is playing but I do know that I'm actually DJ (mixing) I can't see my self doing the actual mixing. While playing music after an unknown amount of time, the crowd stops dancing and then just disappears like if they stopped dancing or got bored. I'm unsure how to determine this dream and trying my best not to read into it.

I have a gig every weekend and play out, I seem to do a better than decent job everytime that I play out. Any ideas as to what this dream means?
