What DJs Really Do

What DJs Really Do | Real DJ


After this video went Viral of Laidback Luke, Steve Aoki, and Sander van Doorn pretending to play and ‘touch buttons’ Varj Arman decided he needed to reply.

This Youtube video ofΒ Varj Arman or ‘Arman‘ shows us 1 on 1 what a real DJ does; and what a real DJ looks like when mixing/performing live.


Or what they SHOULD be doing with their time, when they are not playing a pre-recorded set!

After the video of Laidback Luke, Steve Aoki, and Sander van Doorn from a festival went viral, where all 3 were “DJing” together, and Art Department criticized them for it, and someone made a similar video of them to a make them eat their words, I thought it would be fun to show people what DJs REALLY do, or what they SHOULD be doing instead of playing air guitar, twiddling knobs necessarily, or generally doing the same thing the crowd is doing but in the DJ booth.

For everyone that has been asking, the tracks are:

1) Hot Since 82 – Knee Deep in Louise
2) Green Velvet – Bigger than Prince (Hot Since 82 remix)
