last month i posted an awesome ttl interview with eli escobar, haido’s hero du jour. earlier this evening pasey pase tweeted about eli interviewing stretch armstrong, a new york dj who’s been around forever, and was responsible for breaking records like live at the barbecue and halftime. he’s so sage, i guess it comes with having grey stubble or something… seriously though, it’s a long read, but well worth it.
Sadly, most djs who use [serato], and that’s most djs, don’t know the first thing about sound fidelity, and they will play files that sound like ass. I won’t keep anything in my computer that is less than 192kbps. It’s not fun hearing a 128kbps mp3 blasting through a sound system. So I’d say that it’s a great convenience for real djs but at the same time has cheapened djing.
