My considerations of why I want to move to NYC for 6 months is, I have a friend who's moving there also, and it would be a great experince together. If we're going I would apply for extended tourist visa, and not illegally immigrate, but I would have to work illegally though. In Denmark clubs are usually open thursdays, fridays and saturdays. But in NYC I'm sure clubs have open 7 days a week, which makes it easier to make it a living, eventhough the salary is modest. Regarding salary I've heard, that it's common in NYC, that DJs only play sets of 1-2 hours, because a typical club night has multiple DJs as line up for an evening. In Denmark ther's often only 1 DJ, who plays 5-6 hours. This of course justifies the lower salaries, if this is true!? My motive for going to NYC and make a living is not to "break through" and become a star DJ. The city already has many famous DJs that you can't compete with. And I certainly don't expect residencies at Crobar, Cielo, Avalon or Pacha I was more hoping that there were several smaller Clubs with opportunities for me to hooke up with. The most important thing is, to be able to make a living out of DJ'ing. I'm quite surprised to hear of the roughness and competition, mostly because when I vistited NYC (may 2005) I felt the mentality was very openminded, helpfull and networking-minded in general. But it doesn't sound like it goes for DJ business. One more thing. I'm also curious of how the skill level is amongst DJs, when you're not necessarily playing in big (famous) clubs. I have an experience from when I was in NYC. I was at Avalon, downstairs main floor Tall Paul was playing, upstairs (the R'N'B/Hip Hop room), this DJ was playing, I admit that he played some great tracks which is the most important, but he didn't mix them creatively together, mostly just cutting. When I went to the DJ booth I noticed, that he wasn't using the turntables (They were off and the cover down). He had a lot of burned CDs. I would think that, in a big club like Avalon, the "RNB/Hip Hop" DJ would use at least some vinyl, and with that amount of burned CDs, I thought maybe he is a noob - eventhough the choice of music was good, and he held a great party, that of course justifies he's residency there. I just think of newly started DJs when I see "no vinyls" and lots of burned CDs. That's also partly why I assumed that there's possibly (smaller) clubs for me to hooke up with. A website with streaming mixes is a great idea to promote oneself. But connections/networking is also necessary, which is why I turned to this Forum. Doesn't this change the perspective? A bit?
