That's exactly how I feel about this and I'm glad I'm not the only one. There's more to DJ-ing than just playing heavy tunes, that's a fundamental rule for every dancefloor. The crowd will respond to music they recognize and like. There's a reason soundsystems used to say 'last plastic' around 1 o' clock- the first part of the session is necessary to get people in the right vibe. And yes, playing your own productions three hours in a row tires very quickly.

Yet this doesn't answer my initial question. Shaka plays really loud as well but you still hear melody; how does he do that? How come he doesn't drown the melody in muffled bass? It's not because his system is always that crisp...
