In case you missed it, the video “What DJs do these days” went viral overnight thanks to the amusing depiction of Steve Aoki, Sander van Doorn and Laidback Luke performing at a Mixmash pool party in Miami. In conjunction with a funk soundtrack, the video’s captions parodied the actions of the “press-play” DJs with lines like “Don’t mind this hand,” “I’ll just touch this knob right here for no particular reason,” and “Lemme touch that knob.”
And of course, the very outspoken DJ Sneak put in his two cents in response to the video:
Despite the parody, Laidback Luke definitely has the DJ skills, as proven in his DJSounds show, where he gives viewers a close look at what exactly goes on behind the decks, and Steve Aoki shared his thoughts on DJs as entertainers. But all in all, the video’s definitely worth checking out.
