Topic: Joris Voorn vs DJ Sneak
DJ Sneak is a class act. Jesus.
From Voorn's Facebook:
@DJ_Sneak One last word about what happened as I don't like people to be misinformed about something stupid.
Last friday I was at @pacha Ibiza playing after Derrick Carter vs Mark Farrina vs Mr. Sneak. They were playing a rocking b2b2b set they on their two mixers and 5 or 6 cd players.
No wonder there was little space to set up my stuff, and when the Pacha sound guy asked them 10 minutes before the end of their set if he could take away 2 cd players Sneak refused.
Then my manager, who happened to be there, asked Sneak again in a friendly way, but he refused again and said something along the line like: "No, this is our time". When my manager asked him how I was supposed to plug my stuff Sneak's answer was something like "I don't care".
Thankfully Mark Farina was more understanding and didn't see the problem, so I was able to build up my set.
I play countless shows every year, and dj booths are more often than not too small and have too much stuff connected. I've been in hilarious situations, balancing laptops and sound cards on various objects and plugging cables in impossible positions, but always with respect for the dj playing before me, even if it's a 'just' a resident.
The same goes for dj's playing after me, even if they're 'just' a resident, I give them space and time to build up their stuff.
Never have I had a situation like last friday, and to be honest, it wasn't a big deal..
The party was great and everybody played great sets!
Until I read Sneak's twitter message: @pacha Insane good crowd&vibe but the best part was telling a Wanker 2 fuckoff 4 telling us 2 move aside so joris could link his laptop&ipad.
The rest is history, and that book is closed for my part.
