Interesting you say so, many people have gone away. Over the last two years the site has changed drastically. There was a unique flavor to tjsdjs, a site where alot of the material posted was by the ACTUAL producer and now we have too much outside content (probably without their consent). However i don't think one should tackle DJ UNIVERSE in a negative manner, he is after all providing MANY guys with regular material.
I'm all for growth but it must be monitored and be packaged properly. As for guys selling their stuff, it is entirely up to them what they do, however my opinion is that it shouldn't necessarily be on this site. My good buddy and fellow producer GRAAF would put in time and make major effort to give us the latest tracks, but i'd often see people complain of his quality and that he is now selling. Let him be, he was grown, matured an evolved.
Yes, this site was more for the love and not for money, however on the flip side i see their actions as reasonable as as there are many peeps who just leech and can be as ungrateful as it comes: so it's a catch 22. Personally, my packs have had over hundreds of views and downloads and i'd get only 20-30 comments and a few thanks...trust me after a while people get demotivated and move away to "greener pastures" if i may use the term. I mean when last did you see i.e EDUB or CODEMAN post here...?
I do however also feel that pretty soon this site will eventually turn into ANY other site and possibly be forced to close due to too much "HEAT" from the posting of stuff like Funkymix, Crooklyn Clan etc.
The question is "What now"?
Please can i also get feedback from the site masters, other djs, producers and the general user. Id love to also hear what's on your mind. Let's not fight and insult one another, it's very tacky. Let's rather work together and see how we can improve the standard of this site.
lol yeah we actually arent supposed to post them on here but the admins got lazy (including me) from deleting those posts.....Is there other Websites that have them, I only found this one Im sure there are more out there,anyone can help appreciate it alot
