I learned to dance in the San Francisco bay and the DJs there never beatchmatched and even the crossfade was done rarely and when done it was in a way that let one song end clearly so you could say thanks and look for another dance. Here in Zurich I see a lot of DJs not playing the last few notes of the songs and crossfading songs together. I've found it a bit more chaotic to say thanks and bye and so on. Also, by cutting off the last notes, I feel like I sometimes miss out on the signature part of the song and the dramatic ending. It feels like a bummer. A few times they've even beatmatched which confuses everyone as to whether we should change partners or continue since the beat never breaks. I tend to say thanks, but newer follows will sometimes not notice the change and feel like I'm dumping them half-way through the song. In these cases, only about half the people leave the dancefloor. To me, it seems to that by trying to show of their DJ skills, the DJs are doing more harm than good but I'm curious what other people think. I'd especially like to know about the DJing culture around where you all live and what people go for. PS - Can the Zurich DJs playing Cuban music stop playing "Conga Tour" every night and several times per night?
