any DJ going off on one about another suonds like a complete berk imo, especially if they are high profile and relatively well paid for it/it's their job
especially when they bang on about DJing like its quantum physics or they are solving the political problems of the middle east or something
OH THERE IS SOOO MUCH MORE TO IT THAN BEATMATCHING
i have been studying my craft since i was 5 years old and practise mixing for 16 hours a day and once went without food for 2 months so i could buy the rarest vinyl
bellends. sort it out. you don't get it so much with other 'artists'
you don't see authors cunting each other off for not using the longest words, or musicians cunting each other of for not being as good at playing the guitar as them, or sculptors going on a massive brag about how they can scuplt the best balls in the business.
i guess some of the modern musicians get a bit like it but thats more the celeb/pop world than true creators
think the key is that they are twats. i know plenty of playing-an-instrument-type musicians who aren't like that at all. maybe it's just dj types who get an overblown sense of their own importance enought to taunt people with how their loop is ssooooo much better than yours etc.
