10 Ways A DJ Avoids Spinning Your Requests

Posted at January 18th, 2016 | by Nikita Arora | in Entertainment

DJs at times could be as stubborn as a non-moving caterpillar and can throw us into a state of not my choice of music state of affairs landing in a dip of music deal. Despite of repeated attempts to convince the DJ to play your gig, they can act like Lady Gaga refusing to take your choice in account. Let’s take a gig as to when they will help you offer the seat and when can they make you fall around the floor by looking at various tantrums DJs push you with indirection to make your wit out of their arena of music.


The “I can’t see you” DJ


Practicing their best around the music platform, often DJs are non-receptive to special requests. It is like “Honey! Let me just do my work and you please take the other way round” and no matter what you say, they turn deaf. This is an easy trick as to keeping in mind that the speakers are loud and one can have an easy escape to the request.

Rolling eye DJ

This DJ throws up like a boss on your face making a sweet gesture yet rolling every corner of his eye on your face as to how ‘not so pleased’ does he feel on your request. At times apart from rolling their eyes they can say those kind words and escape their way by saying “Hey, love that track. Will play it soon.” But that becomes a distant dream after a while. The mind-set behind this is to avoid the request in a polite manner in order to avoid ugly scene.


Have done this before-DJ


At times in order to take up a request, DJs often come up with the dialogue that the gig has been played once; I can’t put things on repeat. Thereby swaging off “been there, done that” attitude on face!

The blind and mute version-DJ


The straight off the radar DJ acts as if he is not only deaf to your request but blind to your face expressions, your waving hand and your body. Simply ignore formula is strictly followed up here in order to avoid any request and if you are lucky a “sorry” might be thrown up at you to put you back to your position.

Foreign Language version



You say Spanish, he understands English. All you do is say ‘Hi’ and come back to your position. In such cases, nothing much can be done and none is to blamed. All you can do is move on every beat that comes up and accept this is not your day to have your request played. Don’t make a palm face, not going to help either.


Beat the challenge DJ

One that can be upfront on your request to play the music and hard to reach to; this one is a big challenge platform. As straight as it goes he might just ask you to drop your request and he will play it; if only it pleases him. This DJ is nothing less than a challenge where both the sides are in his court. So, try your luck; may be or may be not!

The straight decline


This one goes harsh and rude and says no to your request straight forward. A flat no comes your way on every request. This one is like “I am the only Boss

Hands down battle

This one is one on one take as the requester looks at DJ and DJ looks at the system. Whoever loses first, the other wins. Mostly the requester loses and the DJ never gives up. This is like “I’ll stand till the end, you be whatever you are.” Sorry lad, play at home.


Get me a drink DJ



This one works with a barter system. You want a request to be played, eh? Get me a drink first. This one be like “Money is everything honey”. Sounds like a paycheck before the music sets the stage on fire.

Out of your league DJ

The hidden deck, you can’t see me DJ and a placement that clearly ignores your existence in the club. The system location for DJ to play is by default so remotely located that even if you rub yourself against everyone in the crowd, this won’t help you at all. So just be there and enjoy.


Love your gig and wait for your chance!
