The note simply asked “Who’s DJing?”
DJ Ikon produced a pen and printed the answer: “Stonerock”
Unfortunately for Stonerokk, it was the latter.
For this man who took the time to acquire a clean napkin, find a pen, compose a question, and present the note to DJ Ikon…
…also took the time to acquire another clean napkin, relocate the pen, express his opinion, and present another note to DJ Ikon.
The man in question gave his name as “Jake,” but was “fresh out of business cards,” and claimed to be a club promoter in Los Angeles. Further analysis of the second note suggests otherwise.
Stonerokk is the quintessential Hollywood DJ, both by inclusion of performances that would fall into the misunderstood category of “Hollywod-style mixing,” for better or for worse, and the fact that the bulk of his weekly residencies consist of Hollywood’s hottest spots (which shall here remain nameless so as to avoid any further employment issues).
In addition, Stonerokk was initially romanced out to Las Vegas based upon his reputation as a top-notch DJ and the prospect that he might inject some of that Hollywood panache into the Palm’s new Fantasy Tower.
Without further forcing onto “Jake” the high opinion I hold of Stonerokk and his DJ work, I point to an issue much more base, given the fact that these notes were from one “industry insider” to another:
“Jake” is an LA club promoter and he has never heard of Stonerokk?
Big up to Stonerokk. Take these napkins and wipe your buttocks with them.
***To possibly be included in a future DJ Support Group post, please save the napkin note so that a proper scan can be made. Thanks***
