Or do you stick to what you want to play?

Being a so-called all vinyl/rare groove DJ where I live just doesn't work in 2016.

If the crowd wants the hits, you play em the hits and sprinkle in some treats. If you're a name and people are there to see you, play what you want. Like, if you're hired or advertised as a rare grooves DJ, then come with it.

nothing worse than a dj spinning for his/her own pleasure and refusing to read the crowd.
