It takes a fascinating subject and makes it sometimes painful to read about--painful as in laden with pedantry and cliche. It feels like it was written by one of those fanboys who loves "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and knows why Angel was wearing that bracelet in that one episode and will tell you about it for 15 minutes got turned on to hiphop.

The interviews were good, though. My apologies for mistreating the English language Four and half stars. If you have seen my profile you may think that this book is quite far from the usual, but not so much if we consider my interest in popular culture and, in addition, for my studies of sociology although I am not working in this discipline that has left me "installed" the curiosity about social phenomena.

On My apologies for mistreating the English language Four and half stars. On the other hand, I did not know the phenomenon in itself, that is, the cultural meaning and the history of the music that today has derived in dance music and in our case with the figure of the DJ. A fascinating story of counterculture, working classes and racial minorities actually not really minorities , gay subculture and drugs, a lot of drugs.

The elements that is, the technology for the first disc jockey to be born more than a century ago are: And this is how all starts including the first disputes over copyright and the interests of the record companies.

Although of course there is a third element missing: Over time, there will come the many and varied ways to mix and alter the music. This book is an extensive work that very accurately analyzes the DJ "without going into philosophical questions" or sociological ;- in the words of the authors; that is, a book written from the dance floor: In this brief review just highlight some unknown aspects of this story.

As an example of counterculture: In the middle I leave many episodes: About Studio 54, I cannot resist to explain the experience of the disco group Chic, when they were not allowed to enter in the New York most famous disco -even if here they were playing their own songs- and in revenge the group composed "Fuck Out", a song that retitled became the great hit "Freak Out".

The book is full of anecdotes like this one.

So, maybe, the the only criticisms of the book is that it is excessively detailed in some moments, and perhaps a chronology a bit confusing.

Oct 02, Tosh rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Music and non-music lovers. A super interesting history of the DJ and his record collection.

This book basically covers the time when a man or woman played a record in front of an audience. It covers stuff from the 20's to of course the Disco era to the Northern Soul. I am not into dance music or DJ culture, but saying that this is truly a fascinating history of records and the role it plays in individuals lives as well as social groups of all sorts. The Northern Soul cult is beyond fascinating. Yet are beautiful records. The DJ's would protect their source with their lives.

Also the connection between Gay sub-culture and disco clubs is one fascinating read. Really this is truly a great book. One doesn't have to be a music lover to appreciate the history of DJing that goes beyond discos, etc. Nov 02, Gregarious cline rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is my bible.

I reread it every couple of years and get something new and vital out it every time. I'm glad I initially read it years after I started DJ'ing or it might have over loaded my circuits. It's fascinating that the principles that made these historic DJs, DeeJays, and DiscJockeys amazing still hold true today.

A must read for anyone who has ever attempted DJ'ing once or more. Jan 02, Chuck Pee rated it it was amazing. I teach "electronic music history" because of this book!!!

I cherry-picked chapters around my musical tastes, so I can heartily recommend the parts on reggae and hip-hop. The authors admit that their treatment isn't comprehensive, but focused on their experiences and connections. Still, great stuff on the origins of DJing and the musical forms it spawned.

Nov 24, Kirk Chantraine rated it did not like it. Do you mark a book as read when you have to stop reading since it makes you so angry? Sexist, inaccurate, pretentious and condescending - if you have any attachment to DJing or appreciation for music stay away. Nov 30, Johnpaul rated it really liked it.

This is the other half. The characters, music, moods and ideas all collide. View 1 comment. You could divide this book into two parts basically: From major DJ movements being described with a mostly objective and detached style, we suddenly move into numerous UK micro-genres and spin-offs no You could divide this book into two parts basically: From major DJ movements being described with a mostly objective and detached style, we suddenly move into numerous UK micro-genres and spin-offs not all of which fleshed out to the standards set earlier in the book; I still don't really know how to interpret 'rare groove' as a movement for example.

Is it just a jazz-funk revival in the eighties? I'm not sure if that's because I've been reading the extended, updated version, but the book was surprisingly back-loaded as a result - also to the point of fatigue at times. While my interest started to wane a bit anyway half-way the book by the time disco rolls around I listen to an awful lot of music and don't mind dabbling in spinning records publically myself from time to time, but I've never really warmed to techno, house and its later spin-offs , the descriptions of this club and that DJ and this great breakthough in mixing and that legendary night of 'perfect storms' do tend to get repetitive at some point.

Perhaps you had to be there, as Brewster seems to demonstrate by his rising enthusiasm by the end. Definitely an interesting read however. I might return to it later if I find myself re discovering certain genres; the helpful club charts tucked in at the end don't hurt either. Jun 15, Gary Fowles rated it really liked it. Damn fine doorstop of a book that attempts the almost impossible of charting the history of the DJ.

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life: The History of the Disc Jockey by Bill Brewster

From it's humble beginning in the scratchy age of valve radio right the way up to the Digital DJ. Of course there are areas that don't get covered as much as one would like, but when it's good, such as the rise of Hip-Hop, the Jamaican sound clashes or the Disco era, it's pretty much perfect. Aug 09, Michael Shpilkovsky rated it it was amazing. The books tells the story of the 20 century DJ up until these days. Lots of information about DJs, music styles, clubs, eras, people and so much more!

A must book to whoever loves music and history. Really helped me to step up as a DJ. Apr 26, Brian Gee rated it it was amazing. The amount of new musical knowledge I've gained from this book is unbelievable!

It also features well told stories about the clubs and dancers where musical history was made. Very inspiring and sent me on many journeys of musical research. Overall a good authority on the history of DJ's.

It started off really great and had some great analysis about how culture and DJing helped shaped each other. As the book went on though, the analysis fell off and the book became just a list of facts. Worth reading if you really like the subject. Dec 29, Rebecca rated it really liked it. The book has a lot of great information, focusing mainly on pre Written in , the book kind of lacks depth regarding the period between and , but it's hard to really analyze the impact and influences of an era you're currently living in.

As a result, the last few chapters that focus on the post era are pretty repetitive and seem to reveal a lot more about the authors' opinions than the other sections. I'd love to see an update to this book, especially now that the dance mu The book has a lot of great information, focusing mainly on pre I'd love to see an update to this book, especially now that the dance music sector has really blown up in America.

As a female reader, I expected the book to be male-centric because quite frankly there are very very few female DJs, but at times I felt like even the section regarding those few female DJs was written for male readers only. It wasn't too unnerving or even remotely offensive at all, it just felt like it was very clearly written from an outside perspective about a still somewhat alien group. Perhaps more depth to the section, rather than a few paragraphs, would have helped to develop the character of a female DJ and made her seem like something real.

We got such fully-formed pictures of many other DJs so it felt weird when we didn't get anything here. Overall, if you're into dance music, I'd definitely recommend it.

Dec 10, Peter Stuckings rated it really liked it. Generally a really good read. The authors write with humour and a passion for party music that is infectious. I guess my only reservation and reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is the balance of the book between old and current music. I'd expected a book about modern electronic music, with a little bit of history at the outset to set the scene. Then they race through a period of music that deserved a lot more. But if that doesn't bother you, you'll love the stories about the Northern Soul scene and the rise of original hip hop in the streets and house parties of Brooklyn in the 70s.

Anything you could want to know about how DJ'ing has shaped modern music, and people's enjoyment of it. Read it with some pounding beats ; I have now read this so many times, I keep returning time and again. Then I went back and read the Disco Roots chapter - wonderful how early disco was just good eclectic music Osibisa, Santana, Fela that could be danced to, in a nonjudgemental environment.
