Do You Think All MC's Are Really Annoying & Egostical?

Post by caspian » Tue Jun 26, 2007 10:10 pm

I've just gone into loft & got my old tape deck out to play some of the old skool mixes i had & it confirmed why i hadn't listened to them for ages not because they're on tape & poor quality but the reason is All MC's Are Really Annoying & Egoistical

I've even known plenty of DJ' who turn the volume right down on the mic probaly because they find them really annoying.

I remember back in the day trying to listen to the music only & often thought MC's ruined & interrupted my 'journey far too often even more so than raids! MC's are the reason I stopped going to D&B events & found myself gettin into some house

Why did/do they persist on having MC's? What do you all think about MC's?

Mods: I wasn't sure where to post this topic so i apologise if any of your think it's in wrong forum.

mcs hype the crowd up!if your at a live event it would be pretty boring if djs just got behind the decks after every set.yeh some are better than others but alot of the classic oldskool sets wouldnt be the same if there wernt mcs.if you dont like em...dont listen to em...simple.

Depends. Some MCs make a set but most just ruin it.

Where would Top Buzz be without Mad P? Or Sasha without Joe Peng?

Or the Rat Pack without Everson Allen? :lol:

depends if the DJ is shite then the MC can cover up the clangers by babbling shite !!!!! :lol:

then again most 91 - 92 sets were spoil by over the top babbling

id say there was only about 3 at the time worth listening to
not a big fan on them myself though

there alot better these days for sure there have set lyics
and dont just talk shit

mcs can be an essential part of the night but alot are just blaggers in caps!!

A DJ without an MC is a bloke playing bloody good music........and MC without a DJ is a bloke in a cap shouting alot!!

I just wish more of them would know their place.....

I don't mind them if its just the odd phrase here and there getting the crowd going - but a lot of the stuff Ive heard is just non stop chatting of shit over the top of tunes, which for me is pretty pointless.
The tunes should speak for themselves - and if they don't & need someone chatting over the top, then they obviously have some much needed content missing from them.

Most are yes, but there are one or two who most definitely aren't.

Yeah there's definitely some MCs who aren't. I'd say Ribbz is - I've heard him ask for the mic to be turned down for one thing :lol:

That "if you don't like them don't listen" comment is pretty silly though, the whole point is that some people want to listen to the music without having the MC on top! It's pretty hard not to hear them you know if you're listening to the music :lol:
