There seems to be a little confusion on the distinction between 'art' and 'craft'.
Is DJing something that almost anyone can learn to execute, relatively easily, from a technical standpoint?
Can anyone then translate that into creating a strong emotional response among their audience, or pushing forward a culture?
Some djs are tradespeople, some are craftsmen, some part-entertainer-part-jukebox and one in every two million people are artists. Me? I just love music.
The Ramp Show is an internet/radio show based in London, I provide a new mix last Thursday of every month.

A special fanx to DJ Kimble who generously provided me with the knowledge, inspiration & technical assistance to help me venture into the canyonesque open vastness of Soundcloud.
