“It’s not the notes, but the space in between the notes.”

“The great horn player Miles Davis, a man who had every right to play a lot of notes, is famous for saying something along the lines of “it’s not about the notes themselves but the space between.” With digital tools, we feel the need and have the ability to do so many things, but very few of them add real value.

Exercise restraint, let the music play, and add things when the mix really needs it – not just when you get bored.


That last line should be drilled into every DJ’s head.
