A few questions about DJ-ing

Hi Erol, I've never hear you play live in a room, hopefully that will happen someday. I have some questions please regarding DJ-ing after listening to some of your sets that are online.

You're mixing on the standard setup of Pioneers I noticed; what are your ideas of adding instruments on stage like a sampler? (maybe you've seen the announcement of a Pioneer sampler) What direction do you think DJ-ing is going, if you look at your own sets and those of others?

You've been on the scene for a long time, looking back, how did your set and your taste evolve? Maybe some anecdote you want to share? When and how did you decide to do this for a living? What got you hooked on dance music?

I enjoyed hearing varied tracks like those from Avalon Emerson, Bruce but also nasty acid and jacking tracks like "Foundations", and some classics like "What time is Love" (KLF) that work amazingly well in a big room. You cover a lot of range! Can you tell a bit more about how you put your sets together? For instance, do you match melodic content (in key)?

Thanks again for your time and energy doing this Q&A!
