Never heard of this hotel chain, but it seems interesting

When are we going to stop thinking of people who play music off their iPods as DJs?

Seems akin to calling someone who’s managed to tap out a fun little rhythm on his steering wheel a musician. Or humming an invented tune a composer.

I am not sure but I think that the W Hotel is supposed to be for the rich.  I usually hear about a lot of celebs that stay overnight there.

Even wedding “DJs” have more to work with than people usig iPods. No cross-fade, no pitch control, no BPM counter or estimator. No manual EQs.

W hotels are pretty damn metrosexual already, but this pushes them over into farce land.

Ironic what popular culture can do to something cool and somewhat obscure. All in the name of “marketing” too.
