Review: I really really enjoyed this show. I binge watched it over the course of 2 days (and I don’t watch much TV) and my wife just started watching it on my recommendation. It has quality actors and does a good job exploring their personalities with some depth to each major character. One aspect I appreciated was the ability to experience what life could be like as a famous DJ. These are not people like most of us. They have money and fame yet the situations this series presents could be what real life is like for some.
I will tell you I enjoyed the show so much because I can somewhat relate, or at least reminisce and pretend, what my life could be like in similar situations. I used to party quite a bit in my youth. Clubbing and music festivals were a very big part of my life. And that’s how I met my wife. Armin Van Buuren’s “Love you more” featuring Racoon is to this day our song. I wouldn’t say dance music was our thing per se, but that in particular song was ours.
We slowed down and eventually stopped completely after we got married and started a family. I’m sure most people have similar stories about their youth, although many of our old friends did make careers out of it and we simply lost touch because of it.
I’m 39 now, was a fire fighter for 11 years and now a safety manager for an energy company. We have 2 kids. A 7 year old boy and a 5 year old daughter. We love them unconditionally and would do whatever we need to give them a good life. I couldn’t imagine having kids and trying to live the lifestyle of a professional DJ. We used to travel all over to see the worlds top DJ’s. Many of our friends were DJ’s, club owners and producers (and many still are- we just don’t hang out anymore). We got into most venues vip and gratis, met some of the worlds most famous DJ’s and then had them over for after parties. I’m talking about seeing a badass DJ at a venue then hanging out with them for another set or two with close friends at home, long into the next day. We have a gb of pics dedicated to us hanging out and partying. It was indeed a fun time of our lives.
But I digress. The good old days were fun indeed and a joy to remember. But being a responsible father and a working professional is also rewarding. I couldn’t imagine trying to be a good father and husband while maintaining a career that involves that level of fame and lifestyle. I gladly traded that lifestyle to where I am today.
We are a rare breed that actually planned our family out ahead of time. During the first 2 years of marriage we discussed the pros and cons of having kids before making a decision, knowing that we would have a completely different lifestyle. We chose a family and never looked back.
This show is indeed fun and entertaining but obviously very personal to me but maybe not to most. I really hope they thumbs up a season 2. At my age and status it’s just fine to reminisce on netflix rather than at the club. Or even trying to live vicariously through fiends. It’s difficult to maintain lasting friendships with people in that scene if you are not in it.
Netflix do your thing and bring us season 2. It’s no fun seeing an open ended cliffhanger and then nothing. We need closure from a show like this. And a suggestion, include a better soundtrack with longer sets. Music is a big theme of the show after all. Maybe have top DJ’s create new music just for the show. Netflix has the rights to the soundtrack and could make additional money through that as well. Just saying…
