dc.description.abstract The celebrations of dance and music have long been cultural strongpoints in history. The mystique behind the power of music created emotions and shared experiences allowed regular men and women to lead audiences on a journey of sound and the human soul. While the professions that these people operated in have changed in names and specificities, the role has long been a staple of our socioeconomic sphere. The latest incarnation of this role is the disc jockey whose job is to present and perform music for the nightlife masses. Progressions in global movements like electronic dance music and electronic music festivals have allowed disc jockeys in America in to reach superstardom and unseen levels of fanaticism amongst mainstream music listeners. Even with the soaring acclaim of these disc jockeys, questions have surfaced that debate whether the disc jockey's initial purpose has been obscured. In this socioeconomic Investigation, I probe into the cultural and economic specifics of what have given the disc jockey this propulsion to the stars and whether this new status will change the future definition of the profession. en_US
