Tao Te DJ – Chapter 5

Heaven and Earth are impartial; They see the ten thousand things as straw dogs. The wise are impartial; They see the people as straw dogs. The space between heaven and Earth is like a bellows. The shape changes but not the form; The more it moves, the more it yields. More words count less. Hold fast to the center.

Translation-
The role of the DJ is to create a journey of music.  The more the variation of the music, the more people are drawn in to the sound.  A wise DJ understands the need for an ebb and flow of the created musical landscape to provide the crowd a solidified mix.  More extraneous flourishes like the over use of filters or effects detract from the original center of the mix.
