And that doesn't mean DJs should get on the ego trip that has them spinning only their own remixes for hours on end. "I haven't produced as many tracks as I'd like to, but I'd never spin only my stuff anyway," he admits. "I'm very versatile with my sound."
Being more comfortable behind the decks than in the studio has kept Edgar from reaching that proverbial "next level," but in his opinion, such skills don't necessarily make one DJ better than another. "I'm starting to do more production, but I don't agree with the theory that in order to be taken seriously you have to produce a ton of tracks," he laments. "Personally I don't want to be tied to the studio and thinking, Oh, I have to pump out a track every week. This industry is too cutthroat anyway. Sometimes you'll do all this work and end up getting screwed over by the label, so it's all for nothing. I'm fine doing just a couple of records a year. Little by little I'm getting my foot further in the door."
