DJ Tiesto calls vinyl records "Outdated" and "A Nightmare"

from DJ-E MAGAZINE


AVC:What are your limitations when you travel? Do you limit the vinyl?

T: I have a lot of records with me, no vinyl though.

AVC: Is that a matter of convenience?

T: It’s not a matter of convenience, it’s just that vinyl is so outdated nowadays. I can make a track in my hotel room today, and play it for the crowd tomorrow. That never happens with vinyl. I played a lot of acetates at the end of my vinyl period—I used to make tracks and get them pressed in four or five days—but the quality was always so bad and they would skip all the time. The vinyl days for me are over. I still buy vinyl, but only albums, and just to play. For DJing, vinyl is a nightmare.
