    Beatmatching is a skill; whereas selecting tracks is piss easy if you own a pair of ears.

    The DJ's definitely dead except in a few niche circles.
    Track selection isn't a piece of piss. We used to keep a list of interesting combinations up on the wall, though you still had to remember where the best mix was in the track.
    I honestly just think this is easy - if you like the music you'll listen to the tunes regularly, you'll know what sounds good out of what, and where to mix from. Beyond that it's fairly easy just to imagine what one song will sound like coming out of another.

    It's the beatmatching that you actually have to learn.
