True. And this niche might even be big enough to be of interest.
Allow me a sidenote: in my country (switzerland) they have recently
decided that a DJ is not allowed to use an iPod/Laptop/Compilation-CD-Rs
for DJing *unless* hey pays a small amount for every "copied" track. And
that is even if he got the originals at home.
So a DJ either carries all his vinyl/CDs to the club or pays the fee of a
few 1000$. So much for open-minds in the music industry...
