The Forbes article is cute. "Often toting nothing more than a USB stick and a pair of Pioneer CDJs, their production costs are often negligible..."

Uhh...yeah, that's a lot of DJs, but not any of those guys. Having seen about half of those guys at some point in the past year or two, they nearly all travel with full Traktor rigs (which admittedly aren't much bigger than CDJs) and HUGE AV AND LIGHTING SYSTEMS.
