Zusammenfassung In this study we introduce an action-based concept of instrumentality derived from DJ techniques used in hip-hop and apply it to DJ performances in the club context.We conducted a video content analysis of recordings of 8 professional Techno/House DJs and investigated the occurrence of instrumental and non-instrumental action strategies dur- ing their performances. The results show that instrumental techniques are relatively rare in the club context – only 2 DJs show a clearly instru- mental use of their equipment during stretches of their performance.We therefore conclude that the concept of instrumentality does not suit the particular demands and goals of a Club DJ and suggest further research to find better concepts.
