What made the first DJs standout, in the early days?

I've been listening to sets from 1994, including the first Deck Wizards with Mark Allen, Chaos Unlimited with Tsuyoshi etc.
If they were playing off DAT (I assume, this was before my time), what was it that made them stand out and become the premier DJs back then (and to this day)? Was it simply track selection and the journey they invoked?
If the sets weren't always recorded and listened to later, was it the party goers who were there and experienced this the ones who attested to these magnificent sets and thereby, word spread?

Thanks!

The music was new and the scene was new. It offered a new outlet for immoral behavior & gave the old hippies something to do. Now it's become like rock music. Generic & simplified with no direction or innovation.

Djs now get maybe 1 hour to bang out their associated labels current top 10 that sound the same as last weeks beatport top 10.           Revisiting the past.

The music itself. Each release was a celbration coming out of fun/heart exploring honest inner psychedelia.
Guys had no formulas as today, so the music itself was more original.
Most releases sounded different from each other and own. Tsuyoshi was brilliant. I still got a cassette with a great mix of his, though the mix came from a one of the elder Matsuri CD releases I think. Still very nice music.

The Matsuri sound was amazing. My oldest sister came back from a trip around the world with a DAT tape of Matsuri when I was a wee teen and it blew my mind.           Revisiting the past.

djs were able to play 3 hours in a regular party - nowadays it must be consider crazy to allow that.           ...
