I DJ'd and wrote music for a living before my DR came on 5 years back. Today, I got a message from another DJ / Producer who also has DP / DR. He's had it longer than me. There are differences. He says he never found the DP / DR affected his music production although DJing is really hard. He still goes off around the country and to other countries DJing, which is amazing to me.
My experience was completely different though. After 6 months of DR I couldn't get excited about new music anymore. This might have been because I realised I couldn't cope with DJing, that I was going to loose my main source of income and so I had to write more tunes. This didn't work, I put all my effort into tunes and they mostly came out a bit weird, sometimes really crazy. It completely affected music for me. I even stopped listening to all music at home. When I did listen, it was to old music that I used to love and I found that I still did. Also, though, I found that old music that I hadn't heard before could be really good to me. Weird, huh?
Now, my DR has backed off a bit, I don't have it really bad like I used to although it's still 24/7. I've found a new style of music that mimics an old style of music and I can get along with it just fine when I'm really focussed. I'm writing music again, and have even had stuff released.
So, In a nutshell, yes I totally understand what you are saying. For some people DP/DR can affect their taste in music so that they only like old music that they used to listen to before they got ill and it can make you feel a little bit like your old self again too. Do bear in mind though, that a lot of today's music is utter pants anyway, so is it really surprising
