To truly understand “How to DJ” there are some key learning stages that need to be studied and rehearsed before any budding DJ is ready to move on and blast the audience with their unique and individual mixing style.
Knowing how to DJ goes beyond simply buying a mixing deck and amp and then attempting to cut it up. There are some definite basics that if learnt properly, they will give you the edge when applying your art. The more time you spend learning and applying these basics the better your skills will grow which will result in a much better DJ experience both for you and the audience that are sampling your sound!!
It doesn’t matter if your ambition is to DJ at weddings or to DJ at pubs and clubs. If done properly you are sure to please the people that this most matters to, the paying public or the landlord/club owner who is paying the bills. Get it wrong and the chances are that the venue organizer will not only refuse to pay you for your time but they may also damage your reputation with other event organizers by advising them to steer clear and recommend an alternative DJ source.
