Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

This is possibly the most common question for all beginner disc jockeys and referred to as a D.J. for short. The very first thing to do is to do a bit of research. Which kind of D.J. do you wish to be? There are different types of D.J.'s since they D.J. in different ways. The 3 Big Kinds of D.J.'s are:

Mobile D.J./ Mobile Entertainer
Club D.J.
Battle D.J.
Mobile D. J.

They take their equipment on the street and do gigs at Faculties, private parties, special occasions and the like. They use just about all types of disc jockey equipment such as karaoke equipment.

Mobile D.J.'s are entertainers also.

They get the crowd involved by playing games with all the music, singing, playing audio and Pioneer ddj-rz other party favorites that involve entertaining the audience.

Mobile D.J.'s usually have a disc jockey PA system they bring with them into the gig.

This allows the disc jockey to broadcast the music being played. A PA system consists of an amplifier and 2 speakers.

Club D. J.

It's the Club disc jockeys capacity to play various types of songs and make it sound great that makes them stand out. That's the reason why they get paid the big bucks.

To most it is not a puzzle why the club disc jockey is the most sought after D.J.. Among my favourite club disc jockeys that cross all categories of disc jockeying is D.J. Cash Money from Philadelphia, PA.. He has some of the quickest hands on the faders and turntables that I have ever seen.

For their songs many club disc jockeys utilize Technics SL-1200/1210 Turntables. You Can now locate bar D.J.'s using Final Scratch by Stanton or Serato Scratch Live by Rane. Club D.J.'s"play with the crowd" meaning that they have developed the ability to read the audience and understand what songs to play based on audience response.

This takes some time to develop but once you have mastered this step it allows you to explore fresh songs in the club that you may not otherwise play as a result of inexperience. This is a great way to create a livelihood if you are able to get a residence in a number of clubs.

Battle D.J. or Pioneer ddj-sx3 Turntablists

They are a particular group of highly skilled disc jockeys that do tricks using the turntables and mixer. Through the years of practice they've been in a position to develop their skills of scratching, mixing and most importantly beat juggling.

Beat juggling is when a D.J. can control two documents to the point at which it seems like he's producing one new beat from two distinct ones. Since these skills are highly improved most combat D.J.'s could be a team D.J. or a cellular D.J. because the skills cross all types of disc jockeying.

When you know what type of D.J. you want to be you want to learn what type of equipment disc jockeys utilize.

The Four questions any new disc jockey should ask before buying any new equipment are:

How or in what capacity will I be using my D.J. equipment (e.g. club D.J., remixing, for parties)?
How much do I want to spend?
Where will I buy all this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I really need?
Every one of these three kinds of disc jockeys I mentioned above utilizes the exact same D.J. equipment for the most part.

These are:

2 (2) turntables like the NumarkTTX1 Turntables
2 (2) slipmats
Two (2) cartridges like the Shure M44 7 mounted on a Technics Headshell
One (1) mixer like the Rane TTM56 (Mixers)
One (1) pair of cans such as the Stanton Guru D.J. 3000 Headphones
