My name is Tom, and I love DJing.
I first started DJing back in 2004 when I was a student at the University of Houston. Since then, my DJ career has taken me all over the United States where I’ve had the opportunity to spin for many great people at some amazing events.
If you’ve ever felt that you could be a great DJ, but never knew how to get started, then this site is for you. It’s my hope that these posts will help you find your way into one of the most rewarding careers around!
There are two things that make a DJ great:
1. Ability to read the crowd and play the music they want to hear.
2. Ability to seamlessly mix songs together without hesitation or awkward moments.
Anyone can do this, but it takes practice, dedication, and experience.
Learning how to mix is easy and anyone can do it. There are plenty of tutorials found online and even in shopping centers for mixing on turntables and CD players.
Once you have those skills down, it’s time to take it to the club. There is no better way to learn how to be a great DJ than practicing in front of an audience. It’s like being on stage as an actor: no amount of rehearsal compares with a live performance in which every moment counts and you know that hundreds of eyes are riveted on your every move.
I have been a DJ for over 15 years. One of the most common questions I get asked is how to become a really good DJ. There are many components that go into making a good DJ and anyone who tells you otherwise is not being completely honest with you.
These are the areas where I believe you should focus your attention if you want to be a great DJ:
In this blog, I will discuss all of these areas in more detail and give some tips on how you can improve in each area.
DJ’ing is a fun activity and in this blog, I’ll show you how you can get started being a DJ. A lot of people have asked me what equipment they need to get started.
Well, first thing, you’ll need a laptop to run all the software on. You can get away with a PC or a Mac. I personally use a Mac and I find it runs all the software smoothly.
You will also want to get some DJ software to run on your laptop. The two most popular kinds of software are Traktor and Serato Scratch Live (SSL). I’m not going to go into detail about which one is better because it’s really just personal preference.
Traktor has an advantage over SSL though because you can use it with pretty much any controller whereas SSL is mainly only used with the Pioneer DJM-800 mixer and the Technics 1200 turntables. If you are looking for a cheap solution then Serato is probably not for you because you’ll need to buy some expensive hardware too.
Welcome to my site! My name is Jason, and I love being a DJ. While I am no superstar, I have been lucky enough to be able to do it professionally for the past 10 years, so it is safe to say that I know a thing or two about DJing.
As such, I really enjoy helping others get started in this amazing industry. If you are someone who has always wanted to try their hand at DJing but never knew where to start, then you have come to the right place!
