Just as with other types of music, it is hard to say what upbeat electronic music is and what it is not. It all depends on the taste of the listener, right? But if you want to play electronic music at parties or in clubs, you need to know that there are certain rules as to what works and what doesn’t. If you don’t know these rules yet, here they are:
If you want your audience to dance, you should play a combination of repetitive beats with high energy levels. Try and keep the energy levels up for longer periods of time (at least 30 minutes), even though you will be tempted to slow down after 20 minutes or so. If you do that, your audience will stop dancing and probably leave for another club where they can dance more. This does not mean that you should play the same song over and over again; it just means that you should match the energy levels of this song with other songs during your set. Also, try not to stop playing

There are many different styles of dj-ing, but when we hear the word dj, most people think of a party dj. This is a misconception, as there are different skill sets and goals for each type of dj. Here is a list of the most common types of djs and what their goals are:
Club Dj – The club dj plays at bars, clubs, or raves. They select music that will keep people dancing to the beat and have enough energy to keep the crowd going all night.
Wedding Dj – The wedding dj plays music at weddings or wedding receptions. They usually get requests from the bride and groom to play during certain parts of the day such as during dinner, when people are first arriving, or during special dances. These djs also make announcements throughout the day so everyone knows where they need to go when.
Mobile Dj – A mobile dj is similar to a wedding dj in that they play at events like weddings, but they also play at holiday parties, school dances, anniversaries, and more formal events like that.
Radio Dj – These djs play music on radio stations or podcasts. They usually play specific genres of music such as hip hop or rock and take listeners’ requests over the phone or internet.
The biggest problem with most DJ blogs is that they’re written almost entirely from the perspective of a DJ or by third-parties. You know, people who write about music rather than make it. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a time and place for both, but I’d like to think that someone who actually knows what it’s like to be a DJ can offer something different.
I’ve been DJing for more than five years now and I’ve learned a lot during that time. I’ve made mistakes, spent money on the wrong things and wasted hours of my life doing things that were completely unnecessary. But I picked up some great tips along the way too and it dawned on me recently that there are probably other DJs out there who want to know how to do things the right way…
I’m not going to pretend this blog is some kind of indispensable resource – far from it in fact – but I hope you might find something useful here…
I’m going to start this post off with a quote. “DJing is the art of selecting songs and videos that people have never heard before, but will like enough to dance to” – Andrew W.K.
I am going to tell you right now that if you want to become a Dj, there are no excuses. You don’t need fancy equipment or a record label or even a manager. All you need is good music, heart, and passion. What I am going to do here is try and show you the basics of DJing, so that you can get started on your own.
Before we begin I would like to explain what a dj actually does. In short, it’s basically just playing music for people in a club or at an event. There are many different types of Dj’s though, so I will briefly go over each one so that you know which one best suits your style and interest.
For those of you who want to learn djing, every weekend I will be posting a series of articles that will explain the technical aspects of DJing. By the end of the series you will be a professional DJ.
This article is about the different types of music that you can DJ with.
There are many types of music genres in the world and they are always changing. The main genre I am going to talk about is Electronic Music. This type of music has been around for many years but in recent years it has become much more popular. In this article I will talk about three different types of electronic music; House, Trance and Dubstep.
House music is a very popular style at parties, especially in nightclubs. It is a dance oriented form that has its roots in disco, funk and soul music. It started out in New York City where DJs would mix existing records together to create new sounds (hence the term mixing).
