The Art of DJ-ing

People of this era certainly love to rave! To let loose on a space with strangers and end the night with a whole bunch of crowd as new friends as music ignite conversations and mutual grounds are found through the love of going to these kinds of event.  More than going through music fests, a lot of people actually do go because of the presence of their certain favorite DJs playing. And yes- the art of DJing has become more and more known throughout the years, up until now. Modern days of hip-hop took an influence on the modern-day scratching and since then, it has been an essential key to parties and events.

Two Things to Develop as an Amateur Dj

Mix. Learning the fundamental thing about the art of being a DJ is actually basically implied in the form of mixing songs. Mixing songs, need to start with learning how to layer numbers of songs, finding a ground rhythm to connect and interchange the beat, and making them sound and feel as one without no hint of transition whatsoever. This crucial step is also building how to hype up the crowd, which genres can hype the crowd, and effectively learning how to make your own style in the wide world of DJing with beginner friendly controllers.

Presence. The presence behind your deck will surely make up for exploring your style as an artist and giving of a trademark to people and how you want them to perceive you as their DJ. When starting, never go off as half-assed or all out. Try to stay within your comfort while slowly building tempo to go out little by little and harnessing whatever style and figure you want to become in the music scene. Always be between the type of DJs who run wild on stage and those who just look at their deck the whole time.
