Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

This is probably the most common question for all beginner disc jockeys and known as a D.J. for short. The first thing to do would be to do a bit of research. Which type of D.J. do you wish to be? There are different types of D.J.'s because they D.J. in different ways. The three 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 almost 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 songs, Pioneer xdj 1000 singing, Alto Speakers playing music along with other party favorites which involve entertaining the audience.

Mobile D.J.'s generally possess a disc jockey PA system that 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 is the Club disc jockeys ability 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 types of disc jockeying is D.J. Cash Money out of Philadelphia, PA.. He has some of the quickest hands on the faders and turntables that I have ever observed.

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

This takes time to develop but once you have mastered this measure it permits you to explore new songs in the club which you may not otherwise play as a result of inexperience. This is a superb way to create a livelihood if you can get a home in a number of clubs.

Battle D.J. or Turntablists

They're a special group of highly skilled disc jockeys which do tricks using the turntables and mixer. Through years of practice they have been able to develop their skills of scratching, mixing and above all beat juggling.

Beat juggling is if a D.J. is able to manipulate two records to the point where it sounds like he is creating a new beat from two different ones. Since these skills are highly improved most battle D.J.'s could be a club D.J. or a cellular D.J. since the skills cross all types of disc jockeying.

After you know which type of D.J. you wish to be you want to find out what kind of equipment disc jockeys use.

The 4 questions any new disc jockey should ask before buying any new equipment are:

Just how or in what capacity will I be using my D.J. equipment (e.g. club D.J., remixing, Pioneer ddj-rz for celebrations )?
How much do I wish to spend?
Where will I purchase all of this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I really need?
Each one of these 3 kinds of disc jockeys I mentioned above utilizes the same D.J. equipment for the large part.

These are:

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