Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

This is probably the most typical question for Denon DJ all beginner disc jockeys and referred to as a D.J. for short. The first thing to do is to do a little research. What type of D.J. would you want to be? There are various sorts of D.J.'s because they D.J. in various ways. The 3 Big types 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 road and do gigs at Faculties, private parties, Pioneer plx-1000 special occasions and the like. They use just about all sorts of disc jockey equipment such as karaoke equipment.

Mobile D.J.'s are entertainers also.

They get the audience involved with playing games with the music, singing, playing audio and other party favorites that involve entertaining the crowd.

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 audio 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 music and make it sound great that makes them stand out. That is the reason why they get paid the big bucks.

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

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

This takes time to develop but as soon as you have mastered this measure it allows you to explore new tunes 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 find a home in a number of clubs.

Fight D.J. or Turntablists

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

Beat juggling is if a D.J. is able to manipulate two records to the point where it seems like he is creating a new beat from two different ones. Since these skills are highly developed most combat D.J.'s can be a club D.J. or a mobile D.J. since the abilities cross all categories of disc jockeying.

When you know which sort of D.J. you wish to be you want to find out which type of equipment disc jockeys utilize.

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

How or Pioneer ddj-rz in what capacity will I be using my D.J. equipment (e.g. club D.J., Pioneer plx-1000 remixing( for parties)?
How much do I want to spend?
Where will I buy all of this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I really need?
Each one of these three types of disc jockeys I mentioned above uses the exact same D.J. equipment for the most part.

These are:

2 (2) turntables like the NumarkTTX1 Turntables
Two (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 headphones such as the Stanton Pro D.J. 3000 Headphones
