That’s not actually DJing.

Yay! What Pioneer controller is it?

I know, it’s just sometimes I’d like to imagine it is :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s not that easy to explain, but the main thing is being able to take your audience on a “Journey,” and being able to “Crowd Read.”

Taking your audience on a Journey means that you play songs that mean something, you should be able to tell a musical story through your music. A mix should contain ups and downs, happy and sad, slow and fast, and so on.

And, Crowd Reading has to do with looking at a crowd, and figuring out what songs to play. It’s a skill that takes a lot of time to obtain.

Lastly, yes, gear and transitions are kinda part of it, but it’s mostly the stuff I said.

Never done it before!

What’s it like?

It’s great. It’s the best feeling having a big crowd of people dancing to your mixes.

I’ve been DJing for about 20 years now…

I don’t play out often anymore, but record shopping remains one of my absolute favourite things to do.

Nice, that’s a pretty big crowd! I usually play for 50-100 people, but I’ve done a set in a club for 500-600 people twice as well, that was so cool…

That was beautiful.
I’d love to do some Jungle, but I’m from the south of the US, and they aren’t so open minded. :sob:
