#22

I just got a Poineer so I’m starting to learn how to DJ


#23

That’s not actually DJing.


#24

Yay! What Pioneer controller is it?


#25

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.


#27

Never done it before!

What’s it like?


#28

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

#35

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.


#36

300-400 is my usual/biggest crowd.


#37

Yeah! Reppin’ my OG DJs!

What do you play?


#38

Now - Techno and occasionally Deep House.
Then - Jungle.


#39

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…


#40

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:
