Being A Disc Jockey?

Being A Disc Jockey?

This is possibly the most common question for all beginner disc jockeys or also known as a D.J. for short. The first thing to do would be to do a little research. Which type of D.J. do you want to be? There are different types of D.J.'s since they D.J. in various ways. The 3 major types of D.J.'s are:

Mobile D.J./ Mobile Entertainer
Club D.J.
Fight D.J.
Mobile D. J.

They take their equipment on the street and do gigs at Faculties, private parties, special events and the like. They use just about all types of disc jockey equipment including karaoke equipment.

Mobile D.J.'s are entertainers also.

They get the audience involved with playing games with the music, singing, playing music along with other celebration favorites which involve entertaining the crowd.

Mobile D.J.'s generally have a disc jockey PA system they bring with them to the gig.

This permits the disc jockey to broadcast the music being played. A PA system is composed of an amplifier and 2 Alto Speakers.

Club D. J.

It's the Club disc jockeys capacity to play various kinds of songs and make it seem good that makes them stand out. That's why they get paid the big bucks.

To most it is not a mystery why the club disc jockey is the most sought after D.J.. One of my favorite 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 Traktor Kontrol S4 their songs most club disc jockeys utilize 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 crowd and know what tunes to perform based on audience response.

This takes some time to develop but once you have mastered this measure it allows you to explore fresh tunes in the club that you might not otherwise play as a result of inexperience. This is a great way to make a livelihood if you can find a home in a number of clubs.

Fight D.J. or Turntablists

They're a particular group of highly skilled disc jockeys that do tricks using the turntables and mixer. Through years of training they have been able to develop their abilities of scratching, blending and most importantly beat juggling.

Beat juggling is when a D.J. is able to manipulate two documents to the point at which it seems like he's creating one new defeat from two distinct ones. Since these skills are highly improved most battle D.J.'s can be a team D.J. or a cellular D.J. because the abilities cross all categories of disc jockeying.

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

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

How or in what capacity will I be using my D.J. equipment (e.g. club D.J., remixing( for Pioneer ddj-sx3 celebrations )?
Just how much do I want to invest?
Where will I purchase all of this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I really need?
Every of these 3 types of disc jockeys that I mentioned above uses the exact same D.J. equipment for the most part.

These are:

Two (2) turntables like the NumarkTTX1 Turntables
2 (2) slipmats
2 (2) cartridges like 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
