Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

This is possibly the most common question for all newcomer disc jockeys or also referred to as a D.J. for short. The very first thing to do is to do a little research. What kind of D.J. do you want to be? There are different types of D.J.'s since they D.J. in various 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 Universities, private parties, special events 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 audience involved with playing games with the songs, singing, playing music and other celebration favorites which involve entertaining the audience.

Mobile D.J.'s usually possess a disc jockey PA system that they bring with them to the gig.

This allows the disc jockey to broadcast the audio being played. A PA system is composed of an amplifier and two Alto Speakers.

Club D. J.

It's the Club disc jockeys capacity to perform many types of music and make it sound good that makes them stand out. That's 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.. Among my favourite club disc jockeys that cross all categories of disc jockeying is D.J. Cash Money from Philadelphia, PA.. He has some of the quickest hands on the faders and turntables that I have ever observed.

For their music 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 audience" meaning they have developed the ability to read the audience and understand what songs to perform based on crowd response.

This takes time to develop but once you have mastered this measure it permits you to explore fresh tunes in the club which you may not otherwise play due to inexperience. This is a superb way to create a livelihood if you are able to find a home in a number of clubs.

Battle D.J. or Turntablists

They are a particular group of highly skilled disc jockeys which do tricks with the turntables and mixer. Through years of training they've been in a position to develop their abilities of scratching, blending and above all beat juggling.

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

When you know what type of D.J. you want to be you need to find out what type of equipment disc jockeys use.

The 4 questions any fresh disc jockey must ask before Purchasing any new equipment are:

How or Pioneer xdj 1000 in what capacity will I be using my D.J. equipment (e.g. club D.J., remixing( for celebrations )?
How much do I wish to invest?
Where will I buy all this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I actually need?
Every of these 3 kinds of disc jockeys that I mentioned above utilizes the same D.J. equipment for the most part.

These are:

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