Being A Disc Jockey?

Being A Disc Jockey?

This is probably 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. Which type of D.J. do you wish to be? There are different types of D.J.'s because they D.J. in various ways. The three major 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 street and do gigs at Faculties, Pioneer ddj-rz private parties, special occasions and so on. 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 by playing games with all the songs, 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 allows the disc jockey to broadcast the audio . A PA system is composed of an amplifier and two speakers.

Club D. J.

It is the Club disc jockeys ability to perform various types of music and make it sound good that makes them stand out. That's why they get paid the big bucks.

To most it isn't a puzzle why the club disc jockey is the most sought after D.J.. Among my favorite club disc jockeys that cross all categories of disc jockeying is D.J. Cash Money from Philadelphia, PA.. He has some of the fastest hands on the faders and turntables I have ever observed.

For their music many club disc jockeys utilize Technics SL-1200/1210 Turntables. You Can now locate bar D.J.'s using Final Scratch by Stanton or Serato Scratch Live by Rane. Club D.J.'s"play with the audience" meaning they have developed the ability to read the audience and know what songs to perform based on audience response.

This takes some time to develop but as soon as you have mastered this step it allows you to explore fresh songs in the club that you may not otherwise play as a result of inexperience. This is a superb way to create a livelihood if you can get 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 the years of training they have been in a position to develop their abilities of scratching, Pioneer ddj-rz blending and above all beat juggling.

Beat juggling is when a D.J. is able to manipulate two records to the point at which it seems like he's creating a new beat from two distinct ones. Because these skills are highly developed most battle D.J.'s can be a club D.J. or a mobile D.J. since the skills cross all categories of disc jockeying.

When you know what sort of D.J. you wish to be you want to learn what type of equipment disc jockeys utilize.

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

Just how or in what capacity will I be using my D.J. equipment (e.g. club D.J., remixing, for Traktor Kontrol S4 parties)?
How much do I want to invest?
Where will I buy all of this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I actually need?
Every of these three kinds of disc jockeys that I mentioned above utilizes the same D.J. equipment for the most part.

These are:

2 (2) turntables like the NumarkTTX1 Turntables
2 (2) slipmats
Two (2) cartridges like the Shure M44 7 mounted on a Technics Headshell
One (1) mixer like the Rane TTM56 (Mixers)
One (1) set of cans such as the Stanton Pro D.J. 3000 Headphones
