Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

This is possibly the most common question for all beginner disc jockeys and Pioneer DJ referred to as a D.J. for short. The very first thing to do would be to do a little research. Which kind of D.J. would you want to be? There are various sorts of D.J.'s since they D.J. in various ways. The 3 Big 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 road and do gigs at Faculties, private parties, special occasions and Pioneer xdj 1000 so on. They use almost 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 and Traktor Kontrol S8 other celebration favorites which involve entertaining the audience.

Mobile D.J.'s generally possess 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 songs and make it seem great that makes them stand out. That is the reason 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 out of Philadelphia, PA.. He has some of the fastest hands on the faders and turntables that I have ever seen.

For their songs many club disc jockeys use 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 the audience" meaning they have developed the ability to read the crowd and know what tunes to perform based on crowd response.

This takes some time to develop but once you've mastered this step it permits you to explore new songs in the club that you might not otherwise play due to inexperience. This is a superb way to make a livelihood if you can find a home in several clubs.

Battle D.J. or Turntablists

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

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

After you know which sort of D.J. you want to be you want to find out which type of equipment disc jockeys use.

The 4 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 Denon DJ celebrations )?
Just how much do I want to spend?
Where will I buy all of this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I actually need?
Each one of these three types of disc jockeys I mentioned above uses the same D.J. equipment for the most part.

These are:

Two (2) turntables like the NumarkTTX1 Turntables
Two (2) slipmats
2 (2) cartridges like the Shure M44 7 mounted on a Technics Headshell
One (1) mixer such as the Rane TTM56 (Mixers)
