Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

This is probably the most common question for all beginner disc jockeys or also known as a D.J. for short. The very first thing to do is to do a bit of research. Which kind of D.J. do you wish to be? There are different types of D.J.'s since they D.J. in different 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 the like. They use just about all sorts of disc jockey equipment such as karaoke equipment.

Mobile D.J.'s are entertainers also.

They get the crowd involved by playing games with all the songs, singing, playing audio and other celebration favorites that involve entertaining the crowd.

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

This permits the disc jockey to broadcast the music . A PA system consists of an amplifier and 2 speakers.

Club D. J.

It's the Club disc jockeys ability to perform many kinds of music and make it seem great that makes them stand out. That is 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 types 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 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 with the crowd" meaning that they have developed the ability to read the crowd and know what songs to perform based on audience response.

This takes some time to develop but as soon as you've mastered this step it permits you to explore fresh tunes 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 several clubs.

Battle D.J. or Turntablists

They're a particular group of highly skilled disc jockeys which do tricks using the turntables and mixer. Through the years of practice they have been able to develop their abilities of scratching, mixing 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 is producing a new defeat from two distinct ones. Since these skills are highly developed most battle D.J.'s can be a team D.J. or a mobile D.J. since the skills cross all types of disc jockeying.

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

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

How or in what capacity will I be using my D.J. equipment (e.g. club D.J., Alto Speakers remixing( for celebrations )?
How much do I want to invest?
Where will I purchase all of this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I actually need?
Every of these three types of disc jockeys that I mentioned above uses the same D.J. equipment for Denon DJ the most part.

These are:

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