If you answered "YES" to any of these questions, then I have some great news for you to hear! Listen, you're NOT alone. I've talked to many DJs and they can agree that they (and MYSELF) had these same questions and frustrations when first trying to know how to DJ..
I have knowledge of simple practices and exercises that will get you DJing within a few weeks or even a few days! These practices and exercises are what the top DJs, and record labels don't want people like you and I to know about. I know, kinda crummy, right? I started out over 5 years ago and I too had trouble mixing... I was broke as a joke, but still visioned myself becoming popular, making a lot of money, rockin' out to big crowds, meeting a BUNCH of beautiful ladies, and being know as "that guy" or "the DJ". YouTube and practicing everyday didn't get me anywhere. I was working hard with no benefit. I started to feel that I wasted the money I had spent on my DJ gear. I was close to giving up. On top of that, DJ lessons where expensive ($100 for a half an hour)! I couldn't afford that! I tried, but even the lessons wouldn't teach me enough without me breaking my bank. So I kept pushing on and practicing, knowing I'd get there one day. It took me 9 months to finally understand how to beatmatch and mix.
But even after I learned how to mix and beatmatch, it took me forever to get my first club gig. I started playing small house parties, then raves, I threw my own parties, got a club gig, and then finally got my first BIG club gig! In the back of my mind, I knew that there was always something more. I got to meet a lot of up and coming artists that were being trained by some of the top record labels and DJ schools in the world. These guys were learning secret techniques that easily got them mixing like a pro within weeks or days. I discovered that when a record label finds a new producer (the guy that makes the songs in a studio) the record label makes their money by getting that producer to tour as a DJ. DJs get paid a lot for gigs, thousands and thousands of dollars, and the record labels take a percentage of what the DJ / producer gets paid for each gig. So the sooner the record label can get the producer mixing like a pro, the sooner they make a TON of money. DJ schools know about these techniques but WON'T teach them to you. The longer it takes you to mix, the more lessons you take and the more money the schools make... To be honest...
I couldn't believe what I had spent a year learning, guys were doing in a few days or weeks. But, I was skeptical, so I started researching these secret practices, methodologies, and techniques myself. I had to know if they were real... Sure enough they were real... these secrets were no where to be found on online forums, Youtube, or the internet... Read this next part carefully.They are the practices, tips, and tricks about DJing, and they're based on a few principles... Also, note that I saved the best for last!
Know How To Mix Like A Pro... In order for a DJ to learn to mix like a pro in a few weeks, there are a 6 things that the DJ must understand. It is important to note: no matter how hard you work at "teaching yourself", failute to understand these 6 things will hurt your chances of ever living the DJ lifestyle that YOU desire... Here they are:
After new DJs finally get beatmatching down, they tend to try to jump into the advanced mixing techniques. However, they find that they cannot get these advanced techniques down... Here is why: Before you move on to advanced techniques, you need to master the basics. The basics include: Cuing, Dropping On The "One", Pitch Riding, Beatmatching, and a few other fundamental skills. Trying to learn different mixes or effects before you can beatmatch like a pro every time is like trying to build a skyscrapers floors before digging out and laying down the foundation. Lets be honest, it will be shaky and prone to failure! Understanding and mastering these fundamental skills are what allows the pro DJs your love to put together flawless mixes on the go, every time.
Don't be fooled by pro DJs like James Zabiela that use super complex effects units with scratching on 8 turntables... Your tricks don't need to be complicated to WOW people. With that being said, there are many easy tricks out there that really impress people! For example, here is a video that shows some simple tricks that you can use on a CDJ to make the dance floor go CRAZY:
The thing that all Pro DJs have locked down that amateur DJs don't is that their levels are TIGHT. The volume (level) of each of their tracks is perfect so the tracks blend together well. When an amateur is bringing in a new song, he or she will usually misjudge the volume of the song and will bring in the song too loud or too quiet. If a song is brought in too loud it is overpowering. If a song is brought in too quiet it kills the energy of the mix. The pros have their levels nailed perfectly and here is how they do it: Before you bring in the next song that you have beatmatched, throw it in to get it playing in your headphones. Once the song is playing listen to both songs at the same time in your headphones by choosing both channels using the headphone "cue" button or dial on your mixer. Now that you can hear both songs playing in your headphones, turn all of the EQs up on the song you are going to mix in, so it sounds normal. (When you mix a new song it is common to have one or all of the Bass, Mid or High EQs turned down so the certain parts of the new song, like a melody, won't clash with the song that is currently playing.) Put your headphones on both ears and simply switch back and forth between songs using the "cue" dial on your mixer. You can hear the first song and then the new song... then back to the current song that is playing out loud.. then back to the new song. Doing this and adjusting the "gain" knobs will get you're levels right and everyone listening will think you are a total pro!
"Trainspotting" is simply sitting behind or to the side of the DJ while he is mixing in the DJ Booth - watching every move the DJ makes. It's called "Trainspotting" because this is how DJs catch other DJs "Trainwrecking" - a mix that is made without correctly matching the beats and sounds like a train is crashing. Trainspotting is awesome because you can see how a DJ mixes their songs together. You can also see the little tricks the DJ does. It is a great way know the secretes on how to quickly DJ as you can go home and try the trick! The tricks that work for you and your mix can be kept, but remember: don't feel that you need to keep them all. I learned some of my best mixes and tricks this way. All by spending many hours watching other DJs...
I tried teaching myself by taking advice from Youtube and message forums when I was first starting out DJing. There weren't any good books on DJing. DJ lessons were stupid expensive. There weren't any DVDs... And I didn't have any DJ friends to teach me DJing.... I kept pushing though and finally taught myself. It took me about 2 year to learn everything about DJing... precious time that I could have been using to get gigs and making money if I had a better system.. The great news is that learning to DJ is A LOT easier today...you now have access to all sorts of different resources... and the best resource is having an experienced DJ friend to teach you everything. Think about that though... A pro DJ can show you how to mix like a pro because he already knows how to! So my top tip is to go out, right now and find a DJ in your city that is willing to teach you how to mix. Watch him mix. Ask him questions and let him show you his DJ tricks... This is the fastest and most fun way to learn. Remember, it is essential to find a pro DJ to mentor you. The only problem is that finding a pro DJ to mentor you can be very tough as they are so busy! This is why...
In my 6 years of DJing, it has become apparent to me that new DJs are often confused about what it takes to become an awesome DJ. Trust me, I've been there. No money, no DJ friends, no girls, old DJ gear, and I was lost when it came to knowing how to mix like a pro. Beatmatching and mixing was so frustrating... So many times I felt like giving up, but I kept pushing - keeping my vision of being a super star DJ in my mind as motivation... and I am sure glad that I did. Since learning how to mix, I have played 234 gigs in total and played at most of the major clubs, raves, and parties in my city!
