birthday in Durban  She wanted a hippy/ disco themed birthday party at our home  and we needed a good DJ for the job  As we have recently moved back to Durban after 6 years in the UK  we did not know any local DJs and searched the web to find someone suitable  We liked the looked of DJ Devan website  and e-mailed him for a quote Within a few minutes he had emailed us back with a favourable quote and we arranged to meet to plan the birthday party During our meeting  DJ Devan discussed the party plan with us  as well as suggest the best possible setup etcmOn the day of the party DJ Devan and his assistant Kuben arrived well in time to set up their equipment laser lights and smoke machine When the children arrived everything was in place and looked fantastic and DJ Devan got the party started straight away  To say that I have never seen 12 year olds have so much fun at a party would be an understatement  Everyone joined in the dancing, there was even a special dance for my daughter with her Daddy  DJ Devan had the children shouting clapping  dancing and singing  and also had everyone joining in games like a Vuvuzela  blowing competition  etc Later on he handed the microphone around to everyone who wanted to wish my daughter a happy birthday which was really special  This was by far the best party she  ever had  and parents had to drag their children of the dancefloor by the end of the evening I can highly recommend DJ Devan for any occasion he is friendly professional  and really knows how to get everyone dancing and enjoying themselves He made my daughter feel like a princess for the evening and we are already thinking of more family parties Devan can host for us Thank you DJ Devan for an unforgettable evening  a fantastic time was had by all Warmest Wishes

7661 OR mail me djdevan Party congratulations  You have booked the venue, the photographer  the caterer  your outfit for that special day fits you perfectly fine and all you need to do is book the DJ and MC  I dont want to scare you,but this could be one of the most important decisions that u will make during the planning of your function and the success thereof could depend on this decision  Therefore the choice of the DJ and MC should not be taken lightly  Here are a few tips i would like you to keep in mind when you are booking a MC and DJ for your function MAKE SURE YOUR DJ UNDERSTANDS WHAT IS EXPECTED OF HIM AND WHAT THE FUNCTION ENTAILS CHECK REFERENCES FIND OUT ABOUT THE MUSIC COLLECTION FIND OUT ABOUT THE QUALITY OF THE SOUND FIND OUT WHETHER THE DJ USES TRADITIONAL CD PLAYERS OR THE DJ PLAYS MUSIC FROM THE LAP TOP  I FIND THAT DJS WHO PLAY FROM THE LAP TOPS HAVE NO VIBE AND THEY ARE NOT INTERACTIVE NOTHING CAN BEAT THE DJ PLAYING LIVE AND MIXING MUSIC ON PROFESSIONAL CD PLAYERS AND A MIXER FIND OUT WHETHER THE DJ USES THE MICROPHONE THERE ARE IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS TO BE MADE AT EVERY FUNCTION A DJ does not just change CDs  A Dj has to create vibe excitement and love what he does  He needs to be passionate about what he is doing The music selection has to vary  At every function whether its a wedding or birthday party  there are young and old guests The Dj needs to cater for all music tastes  CONDUCT A DJ is a working service provider at your function  He needs to be neatly dressed an he must not have too many friends that he brings along  I once went to a wedding where the Dj had a track pants and cap He also had about 6 assistants with him When dinner was served  the DJ and his assistants were the first to sit down an eat This was so unprofessional  After supper i went to chat with the DJ and he said to me that he did not charge any money to do the function  He is a family friend  So im sure you dont want this to happen at your function THE FOLLOWING IS A LIST OF IMPORTED STUFF FOR SALE DJ TSHIRTS PRO DJ CAPS dJ INSTRUCTIONAL DVD LEARN TO DJ BOOK SECOND HAND VINYL AND CD LEARN TO SCRATCH DVD ORIGINAL CdS WITH 12 TRACKS OVER

Gear  Sound Systems  Club Lighting  Studio Gear  DJ Music Production training facilities and Gear Rentals   DJ Mix Club was established back in 1998 as an official Technics DJ School and was the first DJ School set up in South Africa  When we kicked things off we ran the DJ school out the back of a record store in Blairgowrie before taking over the entire business in 2003  We introduced a new DJ store business model and began to run things our own unique way with the emphasis on importing the latest 12  records from the UK  USA  Germany and Holland  in addition to retailing the hottest DJ equipment out at the time  The DJ Mix Club still imports the formidable range of Technics headphones  Selected turntables are still available from our store however we have progressed to selling more CD players and DJ MIDI controllers than turntables now a days  Since 98 the DJ Mix Club has trained over 4000 students at our store and our DJ Courses and methods have also been integrated into courses for training in tertiary institutions Selected institutions such as Damelin and Allenby as well as prestigious High Schools like Hilton College and St Stithians have requested our services whereby we have run tailored DJ short courses for their students   The DJ Mix Club has crowned multiple national DJ champions in the SA  Battle of the DJ s competition  which started back in 1985  the likes of Ready D DJ Dizzy  Dean  and Nelson  Afroboogie  and given rise to a host of successful DJ s including Shane Halcon  First State  and Paul Bingham  With the digital music transition making broad changes in the way DJ s are learning to play  DJ Mix Club teamed up with Denon DJ in 2011 to put together a digital DJ course using Denon and other popular gear to train students into alternate ways to play their gigs  To this day we still start all new students off on the good old Technics SL before we move them onto CDJ s or controllers to give them a feel of what all the other gear is more or less based on DJ Mix Club have also recently struck up a deal with Native Instruments to provide specialist Traktor DJ courses to educate all of its users out there as to the capabilities of its industry standard DJ software  DJ Mix Club was also one of the few schools to delve into Music Production training as we always felt that production was the next logical step after learning to DJ  Currently we run a 1 Year part-time course weaving together DJing  Music Production and Marketing training as well as 2 month part time specialist courses in Propellerheads Reason or Ableton Live  We are one of the last surviving record and gear stores in South Africa and we can attribute that success to our passionate staff  numerous involvements in the electronic music scene and our multi pillared business model encompassing training  online and physical retail stores and gear rentals  The original mission statement of DJ Mix Club was to be a store that catered for all aspects of DJ Culture  from the training one would receive  the equipment one would need  the music necessary to entertain  to most importantly  the knowledge and inspiration one would need to acquire to sustain one s DJing  whether it be at home  or in the throngs of a club or event  The emphasis for DJ Mix Club has always been on personal relationships and that combined with a concise knowledge of the product  would in itself lead to good service  A friend  after all  will never let you down rip you off or give you bad advice  And that is one of the reasons that the DJ Mix Club brand has been so successful   we always have time for our friends  Our services include not just selling you a box  our specialised in store staff will advise you correctly and assist you through the set up process to make sure you as our customer are satisfied with your important purchase  Pricing on products at DJ Mix Club is the most competitive in the industry  we will beat any written quote within reason and

Playing at a birthday party in some seedy bar a while back I gave up DJing at 14 when a lad from the next town borrowed my very first mixer to play electro and practise breakdancing with his mates Until then Id been risking bollockings from my dad for cueing up tunes on my beltdrive turntable to compile mixtapes that didnt miss a beat or and I kid you not physically editing cassette tapes by cutting the tape on the diagonal and splicing it together with Sellotape just to cut the talking out of the top 40 Yes you could say I was born with an innate desire to mess with the music I was playing and to play it to as many people as I could find whod listen Bedroom door open or shut when playing pop music as a teenager No contest Wide open At 17 when most of my mates were listening to

festival in So Paulo in June many observers wondered  just how difficult is it to DJ really Not at all according to outspoken dance music producer Deadmau5 real name Joel Zimmerman It takes two days to learn as long as you can count to four Zimmerman told Rolling Stone I took on the challenge to see if I could learn to DJ  in one hour Full list The Worlds HighestPaid DJs   The Worlds HighestPaid

TopEarning DJ   Scratch DJ Academy hopes to teach anyone how to spin The brain child of former businessman-turnedmusicenthusiast Rob Principe the academy began when Principe successfully pitched his idea for a DJ school to legendary RunDMC DJ Jam Master Jay in the green room at the Late Show with David Letterman Despite DJs being ubiquitous in our culture there was no onramp to the art form explained Principe cofounder and CEO of Scratch DJ Academy The equipment was expensive and confusing and the demand to learn outweighed any supply of teachers Jam Master Jay soon jumped onboard as a cofounder and instructor at the New York academy A decade later close to 15000 students a year nationwide fork out an average of 350 per sixweek program the most popular of which is a DJ 101 course that covers basic scratching mixing and the use of prominent industry technologies like Serato software A certification course which can take over a year to complete and aims to produce clubready DJs costs just under 2000 DJ Noms a teacher with 17 years DJing experience introduced me to a 3000 deck consisting of two turntables a mixer and a laptop Place your hand at the 9 oclock position and all youre going to do is start to push forward and back instructed DJ Noms Performing this motion every quarter beat created a scratching sound known as the baby scratch That simple movement is the foundation for everything related to DJing said Noms DJs use baby scratches to move tracks so they release on time with another and build upon this basic scratch to create more complicated turntable sounds In the first five minutes of the class  an hourlong session that retails for between 80150  I nailed the baby scratch From there I counted to four a little faster and mastered a scribble scratch  a doubletime version of the baby scratch  and a drag which is a half time count DJ Noms then showed me a slider on the mixer known as a cross fader which can be used to flip back and forth four times a beat between turntables to create a percussive sound known as a transformer scratchAfter 30 seconds of trying I had the transformer scratch down Zimmerman number six on our list of highest earning DJs recently criticized several of his peers for buttonpushing during live shows With the increase in ease afforded by technologies like Ableton and Virtual DJ which can be used to queue and sync tracks Zimmerman claimed several DJproducers rely on prerecorded tracks rather than recreating their music during socalled live sets DJ Noms estimated that about half the working DJs in New York city use just mixers and their laptops while the rest rely on a combination of turntables and Serato technology a mockvinyl software that lets DJs manipulate mp3 files on their laptop while using turntables as a control interface There are even iPhone apps such as djay which let users mix tracks directly from the iTunes library A popular Android version called DJ Studio 3 had over 232000 downloads in June alone Serato makes mixing simpler by queuing up two songs of the DJs choice When an icon on the display goes green the DJ has to release a track on time with the other song Then the DJ just has to turn down the bass and fade out the initial track If you get this  quit Im running out of the building Noms joked Sure enough less than half an hour into the lesson  completed my first

 As a professional DJ unfortunately Im not into being a wasted fool on TV so I dont get paid the big bucks of celeb DJs I take offense to this article Sure Serato makes DJing easier and youre right if you want to be a button pusher sync up your set without learning to read the crowd and preplan everything then yes you can be that DJ in a day and that would probably be your last day as a DJ since no one would ever hire you back However just because you learn the basics does not make you a DJ as you added in at the last minute And it might let you mix two songs together but youll never be a DJ until you learn the actual skill of listening to the cadences of a song crowd reading selection blending mixing timing beat matching by ear not by a green blip on a machine BPMs getting people to let go of their daily stresses and dance their asses off while introducing them to real music and to have respect for those that came before you Scratch LA teaches you on vinyl first before teaching you on Serato and I think that is the way to go So many DJs out there have no respect for the history and true art form of DJing I have worked my butt off for 13 years to put in hard work and taught myself the true skill of DJing working crazy gigs seeing some crazy stuff and hauling heavy ass equipment all by my 100 lb self up flights and flights of stairs yes I play vinyl and they are HEAVY We didnt have DJ academies back then and they still dont in most of the country what are you saying to those kids Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash didnt learn on Serato and they sure as hell couldnt afford brand new equipment when they were starting out They took what they had and made a whole genre of music with it changing the music landscape for decades pass the original trend that everyone thought hiphop was going to be Just because you can learn how to snowboard in one day that doesnt make you a professional snowboarder It takes years of practice and skill and training and mistakes and failures to get there Im glad that you decided to actually to do this yourself and report your experience It sounds like you may have a talent you didnt know you had and I hope you had fun We can always use more female DJs But I hope that you also know that this is just an intro into what it takes to be a DJ Reply  Samantha Diaz Samantha Diaz  8 months ago  As a professional DJ unfortunately

like traktor serato etc probably the most basic skill a dj needs to know such a missguided miss informed article that seems to have come from someone looking down their nose poking fun at the

Reply  jack motel jack motel  8 months ago  Put them in front of turntables the machines that play thin black vinyl discs with small grooves with music they havent heard before and beatmix in one take That separates the men from the boys  As far as button pushing is concerned I think that the interaction the DJ has with their equipment should be more on show big screen  or DJ is more in the crowd like a guitarist or drummer  That way we can watch the craftsmanship of the musician interacting with their instrument Reply  Phillip Arzola Phillip Arzola  8 months ago  Natalie please stick to your studies at Columbia and whatever it is you write on for Forbes but stay the HELL out of things you do not understand Honestly I cant remember the last time I came across an article with such a lack of research and onesided facts that can be easily warped into a 1step guide on how to DJ You learned to scratch a little did a transition into a new song from another made your first Professional mix Oh my god Youd better get yourself ready to travel around the world if its so easy to become a DJ right First off your little professional mix might be considered so if it features a mixing of two songs together in the smallest form of the word but I bet youre not rushing off to show a club manager that mix or anyone else for that matter because you know it is a mere nothingYou seem to fail to mention in the first place that the DJs you have mentioned are mainly PRODUCERS and do both jobs of making the music and performing it live Your number one source of information for the dynamics of DJing is Deadmau5a guy who has even stated himself that he is not a DJ but rather a producer If you did your homework you will see that he is in fact more about the production of his sound rather than what to mix on a turntable Im really not surprised in the first place that Forbes would get something like this wrong on its first attempt and if I had to guess I would say theyyou thought you would be a good choice to write this because you are a college student so you must know alllll about the music riiight but in reality you just gathered some easytofind shallow facts from Google when you typed in DJ in the search bar and took a oneday scratching lesson Next time really take the time to make your articles sound like a Columbia student wrote them not some amateur trying to be a knowitall Thanks Reply   Erik Gustafson Erik Gustafson  8 months ago  HAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA is all I got to say How weak You should stick to writing but you suck at that also Isnt there another fad

unclecousinbrother work there also Reply George Potoff George Potoff  8 months ago  You should also learn than vs then and that youre only scratching the surface of a particular kind of djing HipHop djing which calls for scratching Theres an art to djing house disco techno etc that relies on other abilities which call to question the ear of the mixer Deep house music infused with disco and techno elements is the way Reply  Frank H Frank H  8 months ago  This is pure ignorance First of all the majority of big name EDM like Deadmau5 or Skrillex are producers first and foremost The term DJ is extremely convoluted and misused Using software such as Ableton Reason Pro Tools Logic Que Base I could go on all day to produce EDM takes years to master Your description of learning how to make a professional mix in one day is a joke From the sound of it you learned a few basic scratches and the very basic fundamentals of Serato Scratching has very little to do with mixing and it is simply the stereotypical notion most idiots like yourself think of when they imagine the skills needed to be a DJ Try learning to produce a professional EDM track in a day not going to happen Try taking your day of training into a club and see how professional your dog and pony show of a mix really is Deadmau5 can talk shit about DJs all he wants because hes earned that right to You on the other hand need to take your foot out of your a and shove it in your mouth where it belongs I dont know how you got this gig but do a little more fact checking before you trash talk a very complex and taxing art form

months ago Thanks for your comments Frank and Phillip Deadmau5 and Skrillex are certainly producers and I know being a producer isnt the same as being a DJ That being said every member of our HighestPaid list earns money from DJing in some capacity The terms are often confused which is why we titled the package Electronic Cash Kings This article came from a lesson on how to DJ not on how to produce  Id certainly need to take several other classes to do that Id also need hours of practise before I would dare set foot in a club as I note the Scratch certification course which aims to produce clubready DJs takes over a year to complete In this article I acknowledge that being a DJ takes a whole lot more than just pressing play or scratching requiring the incredible ability to read a crowd I did not aim to denigrate the art of DJing  in fact I have an incredible amount of respect for all genres of DJs  but merely tried to offer an insight into a world an increasing number of people are interested in Thanks for reading Calledout comment Reply expand comment joe neptune joe neptune  2 weeks ago  well most djs out there are FAKE THEY USE GHOST PRODUCERS ALL LIERS I MEAN 50

Vicky Nimbalkar  8 months ago  A good article An easiest way to start learning Djing I remember the days when Ive learned this counting to 4 technique while beatmatching I must admit the concept of djing seems easy but actual mastering it is hard Also beyond just mastering it is making an art of it and being individual and different is the hardest part Learning to count beats is just 1 of Djing but using this counting for looping beatmatching cutting takes lot of practice and hard work which newbie DJs doesnt understand and end up paying huge fees to learn Djing but do nothing for years Besides learning Djing techniques a sense of understanding music is too important if you are serious about Djing Reply  Níel Scobie Níel Scobie  8 months ago  How to be a rock star in 3 easy steps

Anon  8 months ago  First and foremost I would have to agree with a majority of the comments posted in regards to some of the misinformation presented in this article I know that some people have responded with anger to the authors views on this subject so there is no need for me to do so I will say that as a newcomer to the DJ culture there were plenty of things that I thought would be easy and that I would be able to pick this up with no problem Boy was I wroAs a graduate of the academys program there is definitely nothing easy about djing I attended the NYC school as a total beginner and at one point I had to ask myself if this was something I could keep up with The instructors there are djs that have studied their craft and dedicated years and years of time to perfect it Ask any one of them and they will tell you that they still have much more to learn In no way did any of them make this look easy I started off on vinyl for my first 12 weeks of classes and as much as I wanted to go digital my instructors insisted that I learn the roots of this first There is a talent that goes into playing vinyl There is a skill that cannot be picked up over night Even with classes I still had to put in at least 2 hours of practice on a daily basis  and that was without having my own equipment  Each class I attended the instructors followed a very detailed and extensive curriculum on basic music theory beatmatching scratching song selection song structure EQ mixing transitions equipment maintenance and repair while always adding in 1 the importance of vinyl and how it has shaped this culture 2 how djs have learned to embrace technology but DO NOT rely on it to do the work for them and 3 regardless of what current  trends are out there this is an art form that has seen many changes and will require much more than a ipod playlist to do this It takes an extreme amount of patience and diligence For some it does come natural  but by far something you can get down in 30 seconds One of the many things that I have learned from all of this is that DJs take this seriously Its a way of life Regardless of the misinformation written in this article I am somewhat pleased to see the dj culture given some sort of recognition Articles like this not only draws peoples attention to the artform even more but it also pushes the passionate ones to speak up and correct any misguided views of this culture Reply  expand comment Anon Anon 8 months ago  For some it does come natural  but by far something you can get down in 30 seconds EDIT Meant to say by far something you CANT get down in 30 seconds Reply  expand 7 comments Luigi Limongi Luigi Limongi  7 months ago  Hey there Natalie this is mexican dj Luigi Limongi and i have to tell you that this class you took whit this people isnt a djing or a mixing class it was a turntablism class and i sincerely doubt that anybody can spin Djing isnt as easy as counting to 4 thats a terrible mistake if anyone can dj why Paris Hilton cant cause ive seen the videos in youtube and that wasnt djing at all that was a joke that was ridiculous and anybody can call that woman DJ Reply  Edgar Hoe Edgar Hoe 5 months ago  this

 Steven Kutsch Steven Kutsch  2 months ago  This has to be the worst article i have ever read on Forbes i want to hear you play a set Record something put it up and then name your article how hard is it to DJ Count to four This article is offensive to anyone putting in time in the art Quote ATrak or anyone who actually Djs during their set Deadmau5 is known for his producing definitely not for his turntablism I wanna hear some of your transforming that you apparently have down So instead of writing an article like this putting a bad name to Djs Put something up so everyone can see how good you really are Untill then your article just sounds like someone who is in high school rambaling not knowing at all what their talking about Reply  B?azej Gorniak B?azej Gorniak  2 months ago  This article is so terribly horrifyingly researched it left me breathless It is terrifying that such a serious media outlet would publish a text that gets almost none of its facts correct except perhaps where are the mentioned DJ schools based  It saddens me that Forbes readers will take it at face value and actually believe that one can for example learn the transformer scratch in 30 seconds I have been scratching for more that 6 years now I live the artform every day of my life and reading your article I would actually wish that what devote my life to would stay out of any mainstream media lest it be so wrongly presented Please stop writing Reply  Jeff Tharp Jeff Tharp  4 days ago  Back up learning how to transform with a youtube video please  Reply  Follow Comments Most Read on Forbes

suspended over the swimming pool Personally  our DJ careers and seminal club night took us all over our city  and to London  Edinburgh Dublin  Ibiza  We span many happy times at U2 s The Kitchen  and played from a DJ booth suspended over the swimming pool of Privilege the biggest club in the world We guested on radio stations from the local pirates to Ministry of Sound I wrote a set of articles for IDJ magazine on club promoting that became one of their most popular series of all time We headlined in front of 10 000 at our citys biggest open air festival ever And of course as all living the life DJs do  we played countless  truly countless  grubby kitchens in student houses and squats always for free  always until someone kicked us off the decks As well as DJing we learned business and promoting  never letting a minute go underused and turning every corner strong and with our heads high  It felt like a film  I wouldnt change a second of it even if I could New life new ways to play Faye  Jackie Wife Faye left and friend Jackie at the silent disco Benicassim Spain 06 I was holding the camera not DJing In 2006 22 years after that lad nicked my first mixer I upped sticks to get married and take up a career in writing and marketing in southern Europe working at cool web agency on the Mediterranean coast of Spain promoting lowkey sunset nights in beach bars and playing at hardto-find private parties and events Only taking a rucksack and a suitcase with me my music was all painstakingly ripped to laptop and indeed the last six months of my Manchester club DJing life I played exclusively from a cheap Fujitsu-Siemens and a copy of Virtual DJ at a time when even CD decks were still seen as cheating in some peoples eyes I on the other hand saw the potential of digital DJing straight away embracing it before anyone else I knew even those superstar DJs who regularly played our club Fast forward to now and iTunes a DJ controller and a MacBook is to me quite simply what DJing is all about  and as Editor of Digital DJ Tips Im proud to be right at the heart of it The world of DJing today  post superstar DJ post vinyl post genre snobbery  is very different to when I started Its a world where DJs and bands not only dont see any conflict with each other theyre often the same people A world where a dance party can go off in a beach bar or lounge as easily as in a

as weddings or small parties A music specialist sticks to a particular genre of music regardless of what the crowd demands Usually these DJs play nightclubs who have specific genre standards or they have an established following based on a certain type of music Know what you need If you plan to play for a venue that already has a DJ setup you might only need a laptop with music mixing software Some music mixing software may be hard to learn but there are some people who love to use dubstep software If you plan to play in  Start with the basics A basic DJ setup includes two turntables or two CD players headphones and a mixer Later on you can invest in speakers a monitor a MIDI controller an audio interface a mic and various plugins Augment your performance with software These programs will enable you to access a library of MP3s on your hard drive to compliment your vinyl and CD selections  More often than not these programs provide live looping and scratching capability delays and reverbs real time control and video and karaoke options Dont forget your home studio Most DJs record demos  playlists and original music at home Make sure the equipment you bring to the club compliments the equipment you use at home For example if youre a hip hop DJ youll probably want to invest in a scratchbattle mixer at home to simulate a competition environment Be economical Dont invest in topdollar equipment right away Most of your money should be spent on turntables and a mixer Forget the other stuff for now And spend wisely Buy your decks used and your mixer new Learn the Craft Observe Find a DJ whose style you admire and observe him or her as much as possible Pay attention to how songs are constructed and how the crowd is managed After youve watched them a few times approach the DJ after the show and ask for a few tips Most DJs will be happy to help guide you if they know youre serious Gain inspiration from the DJs that hit it big Sometimes it can help to look up to professionals such as Tiesto Avicii,Knife Party,Sebastian Ingrosso etc Get some inspiration Learn to mix beats Beat mixing involves maintaining a constant beat while moving from one song to another  and can be done with varying degrees of complexity  Some DJs pre record mixes at home while others mix beats live Either way the goal is keeping the music constant so that dancers can keep going without a pause Know the BPM of your songs The beats per minute BPM of a song will determine how smoothly or easily you can mix it with another song You can calculate BPM by counting the beats yourself and using a stopwatch Some mixers will have a BPM counter on the board Learn the intros and outros Most dance songs will have an intro in which the music is going but the vocals are not at the beginning of the song and a corresponding outro at the end Mixing usually means blending one songs intro with the outro of another Knowing when an outro starts and an intro begins is critical to live beat mixing Cue up the second song Have your second song ready to go as your first one is winding down Use one hand on the turntable or CD players pitch to adjust speed if your BPMs dont match and put the other on the crossfader so that the first songs volume decreases as the second songs volume increases Keep it simple at first When youre starting out make mixing easier by sticking to two songs that are within 3 BPMs of each other You can also use two songs that are in the same key Learn about all genres of music Often you may know of a couple hit songs in a few genres but that is not enough You need to be a music expert  Heres a list of genres to explore Progressive Breakbeat Hardcore Downtempo Dubstep Drum and Bass Jungle Hip Hop There are many more try searching the internet for similar genres if you enjoy any particular one Start Performing Find a gig Depending on how you want to advance your career you could start playing small private events for a low fee or take a slow weeknight shift at a club or bar Ask a friend whos hosting a party if you can DJ Be aware that if youre inexperienced you wont make much money at first and youll probably have to keep a second job 2 Know the crowd Having an idea of who your crowd is before the event begins is critical to successful DJing If youre playing a wedding for instance be prepared to play more slow songs than usual and try to get a grasp on the brides musical tastes beforehand If youre playing a nightclub get familiar with what the club owner prefers and what his or her regulars like The regulars keep the club afloat and by extension pay your fee learn how to keep them happy Be careful with requests If youre playing a nightclub that caters to a hip hop crowd and you have a tourist or someone unfamiliar with the scene requesting a song that doesn t fit with the genre consider carefully before you play it  Remember your aim is to keep the core of the audience happy and coming back Use the music to manage the event Divide different styles of songs into different sections Play slower quieter songs at the beginning of the party Slowly slip into a jazzier groove and pull out the heavier songs at the end Above all read the crowd and notice what theyre responding to Dont play mostly fast songs at a wedding This will take away from the romantic atmosphere Dont play mostly slow songs at a gathering of kids They will get bored fast Develop a Following Build your charisma As a DJ you are responsible for entertaining a large group of people all by yourself The music you play is important but you also need to pay attention to how you act on stage Dont just stand there hunched over your decks Thats boring Try to be someone who attracts attention in a good way Also learn when to step back and let the group dynamic take over Be professional Show up to your events ontime and fully prepared Give each gig your best effort Have fun with the crowd but keep your interactions professional and respectful you never know whos watching Keep a busy schedule As youre gaining a fan base play as many shows as necessary to get your name out there Book yourself on a tight schedule at first to keep your interest alive and your creativity fresh evelop a Web presence If you dont have the time or money to build your own website start an account for your DJing career on Twitter or Facebook Promote your shows and make time to connect with your fans and personally respond to their messages Make playlists Build playlists on iTunes or Spotify and share them with your fans This allows them to sample your musical tastes and lets you introduce people to new music you want to incorporate into your shows Mixes Develop a good balance of banter and playing Your crowd will want you to talk to them a little bit but not too much Also just have fun Always be full of inspiration when you are playing Have a friend in the crowd help you set the volume You want it to be loud enough for people to hear the beat but not so loud that they cant hear their partners talk Try arranging the song titles of the popular songs into a continuous narrative For example Lady in Red drove a Little Red Corvette  Dont make a habit of doing free or cheap gigs You dont want to be typecast as a cheap DJ Clients should be hiring you because you are good not because you are cheap Never put another DJ down The DJ community is tight If you get a negative reputation youll regret it Stack your DJ equipment high so partygoers dont spill anything on it A music library DJ turntables or CD players A mixer for more advanced DJ

organization experimentation header  One sign of a great live performer  DJs included  is that they are constantly looking to improve in as many areas within their skillset as they can No matter how good you get at DJing producing or playing out  if you fail to improve you give opportunity to others to surpass you This article offers tips separated into three topics ergonomics organization and experimentation  read on to find out how each applies to your DJing production or live performance pursuits Expanding in these three areas is critical  for ergonomics physical user interaction with DJ and production equipment is key as it is fundamental to perform in a comfortable physical state Organization is widely regarded as one of the most essential characteristics for success Finally without experimentation  music would simply not be as we know it today Results of experimentation also means putting a personal stamp on your performance and standing out from the crowd  something that promoters and punters alike look for in artists ERGONOMICS Photo Credit Basketball91com Like musicians DJs  live performers can benefit highly from ergonomics This knowledge both greatly improves performance on the short term and will aid your health over years of performing Stretching equipment height and laptop access all fall under this category Stretching As with many physical activities stretching can lead to prolonged endurance and keeping yourself injury free while improving your peak performance You would be surprised how quickly you can improve with simple muscle stretches before and after practicing compared to practicing alone The recommended muscles to stretch are your upper chest front neck muscles shoulder muscles and forearm muscles Stretching these muscles for about thirty seconds is recommended As with all stretching it is important to make sure you dont strain yourself and if you have any physical constraints consult your physician DJ Equipment Height While it may not seem like a big deal now the last thing you want is to have back trouble in your old age Adjusting your equipment to a comfortable height can not only save your back but also improve the level of your performance over a short period of time In order to achieve a neutral position for your wrist in relation to the control surfacerecord platters their tops records jogwheels  faders should be approximately even with your navel Using an adjustable table or roadcases is a smart way of raising your equipment to this level Laptop Access The placement of your laptop is an important factor as having easy access can improve your performance workflow While there is no one correct placement of your laptop there are a number of things that you should avoid If you have to bend down to read the screen your laptop consider Increasing font size on your DJ software Upgrading to a laptop with a larger screen Investing in a laptop stand DJTTs store crew recommends the Crane Stand Pro but there are many options Its better to access your laptop at a comfortable height with a few steps over to the side than to constantly crane over your equipment Consider moving your laptop around in your setup until you find a comfortable position to access it This will prevent you from having to crane your neck or body While this seems like an obvious thing to do it is surprising the amount of DJs that fall into the bad habit of craning their body even if  its for a few seconds at a time Read More Laptop placement can mean the difference between Serato Face or not ORGANIZATION Organization keeps you motivated your morale high and can produce better results in a shorter time While it might seem boring to some being organized can actually lead to more exciting performances as being in total control of your performance is arguably more satisfying than trying something completely spontaneously You cant impress a crowd with a spontaneous technique if you dont know how its going to sound All the top performers organize themselves in many aspects  including their practices music collections and traveling tools Efficient Practice Setting up your equipment in an organized fashion can produce better results and improve your creativity One way to achieve this is to reorganize your equipment desk table Try this simple practice exercise Clear everything off the desk you practice on Write on a sheet of paper how long you aim to practice for what you aim to practice on and the minimum amount of equipment you need to fulfill this practice Only put on the desk the equipment you need to achieve your goal Practice Sticking to this method of practice your performance ability will improve rapidly Start basic and as you improve increase the challenge Sometimes having excess equipment can be distracting if you initially didnt plan on using it Deciding half way through your practice that you want to add something else to the practice will ultimately stall your goal You can always plan your next practice with your new idea but it is important to discipline yourself to complete one goal before advancing to the next Aside from tips from Invisibl Skratch Pickz weve never had a complete article about practicing Let us know your practice tips in the comments  Music Collection While this is a well documented area organizing your music collection can lead to an improved workflow increased creativity and a better knowledge of your music base When building organization you obviously should consider factors like BPM range harmonic keys genres and routines when organizing your tracks Creating a number of different signature routines can make you stand out among other DJsperformers Editors Tip Ean always talks about having his sets organized in small batches with two or three songs that go well together well noted in your crates playlists so that youve got built in routines into your standard playlists Consider what platform to organize your music in whether that be in drive folders iTunes or your preferred performance software as each have advantages and disadvantages Take a look at previous DJTechTools articles for ideas on how to organize your music Utility Travel BagCase Knowing exactly what is in your bag is key when touring travelling or even playing local gigs Packing your utility bag to go to a gig is a something most performers are familiar with Organizing it correctly can save you unwanted embarrassment if done right First write out a list of all equipment cables music you plan to use at your gig With this consider the items on your list that are most likely to fail Among the most likely to fail may include USB leads Audio cables  Power leads Cartridge needles Packing a spare of each of the most likely items to fail is a good measure to combat a DJs worst nightmare silence You can prove to be the hero of the day should another performer forget a cable There is only so much preparation you can do Should your laptop fail remember all technology has potential to fail Even the best turntables have potential to fail Read More Always make a list to make sure your DJ gear is all there EXPERIMENTATION New techniques in all areas of music are often discovered through accidents or experiments This can be the most frustrating exciting side of music Discovering or developing a new technique can be a way of having your own personal signature or contributing to your area of music Live Performance with computers is a relatively new area compared to DJing and is therefore a means for discovery Plan For Experimentation While techniques from accidents can not be planned experimentation most definitely can While planning when to practice include time or a session for experimenting For example if you practice five times a week include a little time in each practice session for experimenting or if you practice six times a month change add one session to experiment  It is important to remember that experimentation has potential to lead to produce little or no results Therefore  plan it as a little something extra after the more essential practices that do lead to results As a reference point experimentation should include doing things that you have never tried before Learn The Rules  Then Break The Rules is essential to have a fundamental understanding of what you plan to experiment with If you dont know the rules you cant break them on purpose For example if you have no idea what you are doing you can end up damaging part of your equipmenSo learn as much as you can and then innovate collaborate but dont decimate If youre not already familiar with the basics of your equipment search for tutorials online or read the included manual Take It Further With Software The more advanced functionality of a performance software the more experimenting you can do But even with the most advanced performance software they all have their ultimate limitations There are a few applications that are designed for developing new ideas from scratch that dont require lines of codes but rather graphical coding With more codebased solutions the possibilities are endless and provide a great platform for expanding your ideas If you havent before take a look at PureData Free  Max MSP a must for Ableton users and Processing VJs will be very interested in some of the opportunities here although its way more code instense bit more  to see if either can offer you something more Editors Note Weve seen a number of advanced software applications built in Max MSP  including an upcoming application from Mad Zach himself WRAP IT UP Whether you decided to introduce stretches before and after your practices or simply organize your travel bag more efficiently youre bound to reap the benefits when you are on stage at your next gig performing Feel free to discuss these tips below in the comments or contribute your own Keith Brady is a MSc Music Technology postgraduate that

tweaks that I recommend making to Traktors preferences to get everything dialed Audio Setup Latency as low as you can go without overloading your CPU  mine s at 192Transport Loops  Set Auto Detect Size  0 seconds Transport Cue Play Mode Instant Loop Recorder Record Latency 3ms or as low as possible without CPU overload ADDITIONAL TIPS TO MAKE YOUR REMIX SETS ROCK Although you probably dont want to turn Quantize on when youre recording into the loop recorder it helps to have it on when you launch the loop recording This will help make sure your loop recording starts precisely on the first beat My solution was to map a button right below my start loop button to momentarily turn on Quantize I would press it just before I start the loop recorder and then let go once I start recording my cue point juggling Use the EQ and effects to make your loops sit well together in the mix For example I cut the bass out of hihats acapellas etc You can also use trailing effects like Delay to extend the length on short blips Tune your loops and samples to fit together in the same key by using your tempo pitch bend Remember you can also resample multiple tracks from the Remix Decks down to one

footer icon Youtube footer icon  Get hooked up   Traktor s Remix Decks successfully stirred up a lot of interest and a fair amount of controversy but now that the dust has settled is anyone actually using them  The reality appears to be that many DJs including myself are having a hard time finding simple ways to integrate them into a regular DJ set Even Chris Liebing mentioned his lack of inspiration around them in Fridays informative interview  Today we ve got a creative recipe for Remix Deck success that only takes five minutes to cook up  and all it requires is a little special sauce Here are the problems we currently see with using the Remix Decks extensively in a standard DJ set It takes a lot of time to create a Remix Kit with individual loops and parts There are not many quality pre made kits out there to play with Its not practical to arrange a song manually using loops a la Ableton without follow actions and other more sequencer esque tools Placing a lot of sounds over finished tracks starts to sound very busy Triggering quantized loops can get a bit boring for you and the audience So what is my suggestion for spicing up the decks Well for starters  the Traktor Remix Decks can be used as very expressive sample players You can play up to four cells at the same time polyphonic control Each cell can have its own voicing and looping characteristics They can each be routed to effects and individually affected They can be quantized down to the 1 4 note This makes them really good for the next evolution in cue point juggling of samples over songs Add in effects on top of the samples and you have a recipe for fun remixing on the fly  Route Beat Repeat and space effects to individual samples to create morphing patterns that float over songs Route the effects to cut out parts of your master track when you trigger a sample at the same time This last bullet is the key point By double mapping buttons to trigger samples and turn on effects at the same time you can create effortless remixes and chop up any song at will Here is just one example Double map a big drum roll sample from a famous song and a beat repeat  on your playing track at the same time Drop it in anywhere for a polished sound that seamlessly remixes any track Simply put when activating a sample cell apply a complimentary effect to the underlying track on that same button press so everything sounds glued together and very much like a real remix THE SPECIAL SAUCE Executing something like this is relatively simple in regular MIDI land You would double assign a button to launch a clip and turn on an effect at the same time The problem of course is that its only possible to control all remix deck cells through HID using the F1 controller or Midi Fighter 3D  The MF 3D is the only controller today that sends out HID and MIDI at the same time  making these double mappings very simple on all remix decks Fortunately you are not totally out of luck The top four cells in each Remix Deck are MIDI assignable so everyone can experiment with this concept on any controller right away  REMIX DECK MAPPING FOR MIDI FIGHTER 3D Here are some ways you can get involved win some cool

Scratch Live Virtual Dj and Traktor Several techniques are used by DJs as a means to better mix and blend recorded music These techniques primarily include the cueing equalization and audio mixing of two or more sound sources The complexity and frequency of special techniques depends largely on the setting in which a DJ is working Radio DJs are less likely to focus on music mixing procedures than club DJs who rely on a smooth transition between songs using a range of techniques Club DJ turntable techniques include beatmatching phrasing and slip cueing to preserve energy on a dancefloor Turntablism embodies the art of cutting beat juggling scratching needle drops phase shifting back spinning and more to perform the transitions and overdubs of samples in a more creative manner although turntablism is often considered a use of the turntable as a musical instrument rather than a tool for blending recorded music Professional DJs may use harmonic mixing to choose songs that are in compatible musical keys citation needed Recent advances in technology in both DJ hardware and software can provide assisted or automatic completion of some traditional DJ techniques and skills Examples include phrasing and beatmatching which can be partially or completely automated by utilizing DJ software that performs automatic Synchronization of sound recordings a feature commonly labelled Sync Most DJ mixers now include a beat counter which analyzes the tempo of an incoming sound source and displays its tempo in Beats Per Minute BPM  which may assist with beatmatching analog sound sources Software has also been written to assist with the identification of musical keys for use in harmonic mixing which analyze computer media files for musical content and automatically determine the musical key citation needed edit History Gnome globe current event svg This section is outdated Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information Last update The history section of this article needs to be updated starting with the end of 1999 to the start of 2011 May 2012   edit 19th century to 1920s In 1892 Emile Berliner began commercial production of his gramophone records the first disc records to be offered to the public In 1906 Reginald Fessenden transmitted the first audio radio broadcast in history also playing the first record that of a contralto singing Handels Largo from Xerxes 3 The worlds first radio disc jockey was Ray Newby of Stockton California In 1909 at 16 years of age Newby began regularly playing records on a small transmitter while a student at Herrold College of Engineering and Wireless located in San Jose California under the authority of radio pioneer Charles Doc Herrold  4 5 We used popular records at that time  mainly Caruso records  because they were very good and loud  we needed a boost we started on an experimental basis and then because this is novel we stayed on schedule continually without leaving the air at any time from that time on except for a very short time during World War I when the government required us to remove the antenna Most of our programming was records I ll admit but of course we gave out news as we could obtain it 4 Ray Newby Ive Got a Secret 1965 By 1910 regular radio broadcasting had started to use live as well as prerecorded sound In the early radio age content typically included comedy drama news music and sports reporting The on air announcers and programmers would later be known as disc jockeys In the 1920s juke joints became popular as places for dancing and drinking to recorded jukebox music In 1927 Christopher Stone became the first radio announcer and programmer in the United Kingdom on the BBC radio station edit 1930s 1950s  A young woman plays a gramophone in an air raid shelter in north London 1940 In 1935 American radio commentator Walter Winchell coined the term disc jockey the combination of disc referring to the disc records and jockey which is an operator of a machine as a description of radio announcer Martin Block the first announcer to become a star While his audience was awaiting developments in the Lindbergh kidnapping Block played records and created the illusion that he was broadcasting from a ballroom with the nations top dance bands performing live The show which he called Make Believe Ballroom was an instant hit The term  disc jockey appeared in print in Variety in 1941 6 Prior to this most music heard on radio was live most radio stations had an orchestra or band on the payroll 7 8 The Federal Communications Commission also clearly favored live music providing accelerated license approval to stations promising not to use any recordings for their first three years on the air  6  Many noted recording artists tried to keep their recorded works off the air by having their records labeled as not being legal for airplay  It took a Federal court ruling in 1940 to establish that a recording artist had no legal right to control the use of a record after it was sold 6 In 1943 Jimmy Savile launched the worlds first DJ dance party by playing jazz records in the upstairs function room of the Loyal Order of Ancient Shepherds in Otley England In 1947 he claims to have become the first DJ to use twin turntables for continuous play and in 1958 became a radio DJ at Radio Luxembourg Also in 1947 the Whiskey a Go Go nightclub opened in Paris France considered to be the worlds first commercial discotheque or disco deriving its name from the French word meaning a nightclub where the featured entertainment is recorded music rather than an on stage band  Regine began playing on twin turntables there in 1953 Discos began appearing across Europe and the United States The postwar period coincided with the rise of the radio disc jockey as a celebrity separate from the radio station also known as a radio personality  In the days before station controlled playlists the DJ often followed their personal tastes in music selection DJs also played a role in exposing rock and roll artists to large national audiences While at WERE  1300 AM  in Cleveland  Ohio  DJ Bill Randle was one of the first to introduce Elvis Presley to radio audiences in the northeastern US  9 Notable US radio disc jockeys of the period include Alan Freed  Wolfman Jack  Casey Kasem  10  and their British counterparts such as the BBC s Brian Matthew  Radio London s John Peel  and later in the 60s Radio Carolines Tony Blackburn 11  Freed is commonly referred to as the father of rock and roll due to his promotion of the music and his introduction of the phrase rock and roll on radio in the early 1950s  Freed also made a practice of presenting music by African American artists rather than cover versions by white artists on his radio program  Freeds career ended when it was shown that he had accepted payola a practice that was highly controversial at the time resulting in his being fired from his job at WABC  12 In the 1950s American radio DJs would appear live at  sock hops and  platter parties  and assume the role of a human jukebox They would usually play 45 rpm records  featuring hit singles on one turntable while talking between songs  In some cases  a live drummer was hired to play beats between songs to maintain the dance floor  In 1955  Bob Casey  a well known  sock hop  DJ  brought the two turntable system to the U S  Throughout the 1950s payola continued to be a problem and one result of the payola scandal was tighter control of the music by station management  The Top 40 format emerged where popular songs are played repeatedly In the late 1950s sound systems a new form of public entertainment were developed in the ghettos of Kingston Jamaica Promoters who called themselves DJs would throw large parties in the streets that centered on the disc jockey called the selector  who played dance music from large  loud PA systems and bantered over the music with a boastful rhythmic chanting style called  toasting  These parties quickly became profitable for the promoters who would sell admission food and alcohol leading to fierce competition between DJs for the biggest sound systems and newest records edit 1960s and 1970s In the mid 1960s  nightclubs and discotheques continued to grow in Europe and the United States Specialized DJ equipment  such as Rudy Bozak s classic CMA 10 2DL mixer began to appear on the market In 1969 American club DJ Francis Grasso popularized beatmatching at New Yorks Sanctuary nightclub  Beatmatching is the technique of creating seamless transitions between records with matching beats or tempos Grasso also developed slip cuing the technique of holding a record still while the turntable is revolving underneath releasing it at the desired moment to create a sudden transition from the previous record This technique had long been used in radio By 1968 the number of dance clubs started to decline most American clubs either closed or were transformed into clubs featuring live bands Neighborhood block parties that were modelled after Jamaican sound systems gained popularity in Europe and in the boroughs of New York City In 1973 Jamaican born DJ Kool Herc widely regarded as the father of hip hop culture  performed at block parties in his Bronx neighborhood and developed a technique of mixing back and forth between two identical records to extend the rhythmic instrumental segment or break Turntablism the art of using turntables not only to play music but to manipulate sound and create original music began to develop In 1974 Technics released the first SL 1200 turntable  which evolved into the SL 1200 MK2 in 1979 which  as of the early 2010s  remains an industry standard for DJing  In 1974 German electronic music band Kraftwerk released the 22 minute song  Autobahn   which takes up the entire first side of that LP  Years later Kraftwerk would become a significant influence on hip hop artists such as Afrika Bambaataa and house music pioneer Frankie Knuckles  During the mid 1970s Hip hop music and culture began to emerge  originating among urban African Americans and Latinos in New York City The four main elements of Hip Hop culture are graffiti DJing breakdancing and MCing rapping In the mid-1970s the soul funk blend of dance pop known as disco took off in the mainstream pop charts in the United States and Europe causing discotheques to experience a rebirth Unlike many late 1960s clubs which featured live bands discotheques used the DJs selection and mixing of records as the entertainment In 1975 record pools began providing disc jockeys access to newer music from the industry in an efficient method In 1975 13 hip hop DJ Grand Wizard Theodore invented the scratching technique by accident In 1976 American DJ editor and producer Walter Gibbons remixed  Ten Percent  by Double Exposure  one of the earliest commercially released 12  singles  aka  maxi single   In 1979  the Sugar Hill Gang released  Rapper s Delight the first hip hop record to become a hit  It was also the first real breakthrough for sampling  as the bassline of Chics   Good Times laid the foundation for the song In 1977 Saratoga Springs NY disc jockey Tom L Lewis introduced the Disco Bible later renamed Disco Beats  which published hit disco songs listed by beats per minute  tempo as well as by either artist or song title Billboard ran an article on the new publication and it went national relatively quickly The list made it easier for beginning DJs to learn how to create seamless transitions between songs without dancers having to change their rhythm on the dance floor Today DJs can find the beats per minute of songs in the BPM List edit 1980s In 1981 the cable television network MTV was launched originally devoted to music videos especially popular rock music The term video jockey or VJ was used to describe the fresh faced youth who introduced the music videos In 1982 the demise of disco in the mainstream by the summer of 1982 forced many nightclubs to either close or change entertainment styles such as by providing MT style video dancing or live bands Released in 1982 the song  Planet Rock  by DJ Afrika Bambaataa was the first hip hop song to feature synthesizers  The song melded electro hip hop beats influenced by Yellow Magic Orchestra with the melody from Kraftwerk s  Trans Europe Express  In 1982 the Compact Disc reached the public market in Asia and early the following year in other markets This event is often seen as the Big Bang of the digital audio revolution In the early 1980s NYC disco DJ Larry Levan known for his eclectic mixes gained a cult following and the Paradise Garage the nightclub at which he spun became the prototype for the modern dance club where the music and the DJ were showcased Around the same time the disco influenced electronic style of dance music called house music emerged in Chicago The name was derived from the Warehouse Club in Chicago  where resident DJ Frankie Knuckles mixed old disco classics and Eurosynth pop  House music is essentially disco music with electronic drum machine beats The common element of most house music is a 4 4 beat generated by a drum machine or other electronic means  such as a sampler   together with a solid  usually also electronically generated synth bassline  In 1983  Jesse Saunders released what some consider the first house music track   On    On  The mid 1980s also saw the emergence of New York Garage  a house music hybrid that was inspired by Levan s style and sometimes eschewed the accentuated high hats of the Chicago house sound  During the mid 1980s  techno music emerged from the Detroit club scene  Being geographically located between Chicago and New York  Detroit techno artists combined elements of Chicago house and New York garage along with European imports  Techno distanced itself from disco s roots by becoming almost purely electronic with synthesized beats  In 1985  the Winter Music Conference started in Fort Lauderdale Florida and became the premier electronic music conference for dance music disc jockeys In 1985  TRAX Dance Music Guide was launched by American Record Pool in Beverly Hills  It was the first national DJ published music magazine  created on the Macintosh computer using extensive music market research and early desktop publishing tools  In 1986   Walk This Way  a  rap rock collaboration by Run DMC and Aerosmith  became the first hip hop song to reach the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100  This song was the first exposure of hip hop music  as well as the concept of the disc jockey as band member and artist to many mainstream audiences In 1988 DJ Times magazine was first published It was the first US-based magazine specifically geared toward the professional mobile and club DJ Starting in the mid 1980s the wedding and banquet business changed dramatically with the introduction of DJ music replacing the bands that had been the norm Bandleaders like Jerry Perell and others started DJ companies such as NY Rhythm DJ Entertainers Using their knowledge of audience participation MC charisma and crowd pleasing  repertory selection the wedding music industry became almost all DJ while combining the class and elegance of the traditional band presentation New DJs as well as bandleaders with years of experience and professionalism transformed the entire industry edit 1990s During the early 1990s the rave scene built on the acid house scene The rave scene changed dance music the image of DJs and the nature of promoting The innovative marketing surrounding the rave scene created the first superstar DJs who established marketable brands around their names and sound Some of these celebrity DJs toured around the world and were able to branch out into other music related activities During the early 1990s the Compact Disc surpassed the gramophone record in popularity but gramophone records continued to be made although in very limited quantities into the 21st century particularly for club DJs and for local acts recording on small regional labels In 1991 Mobile Beat magazine geared specifically toward mobile DJs  began publishing In 1992 MPEG which stands for the Moving Picture Experts Group released The MPEG 1 standard  designed to produce reasonable sound at low bit rates  The lossy compression scheme MPEG 1 Layer 3 popularly known as MP3 later revolutionized the digital music domain In 1993 the first internet  radio station  Internet Talk Radio  was developed by Carl Malamud Because the audio was relayed over the internet  it was possible to access internet radio stations from anywhere in the world  This made it a popular service for both amateur and professional disc jockeys operating from a personal computer In 1998 the first MP3 digital audio player was released the Eiger Labs MPMan F10 Final Scratch debuted at the BE Developer Conference marking the first digital DJ system to allow DJs control of MP3 files through special time coded vinyl records or CDs  While it would take sometime for this novel concept to catch on with the  die hard Vinyl DJs  This would soon become the first step in the new Digital DJ revolution  Manufacturers joined with computer DJing pioneers to offer professional endorsements  the first being Professor Jam  aka William P  Rader  who went on to develop the industry s first dedicated computer DJ convention and learning program  the  CPS Computerized Performance System  DJ Summit  to help spread the word about the advantages of this emerging technology In 1999 Shawn Fanning released Napster the first of the massively popular peer to peer file sharing systems  During this period  the AVLA  Audio Video Licensing Agency  of Canada announced an MP3 DJing license  administered by the Canadian Recording Industry Association  This meant that DJs could apply for a license giving them the right to perform publicly using music stored on a hard drive  instead of having to cart their whole CD collections around to their gigs  At OAB Audio we started out running mobile discos across the West

Specifications  Enhance Your Worship with Properly Installed quality Church Sound Equipment It doesn t matter which instruments churches decide to use in their music ministry because the ultimate aim is to play music that people find uplifting and to praise God If your worship team needs good church sound equipment  amp ndash  cables  speakers  cords  mics and mixing boards  get advice on which equipment can perform the task effectively There are musical professionals  as well as sound engineers  who help to customize systems to each church s unique Church layout  their budget and performance needs  Sound systems amplify the voice of the preacher and the performances of the singers and musicians  They are available in varying degrees of complexity   depending on the level of amplification and mix of sound you re looking for Putting Together Unique Sound Systems The systems installed may include distributed AV systems which will enable the sermon to be heard in other areas of the church  Induction loop systems may also be installed so that people who are hard of hearing can hear the sound properly They also assist with video and audio recording for churches that record their services for public broadcasting Improve Your Church s Sound System Professional audio engineers realise that a properly installed sound systems will complement the sermons and performances for the congregation and the individual  They can work exclusively with churches  providing solutions for room acoustics as well as training others to use the equipment  If a church sound system experiences audio interference  its purpose is no longer that of upliftment and inspiration but rather  frustration  Feedback and unbalanced mixes harm the atmosphere of a service  possibly causing interruptions and ruining the flow of the service Get The Acoustics Right Before You Buy Sound Equipment The acoustics of the church will determine the sound level of the pastor s voice the organ piano and drums and other instruments Music professionals know all too well that a venue can spend a fortune on sound equipment but if the acoustics are not right there will be echoes and complaints about the loudness The focus of church sound equipment is to provide a clear and even reproduction of sound throughout the entire building Good Acoustics Trained Operator  Quality Sound Equipment A Recipe For Success High quality sound can only be achieved with high quality audio equipment and a knowledgeable technical sound system operator Church sound systems can either be pretty basic or more complex These sound systems come with a multi channeled stereo mixer board and a number of features such as digital delay audio distribution mixing and splitting reverb phantom power supply as well as recording equipment A monitor system is needed for singers on stage to be able to keep the same tone as the other singers The positioning of the audio control mixer board also requires careful consideration  Most of the time  the sound controls and operator need to be located where they are in the same acoustic environment as the congregation This will achieve high fidelity amplification of sound before feedback occurs There s no doubt that church sound equipment can either enhance or distract from the worshiping experience  A well designed sound system should never be a distraction and should sound natural so that worshippers can concentrate on the clear delivery of both the pastor and the musicians Fastrak opened its first store in van der Walt st Pretoria in September 2003

Headphones  Dj Mixers  Mp3 Controllers  Turntables CDJ CDJ is a term used to describe a CD player that allows analogue control of music from CDs usually using an emulated vinyl control surface The term CDJ is derived from the first controller the CDJ 500 from Pioneer Electronics though the term is now used generically to describe any CD player designed for DJs use This system is suitable for DJs who prefer using CDs  compact disks  because of the added benefit that CDs have over vinyls The benefit is that more data songs are stored on a cd than a vinyl which typically has very few tracks and therefore necessitates carrying around of bags and bags of heavy vinyls when going to perform at a gig Controllers  software controllers This system is suitable for DJ s who prefer using computer software to mix because of the added benefit that hard drive disks  HDD   have over cds   vinyls  The benefit is that more data songs are stored on a hard drive than both cd and vinyl which necessitates carrying around cd or vinyl bags whereas laptops or computers are light and portable and can have thousands and thousands of songs in mp3  wma  AIFF or wav formats  Another benefit for DJs is the access to many sound and processing effects that dj s enjoy using to enhance their mixing sets The DJ digital controllers aim to emulate the traditional mixer turntable CD turntable set up  Most controllers come with shuttle jog dials that mimic turntable control of an audio file though with slightly less accuracy The use of DJ digital controllers with DJ software allow for a more mobile and compact system Usually the use of a DJ digital controller lets the DJ not have to transport more expensive fragile heavier analog equipment With the use of the controllers there is no need to use CDs or records This is particularly beneficial to Mobile disc jockeys who are increasingly using computer based DJ set ups for this particular reason Audio Visual equipment has made a great impact upon the lives of people around the world The incorporation of audio  sound and images visual has brought with it many forms of useful devices including T V  DVD players  cellphones  computer devices  movie cinemas etc  At Aliwal Sound we recognise the power of this medium for conferencing  presentations  entertainment  business and education and therefore supply a wide range of audio visual

Lightsounds  for the efficient service and good advice on which equipment to hire for my daughter  Emily s 19th birthday party  which was held at home  including in the backyard  I hired 2 Wharfedale powered speakers which we were able to play music directly from an ipod  Also we hired 2 led parcans which were set to change colours with the music and a water effect light  as well as using a minilaser  which gave a fast moving pattern of light dots on the side of the house   We were careful to mount the minilaser so that it wouldn t shine directly into any anybody s eyes The lighting effect in the backyard was spectacular and it set the mood for an excellent birthday party Thank you to everyone at Lightsounds for helping make my daughter s party so successful Lightsounds Gold

birthday in Durban  She wanted a hippy/ disco themed birthday party at our home  and we needed a good DJ for the job  As we have recently moved back to Durban after 6 years in the UK  we did not know any local DJs and searched the web to find someone suitable  We liked the looked of DJ Devan website  and e-mailed him for a quote Within a few minutes he had emailed us back with a favourable quote and we arranged to meet to plan the birthday party During our meeting  DJ Devan discussed the party plan with us  as well as suggest the best possible setup etcmOn the day of the party DJ Devan and his assistant Kuben arrived well in time to set up their equipment laser lights and smoke machine When the children arrived everything was in place and looked fantastic and DJ Devan got the party started straight away  To say that I have never seen 12 year olds have so much fun at a party would be an understatement  Everyone joined in the dancing, there was even a special dance for my daughter with her Daddy  DJ Devan had the children shouting clapping  dancing and singing  and also had everyone joining in games like a Vuvuzela  blowing competition  etc Later on he handed the microphone around to everyone who wanted to wish my daughter a happy birthday which was really special  This was by far the best party she  ever had  and parents had to drag their children of the dancefloor by the end of the evening I can highly recommend DJ Devan for any occasion he is friendly professional  and really knows how to get everyone dancing and enjoying themselves He made my daughter feel like a princess for the evening and we are already thinking of more family parties Devan can host for us Thank you DJ Devan for an unforgettable evening  a fantastic time was had by all Warmest Wishes Amelda Grieve Morningside Durban CALL DJ DEVAN NOW AND LET ME TURN YOUR FUNCTION INTO AN EVENT  A FUNCTION LASTS FOR A DAY BUT MEMORIES LAST FOREVER mC My party would really have not been the same

7661 OR mail me djdevan Party congratulations  You have booked the venue, the photographer  the caterer  your outfit for that special day fits you perfectly fine and all you need to do is book the DJ and MC  I dont want to scare you,but this could be one of the most important decisions that u will make during the planning of your function and the success thereof could depend on this decision  Therefore the choice of the DJ and MC should not be taken lightly  Here are a few tips i would like you to keep in mind when you are booking a MC and DJ for your function MAKE SURE YOUR DJ UNDERSTANDS WHAT IS EXPECTED OF HIM AND WHAT THE FUNCTION ENTAILS CHECK REFERENCES FIND OUT ABOUT THE MUSIC COLLECTION FIND OUT ABOUT THE QUALITY OF THE SOUND FIND OUT WHETHER THE DJ USES TRADITIONAL CD PLAYERS OR THE DJ PLAYS MUSIC FROM THE LAP TOP  I FIND THAT DJS WHO PLAY FROM THE LAP TOPS HAVE NO VIBE AND THEY ARE NOT INTERACTIVE NOTHING CAN BEAT THE DJ PLAYING LIVE AND MIXING MUSIC ON PROFESSIONAL CD PLAYERS AND A MIXER FIND OUT WHETHER THE DJ USES THE MICROPHONE THERE ARE IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS TO BE MADE AT EVERY FUNCTION A DJ does not just change CDs  A Dj has to create vibe excitement and love what he does  He needs to be passionate about what he is doing The music selection has to vary  At every function whether its a wedding or birthday party  there are young and old guests The Dj needs to cater for all music tastes  CONDUCT A DJ is a working service provider at your function  He needs to be neatly dressed an he must not have too many friends that he brings along  I once went to a wedding where the Dj had a track pants and cap He also had about 6 assistants with him When dinner was served  the DJ and his assistants were the first to sit down an eat This was so unprofessional  After supper i went to chat with the DJ and he said to me that he did not charge any money to do the function  He is a family friend  So im sure you dont want this to happen at your function THE FOLLOWING IS A LIST OF IMPORTED STUFF FOR SALE DJ TSHIRTS PRO DJ CAPS dJ INSTRUCTIONAL DVD LEARN TO DJ BOOK SECOND HAND VINYL AND CD LEARN TO SCRATCH DVD ORIGINAL CdS WITH 12 TRACKS OVER

Gear  Sound Systems  Club Lighting  Studio Gear  DJ Music Production training facilities and Gear Rentals   DJ Mix Club was established back in 1998 as an official Technics DJ School and was the first DJ School set up in South Africa  When we kicked things off we ran the DJ school out the back of a record store in Blairgowrie before taking over the entire business in 2003  We introduced a new DJ store business model and began to run things our own unique way with the emphasis on importing the latest 12  records from the UK  USA  Germany and Holland  in addition to retailing the hottest DJ equipment out at the time  The DJ Mix Club still imports the formidable range of Technics headphones  Selected turntables are still available from our store however we have progressed to selling more CD players and DJ MIDI controllers than turntables now a days  Since 98 the DJ Mix Club has trained over 4000 students at our store and our DJ Courses and methods have also been integrated into courses for training in tertiary institutions Selected institutions such as Damelin and Allenby as well as prestigious High Schools like Hilton College and St Stithians have requested our services whereby we have run tailored DJ short courses for their students   The DJ Mix Club has crowned multiple national DJ champions in the SA  Battle of the DJ s competition  which started back in 1985  the likes of Ready D DJ Dizzy  Dean  and Nelson  Afroboogie  and given rise to a host of successful DJ s including Shane Halcon  First State  and Paul Bingham  With the digital music transition making broad changes in the way DJ s are learning to play  DJ Mix Club teamed up with Denon DJ in 2011 to put together a digital DJ course using Denon and other popular gear to train students into alternate ways to play their gigs  To this day we still start all new students off on the good old Technics SL before we move them onto CDJ s or controllers to give them a feel of what all the other gear is more or less based on DJ Mix Club have also recently struck up a deal with Native Instruments to provide specialist Traktor DJ courses to educate all of its users out there as to the capabilities of its industry standard DJ software  DJ Mix Club was also one of the few schools to delve into Music Production training as we always felt that production was the next logical step after learning to DJ  Currently we run a 1 Year part-time course weaving together DJing  Music Production and Marketing training as well as 2 month part time specialist courses in Propellerheads Reason or Ableton Live  We are one of the last surviving record and gear stores in South Africa and we can attribute that success to our passionate staff  numerous involvements in the electronic music scene and our multi pillared business model encompassing training  online and physical retail stores and gear rentals  The original mission statement of DJ Mix Club was to be a store that catered for all aspects of DJ Culture  from the training one would receive  the equipment one would need  the music necessary to entertain  to most importantly  the knowledge and inspiration one would need to acquire to sustain one s DJing  whether it be at home  or in the throngs of a club or event  The emphasis for DJ Mix Club has always been on personal relationships and that combined with a concise knowledge of the product  would in itself lead to good service  A friend  after all  will never let you down rip you off or give you bad advice  And that is one of the reasons that the DJ Mix Club brand has been so successful   we always have time for our friends  Our services include not just selling you a box  our specialised in store staff will advise you correctly and assist you through the set up process to make sure you as our customer are satisfied with your important purchase  Pricing on products at DJ Mix Club is the most competitive in the industry  we will beat any written quote within reason and

Playing at a birthday party in some seedy bar a while back I gave up DJing at 14 when a lad from the next town borrowed my very first mixer to play electro and practise breakdancing with his mates Until then Id been risking bollockings from my dad for cueing up tunes on my beltdrive turntable to compile mixtapes that didnt miss a beat or and I kid you not physically editing cassette tapes by cutting the tape on the diagonal and splicing it together with Sellotape just to cut the talking out of the top 40 Yes you could say I was born with an innate desire to mess with the music I was playing and to play it to as many people as I could find whod listen Bedroom door open or shut when playing pop music as a teenager No contest Wide open At 17 when most of my mates were listening to

festival in So Paulo in June many observers wondered  just how difficult is it to DJ really Not at all according to outspoken dance music producer Deadmau5 real name Joel Zimmerman It takes two days to learn as long as you can count to four Zimmerman told Rolling Stone I took on the challenge to see if I could learn to DJ  in one hour Full list The Worlds HighestPaid DJs   The Worlds HighestPaid

TopEarning DJ   Scratch DJ Academy hopes to teach anyone how to spin The brain child of former businessman-turnedmusicenthusiast Rob Principe the academy began when Principe successfully pitched his idea for a DJ school to legendary RunDMC DJ Jam Master Jay in the green room at the Late Show with David Letterman Despite DJs being ubiquitous in our culture there was no onramp to the art form explained Principe cofounder and CEO of Scratch DJ Academy The equipment was expensive and confusing and the demand to learn outweighed any supply of teachers Jam Master Jay soon jumped onboard as a cofounder and instructor at the New York academy A decade later close to 15000 students a year nationwide fork out an average of 350 per sixweek program the most popular of which is a DJ 101 course that covers basic scratching mixing and the use of prominent industry technologies like Serato software A certification course which can take over a year to complete and aims to produce clubready DJs costs just under 2000 DJ Noms a teacher with 17 years DJing experience introduced me to a 3000 deck consisting of two turntables a mixer and a laptop Place your hand at the 9 oclock position and all youre going to do is start to push forward and back instructed DJ Noms Performing this motion every quarter beat created a scratching sound known as the baby scratch That simple movement is the foundation for everything related to DJing said Noms DJs use baby scratches to move tracks so they release on time with another and build upon this basic scratch to create more complicated turntable sounds In the first five minutes of the class  an hourlong session that retails for between 80150  I nailed the baby scratch From there I counted to four a little faster and mastered a scribble scratch  a doubletime version of the baby scratch  and a drag which is a half time count DJ Noms then showed me a slider on the mixer known as a cross fader which can be used to flip back and forth four times a beat between turntables to create a percussive sound known as a transformer scratchAfter 30 seconds of trying I had the transformer scratch down Zimmerman number six on our list of highest earning DJs recently criticized several of his peers for buttonpushing during live shows With the increase in ease afforded by technologies like Ableton and Virtual DJ which can be used to queue and sync tracks Zimmerman claimed several DJproducers rely on prerecorded tracks rather than recreating their music during socalled live sets DJ Noms estimated that about half the working DJs in New York city use just mixers and their laptops while the rest rely on a combination of turntables and Serato technology a mockvinyl software that lets DJs manipulate mp3 files on their laptop while using turntables as a control interface There are even iPhone apps such as djay which let users mix tracks directly from the iTunes library A popular Android version called DJ Studio 3 had over 232000 downloads in June alone Serato makes mixing simpler by queuing up two songs of the DJs choice When an icon on the display goes green the DJ has to release a track on time with the other song Then the DJ just has to turn down the bass and fade out the initial track If you get this  quit Im running out of the building Noms joked Sure enough less than half an hour into the lesson  completed my first

 As a professional DJ unfortunately Im not into being a wasted fool on TV so I dont get paid the big bucks of celeb DJs I take offense to this article Sure Serato makes DJing easier and youre right if you want to be a button pusher sync up your set without learning to read the crowd and preplan everything then yes you can be that DJ in a day and that would probably be your last day as a DJ since no one would ever hire you back However just because you learn the basics does not make you a DJ as you added in at the last minute And it might let you mix two songs together but youll never be a DJ until you learn the actual skill of listening to the cadences of a song crowd reading selection blending mixing timing beat matching by ear not by a green blip on a machine BPMs getting people to let go of their daily stresses and dance their asses off while introducing them to real music and to have respect for those that came before you Scratch LA teaches you on vinyl first before teaching you on Serato and I think that is the way to go So many DJs out there have no respect for the history and true art form of DJing I have worked my butt off for 13 years to put in hard work and taught myself the true skill of DJing working crazy gigs seeing some crazy stuff and hauling heavy ass equipment all by my 100 lb self up flights and flights of stairs yes I play vinyl and they are HEAVY We didnt have DJ academies back then and they still dont in most of the country what are you saying to those kids Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash didnt learn on Serato and they sure as hell couldnt afford brand new equipment when they were starting out They took what they had and made a whole genre of music with it changing the music landscape for decades pass the original trend that everyone thought hiphop was going to be Just because you can learn how to snowboard in one day that doesnt make you a professional snowboarder It takes years of practice and skill and training and mistakes and failures to get there Im glad that you decided to actually to do this yourself and report your experience It sounds like you may have a talent you didnt know you had and I hope you had fun We can always use more female DJs But I hope that you also know that this is just an intro into what it takes to be a DJ Reply  Samantha Diaz Samantha Diaz  8 months ago  As a professional DJ unfortunately

like traktor serato etc probably the most basic skill a dj needs to know such a missguided miss informed article that seems to have come from someone looking down their nose poking fun at the electronic scene unless ive missed something and it was all tongue in cheek Reply Mo MoMoo Mo MoMoo  8 months ago Whoever wrote this article is a fucking moron Paris Hilton behind the decks was and always will be a disaster Anyone who knows whats up has been laughing about this for months in disgust. Reply  jack motel jack motel  8 months ago  Put them in front of turntables the machines that play thin black vinyl discs with small grooves with music they havent heard before and beatmix in one take That separates the men from the boys  As far as button pushing is concerned I think that the interaction the DJ has with their equipment should be more on show big screen  or DJ is more in the crowd like a guitarist or drummer  That way we can watch the craftsmanship of the musician interacting with their instrument Reply  Phillip Arzola Phillip Arzola  8 months ago  Natalie please stick to your studies at Columbia and whatever it is you write on for Forbes but stay the HELL out of things you do not understand Honestly I cant remember the last time I came across an article with such a lack of research and onesided facts that can be easily warped into a 1step guide on how to DJ You learned to scratch a little did a transition into a new song from another made your first Professional mix Oh my god Youd better get yourself ready to travel around the world if its so easy to become a DJ right First off your little professional mix might be considered so if it features a mixing of two songs together in the smallest form of the word but I bet youre not rushing off to show a club manager that mix or anyone else for that matter because you know it is a mere nothingYou seem to fail to mention in the first place that the DJs you have mentioned are mainly PRODUCERS and do both jobs of making the music and performing it live Your number one source of information for the dynamics of DJing is Deadmau5a guy who has even stated himself that he is not a DJ but rather a producer If you did your homework you will see that he is in fact more about the production of his sound rather than what to mix on a turntable Im really not surprised in the first place that Forbes would get something like this wrong on its first attempt and if I had to guess I would say theyyou thought you would be a good choice to write this because you are a college student so you must know alllll about the music riiight but in reality you just gathered some easytofind shallow facts from Google when you typed in DJ in the search bar and took a oneday scratching lesson Next time really take the time to make your articles sound like a Columbia student wrote them not some amateur trying to be a knowitall Thanks Reply   Erik Gustafson Erik Gustafson  8 months ago  HAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA is all I got to say How weak You should stick to writing but you suck at that also Isnt there another fad for you to jump on somewhere Waiting for your 20 minutes of experience on that one also  Reply  Erik Gustafson Erik Gustafson  8 months ago  Come to think of it How do you have a job at Forbes Your unclecousinbrother work there also Reply George Potoff George Potoff  8 months ago  You should also learn than vs then and that youre only scratching the surface of a particular kind of djing HipHop djing which calls for scratching Theres an art to djing house disco techno etc that relies on other abilities which call to question the ear of the mixer Deep house music infused with disco and techno elements is the way Reply  Frank H Frank H  8 months ago  This is pure ignorance First of all the majority of big name EDM like Deadmau5 or Skrillex are producers first and foremost The term DJ is extremely convoluted and misused Using software such as Ableton Reason Pro Tools Logic Que Base I could go on all day to produce EDM takes years to master Your description of learning how to make a professional mix in one day is a joke From the sound of it you learned a few basic scratches and the very basic fundamentals of Serato Scratching has very little to do with mixing and it is simply the stereotypical notion most idiots like yourself think of when they imagine the skills needed to be a DJ Try learning to produce a professional EDM track in a day not going to happen Try taking your day of training into a club and see how professional your dog and pony show of a mix really is Deadmau5 can talk shit about DJs all he wants because hes earned that right to You on the other hand need to take your foot out of your a and shove it in your mouth where it belongs I dont know how you got this gig but do a little more fact checking before you trash talk a very complex and taxing art form

Deadmau5or Skrillex are producers first and foremost The term DJ is extremely convoluted and misused THIS times a million  thank you Reply  Author Natalie Robehmed Natalie Robehmed Forbes Staff 8 months ago Thanks for your comments Frank and Phillip Deadmau5 and Skrillex are certainly producers and I know being a producer isnt the same as being a DJ That being said every member of our HighestPaid list earns money from DJing in some capacity The terms are often confused which is why we titled the package Electronic Cash Kings This article came from a lesson on how to DJ not on how to produce  Id certainly need to take several other classes to do that Id also need hours of practise before I would dare set foot in a club as I note the Scratch certification course which aims to produce clubready DJs takes over a year to complete In this article I acknowledge that being a DJ takes a whole lot more than just pressing play or scratching requiring the incredible ability to read a crowd I did not aim to denigrate the art of DJing  in fact I have an incredible amount of respect for all genres of DJs  but merely tried to offer an insight into a world an increasing number of people are interested in Thanks for reading Calledout comment Reply expand comment joe neptune joe neptune  2 weeks ago  well most djs out there are FAKE THEY USE GHOST PRODUCERS ALL LIERS I MEAN 50

Vicky Nimbalkar  8 months ago  A good article An easiest way to start learning Djing I remember the days when Ive learned this counting to 4 technique while beatmatching I must admit the concept of djing seems easy but actual mastering it is hard Also beyond just mastering it is making an art of it and being individual and different is the hardest part Learning to count beats is just 1 of Djing but using this counting for looping beatmatching cutting takes lot of practice and hard work which newbie DJs doesnt understand and end up paying huge fees to learn Djing but do nothing for years Besides learning Djing techniques a sense of understanding music is too important if you are serious about Djing Reply  Níel Scobie Níel Scobie  8 months ago  How to be a rock star in 3 easy steps

Anon  8 months ago  First and foremost I would have to agree with a majority of the comments posted in regards to some of the misinformation presented in this article I know that some people have responded with anger to the authors views on this subject so there is no need for me to do so I will say that as a newcomer to the DJ culture there were plenty of things that I thought would be easy and that I would be able to pick this up with no problem Boy was I wroAs a graduate of the academys program there is definitely nothing easy about djing I attended the NYC school as a total beginner and at one point I had to ask myself if this was something I could keep up with The instructors there are djs that have studied their craft and dedicated years and years of time to perfect it Ask any one of them and they will tell you that they still have much more to learn In no way did any of them make this look easy I started off on vinyl for my first 12 weeks of classes and as much as I wanted to go digital my instructors insisted that I learn the roots of this first There is a talent that goes into playing vinyl There is a skill that cannot be picked up over night Even with classes I still had to put in at least 2 hours of practice on a daily basis  and that was without having my own equipment  Each class I attended the instructors followed a very detailed and extensive curriculum on basic music theory beatmatching scratching song selection song structure EQ mixing transitions equipment maintenance and repair while always adding in 1 the importance of vinyl and how it has shaped this culture 2 how djs have learned to embrace technology but DO NOT rely on it to do the work for them and 3 regardless of what current  trends are out there this is an art form that has seen many changes and will require much more than a ipod playlist to do this It takes an extreme amount of patience and diligence For some it does come natural  but by far something you can get down in 30 seconds One of the many things that I have learned from all of this is that DJs take this seriously Its a way of life Regardless of the misinformation written in this article I am somewhat pleased to see the dj culture given some sort of recognition Articles like this not only draws peoples attention to the artform even more but it also pushes the passionate ones to speak up and correct any misguided views of this culture Reply  expand comment Anon Anon 8 months ago  For some it does come natural  but by far something you can get down in 30 seconds EDIT Meant to say by far something you CANT get down in 30 seconds Reply  expand 7 comments Luigi Limongi Luigi Limongi  7 months ago  Hey there Natalie this is mexican dj Luigi Limongi and i have to tell you that this class you took whit this people isnt a djing or a mixing class it was a turntablism class and i sincerely doubt that anybody can spin Djing isnt as easy as counting to 4 thats a terrible mistake if anyone can dj why Paris Hilton cant cause ive seen the videos in youtube and that wasnt djing at all that was a joke that was ridiculous and anybody can call that woman DJ Reply  Edgar Hoe Edgar Hoe 5 months ago  this

it to DJ Count to four This article is offensive to anyone putting in time in the art Quote ATrak or anyone who actually Djs during their set Deadmau5 is known for his producing definitely not for his turntablism I wanna hear some of your transforming that you apparently have down So instead of writing an article like this putting a bad name to Djs Put something up so everyone can see how good you really are Untill then your article just sounds like someone who is in high school rambaling not knowing at all what their talking about Reply  B?azej Gorniak B?azej Gorniak  2 months ago  This

where are the mentioned DJ schools based  It saddens me that Forbes readers will take it at face value and actually believe that one can for example learn the transformer scratch in 30 seconds I have been scratching for more that 6 years now I live the artform every day of my life and reading your article I would actually wish that what devote my life to would stay out of any mainstream media lest it be so wrongly presented Please stop writing Reply  Jeff Tharp Jeff Tharp  4 days ago  Back up learning how to transform with a youtube video please  Reply  Follow Comments Most Read on Forbes

suspended over the swimming pool Personally  our DJ careers and seminal club night took us all over our city  and to London  Edinburgh Dublin  Ibiza  We span many happy times at U2 s The Kitchen  and played from a DJ booth suspended over the swimming pool of Privilege the biggest club in the world We guested on radio stations from the local pirates to Ministry of Sound I wrote a set of articles for IDJ magazine on club promoting that became one of their most popular series of all time We headlined in front of 10 000 at our citys biggest open air festival ever And of course as all living the life DJs do  we played countless  truly countless  grubby kitchens in student houses and squats always for free  always until someone kicked us off the decks As well as DJing we learned business and

Faye  Jackie Wife Faye left and friend Jackie at the silent disco Benicassim Spain 06 I was holding the camera not DJing In 2006 22 years after that lad nicked my first mixer I upped sticks to get married and take up a career in writing and marketing in southern Europe working at cool web agency on the Mediterranean coast of Spain promoting lowkey sunset nights in beach bars and playing at hardto-find private parties and events Only taking a rucksack and a suitcase with me my music was all painstakingly ripped to laptop and indeed the last six months of my Manchester club DJing life I played exclusively from a cheap Fujitsu-Siemens and a copy of Virtual DJ at a time when even CD decks were still seen as cheating in some peoples eyes I on the other hand saw the potential of digital DJing straight away embracing it before anyone else I knew even those superstar DJs who regularly played our club Fast forward to now and iTunes a DJ controller and a MacBook is to me quite simply what DJing is all about  and as Editor of Digital DJ Tips Im proud to be right at the heart of it The world of DJing today  post superstar DJ post vinyl post genre snobbery  is very different to when I started Its a world where DJs and bands not only dont see any conflict with each other theyre often the same people A world where a dance party can go off in a beach bar or lounge as easily as in a

have an established following based on a certain type of music Know what you need If you plan to play for a venue that already has a DJ setup you might only need a laptop with music mixing software Some music mixing software may be hard to learn but there are some people who love to use dubstep software If you plan to play in  Start with the basics A basic DJ setup includes two turntables or two CD players headphones and a mixer Later on you can invest in speakers a monitor a MIDI controller an audio interface a mic and various plugins Augment your performance with software These programs will enable you to access a library of MP3s on your hard drive to compliment your vinyl and CD selections  More often than not these programs provide live looping and scratching capability delays and reverbs real time control and video and karaoke options Dont forget your home studio Most DJs record demos  playlists and original music at home Make sure the equipment you bring to the club compliments the equipment you use at home For example if youre a hip hop DJ youll probably want to invest in a scratchbattle mixer at home to simulate a competition environment Be economical Dont invest in topdollar equipment right away Most of your money should be spent on turntables and a mixer Forget the other stuff for now And spend wisely Buy your decks used and your mixer new Learn the Craft Observe Find a DJ whose style you admire and observe him or her as much as possible Pay attention to how songs are constructed and how the crowd is managed After youve watched them a few times approach the DJ after the show and ask for a few tips Most DJs will be happy to help guide you if they know youre serious Gain inspiration from the DJs that hit it big Sometimes it can help to look up to professionals such as Tiesto Avicii,Knife Party,Sebastian Ingrosso etc Get some inspiration Learn to mix beats Beat mixing involves maintaining a constant beat while moving from one song to another  and can be done with varying degrees of complexity  Some DJs pre record mixes at home while others mix beats live Either way the goal is keeping the music constant so that dancers can keep going without a pause Know the BPM of your songs The beats per minute BPM of a song will determine how smoothly or easily you can mix it with another song You can calculate BPM by counting the beats yourself and using a stopwatch Some mixers will have a BPM counter on the board Learn the intros and outros Most dance songs will have an intro in which the music is going but the vocals are not at the beginning of the song and a corresponding outro at the end Mixing usually means blending one songs intro with the outro of another Knowing when an outro starts and an intro begins is critical to live beat mixing Cue up the second song Have your second song ready to go as your first one is winding down Use one hand on the turntable or CD players pitch to adjust speed if your BPMs dont match and put the other on the crossfader so that the first songs volume decreases as the second songs volume increases Keep it simple at first When youre starting out make mixing easier by sticking to two songs that are within 3 BPMs of each other You can also use two songs that are in the same key Learn about all genres of music Often you may know of a couple hit songs in a few genres but that is not enough You need to be a music expert  Heres a list of genres to explore Progressive Breakbeat Hardcore Downtempo Dubstep Drum and Bass Jungle Hip Hop There are many more try searching the internet for similar genres if you enjoy any particular one Start Performing Find a gig Depending on how you want to advance your career you could start playing small private events for a low fee or take a slow weeknight shift at a club or bar Ask a friend whos hosting a party if you can DJ Be aware that if youre inexperienced you wont make much money at first and youll probably have to keep a second job 2 Know the crowd Having an idea of who your crowd is before the event begins is critical to successful DJing If youre playing a wedding for instance be prepared to play more slow songs than usual and try to get a grasp on the brides musical tastes beforehand If youre playing a nightclub get familiar with what the club owner prefers and what his or her regulars like The regulars keep the club afloat and by extension pay your fee learn how to keep them happy Be careful with requests If youre playing a nightclub that caters to a hip hop crowd and you have a tourist or someone unfamiliar with the scene requesting a song that doesn t fit with the genre consider carefully before you play it  Remember your aim is to keep the core of the audience happy and coming back Use the music to manage the event Divide different styles of songs into different sections Play slower quieter songs at the beginning of the party Slowly slip into a jazzier groove and pull out the heavier songs at the end Above all read the crowd and notice what theyre responding to Dont play mostly fast songs at a wedding This will take away from the romantic atmosphere Dont play mostly slow songs at a gathering of kids They will get bored fast Develop a Following Build your charisma As a DJ you are responsible for entertaining a large group of people all by yourself The music you play is important but you also need to pay attention to how you act on stage Dont just stand there hunched over your decks Thats boring Try to be someone who attracts attention in a good way Also learn when to step back and let the group dynamic take over Be professional Show up to your events ontime and fully prepared Give each gig your best effort Have fun with the crowd but keep your interactions professional and respectful you never know whos watching Keep a busy schedule As youre gaining a fan base play as many shows as necessary to get your name out there Book yourself on a tight schedule at first to keep your interest alive and your creativity fresh evelop a Web presence If you dont have the time or money to build your own website start an account for your DJing career on Twitter or Facebook Promote your shows and make time to connect with your fans and personally respond to their messages Make playlists Build playlists on iTunes or Spotify and share them with your fans This allows them to sample your musical tastes and lets you introduce people to new music you want to incorporate into your shows Mixes Develop a good balance of banter and playing Your crowd will want you to talk to them a little bit but not too much Also just have fun Always be full of inspiration when you are playing Have a friend in the crowd help you set the volume You want it to be loud enough for people to hear the beat but not so loud that they cant hear their partners talk Try arranging the song titles of the popular songs into a continuous narrative For example Lady in Red drove a Little Red Corvette  Dont make a habit of doing free or cheap gigs You dont want to be typecast as a cheap DJ Clients should be hiring you because you are good not because you are cheap Never put another DJ down The DJ community is tight If you get a negative reputation youll regret it Stack your DJ equipment high so partygoers dont spill anything on it A music library DJ turntables or CD players A mixer for more advanced DJ

organization experimentation header  One sign of a great live performer  DJs included  is that they are constantly looking to improve in as many areas within their skillset as they can No matter how good you get at DJing producing or playing out  if you fail to improve you give opportunity to others to surpass you This article offers tips separated into three topics ergonomics organization and experimentation  read on to find out how each applies to your DJing production or live performance pursuits Expanding in these three areas is critical  for ergonomics physical user interaction with DJ and production equipment is key as it is fundamental to perform in a comfortable physical state Organization is widely regarded as one of the most essential characteristics for success Finally without experimentation  music would simply not be as we know it today Results of experimentation also means putting a personal stamp on your performance and standing out from the crowd  something that promoters and punters alike look for in artists ERGONOMICS Photo Credit Basketball91com Like musicians DJs  live performers can benefit highly from ergonomics This knowledge both greatly improves performance on the short term and will aid your health over years of performing Stretching equipment height and laptop access all fall under this category Stretching As with many physical activities stretching can lead to prolonged endurance and keeping yourself injury free while improving your peak performance You would be surprised how quickly you can improve with simple muscle stretches before and after practicing compared to practicing alone The recommended muscles to stretch are your upper chest front neck muscles shoulder muscles and forearm muscles Stretching these muscles for about thirty seconds is recommended As with all stretching it is important to make sure you dont strain yourself and if you have any physical constraints consult your physician DJ Equipment Height While it may not seem like a big deal now the last thing you want is to have back trouble in your old age Adjusting your equipment to a comfortable height can not only save your back but also improve the level of your performance over a short period of time In order to achieve a neutral position for your wrist in relation to the control surfacerecord platters their tops records jogwheels  faders should be approximately even with your navel Using an adjustable table or roadcases is a smart way of raising your equipment to this level Laptop Access The placement of your laptop is an important factor as having easy access can improve your performance workflow While there is no one correct placement of your laptop there are a number of things that you should avoid If you have to bend down to read the screen your laptop consider Increasing font size on your DJ software Upgrading to a laptop with a larger screen Investing in a laptop stand DJTTs store crew recommends the Crane Stand Pro but there are many options Its better to access your laptop at a comfortable height with a few steps over to the side than to constantly crane over your equipment Consider moving your laptop around in your setup until you find a comfortable position to access it This will prevent you from having to crane your neck or body While this seems like an obvious thing to do it is surprising the amount of DJs that fall into the bad habit of craning their body even if  its for a few seconds at a time Read More Laptop placement can mean the difference between Serato Face or not ORGANIZATION Organization keeps you motivated your morale high and can produce better results in a shorter time While it might seem boring to some being organized can actually lead to more exciting performances as being in total control of your performance is arguably more satisfying than trying something completely spontaneously You cant impress a crowd with a spontaneous technique if you dont know how its going to sound All the top performers organize themselves in many aspects  including their practices music collections and traveling tools Efficient Practice Setting up your equipment in an organized fashion can produce better results and improve your creativity One way to achieve this is to reorganize your equipment desk table Try this simple practice exercise Clear everything off the desk you practice on Write on a sheet of paper how long you aim to practice for what you aim to practice on and the minimum amount of equipment you need to fulfill this practice Only put on the desk the equipment you need to achieve your goal Practice Sticking to this method of practice your performance ability will improve rapidly Start basic and as you improve increase the challenge Sometimes having excess equipment can be distracting if you initially didnt plan on using it Deciding half way through your practice that you want to add something else to the practice will ultimately stall your goal You can always plan your next practice with your new idea but it is important to discipline yourself to complete one goal before advancing to the next Aside from tips from Invisibl Skratch Pickz weve never had a complete article about practicing Let us know your practice tips in the comments  Music Collection While this is a well documented area organizing your music collection can lead to an improved workflow increased creativity and a better knowledge of your music base When building organization you obviously should consider factors like BPM range harmonic keys genres and routines when organizing your tracks Creating a number of different signature routines can make you stand out among other DJsperformers Editors Tip Ean always talks about having his sets organized in small batches with two or three songs that go well together well noted in your crates playlists so that youve got built in routines into your standard playlists Consider what platform to organize your music in whether that be in drive folders iTunes or your preferred performance software as each have advantages and disadvantages Take a look at previous DJTechTools articles for ideas on how to organize your music Utility Travel BagCase Knowing exactly what is in your bag is key when touring travelling or even playing local gigs Packing your utility bag to go to a gig is a something most performers are familiar with Organizing it correctly can save you unwanted embarrassment if done right First write out a list of all equipment cables music you plan to use at your gig With this consider the items on your list that are most likely to fail Among the most likely to fail may include USB leads Audio cables  Power leads Cartridge needles Packing a spare of each of the most likely items to fail is a good measure to combat a DJs worst nightmare silence You can prove to be the hero of the day should another performer forget a cable There is only so much preparation you can do Should your laptop fail remember all technology has potential to fail Even the best turntables have potential to fail Read More Always make a list to make sure your DJ gear is all there EXPERIMENTATION New techniques in all areas of music are often discovered through accidents or experiments This can be the most frustrating exciting side of music Discovering or developing a new technique can be a way of having your own personal signature or contributing to your area of music Live Performance with computers is a relatively new area compared to DJing and is therefore a means for discovery Plan For Experimentation While techniques from accidents can not be planned experimentation most definitely can While planning when to practice include time or a session for experimenting For example if you practice five times a week include a little time in each practice session for experimenting or if you practice six times a month change add one session to experiment  It is important to remember that experimentation has potential to lead to produce little or no results Therefore  plan it as a little something extra after the more essential practices that do lead to results As a reference point experimentation should include doing things that you have never tried before Learn The Rules  Then Break The Rules is essential to have a fundamental understanding of what you plan to experiment with If you dont know the rules you cant break them on purpose For example if you have no idea what you are doing you can end up damaging part of your equipmenSo learn as much as you can and then innovate collaborate but dont decimate If youre not already familiar with the basics of your equipment search for tutorials online or read the included manual Take It Further With Software The more advanced functionality of a performance software the more experimenting you can do But even with the most advanced performance software they all have their ultimate limitations There are a few applications that are designed for developing new ideas from scratch that dont require lines of codes but rather graphical coding With more codebased solutions the possibilities are endless and provide a great platform for expanding your ideas If you havent before take a look at PureData Free  Max MSP a must for Ableton users and Processing VJs will be very interested in some of the opportunities here although its way more code instense bit more  to see if either can offer you something more Editors Note Weve seen a number of advanced software applications built in Max MSP  including an upcoming application from Mad Zach himself WRAP IT UP Whether you decided to introduce stretches before and after your practices or simply organize your travel bag more efficiently youre bound to reap the benefits when you are on stage at your next gig performing Feel free to discuss these tips below in the comments or contribute your own Keith Brady is a MSc Music Technology postgraduate that

Size  0 seconds Transport Cue Play Mode Instant Loop Recorder Record Latency 3ms or as low as possible without CPU overload ADDITIONAL TIPS TO MAKE YOUR REMIX SETS ROCK Although you probably dont want to turn Quantize on when youre recording into the loop recorder it helps to have it on when you launch the loop recording This will help make sure your loop recording starts precisely on the first beat My solution was to map a button right below my start loop button to momentarily turn on Quantize I would press it just before I start the loop recorder and then let go once I start recording my cue point juggling Use the EQ and effects to make your loops sit well together in the mix For example I cut the bass out of hihats acapellas etc You can also use trailing effects like Delay to extend the length on short blips Tune your loops and samples to fit together in the same key by using your tempo pitch bend Remember you can also resample multiple tracks from the Remix Decks down to one

footer icon Youtube footer icon  Get hooked up   Traktor s Remix Decks successfully stirred up a lot of interest and a fair amount of controversy but now that the dust has settled is anyone actually using them  The reality appears to be that many DJs including myself are having a hard time finding simple ways to integrate them into a regular DJ set Even Chris Liebing mentioned his lack of inspiration around them in Fridays informative interview  Today we ve got a creative recipe for Remix Deck success that only takes five minutes to cook up  and all it requires is a little special sauce Here are the problems we currently see with using the Remix Decks extensively in a standard DJ set It takes a lot of time to create a Remix Kit with individual loops and parts There are not many quality pre made kits out there to play with Its not practical to arrange a song manually using loops a la Ableton without follow actions and other more sequencer esque tools Placing a lot of sounds over finished tracks starts to sound very busy Triggering quantized loops can get a bit boring for you and the audience So what is my suggestion for spicing up the decks Well for starters  the Traktor Remix Decks can be used as very expressive sample players You can play up to four cells at the same time polyphonic control Each cell can have its own voicing and looping characteristics They can each be routed to effects and individually affected They can be quantized down to the 1 4 note This makes them really good for the next evolution in cue point juggling of samples over songs Add in effects on top of the samples and you have a recipe for fun remixing on the fly  Route Beat Repeat and space effects to individual samples to create morphing patterns that float over songs Route the effects to cut out parts of your master track when you trigger a sample at the same time This last bullet is the key point By double mapping buttons to trigger samples and turn on effects at the same time you can create effortless remixes and chop up any song at will Here is just one example Double map a big drum roll sample from a famous song and a beat repeat  on your playing track at the same time Drop it in anywhere for a polished sound that seamlessly remixes any track Simply put when activating a sample cell apply a complimentary effect to the underlying track on that same button press so everything sounds glued together and very much like a real remix THE SPECIAL SAUCE Executing something like this is relatively simple in regular MIDI land You would double assign a button to launch a clip and turn on an effect at the same time The problem of course is that its only possible to control all remix deck cells through HID using the F1 controller or Midi Fighter 3D  The MF 3D is the only controller today that sends out HID and MIDI at the same time  making these double mappings very simple on all remix decks Fortunately you are not totally out of luck The top four cells in each Remix Deck are MIDI assignable so everyone can experiment with this concept on any controller right away  REMIX DECK MAPPING FOR MIDI FIGHTER 3D Here are some ways you can get involved win some cool stuff and show us your skills Instagram Upload the best creative photo of a disco ball to Instagram like the one by eangolden above  tag it with remixthis and djtechtools and you could win a Midi

Scratch Live Virtual Dj and Traktor Several techniques are used by DJs as a means to better mix and blend recorded music These techniques primarily include the cueing equalization and audio mixing of two or more sound sources The complexity and frequency of special techniques depends largely on the setting in which a DJ is working Radio DJs are less likely to focus on music mixing procedures than club DJs who rely on a smooth transition between songs using a range of techniques Club DJ turntable techniques include beatmatching phrasing and slip cueing to preserve energy on a dancefloor Turntablism embodies the art of cutting beat juggling scratching needle drops phase shifting back spinning and more to perform the transitions and overdubs of samples in a more creative manner although turntablism is often considered a use of the turntable as a musical instrument rather than a tool for blending recorded music Professional DJs may use harmonic mixing to choose songs that are in compatible musical keys citation needed Recent advances in technology in both DJ hardware and software can provide assisted or automatic completion of some traditional DJ techniques and skills Examples include phrasing and beatmatching which can be partially or completely automated by utilizing DJ software that performs automatic Synchronization of sound recordings a feature commonly labelled Sync Most DJ mixers now include a beat counter which analyzes the tempo of an incoming sound source and displays its tempo in Beats Per Minute BPM  which may assist with beatmatching analog sound sources Software has also been written to assist with the identification of musical keys for use in harmonic mixing which analyze computer media files for musical content and automatically determine the musical key citation needed edit History Gnome globe current event svg This section is outdated Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information Last update The history section of this article needs to be updated starting with the end of 1999 to the start of 2011 May 2012   edit 19th century to 1920s In 1892 Emile Berliner began commercial production of his gramophone records the first disc records to be offered to the public In 1906 Reginald Fessenden transmitted the first audio radio broadcast in history also playing the first record that of a contralto singing Handels Largo from Xerxes 3 The worlds first radio disc jockey was Ray Newby of Stockton California In 1909 at 16 years of age Newby began regularly playing records on a small transmitter while a student at Herrold College of Engineering and Wireless located in San Jose California under the authority of radio pioneer Charles Doc Herrold  4 5 We used popular records at that time  mainly Caruso records  because they were very good and loud  we needed a boost we started on an experimental basis and then because this is novel we stayed on schedule continually without leaving the air at any time from that time on except for a very short time during World War I when the government required us to remove the antenna Most of our programming was records I ll admit but of course we gave out news as we could obtain it 4 Ray Newby Ive Got a Secret 1965 By 1910 regular radio broadcasting had started to use live as well as prerecorded sound In the early radio age content typically included comedy drama news music and sports reporting The on air announcers and programmers would later be known as disc jockeys In the 1920s juke joints became popular as places for dancing and drinking to recorded jukebox music In 1927 Christopher Stone became the first radio announcer and programmer in the United Kingdom on the BBC radio station edit 1930s 1950s  A young woman plays a gramophone in an air raid shelter in north London 1940 In 1935 American radio commentator Walter Winchell coined the term disc jockey the combination of disc referring to the disc records and jockey which is an operator of a machine as a description of radio announcer Martin Block the first announcer to become a star While his audience was awaiting developments in the Lindbergh kidnapping Block played records and created the illusion that he was broadcasting from a ballroom with the nations top dance bands performing live The show which he called Make Believe Ballroom was an instant hit The term  disc jockey appeared in print in Variety in 1941 6 Prior to this most music heard on radio was live most radio stations had an orchestra or band on the payroll 7 8 The Federal Communications Commission also clearly favored live music providing accelerated license approval to stations promising not to use any recordings for their first three years on the air  6  Many noted recording artists tried to keep their recorded works off the air by having their records labeled as not being legal for airplay  It took a Federal court ruling in 1940 to establish that a recording artist had no legal right to control the use of a record after it was sold 6 In 1943 Jimmy Savile launched the worlds first DJ dance party by playing jazz records in the upstairs function room of the Loyal Order of Ancient Shepherds in Otley England In 1947 he claims to have become the first DJ to use twin turntables for continuous play and in 1958 became a radio DJ at Radio Luxembourg Also in 1947 the Whiskey a Go Go nightclub opened in Paris France considered to be the worlds first commercial discotheque or disco deriving its name from the French word meaning a nightclub where the featured entertainment is recorded music rather than an on stage band  Regine began playing on twin turntables there in 1953 Discos began appearing across Europe and the United States The postwar period coincided with the rise of the radio disc jockey as a celebrity separate from the radio station also known as a radio personality  In the days before station controlled playlists the DJ often followed their personal tastes in music selection DJs also played a role in exposing rock and roll artists to large national audiences While at WERE  1300 AM  in Cleveland  Ohio  DJ Bill Randle was one of the first to introduce Elvis Presley to radio audiences in the northeastern US  9 Notable US radio disc jockeys of the period include Alan Freed  Wolfman Jack  Casey Kasem  10  and their British counterparts such as the BBC s Brian Matthew  Radio London s John Peel  and later in the 60s Radio Carolines Tony Blackburn 11  Freed is commonly referred to as the father of rock and roll due to his promotion of the music and his introduction of the phrase rock and roll on radio in the early 1950s  Freed also made a practice of presenting music by African American artists rather than cover versions by white artists on his radio program  Freeds career ended when it was shown that he had accepted payola a practice that was highly controversial at the time resulting in his being fired from his job at WABC  12 In the 1950s American radio DJs would appear live at  sock hops and  platter parties  and assume the role of a human jukebox They would usually play 45 rpm records  featuring hit singles on one turntable while talking between songs  In some cases  a live drummer was hired to play beats between songs to maintain the dance floor  In 1955  Bob Casey  a well known  sock hop  DJ  brought the two turntable system to the U S  Throughout the 1950s payola continued to be a problem and one result of the payola scandal was tighter control of the music by station management  The Top 40 format emerged where popular songs are played repeatedly In the late 1950s sound systems a new form of public entertainment were developed in the ghettos of Kingston Jamaica Promoters who called themselves DJs would throw large parties in the streets that centered on the disc jockey called the selector  who played dance music from large  loud PA systems and bantered over the music with a boastful rhythmic chanting style called  toasting  These parties quickly became profitable for the promoters who would sell admission food and alcohol leading to fierce competition between DJs for the biggest sound systems and newest records edit 1960s and 1970s In the mid 1960s  nightclubs and discotheques continued to grow in Europe and the United States Specialized DJ equipment  such as Rudy Bozak s classic CMA 10 2DL mixer began to appear on the market In 1969 American club DJ Francis Grasso popularized beatmatching at New Yorks Sanctuary nightclub  Beatmatching is the technique of creating seamless transitions between records with matching beats or tempos Grasso also developed slip cuing the technique of holding a record still while the turntable is revolving underneath releasing it at the desired moment to create a sudden transition from the previous record This technique had long been used in radio By 1968 the number of dance clubs started to decline most American clubs either closed or were transformed into clubs featuring live bands Neighborhood block parties that were modelled after Jamaican sound systems gained popularity in Europe and in the boroughs of New York City In 1973 Jamaican born DJ Kool Herc widely regarded as the father of hip hop culture  performed at block parties in his Bronx neighborhood and developed a technique of mixing back and forth between two identical records to extend the rhythmic instrumental segment or break Turntablism the art of using turntables not only to play music but to manipulate sound and create original music began to develop In 1974 Technics released the first SL 1200 turntable  which evolved into the SL 1200 MK2 in 1979 which  as of the early 2010s  remains an industry standard for DJing  In 1974 German electronic music band Kraftwerk released the 22 minute song  Autobahn   which takes up the entire first side of that LP  Years later Kraftwerk would become a significant influence on hip hop artists such as Afrika Bambaataa and house music pioneer Frankie Knuckles  During the mid 1970s Hip hop music and culture began to emerge  originating among urban African Americans and Latinos in New York City The four main elements of Hip Hop culture are graffiti DJing breakdancing and MCing rapping In the mid-1970s the soul funk blend of dance pop known as disco took off in the mainstream pop charts in the United States and Europe causing discotheques to experience a rebirth Unlike many late 1960s clubs which featured live bands discotheques used the DJs selection and mixing of records as the entertainment In 1975 record pools began providing disc jockeys access to newer music from the industry in an efficient method In 1975 13 hip hop DJ Grand Wizard Theodore invented the scratching technique by accident In 1976 American DJ editor and producer Walter Gibbons remixed  Ten Percent  by Double Exposure  one of the earliest commercially released 12  singles  aka  maxi single   In 1979  the Sugar Hill Gang released  Rapper s Delight the first hip hop record to become a hit  It was also the first real breakthrough for sampling  as the bassline of Chics   Good Times laid the foundation for the song In 1977 Saratoga Springs NY disc jockey Tom L Lewis introduced the Disco Bible later renamed Disco Beats  which published hit disco songs listed by beats per minute  tempo as well as by either artist or song title Billboard ran an article on the new publication and it went national relatively quickly The list made it easier for beginning DJs to learn how to create seamless transitions between songs without dancers having to change their rhythm on the dance floor Today DJs can find the beats per minute of songs in the BPM List edit 1980s In 1981 the cable television network MTV was launched originally devoted to music videos especially popular rock music The term video jockey or VJ was used to describe the fresh faced youth who introduced the music videos In 1982 the demise of disco in the mainstream by the summer of 1982 forced many nightclubs to either close or change entertainment styles such as by providing MT style video dancing or live bands Released in 1982 the song  Planet Rock  by DJ Afrika Bambaataa was the first hip hop song to feature synthesizers  The song melded electro hip hop beats influenced by Yellow Magic Orchestra with the melody from Kraftwerk s  Trans Europe Express  In 1982 the Compact Disc reached the public market in Asia and early the following year in other markets This event is often seen as the Big Bang of the digital audio revolution In the early 1980s NYC disco DJ Larry Levan known for his eclectic mixes gained a cult following and the Paradise Garage the nightclub at which he spun became the prototype for the modern dance club where the music and the DJ were showcased Around the same time the disco influenced electronic style of dance music called house music emerged in Chicago The name was derived from the Warehouse Club in Chicago  where resident DJ Frankie Knuckles mixed old disco classics and Eurosynth pop  House music is essentially disco music with electronic drum machine beats The common element of most house music is a 4 4 beat generated by a drum machine or other electronic means  such as a sampler   together with a solid  usually also electronically generated synth bassline  In 1983  Jesse Saunders released what some consider the first house music track   On    On  The mid 1980s also saw the emergence of New York Garage  a house music hybrid that was inspired by Levan s style and sometimes eschewed the accentuated high hats of the Chicago house sound  During the mid 1980s  techno music emerged from the Detroit club scene  Being geographically located between Chicago and New York  Detroit techno artists combined elements of Chicago house and New York garage along with European imports  Techno distanced itself from disco s roots by becoming almost purely electronic with synthesized beats  In 1985  the Winter Music Conference started in Fort Lauderdale Florida and became the premier electronic music conference for dance music disc jockeys In 1985  TRAX Dance Music Guide was launched by American Record Pool in Beverly Hills  It was the first national DJ published music magazine  created on the Macintosh computer using extensive music market research and early desktop publishing tools  In 1986   Walk This Way  a  rap rock collaboration by Run DMC and Aerosmith  became the first hip hop song to reach the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100  This song was the first exposure of hip hop music  as well as the concept of the disc jockey as band member and artist to many mainstream audiences In 1988 DJ Times magazine was first published It was the first US-based magazine specifically geared toward the professional mobile and club DJ Starting in the mid 1980s the wedding and banquet business changed dramatically with the introduction of DJ music replacing the bands that had been the norm Bandleaders like Jerry Perell and others started DJ companies such as NY Rhythm DJ Entertainers Using their knowledge of audience participation MC charisma and crowd pleasing  repertory selection the wedding music industry became almost all DJ while combining the class and elegance of the traditional band presentation New DJs as well as bandleaders with years of experience and professionalism transformed the entire industry edit 1990s During the early 1990s the rave scene built on the acid house scene The rave scene changed dance music the image of DJs and the nature of promoting The innovative marketing surrounding the rave scene created the first superstar DJs who established marketable brands around their names and sound Some of these celebrity DJs toured around the world and were able to branch out into other music related activities During the early 1990s the Compact Disc surpassed the gramophone record in popularity but gramophone records continued to be made although in very limited quantities into the 21st century particularly for club DJs and for local acts recording on small regional labels In 1991 Mobile Beat magazine geared specifically toward mobile DJs  began publishing In 1992 MPEG which stands for the Moving Picture Experts Group released The MPEG 1 standard  designed to produce reasonable sound at low bit rates  The lossy compression scheme MPEG 1 Layer 3 popularly known as MP3 later revolutionized the digital music domain In 1993 the first internet  radio station  Internet Talk Radio  was developed by Carl Malamud Because the audio was relayed over the internet  it was possible to access internet radio stations from anywhere in the world  This made it a popular service for both amateur and professional disc jockeys operating from a personal computer In 1998 the first MP3 digital audio player was released the Eiger Labs MPMan F10 Final Scratch debuted at the BE Developer Conference marking the first digital DJ system to allow DJs control of MP3 files through special time coded vinyl records or CDs  While it would take sometime for this novel concept to catch on with the  die hard Vinyl DJs  This would soon become the first step in the new Digital DJ revolution  Manufacturers joined with computer DJing pioneers to offer professional endorsements  the first being Professor Jam  aka William P  Rader  who went on to develop the industry s first dedicated computer DJ convention and learning program  the  CPS Computerized Performance System  DJ Summit  to help spread the word about the advantages of this emerging technology In 1999 Shawn Fanning released Napster the first of the massively popular peer to peer file sharing systems  During this period  the AVLA  Audio Video Licensing Agency  of Canada announced an MP3 DJing license  administered by the Canadian Recording Industry Association  This meant that DJs could apply for a license giving them the right to perform publicly using music stored on a hard drive  instead of having to cart their whole CD collections around to their gigs  At OAB Audio we started out running mobile discos across the West

Specifications  Enhance Your Worship with Properly Installed quality Church Sound Equipment It doesn t matter which instruments churches decide to use in their music ministry because the ultimate aim is to play music that people find uplifting and to praise God If your worship team needs good church sound equipment  amp ndash  cables  speakers  cords  mics and mixing boards  get advice on which equipment can perform the task effectively There are musical professionals  as well as sound engineers  who help to customize systems to each church s unique Church layout  their budget and performance needs  Sound systems amplify the voice of the preacher and the performances of the singers and musicians  They are available in varying degrees of complexity   depending on the level of amplification and mix of sound you re looking for Putting Together Unique Sound Systems The systems installed may include distributed AV systems which will enable the sermon to be heard in other areas of the church  Induction loop systems may also be installed so that people who are hard of hearing can hear the sound properly They also assist with video and audio recording for churches that record their services for public broadcasting Improve Your Church s Sound System Professional audio engineers realise that a properly installed sound systems will complement the sermons and performances for the congregation and the individual  They can work exclusively with churches  providing solutions for room acoustics as well as training others to use the equipment  If a church sound system experiences audio interference  its purpose is no longer that of upliftment and inspiration but rather  frustration  Feedback and unbalanced mixes harm the atmosphere of a service  possibly causing interruptions and ruining the flow of the service Get The Acoustics Right Before You Buy Sound Equipment The acoustics of the church will determine the sound level of the pastor s voice the organ piano and drums and other instruments Music professionals know all too well that a venue can spend a fortune on sound equipment but if the acoustics are not right there will be echoes and complaints about the loudness The focus of church sound equipment is to provide a clear and even reproduction of sound throughout the entire building Good Acoustics Trained Operator  Quality Sound Equipment A Recipe For Success High quality sound can only be achieved with high quality audio equipment and a knowledgeable technical sound system operator Church sound systems can either be pretty basic or more complex These sound systems come with a multi channeled stereo mixer board and a number of features such as digital delay audio distribution mixing and splitting reverb phantom power supply as well as recording equipment A monitor system is needed for singers on stage to be able to keep the same tone as the other singers The positioning of the audio control mixer board also requires careful consideration  Most of the time  the sound controls and operator need to be located where they are in the same acoustic environment as the congregation This will achieve high fidelity amplification of sound before feedback occurs There s no doubt that church sound equipment can either enhance or distract from the worshiping experience  A well designed sound system should never be a distraction and should sound natural so that worshippers can concentrate on the clear delivery of both the pastor and the musicians Fastrak opened its first store in van der Walt st Pretoria in September 2003

Headphones  Dj Mixers  Mp3 Controllers  Turntables CDJ CDJ is a term used to describe a CD player that allows analogue control of music from CDs usually using an emulated vinyl control surface The term CDJ is derived from the first controller the CDJ 500 from Pioneer Electronics though the term is now used generically to describe any CD player designed for DJs use This system is suitable for DJs who prefer using CDs  compact disks  because of the added benefit that CDs have over vinyls The benefit is that more data songs are stored on a cd than a vinyl which typically has very few tracks and therefore necessitates carrying around of bags and bags of heavy vinyls when going to perform at a gig Controllers  software controllers This system is suitable for DJ s who prefer using computer software to mix because of the added benefit that hard drive disks  HDD   have over cds   vinyls  The benefit is that more data songs are stored on a hard drive than both cd and vinyl which necessitates carrying around cd or vinyl bags whereas laptops or computers are light and portable and can have thousands and thousands of songs in mp3  wma  AIFF or wav formats  Another benefit for DJs is the access to many sound and processing effects that dj s enjoy using to enhance their mixing sets The DJ digital controllers aim to emulate the traditional mixer turntable CD turntable set up  Most controllers come with shuttle jog dials that mimic turntable control of an audio file though with slightly less accuracy The use of DJ digital controllers with DJ software allow for a more mobile and compact system Usually the use of a DJ digital controller lets the DJ not have to transport more expensive fragile heavier analog equipment With the use of the controllers there is no need to use CDs or records This is particularly beneficial to Mobile disc jockeys who are increasingly using computer based DJ set ups for this particular reason Audio Visual equipment has made a great impact upon the lives of people around the world The incorporation of audio  sound and images visual has brought with it many forms of useful devices including T V  DVD players  cellphones  computer devices  movie cinemas etc  At Aliwal Sound we recognise the power of this medium for conferencing  presentations  entertainment  business and education and therefore supply a wide range of audio visual

Lightsounds  for the efficient service and good advice on which equipment to hire for my daughter  Emily s 19th birthday party  which was held at home  including in the backyard  I hired 2 Wharfedale powered speakers which we were able to play music directly from an ipod  Also we hired 2 led parcans which were set to change colours with the music and a water effect light  as well as using a minilaser  which gave a fast moving pattern of light dots on the side of the house   We were careful to mount the minilaser so that it wouldn t shine directly into any anybody s eyes The lighting effect in the backyard was spectacular and it set the mood for an excellent birthday party Thank you to everyone at Lightsounds for helping make my daughter s party so successful Lightsounds Gold Coast is under new ownership and requires a full time employee to make the store the best the Gold Coast has ever seen  If you have excellent knowledge of professional entertainment LIGHTING and SOUND then this is the job for you We need a highly motivated  hard working team member with excellent customer communication and people skills to make this store happen  It s not just Sales HIRES  PRODUCTION and INSTALLATIONS are very important too The Ashmore store is now well stocked  with more equipment arriving daily  so we need a long term team member to grow the business  The store is open 6 days a week  Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm and on Saturday 10am to 3 pm  You will need to work most Saturdays but will receive a day off during the week for a total of 5 days per week Not all work would be at the shop delivery and set up of hire gear is just part of this fantastic position so a manual drivers license is a big plus When it comes to monitors accuracy is crucial  Let s be honest decent monitors can sound great in your project studio  but truly accurate monitors will ensure your mix sounds great everywhere else  whether you re listening in your car  on your portable media player or on your home stereo  Thats why the cost effective SR active monitors from Gemini were designed to offer genuinely precise audio that truly reflects the state of your mix  Times change

PEAVEY IPR2 POWER AMPS now exclusive to GRAVITY SOUND & LIGHTING WAREHOUSE 0315072463

IPR2™ power amplifiers, designed for years of reliable, flawless operation under rigorous use. The groundbreaking IPR2 series utilizes an advanced design that allows Peavey engineers to dramatically reduce weight while increasing output power, reliability and thermal efficiency. IPR2 Series amplifiers are designed with a resonant switch-mode power supply and a high-speed class D topology that yields the highest audio resolution and efficiency available. This revolutionary amplifier offers the sonic superiority and unsurpassed reliability for which Peavey is famous, in an extremely efficient and lightweight design. Advanced technology and extensive protection circuitry allow operation with greater efficiency into difficult loads and power conditions. The DDT™ (Distortion Detection Technique) circuitry ensures trouble-free operation into loads as low as 2 ohms. DDT protects drivers and ensures that sonic integrity is maintained, even in extreme overload conditions. The IPR2's high-efficiency design allows the amplifier to operate at very low temperatures, and does not require massive heat sinks to cool.
