Beginner DJ Mixing

I’ve written about having a passion for music, where to get DJ music, best DJ software, best DJ headphones and your first CDJ-mixer DJ set-up, so now I’ll get on with how to mix.

Beginner DJ Mixing – Creating Your First Mix

Whether you are using DJ software or mixing between CDJ’s or turntables the basic beginning DJ mixing principles are the same. You are mixing one track into another to create a continuous flow of beats and sounds. You want to mix them seamlessly so that it’s not apparent where one track ends and the other begins.

 

Beginner DJ Mixing

The idea is that you are putting together a number of smaller tracks to create one long track. Talking about tracks and beats, I like to think of the beats as the ties of a railroad track. The track is laid so that the train can travel upon it as the beats are laid so that all of the other sounds can travel upon the beats. When the train is moving there is a momentum. Imagine a dance floor with people full of energy dancing. If the music were to stop, so will the dancers and so will the energy. So think of the music not only as sounds but as a continuous flow of energy like a moving train.

Getting Your First DJ Gig – My First DJ Gig!

One of the most important things you need to do to get DJ gigs aside from constantly working on your DJ skills is to make friends with other DJ’s, Clubgoers, Promoters and Managers.

Honestly, when I first started getting gigs. I don’t think it was because I was a great DJ. I think it was because I was a nice guy with a real enthusiasm for music and clubs. Enthusiasm goes a long way in replacing experience and I see it again and again, a young dj who really seems to enjoy playing, even on computer being supported by his friends and the club management because he’s a nice guy or girl and has enthusiasm!
