Techniques to Improve Your Live Sets

As part of our ongoing discussion of the art of DJing, we gathered a list of 12 DJ tips to raise your game to the next level. Figuring out the basics of DJing is one thing, but learning how to work a room with subtle changes in programming and sound is something else. While there are no real rules to DJing, what follows is a list of tips based on years of professional experience.

12419306_10153334424559109_7885140585605597568_o

Practice and Prepare
Practice makes for much better DJ sets than a free-form approach to the craft. Having only a vague idea of what you are going to play usually makes for a halfhearted DJ set. You’ll find that accomplished turntablists and groove-riders alike have all spent countless hours perfecting their sets. We don’t necessarily recommend pre-planning the entire set, either, but you should get to know your options before you show up to perform. Spend time to find tracks that mix well and make playlists of those tunes for future use. Make different kinds of playlists for different kinds of gigs. Finding tracks that work well together takes time, and it rarely happens spontaneously at the gig.

Be Flexible
As a professional DJ, you don’t necessarily have to take requests. You can stand by your own style and selection. However, playing more than one specific style of music is a great way to gain more opportunities for performance. There are many types of clubs and events, and different types of crowds. Try to find selections from your music collection that will work with these different groups.
“Don’t necessarily divide playlists by genre, but by mood (aggressive, melancholy, soulful, etc.) and energy (slow, medium, fast). If you practice enough and have good taste it will all come together naturally.” ~ Rx

Plan in Three’s
This method of organizing music for DJ performance that I’ve found to work extremely well in my own experience. When planning a set, I like to find three records that mix well together at a time. Optimally these three records can all be played together at once, or they can transition into one another. Next I find another set of three. Then another. Eventually, I have a stack of records that are organized by how they mix together, and I start to organize those sets of three into a flow of slow to fast/mellow to banging. I like to have 60 tracks selected for an hour of performance. I won’t play all 60 (I usually play around 20 tracks per hour), and I won’t always play those exact mixes (spontaneity is still important in a DJ set). I have options that go in every direction, and I know that I can find my way from one type of sound to another while staying deep in the mix the whole way. Knowing this allows me to be much more experimental on-the-fly, and it always works better than if I don’t plan.

Identify Your Audience
Identify your audience before you perform. That statement doesn’t just mean to find out what they like and play it — you need to know the size of the room you’ll be playing in, the number of people who may be there, and the general musical vibe for the evening. Know your time slot and what frame of mind people will be in when you are playing. Part of being a DJ is sonic empathy: take the time to know your audience and identify what sort of sounds they might connect with to keep them engaged. Read More…

Pioneer’s latest CDJ controversy

Pioneer DJ have finally released the Rolls Royce of a DJ setup they had teased earlier in the year to a curious crowd at NAMM 2016. While most fixated on the five large screens attached to the top, a few were asking the questions about the other new features included in and around each device. Guest contributor Dan D-Squared shares some insight on what Pioneer DJ was thinking behind this over-the-top design of a product line.

The big question everyone is asking themselves is “Who is this system for?” and the blunt answer is “probably not you.” At least not yet.

This system is really for the most popular “big name” DJs of the world, who are playing on the biggest stages and sound systems week after week. This TOUR-1 system is for:artists whose booking costs are in the tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands for a 1-2 hour set artists who have a full crew they tour with, including a FOH engineer, lighting technician and visual team DJs who have specific requests for equipment on their artist riders which if not met by the show provider means a breach of contract and a cancellation of their performance on the spot. These DJs all exist, and we all have many opinions about their talent, the music they play, and if they deserve to be where they are. Playing On Multi-Million Dollar Soundsystems

So why is this new rig a big deal to you if it’s not something most DJs will get a chance to even touch? The TOUR-1 appears to be made to give the crowds of people at these huge shows the absolute best experience possible. When paying upwards of $500 a ticket to go to a festival, your level Read More…
