Becoming a DJ, producer, or promoter is easy.
Now, I should explain myself before the mobs show up with their pitchforks. Let me elaborate.
To DJ, you need to play pre-recorded music to an audience. To produce, you need to combine sounds in order to produce an end product. To promote, you need to be put in charge of planning an event and attempt to get people to attend it. When explained at their most basic levels, there is no rocket science involved. So why do so many people get it wrong?
Of course, you know as well as I that there is way more to it. What’s hard is being a DJ that stands out amongst a sea of other DJs and builds a following. What’s hard is being a producer who creates music that is so good, people will seek it out. What’s hard is being a promoter that knows how to throw events that provide an enjoyable overall experience… for a crowd large enough that it turns a profit.
