Perhaps you’ve just gotten your first DJ controller or set of decks, and you’re wondering… “now what?”
Just about every day, I get an email from (or meet) someone who is wide-eyed and excited about being a new DJ… and also completely lost about how to go about doing it. They want to get started, but it’s intimidating.
One of the toughest times for a DJ is at the start of their journey. It can be a lot to take in: what exactly is the DJ doing? What is their role? How did they find an audience? What do I need?
You will quickly find out that simply showing up at parties and banging out some killer tunes is not enough to cut the mustard. There’s more to the craft (and the business) than that.
