PDJ 007 – Finding Your Sound (And Where To Look)

Welcome back, Agent, to episode 007 of the PDJ Podcast.

Episode 7 is a spiritual successor to a post I made a while back, titled “Having a “Sound” vs. Having a Genre“.  In that post, I talked about the idea of generally disregarding genre labels, and trying to build an overall sound that reflects you as a DJ and as a person.

In this session, we will dig a little deeper into where you might be able to look to help find and define your sound, and make it all your own.

In episode 7, we discuss:

  • How genre labels can create layers of abstraction
  • What actually determines the overall “sound” of a song or set
  • Why not everyone is interested in finding their own sound
  • The six places you can look to help define your sound
  • How this all applies to promotion
  • What a signature sound really is
