Just try not to feel like you're auditioning for a lead role in a big movie or someth9ing; if youre asked to play, taht means that the person asking already knows and likes your mixing. When you screw up, smile and laugh, shaek your head like, 'it never ends', and continue on.

Most important thing to do is have fun




Quite inspiring, thank you for those words.

like others Said, Practice a LOT before going to the Stage will probably be the best idea (if u make flawless mixes in home then ur ready.)personally i don't see DJing as a Hobbie, if u do it, do it properly.


and yes, long ago i had a premature expose to a party. it sucked. it took me time to be Recognized again...          DJ of Sourcecode

I agree with Anyer. If you are going to do something, do it with passion instead of as a pastime.

I've been using Traktor for 6 years now and only since last week have I felt at home playing for a real crowd (200 people or so). They loved it, and so did I, although I felt completely drained afterwards. SO MUCH ENERGY, music feeling going to a whole new level. Got offered 4 gigs afterwards, so we'll see how it goes from here.

On the other side, there's the girl from next door who knows many, many, many people and goes "yeah some people invited me to play dubstep at a party in 3 weeks, please teach me how to mix". I can teach someone how to use Traktor, but I can't perform miracles. If your ego won't allow you to say no, even though you don't have any tracks to mix or any skills at mixing... good luck           My FaceBook psychedelic techno page, with news, videos, DJ sets and free releases:

Ah, that comment was definitely not directed at you! Because of what you posted I am now starting to see the role ego can play in DJing, so I was just applying that to the girl next door.           My FaceBook psychedelic techno page, with news, videos, DJ sets and free releases:

heh, first show i ever played i did a live set. it was horrid. i learned to DJ by throwing events trying my best to fake it (and i did a good job faking it) and now i'm a good DJ and people show up to my events and like my sets. nothing wrong with fakin it til you make it, long as it isn't horrible every time.           Doof Local

Don't jump in stage before you know a few things :
-Good selection of music and a good sense of equalization (we don't want to hurt the audience ears )
-Beat match as a plus I would say this is one of the most important steps , (once that you dominate this with a crew in front you can start enjoying the mix )
-Cue set: if you can easily set a cue
I guess what I'm trying to say is that make sure you understand the tools before jump into stage
- last for not least : mix all days !!!!

The not hurting people's ears is a huge thing that I'm surprised hasn't come up yet.

-have an exact clue of what you want to do, be sure you can do it on the gear available on spot
-shit happens: don't worry, you can always change your dj name to get another chance to perform

Always make sure you remember which CD is playing if you're playing CDs, nothin' lamer than pressing the wrong eject and making silence! Makes for LOLs for the other DJs tho!           I hate you, you hate me, we are all so hap hap happy!

Kinda offtopic, but one of my favorite dance floor moments was when a DJ was on Vinyl decks and someone was dancing so hard it was making them skip...the whole floor stopped dancing but he didn't, he was in the zone....I had to put my hands on his shoulders and go hey! dude! stop for a second!

EVERYONE busted out laughing, it was awesome.            If you want to make an apple pie from scratch...you must first invent the universe

Haha... I saw the exact same thing happen at a Carl Cox show years ago... This guys was just getting down like a wild man... Well he was about 250 pounds and up on stage as he was friends with the promoter. After it happen a couple of time Carl C. cut him so hard with his eyes the guy stop moving completly and slowly backed off the stage... hehe very funny

I did just that. I played for the first time for 150 people and had no experience at all. No one noticed my lack of experience because i perpared the set well and the mix, althought not beatmixing was almost flawless. I knew the tracks very well and how to put them without people notice the mix between the tracks People clapped at the end and came to be to congrat me for the great set. Even i, being my first time, got surprised, because technique was a think i didnt show that day ahah, oh well, good for me

Now i'm learning how to beatmix and the next time i'll play, will be much better.

One more thing, your technique as a dj it's not the only thing that matters, the choose of the tracklist and the order the tracks are played are essencial imo.
