DJ Spangles likes to make people happy, loves music and loves to dance. She’s pretty good with technology and had a long-held ambition to try her hand at DJing.
Here’s some advice she got from a friendly DJ, DJ Motlette, when she was starting out. It was good advice and that’s always worth passing on.
1. Worry less about your mixing – much more about what will make up your set
2. Who is the audience?
3. Gear – keep it simple – what are you most familiar with? Ask if there’ll be asound-tech there at the beginning of the night to help you troubleshoot
4. If you have time to practice, rent the gear to have it for a few days to testit out beforehand
Most importantly ….. “Play for the audience, not for yourself.”
So she rented some gear, taught herself to use it and never looked back.
