Last week, Movin 92.5 Radio, DJ Kel gave a playful, but very useful guide on how to become a successful DJ in today’s industry.
Even though the video was portrayed in a more playful way than serious, it was still very informative. Any aspiring DJs who are having trouble deciding where to begin, check out the video below:
The Most Notable Steps To Success:
1.) Have a set ready at ALL TIMES. When you are prepared, you’ll be able to be called last minute, which is a MAJOR KEY.
2.) Remember the 3 buttons on the main equipment. PLAY, SYNC, and the DRINK TICKET dispenser (to keep your audience happy).
3.) Protect your equipment at all times. A lot of drunk people holding drinks might be around your expensive mixing equipment, and you need to protect that.
4.) Make sure that you NETWORK as much as you can. Friends in this industry are essential if you want to move forward.
5.) Last, but DEFINITELY not least, keep your audience as happy as possible. Play your hottest mixes.
