You are a DJ and your life is defined by the music you create. But if you are a DJ without gigs…where does that leave you?

Every DJ knows that it is one endless grind after another to get gigs. If you live in a big city you have to compete with the well-known DJs plus the imports and the up and comers. If you live in a small town there are probably a couple of big fish taking up all the gigs. So what do you do?

Contrary to what you have been told there are things you can do—totally within your control—to improve your chances of getting gigs. The question is, are you prepared to do them? Continue reading “How To Get The Best DJ Gigs” »

It is your job as the DJ to not only get the party started, but also to actually create the party. Plenty of DJs email me wanting to know what they can do to better promote themselves. Why? The simple answer is that while most clubs will bring their own set of revelers, you also want people to show up to hear you do your thing…right?

But you’ve tried the tried and true social media methods and still you haven’t really increased the number of people that show up for your gigs. Well there is good news; there are things you can do—easy things—that will help you get more people showing up to your gigs with friends. Continue reading “5 Tips For Better DJ Promotions” »

4 Things That Don’t Determine DJ Success

What It Takes For DJ Success

smush female+DJs+rock 4 Things That Don’t Determine DJ Success

You don’t just want to be a DJ; you want to be the best DJ possible if not ever. But you’re young and inexperienced and you think there’s no way you’ll end up like well-known DJs topping the charts and raking in the big bucks. Why? Because you’re nothing like them, of course.

That couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure every field is made up of certain groups that define it—usually male and white—but that doesn’t mean you have to fit that mold to be a major success. Continue reading “4 Things That Don’t Determine DJ Success” »

Are The Risks Worth The Savings?

smush digital+piracy+for+DJs Is It Okay To Use Illegal Downloads?

As a struggling artist you no doubt realize that you have to find a way to make things work without a lot of money. Doing this often means skimping on necessities or using older equipment for longer than you would like. But that is the price we have all paid in order to do a job that we love.

Since digital DJing has been growing in popularity from one year to the next, the controversy that follows piracy or illegal downloads or whatever you want to call it, continues to grow. DJs aren’t in agreement on this issue so as a newbie you’re probably not sure either. That’s okay; as long as you understand the pros and cons you can decide what to do for yourself.

Do You Need To Define Yourself As A DJ?

Do You Know Who You Are As A DJ?

smush how+to+be+a+dj Do You Need To Define Yourself As A DJ?

Over the last few weeks I have received a lot of emails from up and coming DJs wondering how they can define themselves as DJs. Does it come down to the genres you prefer or your style of dress? Or is what defines you as a DJ how you approach your gigs and other commitments within your profession?

Honestly the answer is who knows? There are plenty of ways in which you can define yourself, but as long as you leave people with a positive view of you, that is really all that matters. It’s important that you don’t get stuck on things that don’t really matter because making in this industry is difficult enough without borrowing trouble.

5 Ways DJs Can Boost Your Online Presence

How Visible Are You Online?

boost online DJ 5 Ways DJs Can Boost Your Online Presence

In this day and age the digital DJ has to be a Jack (or Jill) of all trades. If you don’t have the entourage or star power of the biggest names in the DJ world, then you also don’t have a social media specialist, publicist and merchandising expert on the payroll to help keep your name and music in the spotlight. Many artists take the “all press is good press” method of publicity, but without a steel-fisted agent or manager on speed-dial it would be virtually impossible to convince promoters and club owners that your bad boy persona is a reliable bet for a gig.

The good news is that there are things you can do without a long list of experts on hand, to boost your online presence and increase your fan base. The bad news is…you have to do it yourself.

So how can you boost your online presence as a DJ? Keep reading to find out! Continue reading “5 Ways DJs Can Boost Your Online Presence” »

How To DJ – From Artist to Businessman

Are You Wearing Both DJ Hats Effectively?

smush be+a+pro+dj How To DJ – From Artist to Businessman

As much as we DJs would love to live the life of world-famous musicians and movie stars, the fact is that most of us will never have an entourage of people at our beck and call. What’s my point, you wonder, other than making you feel bad for your life choices? My point is that as DJs we have to be both the creative and the business sides of our careers. Unless you have an agent, manager, webmaster and a whole host of other professionals in the family…these tasks will all fall to you.

As daunting a task as this seems, it is actually very doable.

DJs for the most part work at home except when we’re performing and that means your home and your office are virtually the same space. How you set up your work space and living space will help you make the transition from working to chillin’ easily. Continue reading “How To DJ – From Artist to Businessman” »

6 DJ Gigs Waiting For You

Are You Being Creative About Finding DJ Gigs?

smush rock+star+fashion+show 6 DJ Gigs Waiting For You

If you are anything like I was back in the day, when I was a wee young DJ, you probably envision your future career mostly taking place inside the dark, loud and drink-fueled walls of a night club or bar. That’s the dream for most DJs; the thing to which we all inspire.

But what you might not know is that there are tons of ways to get the DJ gigs you crave even if they aren’t in the city’s most popular hot spots. Whether or not you are struggling to get regular gigs doesn’t matter; what matters is how willing you are to set aside what you think and DJ does and where, and accept that to make it in this industry you may have to take a different path than your idols.

To help you figure out that path, we’re going to talk a bit about the non-club DJ gigs out there waiting for DJs to take’em on. Continue reading “6 DJ Gigs Waiting For You” »

DJ Equipment Review: Numark NV for Serato DJ Controller

Is the Numark NV just another pretty face?

smush Numark+NV+review DJ Equipment Review: Numark NV for Serato DJ Controller

It seems as though every other day my inbox is filled with press releases and adverts touting the best new piece of DJ equipment to hit the shelves. They swear it will change the face of DJing and rarely is that the case. Needless to say I’ve become pretty cynical about the claims made by the manufacturers of DJ equipment. However that doesn’t stop me from reading through all the specs and occasionally stopping by the nearest electronics shop to try them out.

When I got word that Numark was releasing the NV with a few outrageous features, I admit that my curiosity was piqued. So let’s dig in and see if it is as awesome as it seems. Continue reading “DJ Equipment Review: Numark NV for Serato DJ Controller” »
