As a DJ who never knows what town he’ll be in from one day to the next you will need some killer DJ accessories.

smush DJ+equipment+review DJ Equipment Review: Numark NDX 500

Whenever we talk about DJ equipment we’re almost always talking about DJ controllers or software. But a surprising number of DJs are still working with their massive CD collections and therefore need something more.

There are plenty of machines available for DJs with plenty of digital music collections who need the DJ controller and everything that goes along with it. But the smaller number of CD-using DJs still presents a viable market for Numark and the others to target for consumption.

DJ Lessons Booking Gigs DJ Lessons Part III – Booking Gigs

One of the best feelings as a DJ is booking that first DJ gig. Whether it is your first gig ever, your first gig in your new hometown or you first DJ gig making the shift to digital DJing…it is an awesome feeling.

As a professional DJ there are many different people you will need in your arsenal. In the early days of your career as a digital DJ you won’t have those staples that are now commonplace in the DJ world—managers, agents and publicists. But there will also be a stable of people you come to rely upon to help you get your career up and running. The problem for most new DJs is that they either don’t know they need these people or they can’t seem to find them.

You will need to have a roster of people in the DJ world including promoters and venue owners, but you will also need a few people closer to home. I’m talking about artists. Whether they use spray paint, acrylics or clicks of the mouse you will need at least one artist who can help you be the digital DJ you want to be.

Why? Keep reading for the answer. Continue reading “5 Reasons Every Digital DJ Needs An Artist” »
