Who/What is a DJ

Have you ever been listening to a song, and all of a sudden, another similar song comes into your head and you say to yourself " these songs would sound great together!"?


Well you might just have what it takes to be a DJ,

A DJ is an entertainer whose main job is to play and manipulate 2 or more music sources in order to keep a constant flow of music .


DJ’s are mass consumers of music, their job is to introduce and share new music with others. It can be a form of expression like any other musical instrument and to learn to DJ takes mastery and persistence.

Mixing

DJ Mixing is a process or combining tracks in order to keep the music playing constantly. The illusion of keeping a continuous song, comes from rotating playlists by switching back and forth between two music (players)sources. There are many ways to fade in the next track and prepare it to be heard by the audience and this is the art of DJ mixing.

The music sources include technological devices such as, Vinyl Record Players, CD Players, MIDI controllers, Computers and MP3 Players . There are no written rules in regards to what equipment you need to use to be a DJ, and new,  intuitive ways to DJ are constantly being created. There are however some standards that must be met in order to call yourself a professional. Knowledge is potentially powerful, especially when dealing with expensive equipment. This site aims to give you that knowledge in a dynamic way.
