Being A Disc Jockey?
Mobile D.J./ Mobile Entertainer
Mobile D. J.
They take their equipment on the road and do gigs at Faculties, private parties, special occasions and so on. They use almost all types of disc jockey equipment such as karaoke equipment.
Mobile D.J.'s are entertainers also.
They get the crowd involved with playing games with all the music, singing, playing music and Traktor Kontrol S8 other celebration favorites which involve entertaining the crowd.
Mobile D.J.'s usually have a disc jockey PA system that they bring with them into the gig.
This allows the disc jockey to broadcast the audio being played. A PA system is composed of an amplifier and two speakers.
Club D. J.
It is the Club disc jockeys capacity to perform various types of songs and make it seem great that makes them stand out. That is why they get paid the big bucks.
To most it isn't a mystery why the club disc jockey is the most sought after D.J.. Among my favorite club disc jockeys that cross all categories of disc jockeying is D.J. Cash Money from Philadelphia, PA.. He has some of the fastest hands on the faders and Pioneer plx-500 turntables I have ever observed.
For their songs most club disc jockeys use Technics SL-1200/1210 Turntables. You Can now locate club D.J.'s using Final Scratch by Stanton or Serato Scratch Live by Rane. Club D.J.'s"play with the audience" meaning they have developed the ability to read the audience and know what tunes to play based on audience response.
This takes time to develop but as soon as you've mastered this step it permits you to explore fresh tunes in the club that you may not otherwise play as a result of inexperience. This is a great way to make a livelihood if you can find a home in a number of clubs.
Fight D.J. or Turntablists
They are a special group of highly skilled disc jockeys which do tricks with the turntables and mixer. Through the years of training they've been in a position to develop their abilities of scratching, mixing and above all beat juggling.
Beat juggling is when a D.J. can control two documents to the point at which it seems like he is creating one new defeat from two different ones. Because these skills are highly developed most combat D.J.'s can be a club D.J. or a cellular D.J. since the abilities cross all types of disc jockeying.
When you know which type of D.J. you wish to be you want to learn what kind of equipment disc jockeys utilize.
The Four questions any new disc jockey should ask before Purchasing any new equipment are:
Just how or in what capacity will I be using my D.J. equipment (e.g. club D.J., remixing, Denon DJ for celebrations )?
How much do I wish to spend?
Where will I purchase all of this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I actually need?
Each of the three kinds of disc jockeys that I mentioned above uses the same D.J. equipment for Traktor Kontrol S8 the large part.
