what about people comming up to u and askin you to put them a song...isn't this very annoyin and especially when this person asks u 2 put him a song that cannot be played at thiscertain time...


after thirty years in this racket requests are a double edged sword since I am PRIMARILY a club jock I noticed recently is a sign or signs near "my Office" (DJ booth) stating NO REQUESTS. not sure if this is the same elsewhere but helps we are the entertainers, the musical adventurists, the social director for neighborhood nitwits. We should know our profession inside and out but cant hurt talking to customers and if they HAPPEN to request a song try to fit it in it certainly has helped attendandce on MY nights

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum. I'm a very very very old school DJ (started in 1977). I've been reading all of these great posts about club mixing and all of those principles are spot on (even back in the day), but I would just like to add one little fact. Yes, it is true that what you play and when you play it can make or break your night at the club, but one important fact needs to be mentioned. Just as important as what is being played is the level or how loud or soft it is being played. For instance, when the club opens up and people are streaming in, yes, they want to hear you, but, they also want to hear each other as they get settled in for a night of partying, so keep in mind, make it audible but bearable. If they walk in and get blasted by your beats before they can settle in, they'll probably walk outside to talk, meaning less money at the bar which means less money for you.

I feel the most important thing when club mixing is the secret that no pro djs will share. I am going to tell you now that most club mixes are made for 32 beat count transitions. this is the fail safe for smooth mixing with music you're not used to playing at least with vinyl that is titled club mix unless it has changed in the past few years! try it and tell me if this helps.

Hey,

thank you Double O, this is exactly the kind of information i needed.

I will have my first Club gig soon, and I've been little uncertain about how to act there, but this gave me some real good information.

Thanks again!

The 5 Main Techniques i use when doing club mixing
1) I make sure i know the setup of the club as far as if they got the own sound system,mixer,and where i will be positioned.
2) I identify the crowd that i am catering to for example is its a older crowd or younger crowd.
3) If Somebody is promoting the club i ask them what type of style of music they prefer because two heads are always better then one.
4) I use which ever playlist i feel is the most appropriate and start with the main 5 song that i feel are the most supreme
5) I make sure that not only the crowd have a good time but i have a awesome time along with them
