Essential Tips On How To Become A DJ (Good DJ)

There are djs and there are DJs, with the invention of the internet, Mp3 downloads and software like Serato it is easier than ever for someone to get into djing, I should rename this post How To Become A Good DJ. I have been Djing for over 24 years, but my love of music started from when I was a small boy. In the forthcoming weeks I will give you tips on how to become a DJ and on how to become a god DJ.

Tip 1 – For The Love Of Music

To become a good DJ I think music needs to be in your soul, heart, run through your veins, in your genes, I think you get the gist lol. I grew up in the early 70’s and before I even started DJing I was always listening to the radio, the weekly countdown on a Sunday to find out who was No 1, heavily into musicals like Grease, Flashdance, Breakdance, Marry Poppins and TV programmes like Soul Train, Top of The Pops & Fame. I was there at the birth of Hip Hop some of my favourite artist were The Fat Boys, Roxanne Shante, LL Cool J & Run DMC. Later on in life I became interested in Bollywood films, programs like Dance Energy, Yo MTV Raps, music videos and listening to over DJs (mix,scratch & play)  and following the whole clubbing scenes (Happy Hardcore, Acid House, Jungle, Drum & Base, Speed Garage, Garage. Grime, UK Funky, Dubstep)  Basically common sense tells you that to become a DJ you have to like music, I think to become a good DJ you have to love & live music, it needs to become part of your everyday life and I feel listening to different types of music through various mediums like i mentioned above greatly helps in your journey to becoming not only a DJ but a great DJ.

Tip 2 – Have An Ear For music
