DJ tips or techniques

  • Scratching: Opening and closing the cross fades becomes more difficult the moment you try to move it faster. First move it slowly then go on increasing the speed, by this you can perfect the scratch.
  • Develop a style: The tunes/songs you chose to play and how you play them work together to define your Dj-style. Your style should be expressed depending on what dub you are playing and in the type of music that is expected of you.
  • Respect the crowd: Developing your style is extremely important; however you still need to have in mind the type of people you are playing for.
