RANDOMNESS: The 4 Types Of DJ: Which Are You?

"Successful DJing is all about bums on seats (well, feet on dancefloors, actually). The audience is an essential half of DJing. If you want any kind of success, you take this to heart and never lose sight of it. It’s woven into what a DJ does.

So where does that leave playing the music you like? Where does that put your tastes, your musical aspirations? How can you fit these things around keeping an audience happy? How and to what extent you do this depends on where you fall in “The DJ Quadrant”…"

I would agree find music that you love, its should be your personal mission to sort through all the music that you have access to and "program" an evening of listening enjoyment that would make you freak out on the dance floor.

I watched a youtube video from a trusted source (briansredd) the other night that reminded me of this.

A large system and happy dancers will smooth over the less then flawless DJ mixing short falls. But their is no escape from bad music selection.

Now by no means am I saying only play commercial stuff, but what I'm saying is that every track you put down should be the next best thing. You should be excited about the next track, heck you should be just bearly holding yourself together with excitement for what your doing. If you feel it, then your crowd will be feeling it. (That is unless your playing hardcore techno for an old persons home, then again I'm sure their are places in London & SF were that might go over pretty well.)
