Tips for New DJs


Parties and events are nothing without a source of music and it can truly make or break the vibe of the night. As a new DJ in Bangkok, it’s important to not go in blindly and to research ways to make the most out of your set as well as information on booking procedures to remain professional. There will be roadblocks or speed bumps on the way, but practice makes perfect and there are plenty of tips to soak up.

Always make sure to pick a genre and a scene

There’s nothing worse than inconsistency and it’s important to find your niche and style as a DJ, because you will be speaking through your sound. Whether you’re a drum and bass DJ or more of a hip hop or industrial styled DJ, it’s important to know your niche, as you’ll be expected to deliver as such. If you are well versed within that scene, you will grow immensely instead of fading out into a vast sea of disc jockeys.

Be the scene; don’t let the scene be you

When you’re confined to one scene, style, or genre, you’ll inevitably fade out as trends change very quickly when it comes to music. If you’re versatile and well-rounded when it comes to adapting your set, you’ll be much more successful than someone who isn’t prepared for the next musical trend.
