I have marked off my life list goal of learning to DJ. I am about to have my third gig of the year and have only heard good reviews from my past work. I bought my Traktor Kontrol S4 DJ system, learned how it works, and use it reguarly.
My first step was to practice. I spent hours learning the ins and outs of the buttons and knobs on my S4. It is a powerful mixer and I love it.
The next step was to learn the intricacies of electronic music and DJing. I have listened to hundreds of hours of DJ mixes to find what sets the best DJs apart from the rest. I have seen legendary DJs such as Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold, BT, ATB, Sharam, Robbie Rivera, and Sydney Blu live. I have tried to learn from their performances too.
Now, with my next gig lined up for Friday (that is two in two weeks) and a hopeful bar gig in the works, I would call myself a DJ.
Thanks to my friends and family who have been patient and supportive as I have learned to DJ and completed a long time dream.
