If you’re thinking of taking a jump into the music industry, who better to learn from than the pros? We had a one-on-one with industry champions Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano to talk about five things you need to start DJ’ing. Here you go:

1. Listen To The Classics
Shazam classic DJ sets and music documentaries to add secret weapons to your classics collection.

2. Collect WAVs & AIFFs

Stop playing MP3s and start collecting WAVs and AIFFs; on a big sound system, you can really hear the difference.

3. Categorize In Moods

Categorize your music into several moods, like ‘build-up’, ‘peak-time’ or ‘tools’ to always have playlists to fall back on.

4. Investigate, Investigate, Investigate

Investigate the venue, time slot and line-up of every gig, so you know what to expect and how to prepare.

5. Preparation Is Key

Prepare the key points of your set, opening tracks, transition tracks and closing tracks, and you can fill in the rest.
