Do DJs repeat songs?
Give them what they want! Repeating the same track is a different kettle of fish, however. If the crowd is digging a certain artist’s style, why not play a few of their tracks? However, not only do the other DJs here repeat the same tracks at will, some of them even play three tracks by the same artist in a row.
How do DJs make their mixes?
One of the best ways to get into music production is to start creating DJ remixes, DJ edits or mash-ups. A DJ remix or edit merely is taking one of your favourite songs and then editing and adding new elements, drums or instruments to that song to make it your own. In turn, helping make their DJ sets unique to others!
How do DJs pick their songs?
Very quickly after starting their set a DJ will gauge their audience. Then, depending on the direction the DJ wants to go, and the crowd’s energy, they will select tracks they know will get a good response. Often this will be steadily ramping the energy up, essentially getting more and more hyped throughout their set.
