    True story…

  • http://www.facebook.com/j.c.vice Jason Vice

    Coming from the background I started in… Its sad to see hype take over skill. Just stay true to your craft an you will at least be able to say I got up there and came correct my way. who cares about joe blow, he might have hype but that fades quickly if other djs bring it proper. Educate the people, the true people know a wack dj when they hear them. Those that don’t care didn’t come for the entertainment anyway they just want to get trashed and act a fool. I had a guy (redneck) tap dancing to house music. that made my night right there…

  • TRLA

    Being a DJ I love listening to other DJs, So I went to an Ultra Club one day to find that the DJ there was rocking out to itunes. In between second pauses and all… It was sad day…Its actually been a couple sad days as this happens all too often

    …very good article Joey! I work in a very big city, a place where back in the ’70s and 80′s, if you blew a mix, you were fired on the spot. The art of mixing does not seem important now as it did then. But to me, it still is as important and is the one fundamental standard requirement every DJ needs to know how to do well. If one cannot mix, they should get off their decks and sell their equipment.

    I just got hold of this great article and I want to just say that is true! @ Yuma AZ theres a local club that actually told me that they didnt care about the djs cuz they knew the club was hot and getting pack because it was the greates thing ever lol now lets get to the dj that are playing there, this guys actually make their mixes @ home and go to the club and press play, yep thats it just press play and get paid is very sad to see this happening that dj in the top club dont even care plus the owner thinks he is going to have the bad@ss club ever for ever lol

  • http://www.d-jam.com D-Jam

    Great article, but I personally think when a venue or promoter asks for what they ask for in that example…then DJs should simply stay away.

    Working DJs should be weary of when a venue/promoter clearly wants a real DJ and when they just want some quick easy means to make money. People who know what they’re doing and are serious about making money never skimp on the DJ…even in mainstream venues and events. They want the guy who will make for a memorable evening and thus keep CONTINUED customers coming in.

    I also think good promoters only need to rely on a DJ to bring a crowd when it’s a known headliner. The promoters who do squat and yet pressure unknown locals to bring them a crowd are a joke and DJs need to stay away from those crooks.

  • MariosEvagorou

    Another great idea is when you give out cds, they should be printed with your logo on and probably an interesting mix name. Another great thing is to give out 2-3 different mixes so as to make it more interesting for the fans. They will say ”This guy really is a professional”. I remember one night at a club when the DJ gave us some of his mixes. It was just a CD in a thin transparent case with his dj name hand written on the CD. I threw it once i got home! To make good marketing and self-promo is key!

  • DJ Creole

    Great article.
    Just wanted to say, perhaps the bar in question is a latin/salsa bar, where mixing isn’t just less expected, in most cases it’s positively frowned upon. In some bars, I can mix a string of RnB, reggaeton and merengue and it goes down great with the crowd. In others within the same core market, tune selection and flow are more important since each pair of dancers want to switch up partners after a song or two.

    Sadly, I’m seeing this more and more in Ibiza too, the difference being that it’s not even the following that the bars/small clubs are looking for from a DJ, just someone who will do the job for free. As stated in the article, this is now devaluing the market, and it’s getting to the point where it’s almost impossible to earn an honest living from DJing here. If I have a problem doing a 5hr set for the money they offer, there’s 50 other guys that will gladly step in and do it.

    Networking is such a big part of DJing that it seems impossible to get ahead these days without being able to talk the talk. I’m terrible at networking, and I know it, but I’ve been lucky in that I have people who are prepared to support me and big me up in whatever I put my mind to.

    My solution to not finding the gigs I was looking for was to just create them myself – I found a club that wasn’t doing so well during the season, and presented an idea for a party to the manager, with the idea being that it was a party for workers first and foremost, and tourists second. The manager was sceptical at first, but I persisted, saying that however many people he got in, it would be more than the 6 people hanging around the bar he currently had, so what did he have to lose? On the first night, we ended up with the club 3/4 full with absolutely no promotion other than word of mouth. Understandably, the manager is now over the moon, and is bending over backwards to make sure our night is accommodated to the fullest every week, along with letting me and the other residents for the night host the back room on Fridays and Saturdays!

    Yes, running your own night is scary, there’s a lot of planning and promotion involved. But the plusses far outweigh the minuses when you take into consideration that it’s YOUR night that you can play for as long as you want, or sit back and let someone else play, and still get paid regardless!

  • DJ who wants to be anonymous…

    “” •Find opening DJs or off-night filler djs for low cost or free. The best way to keep your job is to manage the clubs bookings- duh! “”

    That’s exactly what went wrong in the place that I work. The manager didn’t want to deal with booking of the DJs, so he told one of the “older” DJs to manage it. This guy always books the nights that fits himself first, and we are lucky to get our regular nights. All the other DJs are better at juggling, beatmatching, songs selection, i.e. DJ skills, but the “mixing optional” guy that’s in charge of booking gets all the jobs!

    So remember, as stated in the article; “” The best way to keep your job is to manage the clubs bookings- duh! “”, yeah, that might be true, but remember to fair.

    WooDz – You hit the hammer on the nail for me. Excellent advice.

  • jonelsorel

    I have a 11 year dj-ing background (mostly in Canada) and live in Constanta, Romania, in a city where 90% of dance clubs play the same music, as if they all tune in to a radio station. Here, unfortunately, people don’t care what the dj brings to the stage. The entertainment part at a club is mainly fulfilled by showing up and showing off (clothes, car, wallet – if you’re a male, and mainly clothes – the less/tight/more expensive – the better, if female). It’s nearly impossible for upcoming dj’s to find a place at the decks in this city (Romania 2nd biggest, and also a summer resort), as everything revolves around the principle “it doesn’t matter what you know, but whom you know”. This article actually made me realize I wasn’t insane by thinking a true dj in 2010 should actually bring some magic back to playing music for crowds. What’s sad is that there are many cities in which that kind of paper ad could easily be found.

  • http://alchemymarketing.com Alchemy

    Its all to true. I’ve done marketing, consulting and management for some bigger spots in NY NJ area and its upsetting to see that owners care less and less about keeping people in the room and more and more about bringing a crowd. And it reaches all sides, bartenders, entertainment you name it. The industry is quickly falling apart due to people who have either lost the love for the industry or sat in a bar long enough to think they can own one. Just keep your heads down and push through it because pretty soon the people who rely on their staff to bring them the crowd will be out of the game and only the time tested owners/managers who know the value of quality will be left standing.

  • Jay cee

    The U.K is full of laughable DJs that do the I will play for free, little do the managers know that there sending the business down the toilet, thinking by saving £200 a week is a good move I know my market and I stick to it, and how can people not mix when things like traktor can do all the donkey work for you ?

  • Aaron

    I remember when DJ slots started being given to people who could bring the most people to an event. That’s when the sirens started ringing that you didn’t necessarily need a lot of skill, you’d just had to be popular.

    While there are smaller pockets of events out there that still provide a list of people that are good at what they do and pull an organic crowd, the reality is, promoters need the coin to cover the event and make money off the bar, so it’s back to the old ‘who you know, not what you know’ argument.

  • http://www.woodzmuzik.com WooDz

    I’ve noticed that lately comments on forums and Youtube seem to be focused on technical skill being the be all and end all to DJ’ing. That years of slaving on your decks in the bedroom will reward you with an instant prime-slot at a top club in town. The reality is; being the best bedroom DJ in your town counts for nothing if you can’t read a crowd. I feel some budding DJ’s really don’t get that the job is about pleasing others and not hours of self-endulgent, egotistical, hedonistic pleasure. My point being; you need to get out and start doing real DJ work. If you feel you’re not competent or good enough to ask for money then start by playing music at a bbq or at a friend’s party. If you’re playing the wrong stuff they’ll tell you to what they want to hear. You’ll either respond to their wishes or you won’t. Make the right decision and you will gain your first fans. Forward on a few years and your now earning good money doing Weddings every weekend and gaining more fans. You facebook is full of people you don’t really know and your YouTube channel and sound cloud is getting over a 1000 hits a day. You should have mastered the basics of mixing by then but your crowd awareness will be second to none.

    So if you’re a DJ who can pull a crowd, the chances are you’re a good DJ.
    You’ve probably spent a good few years naturally building up a fan base you respect and enjoy what you do. You may not be able to juggle, scratch, or know what hamster and crabs are. But you know how to get a crowd going can beat mix and more important to a club, know when to send the crowd to the bar.

    So ask yourselves really; what’s better, a DJ who knows what to play and where to take the crowd or some anally retentive tech geek who only knows the set he’s slowly mastered over the past 2 years?

  • audiomontana

    [quote comment="34020"]It’s the same for me. Where I live, I can’t get ahead because every club and bar wants to hire ‘personality DJs’. I.e. someone talking bollocks on the mic for six hours over the same shitty playlist being played in every other bar and the level of mixing is pretty shocking. The only reason any of them keep a crowd is because there’s zero actual choice. No matter how many times I’ve spoken about actual professional events (two, maybe three DJs, Differing styles of music coming together to make a show of the night) no-one wants to know.
    It’s quite depressing really.[/quote]

    this is sad — and the solution is sad but effective — don’t play in those venues. Change your service and take advantage of a niche market.

    Also — Since the number of crap djs — a very high percentage is growing and saturating the market — your service is going to be worth less. There is an unlimited number of people who will — play for 25$ or drink tickets. If you can you should create a service that is worth more — provides facilities that a Dj can’t provide. And don’t bend over on price. A good local band should make 750-1500 a night in a 200 person club. A dj is no differant. if a person is spending 35-50 dollars on four drinks and a cover charge — the entertainment needs to get paid out — if entertainers don’t hold themselves to higher standards then we all become devalued. If you offer your service for less than what it costs in gas, equipment, music, plus the average cost of time for those that work around you — you are devaluing the service.

    again sadly I don’t see this situation turning around in the small bars scene — these facilities don’t care about the quality of entertainment because they don’t care about people. They care about drink sales. And its best not be involved in an unhealthy atmosphere such as that.

    ad is sad, but painfully the truth at some clubs… As Dj’s…..
    Can we learn?, well we do ever day.Can we get better?,technology helps.Can we be a brand?, up to fans and crowd one can get.Can we be special?,use your creativity and equipment.Want to make a show?, use all of the above and have the right music. But Hopefully some club and bar owners read this too and realize that good DJ’s are availble and it does not need an ad like this.Specially the hottest club in town….

  • Anonymous

    Nice article,
    Does anyone agree that the facebook thing is wearing a bit thin now with venues seeming to rely on this as a solve all form of marketing.
    Initially it was a novelty and not everyone used it now everyone uses it so where is the advantage anymore!
    As far as bringing fans this is great if you can generate a large fan base but I suspect that in some djs get hired as they can bring along 100 people in some cases whilst pissing off the other 400 customers.
    Just because the dj knows alot of people does not automitically make hime a good dj!
    The standard of dj has not really gone up in fact in some cases the hours are alot longer and the gigs pay less than they did 10 years ago whilst everything else including the cost of living and fuel for the car[to get to the gig] goes higher
    To a degree it is the responsibility of the venue to promote the night and get people in and the responsability of the dj to entertain them and get them coming back for more.
    Just my 2 cents

  • http://lesterhein.com Small City Boy

    Just this past weekend I experienced something similar – I put down a set that had the dancefloor going pretty well. I finished my set and handed over the next DJ.

    The club owner came over and asked me if I’d like to do another set – I said sure. The guy after me started playing some seriously trippy stuff, which the crowd wasn’t feeling at all. He emptied the joint out faster than a bottle of Jack at an AA meeting.

    So I missed out on getting to play another set!

  • http://www.djmoonie.co.uk DJ Moonie

    Sadly the club scene is like this the world over. No one actually cares if you are a great DJ, the age of celebrity has gone mad. People are famous for being.. famous!

    Its a bit chicken and egg. You need a crowd to get into clubs where promoters have the place locked down.. but to get the following in the first place, you need exposure..

    Fortunately there are some ways to crack this, and many good points made in this article.

  • http://www.djmadwax.com DJ Mad Wax

    great article – it would have been nice to have such resources back in the day.

    Concerning building up your audience and brand, I couldn’t agree more with passing out mix CDs or USB keys that are branded with your DJ name and contact information.

    Obtaining e-mail addresses or getting people to sign up for a mailing list in a club will be next to impossible – people are there for a good time, and the only folks who will sign up are true music fans that dug your set (not 90% of the audience)

    But if you give them a leave-behind, your chances of your target audience remembering you, or even connecting with you via social marketing avenues is all that much greater, ESPECIALLY if they had a good time at your night.

    Good luck to all you cats who are out there still doing it. Finally, I’d like to point out I sometimes intentionally leave “shoelaces in the dryer” in digital DJ Mixes, much like producers insert “record crackling samples” in music, because there is nothing more anti-septic to me than perfect beat mixing and phrase matching.

    peace and bass

  • bigbarcelona

    Thank you for the article.

    Not only it hit all the right points… without a doubt this are good tips for people to follow.

    One thing that I might add is pick the right opening Dj.

    I was at one night club in Chicago about 2 months ago and not only was this club not getting much business during this night… but the opening DJ was for a lack of a better word… ATROCIOUS!

    He played one good song that had everyone dancing… but the next second, he played a song that the crowd was not feeling at all, played 3 more songs that got much worse as they transition from one to the other and those terrible decisions got people walking in and walking right back out of the door!

    Not only that… but the mixing, beatmatching and blends were completely off target.

    It was a disaster and they lost at least 20 to 30 people… until the house DJ finally step in and took over at around 12am which was to me a little too late. At least he was able to keep everyone else that was there around until the club close.

    Before getting an opening DJ… people need to make sure this individual is an expert in song selection, how to read the crowd, blend, mix, beatmach and transition.

  • Lunchbox4u_6

    I’m new to the scene, but I’ve spent a lot of time reading forums and doing research. The one thing that I see is that not all DJs see themselves as musicians. Just because you play someone elses music doesn’t make you less than, so don’t let that get into your head. I’ve been a bass player for 15 years and I’m really good. I’ve been very successful and made a nice bit of money doing it, and I made that money as a bass player in cover bands. Even when playing someone elses stuff there is still room for your expression. Nobody tells jazz players they aren’t musicians because they’re playing Monk and not their own stuff…it’s all about personal expression and that’s how I approach DJing. It’s another set of tools, another instrument for me to use, but it’s still me using it, it’s still me and my musical expression.

  • Buckner

    I had conversations (with club owners in s ca) similar to that ad headline over ten years ago, so this isn’t new. It is still f’d up, though.
    The only real answer is that some of the djs have to become owners.

  • Mike

    Great tips man. I think an email list is the most important thing you can get as a musical artist. So you could combine two of your tips: Instead of just giving out mix CDs, you make them conditional… Your audience cant get a mix tape unless they write their email address on a sheet. That way you build up a list to send out email blasts WHILE getting your content out. UhCanIhearA win-win?

  • rodcat

  • Mark C.

    Its sad how the scene would hire a dj cause he can just pull and not the skill he has. Trust me theres a lot here in NYC that dont care about your talent, but cares about the money. I mean I know you need a crowd to go somewhere, but what about the time and money you spent to get good at what you do. I love this articles and it really does hit you that this is the reality now.

  • http://www.digitaldjtips.com Phil Morse

    Yeah, that ad is truly awful!

    Having said that, some of the best DJs I’ve had the pleasure of either knowing or listening to have not been able to mix to save their lives. Tune selection and programming is still the most important thing. Back in Manchester in the late 80s beatmatching was optional – but the city still had a music and club scene the world was jealous of.

    Nice, enthusiastic, inspirational article there Joey.

  • A-Dag-Io

    Congrats to Joey, great debut article!

    What made me wonder was: why the hottest club in town needs adverts like that. If it was my club, I’d knew who’s hot in town and who’s not…?
    When you as a DJ already have a big name then there’s no real need for promotion – let the people do the talk. Give ‘em food for talks, dress different but smart, and always keep an eye on your own style. One very important thing Joey mentioned is: “Do sound tech work – make sure the system is running smoothly and sounds great all the time”. Soooo true!!!
    At first sight sound accuracy doesn’t seem to matter in the first place, as we can see even mixing is optional. But be sure: if your tracks AND mixing sound better than the rest, people will notice!

    Any newbie to the scene will need all the promotion he can get, and social networking is a bonus that can’t be underestimated. For my personal taste I wouldn’t give out free mix Cds, but releases on soundcloud or mixcloud sure are a good way. If people are really interested, they will look for your mixes.

    And btw: you can learn reading the crowd whenever you’re in a club. Watch who’s dancing and why, store that in mind and when you’re playing, keep a flow on the floor as only few people will be dancing to more than 4-5 tracks.

    Thx again to Joey !!!

    I agree with the article for the most part except for the djing for free.. Keep in mind that the opening dj & closer is a very important ingredient to having a good club nite. If the opening dj sucks, people will leave early and your club will look like a ghost town scaring the rest of the people that show up early. And if the closer sucks donkey balls, that will be the last impression that will be on people minds when the leave.

    Save yourself the drama and do some research to see who are good djs and know what it is to open/close a nite. Everyone should get paid even if its $40.00 for gas money.

    Worked with a DJ that had this sexy tough guy marketing, that somehow his crowd understood, even when he stood in front of a premix-dvd for an hour of his 4 hour set.
    Even though I hated it, to other haters I said, ‘well go on and get yours… he’s got his’

    You hit the nail right on the head joey . Today there are alot of people out there that think getting into the dj world is a cake walk. This is a perfessional carrer that most of us take very seriously and in todays age alot of people especially club owners will not hire a dj with out a following. You get one chance ,if your lucky two chances to impress them. Always do you home work before your gig as well research the club talk to people that have dj there before , and please go through your music before your show. Try to be different as well ,bring somthing new to the crowd so people say holy shit who is this guy, so they keep comming back.

  • Anonymous

    Great timing for this article. I’ve been thinking about the philosophy of DJing lately. When I see DJ’s at clubs now I get what they’re doing and they may be doing it right technically, but they aren’t doing much else. I think a lot of people don’t realize that you are a performer. In this day and age where everyone can have the same set list, the thing that’s going to make the biggest difference is YOU. It’s YOUR JOB to get people hyped. The music will do that to a degree, but you have to use your energy to really get people moving.
