Music manager | Do you need one?

By 8 April 2016 386 Views No comments

Music manager as a job title is becoming more and more redundant these days. The only music artists who need a manager to get their music career sorted are those who travel the world on a daily basis and can't afford the time to arrange gigs and DJ jobs themselves. Understandably it all comes down to efficiency versus gain. If your alias and persona would make more money with a music manager by your side after the cuts are taken, then having one is for you. If not, then you can easily do the work yourself and save during your growth period as a DJ.

    DJ mixers, which is best | Numark DM2002X Pro Master

    A mixer is a tool used for DJ sets and mixes.

    1. Loading multiple tracks into the DJ mixer is the first thing one must do.

    2. The DJ then uses the mixer to create an overlap of two different tracks.

    3. This overlap created generates a whole new sound and ambience of the known tracks.

    DJs use mixers to add originality to their transitions between tracks. At some point of course, the playing track is going to end and silence is not acceptable at a party. For this reason, the prepared up and coming track next on the playlist must be brought in seamlessly. DJ mixers help the performer keep the flow of their DJ set going.

    Some tactics are swift transitions by simply quickly jumping into the next track at the right time e.g. a drop or after a bridge. This can generate quite an effect for the crowd and usually results in many cheers when mixed well.
