    Hey everyone. I was wondering, what would be the best track to open a set (In your opnion) ? I know that beatport had a chart with the best openers and i got a few from there.

    Depends on what genre of music you play. I generally open with Tiesto-Chasing Summers, cause it has a very good buildup and an amazing drop, one of my favourite EDM songs of all time.

    think about your role in the set list. Are you an opener DJ? If so, this can sometimes be a tricky task. Many say finding good opening DJs is more difficult than skilled. An opener should gradually get the crowd going, and approach a tempo/energy that the next DJ will use. You can throw some bangers in there if you want, somewhere probably 60-80% in, but that's not really your role. consider this attitude when choosing your first song.

    I usually open with a slower BPM track, but with a real heavy eerie baseline.... something like.



    or maybe an Alex Niggman track
