    Default How Long? From Bedroom to the Clubs

    Just a general question. How long did it take for you to go from your bedroom to the rocking the dance floor? I'm guessing many probably started DJing at house parties first then moved up from there. How was your first club gig and is there something you wish you had done or practiced more of prior?

    Just practise your ass off and when you think you are ready, go for it

    I think a usual time is about 4-12 months, however for some people they do their first gig after only djing for a short while because they know people.

    I've got a MacBook Pro and a Novation Nocturn that I use with Ableton Live... I'm looking for a VCI-100 at the moment but seem to keep getting outbid on eBay. Do you currently DJ at clubs where you're from?
