    Default What should I do differently?

    I currently sent in a mix to an event manager, and said: "You are really good, but I see many people doing the same thing as you, I want something different" I made a mix recording myself, any ideas on what I should do "differently?"

    Posting your mix would help.

    If you sent him that video, I think the fat that you stepped out for a bit ma have been an issue. But I think he may have been referring to just the mixing.

    I always assume that all promoters and such assume that us DJs know all the mainstream bangers and such. So I always make my mixtapes with songs that I personally like. Doing this shows your overall style and how you are different from the others.

    So yeah, I think it may have been the track selection.

    Agreed on the track selection...I don't really care for electro and I know all the songs you played. Next time go with the rest of the library not just the floor fillers. Not a bad mix though

    expand your library, find your style that makes your sets "YOUR" sets.

    What I mean on the rest of the library is go a bit deeper than the obvious tunes. Your mixing is fine, what I think the promoter meant is that what you are playing is the same as everyone else. Ultimately club DJs just play other people's music in a logical order, set yourself apart, play some stuff that you like that the non electro fan (like me) wouldn't know. A Dj is defined by his or her music selection to my mind.
