    Default Help about EDMs

    I am in highschool and bought a Traktor s2 as my first controller. I have been DJing all of our highschool house parties especially now that its Spring Break. I recently got an offer to do an underground rave because of how i always lean to EDM style music when i play. I have never played for a rave and i am not sure what to expect. I have a midi fighter in the mail also. Any tips?

    My personal opinion, you are 15, "underground rave" s are probably not a good place for a minor to be.

    Unless underground means your parents basement. Then, I wish you luck.

    don't sweat it, its just a over sized house party? or are you actually booked as in djing for money?

    either way.... if they came to you, you must be doing something right at those house parties and they wanted you. just do the same you have been doing

    Something about your story tells me that your "Underground Rave" isn't actually an underground rave. If you're playing EDM to high-school kids, some Electro House should do you well, throw in some top 40 remixes, some Skrillex and add wubwubs to taste.

    Being a NRG/Psytrance DJ, I do plenty of Raves. There is absolutley nothing to sweat as long as you are responsible.

    1. Find out what equipment is being used to host the Rave, and know if your controller/laptop is compatable with the resident setup.
    2. Practice your set in dim lighting, Raves are dark and rarley do you get proper lighting.
    3. Promote the s**t out of your event for the best possible turnout.
    4. Do not take any drugs or alcohol until after you have finished your performance.
    5. Take lots of pictures.
    6. Bring plenty of friends, but do not bring your GF or a date.
    7. HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!

    please don't call it a rave.. just creates an even more presence of suspicion towards the use of drugs.

    It's a party.
    step 1. Practice practice and practice till you see wavelengths and cue points in your sleep.
    step 2. Tell everybody and tell them its gonna be "ze bestest partttay of da year!" Project x style!
    step 3. don't drink the champagne, just spray it on hot chicks when you drop it into "levels"
    step 4. repeat steps 1-3
    step 5. don't bring that one friend who always gets really drunk, leave him at home.
    step 6. Get 2 hot sluts to dance on stage during your set.
    step 7. beatmash till you throw up. b*tches love their sh*t mashed.
    step 8. have fun dude.
    Beatslicing for the bitches
