    Default Rap DJ to EDM DJ

    What do I need to know to start being a good EDM DJ? Then what do I need to know to be a great EDM DJ? What's the main different between DJ'ing Rap vs EDM?

    I'm looking to step up my game. Help please ;-)

    If you aren't into it you will not be a "great" anything.

    From the sounds of it you have not found your "scene" yet so that would be a starting point.

    Mixing is mixing. Just find music you love and play it.

    Johnny you're a fool. LOL.

    I like rap, RnB but starting to like EDM. I like the energy. I'm just gonna try it and see what happens.

    Longer mixes between songs in edm, as opposed to quick cuts mixing hiphop. Longer intros, longer loops, more blending of songs.

    Intoxicated /adj./ When you feel sophisticated without being able to pronounce it.

    Back in 1998, me and my brother both said, "We should buy turntables." He was into Hard House at the time, as was I. One day after I bought my first pair of Technics 1200's. My brother told me "You mix Hip-Hop, and I'll mix House." However after about 1 month of practicing, I learned to beat match Hip-hop, that I started to learn to beat match House.
    Bottom line is you should mix what you want to mix. I've always catered towards being a House Party Dj, however my love is EDM. The best way to get into mixing EDM is find a few tracks you like, Learn from there and keep going!
    Btw... Jackintox gave the best summary!

    start listening to trap music and trap djs.
    I'm a fan of all things art. Music, film, photography, acting, dancing. Expression is powerful.
