    Default Genre Played In Clubs?

    I'm looking at BeatPort, and there's a ton of Genres: House, Electro House, Progressive etc...

    What kind of genre would be best for clubs/gigs/beach parties/private parties?

    I need songs with drops that really gets the crowd going.

    thanks,

    What kind of food do they serve in restaurants?

    It depends on which kind, italian, frech, eastern, fusion etc.

    Same goes to music, different clubs aim to certain kind of music, maybe techno, maybe top40 maybe salsa.
    The question you have to ask first is where am I playing?
    Is it an underground cult club? Probably techno.
    Is it a house-frat style party? well, hip hop, top 40, commercial.
    Is it a cool but relaxed venue? deep house, house
    etc..

    Similian is right! It all depends on one's taste and style of music. I think most approved genre in this case would be something like "big room drops", that has heavy deep maddest bass with good melodies. For example:

    I'm fairly new to DJing, but it seems to me that if you approach it with the idea of playing in clubs, as opposed to having a love for a particular genre of music, then you're approaching it the wrong way round.

    I totally agree, thank you for the response.

    I didn't say I don't love any genre for say, but I'm a small time DJ, might sound stupid but I would 'like' to play at clubs, and when I go clubbing, everyone just waits for the "Big DROP"...

    For example I watch after party videos of say Tomorrowland, which is 'over-rated' and is too 'main-stream', but I love it. What genre is that?

    Ive gone through beatport, and I THINK after listening to alot of tracks and genres, that house is too 'calm', and techno is too hard.

    I may have answered my own question by finding the answer to be electro house.

    Can someone clarify this?

    cheers,

    The typical genre you'll hear any opener playing in most clubs is "Tech-House".

    I think he's looking for EDM big room festival genre.

    Try to find the main stage EDM festival DJ's playlists from their sets and buy them all on Beatport.

    Or go to Youtube, Soundcloud, Mixcloud or Be-at.TV and search for your favorite DJ's live sets and use Shazam.
