“Anyone can DJ” – many people say. But is this really so?

YES! Most people, seeing the performance of a DJ, believe that this is really not such a difficult profession. Especially when it comes to mobile DJs who play music at corporate events and weddings.

Actually, the technique of “disc riding” is really NOT that difficult. Especially if the person works with a modern DJ console, where the built-in computer is able to mix tracks by itself. So it’s not a big deal. If you’re not a vinyl DJ, you probably don’t do things like Scratch or traditional Beat matching. So, if you’re not a Scratch DJ, at this point we’d think it’s not much more than a computer or a jukebox.


However, this is NOT what we pay the DJ

for


YES, anyone can switch music back and forth in the same way that anyone can take a picture with their mobile phone or even bake the same cake using a recipe. But the true value of DJing depends on a few other factors, just like the other occupations mentioned above.

The value of a professional DJ


You pay the photographer not only to press the button on the camera, but to capture intimate and captured moments in the best light or with artificial lighting. You pay a baker not to mix the BL-55 dough and put it in the oven, but to make a great tasting, uniquely decorated pastry. The same goes for the DJ. You’re not paying them to ‘play music on Spotify’, you’re:

Carries the mood of the night, acts almost like a second coordinator


– The event DJ sets up the quality sound system, assesses the terrain and adjusts the acoustics required for the venue. So that it comes alive when the music plays and creates such energy that you and your guests feel good and dance the night away.
– The wedding DJ sets up the entire thematic music list, with which he draws complete musical arcs. He keeps the dance floor full all the time and doesn’t let the guests get lost.
So while it’s true that anyone can “push the buttons” of DJing, can they pull off an all-night party? You don’t just have to choose songs at random and hope for the best, because this requires many years of experience, experimentation and practice.

The TV repairman arrived, hit the corner of the TV with his hat and said:
– DONE, the price of the repair is HUF 20,005.
The customer laughs:
– How?? HUF 20,005 for a hammer blow?? I’m sorry, but how did this come out?!
– So that HUF 5 is the price of a hammer blow and HUF 20,000 is the price of knowing where to hit…

In this case, we pay not only for the act, but for many years of experience and knowledge. The acquaintance/college friend who wants to stand at the DJ booth probably doesn’t have this kind of routine.

Creating The Perfect Playlist Is An Art – And It Really Is!

Just think about it: as a DJ, your task is to compile a music list of 200-300. Does it seem like a lot? Feel free to count on 60-120 seconds of playing time. This is the length that will impress the audience and will ensure that you maintain continuous interest on the dance floor. The next music doesn’t even start, but the next one should already be there and the clock and the seconds are ticking. Let’s face it, this is quite a scary and stressful task.

The DJ often has to contend with (non-thirsty) guests who want to request tracks all night long. They smile, but inside they know that when they do, they will DEFINITELY crash the party home. – This may not be a good idea. You have to constantly consider and manage music. Always going 2-3 numbers ahead in your mind, so that you can cover the entire spectrum of the musical arc.

A wedding example

I was just playing music at a wedding, when a 25-year-old girl came to the DJ desk and asked me if I would play Ismerős arcok – Nélküled. At first I politely told him, “I’ll try to play it later,” knowing full well that I wasn’t going to play because that would totally kill the mood and I’d lose the crowd. But then he came up again and asked when it was. sad song, are you sure you want this?” To which the answer was: “Believe me, they like to cry!” Then he came in again and again to inquire. Finally, I politely told him that I would not be able to play the song, because it was not sure it would be too good an idea and it’s so hard to get a full dance floor back if we lose the partygoers. 5 minutes later someone taps me on the shoulder – it was the girl’s father. Yes, a A 25-year-old girl sent her father to me: “Why don’t I play your daughter’s music?” Then I said, “Okay, let’s press it!” I played the requested song and (as expected) the dance floor was immediately emptied.

What’s the point?

I told this story to make you realize that making a playlist is not just about picking your favorite songs – they will almost never work, even if they are good with taste, more popular music is selected. At events and weddings, people don’t want to test music trends. They want to party and dance. To sing familiar music. All generations, not just the young! Grandma also wants to get in.

Don’t leave it to chance! Choose a practical wedding DJ for your event / wedding. And if you want even more extra than that, choose a DJ who can raise the standard of the evening not only as a wedding / event DJ, but also as a sound and light technician! Request a free quote!
