So, lets say you have found some kind of online dj mixer you are probably going to want to make a mix with it. You are probably going to be making this mix for somebody, probably a girl. Even if you re not making it for a girl, pretend you are making it for a girl. In fact thats my new first tip:
1. Make it for a girl.
Or Guy or whatever takes your persuasion, but making a mix for for somebody upon whom you are trying to make a good impression on, iny my experience makes for better mixes. Also as a life tip, as you will be investing vast amounts of money and time into a ‘hobby’ that brings scant reward to most involved, it might not be the worst idea in the world to have something a little extra in your ‘getting a girl’ armoury.
2. Make it for a girl
Another gret thing about making a mix for a girl is that you probably know her and would probably be embarrassed if she thought it was rubbish. This should help emphasize the line between, I’ve just recorded my first dj mix to I’ve just finished my first dj mix. The first thing you should do upon finishing a mix is listen to it, ideally in the software you’ve just created it in, as this will give you the chance to correct any mistakes as soon as you come across them. Only send the mix when it is a sure fire love potion. Its easy when making your first mix to get completely over excited, too lost in the daydreams of your beckoning superststar deejay career to notice those horrific mistakes in your mix. Hopefully the thought of having this girl laughing at your ineptitude will help you to be a little more stringent with standards.
3. Make it for a girl
If you like this girl, its likely it might be handy if you have a few things in common, even handier if you have things in common that the rest of the world don’t. If you are making a mixtape, make sure it is yours make sure you love every single moment of it and let this be your only filter. The moment you start thinking about putting tunes on there because they are popular or ‘new’ you are just diluting your own taste, which as a dj, is pretty much all you have.
