I’m a bit embarrassed about this, so I’ll give it to you straight. A few months ago I told you guys about how to make beats with Sonic Producer, a beat maker software I’ve been using to make beats for my mixes. I wasn’t lying, I really do use it and I do think that it’s a good program for beginners to get started in making their own beats. Or, at least, I did.

veteran DJ showed me the ropes so I could become a great DJ that much quicker.

I didn’t have money for DJ Lessons but I wanted to learn how to DJ so I just sort of
stumbled my way through the learning process.

So to help you get ahead with your DJing and save you some time and pain through
mistakes, I’m going to share with you some of the time-hardened DJing facts:
