The following DJ Tip will advise you on how you can put a great DJ set list together to get the crowd going whether at a club or a mobile DJ gig.
For a DJ set to have a good climax and a good break off with any genre and any type of music you want to:
Pick Songs That You REALLY Want To Use
Go through the records, cd's, mp3's or whatever and find the music that you want to use.
You might have over a thousand songs but just choose the ones that you really want to use.
Now that you've got the songs that you want to use:
Listen To Each Track
Listen to each of the tracks that you've picked to use in your set, it doesn't need to be the full track.
How Does That Song Make You Feel?
Every time you listen to a new track, sit and think how does that song make you feel? Does it make you feel relaxed/chilled? Or does it make you feel happy/euphoric and want to get up and jump around?
Separate The Songs
Separate the tracks into different sides. So, you'll have the songs that make you feel chilled and relaxed on one side, and on the other side you'll have the ones that make you feel happy and euphoric.
Now you have the basis for getting a good DJ set list together.
Get The Crowd Rocking
Start off your set with some mellow and chilled tracks, slowly build them up to your happy and euphoric ones to get the crowd rocking and then as you're coming to the end of your set slowly bring them back down again, or if you want to, you can leave with a bang.
Hopefully that will give you some ideas of how to put together a great DJ set list.
