Sound and lights are our thing. We do it because we love it. Because of this we’re always excited to get a new DJ gig as it’s something we do well – again because we love doing it. However, Laidback Luke always leaves us awestruck.
Sometimes you stumble across a music video that just needs sharing. The train wreck kind of video – you want to not look but can’t help yourself. It should come as no surprise that it’s from Russia where the weird (to many in the USA) often seems common place.
Music is our thing. If we’re lighting an event – it involves music more often than not. DJ and Karaoke events are obviously all about the music. Even corporate events frequently end in entertainment that features music. But it’s not just our business, it’s also our passion.
Let’s start with the obvious. If you’re a DJ it involves playing music. You can’t really be a ‘disc jockey’ without that. Although I suppose you could make an argument that in modern times MJ, or music jockey, would probably be more accurate – that said there are still many DJ’s using vinyl and mixing with it and for good reason, but that’s a different discussion. But a moot point as DJ’s firmly entrenched in the vernacular and after all, we all know what a DJ is…providing we have context. I say this as the difference between skills needed can vary hugely, depending on where and when an event is held and exactly what’s expected. However, there are basic core skills that every DJ should have at any event.
