DJs Tell You How to Spin

When someone asks you about what you wanna do "when you grow up" do you see nothin' but turntables and records? Is all you hear pumpin' bass sounds and scratching noises? But you really don't know how to get there from here. Here's what some real DJ's have to say about getting started.

Female DJ, known as Miss Behavin' told E-dance online, "If you are really passionate about music and DJ'ing you will go all the way to the top. Determination will get you there in the end. Just don't give up - keep pushing. Hassle promoters constantly until they are so sick and tired of you badgering them that they give you the work in the end." Miss Behavin' got her start one random day when she decided to try mixing and went out and bought some gear.

DJ Chris Anslow got started when he sold his BMX to buy a set of turntables at the age of 16. His tip is to: "Always believe in yourself - be persistent, make loads of new tapes and send them out, again and again."

Miss Bistro started by DJ-ing at an under 18 club. She suggests you, "Find your style and be patient. Don't buy to many records to begin with, just practice with a few."

Huggy/Burger Queen, who started because of a love of music, says, "Love your music firstly and remember there's more to music than the top 20 dance records. Listen to fresh records and don't be scared to try them."

Miss Pink kinda fell into DJ-ing cuz her boyfriend was doing it. She says, "Listen! Stay true to yourself, but be aware of what people on a dance floor get into. Don't get caught up with always needing the newest tunes - lots of old ones still rock and a lot of people may never have heard them the first time around (that's why all the Trance tunes are remixed /re-released so often)."

So if you decide you may want to mix it up down the road instead of flipping burgers or becoming that doctor your mom wants you to, talk to other DJs and see what you can find out from them. The best opinions are from someone in the biz, perhaps your friend's older brother or sister spins? They'll be sure to tell it like it is. Until then - keep it spinnin'.

So far, not meeting my expectations. :/ Did you think the storyline would go in a different direction or is it just not as well written?   It's full of cliches and lost character development. And I don't like the main character.
