DJ Tips with Jo Ann Coker & Emily Smith, Part 2: Playlists
Emily and I are excited to bring you a second DJ class. This one is on Playlists. We are limiting the class to 15 people this time so we can focus on individual questions and playlists.
You had so many great questions for us last time that we didn't have time to go over everyone's playlists. We'll do that in this one. Here's what to prepare for class.
1. Homework - Create a playlist ahead of time for a specific Seattle venue of your choosing. ex Blues Underground, Om Fusion, Century Ballroom, etc.
2. Playlist Length -Choose how long of a set to create according to the venue and time slot you choose. For example, if you are prepping a set to DJing Swing at Century Ballroom, that would be 3 hours, since there is only 1 DJ. Do your homework on your venues. :)
3. Add your questions to the spreadsheet.
4. Please be on time. If you are unable to do so, send us a message.
