One thing you should always do as a DJ, is get in the habit of recording your practice sessions. I always do this. I decided to upload one of my practice sessions for you guys to check out, so you can see all the mistakes, blunders, etc. But also see some of the good things I do.

I also tried to mount the camera in a more ideal spot. Sorry about some of the shaking.

Keep in mind this is not a showcase, this is a practice session. So I tend to use effects a lot more while practicing so I can see where effects are good and are bad.

Couple of things I know you are going to ask so I will clarify.
Question:
How come you tend to grab knobs and not turn them? Especially after transitions?
Answer:
This is a mental checklist I go through in my head to make sure effects aren’t turned on, EQ’s are set right, Gains are good, crossfaders are in the right spot etc. by touching the area, im mentally checking that section off. If something is wrong in the area, I can quickly make an adjustment. A lot of times if you are fast enough, people won’t notice.

Question:
Is that your voice at the beginning?
Answer:
Yes.

Question:
Any of this planned out?
Answer:
The first two songs, then I just go from there, using stuff on the fly. Nothing was planned after the first two tracks that were loaded in the CDJ’s

Question:
How did you do X?
Answer:
Post a comment, I’ll do my best to try to answer.

Doom Guy says:

Honestly the best genre to learn to dj with is drum and bass…its how i
learned to dj and because of its pacing and beat style it sets you up for
alot of underground genres and once your brain is trained to deal with more
complex style of beats all this kinda music gets almost too easy and never
feels like a challenge. But then you get caught in a cycle of only mixing
underground music to the point that u start mixing music no one wants to
hear

gav man says:

at like 0.45 it sounds like get skyrim

Daniel Pratdesaba says:

Good mix dude !

Doom Guy says:

I love when djs arent actually doing anything but just pretend to be doing
something. LOL. The whole aspect of being a dj is just knowing what the
audience doesnt i guess for the majority of people they just dont
understand what everything on a mixer does. God dam flangers ruin the songs
so much lol i mean its a pretty decent set but its all the same genre and
such a simple genre at that try blending different genres or try to do cuts
in and out of genres try even changing your bass notes every 4-8 bars to
really get into the mix of things. Because just knowing alot of the songs
that were played in the set all i see u doing playing a song over another
one and not alot of looping yet your hands are still moving when u really
arent doing anything and just waiting for a place to drop the next song.

I can’t even tell where your mic is plugged in. I see that it isn’t in the
mic plug on the top of the mixer.

DJMilk3y says:

very nice ^.^ enjoyed it

bluex217 says:

faders ARE the volume, each channel has one, the three knobs low is bass
mid is usually vocals high is for those crisp clicks. The best advice I got
when I started out was to mix with the equalizers NOT the volume faders,
that’s how you really mix and blend songs well and make it sound good
