This MIx is Turnt UP

Its BRING THE FUN FRIDAY and we have the place TURNT UP with EDM. Big up to all DJs  that are fans and friends of the blog, DJ Kurt Riley, DJ Skaii, DJ Arif Cooper, DJ Denvo , DJ Nadz, DJ Yellow Kid to name a few.

Check out this birds eye view of a true DJ working the 1 and 2s.....maaad  DJ Fitme (14M views cant be wrong)

Many of you non DJs may not appreciate the skill involved in playing music, this video allows you to see the magic as it happens this is a maaaaad mix,  great blending of songs

So DJ 101 you will notice the cross fader at the bottom is left open (in the middle) and the DJ is just  adjusting the volume on the two channels. In Hip Hop and Dancehall  there is more switching of the cross fader from one source to another.

Lots of knob turning going on........all that turning of the knobs is typical to mixing EDM and House music, it is adjusting the treble and especially the bass signal on the music from the various sources so that it doesn't clash with the mix and it comes out clean.

The Blue knob at the bottom is the Colour knob that adds as the name suggests sound colour to the music, it can be programmed for  different effects. The yellow light below the colour knob is the cue that allows the DJ to hear the audio before he opens it on the mixer

How do we know all this, well I am a weekend DJ my past includes even playing at Hedonism II so its all about the music maaaan

Let the  Party begin...............................
