My first ever - strictly speaking haha - Melodic House and Techno DJ Set. Before I jump in though I'll give you some tips to exploring new genres and crafting playlists! 1. I find Beatport is a great place to find and research and even download / stream new music 2. When crafting playlists be flexible in your approach - first attempt should be considered a rough draft 3. What's your goals for the set (the ramp / the wave) 4. Get super strong foundations (check out links to my courses below) 5. Do you use standard EQ or Isolator settings 6. How do you keep things interesting.

I had so much fun DJing this. The challenge: a student in the Club Ready Tribe (winner of previous round), selects a genre, selects 5 tracks FROM that genre and then posts in the Club Ready Tribe group and students then create a mix using those 5 tracks and can share in the group and students in the group vote and give feedback. This is a great skill building exercise, it also helps to get students active in the group and opens up their network and experience. This is my entry to the contest!
Firstly, thank you for the people that suggested that I do a Psy Trance Set. personally until now, although being a fan of psy trance and going to many a doof in the old days, I've never actually played it before and I can see now that was a big mistake.
The best way to know how to mix specific genres is to find an artist that specialises in a particular genre and then listen to some of their live sets on soundcloud and notice how much of each track they are playing and how they do their transitions.
In my experience there's different ways to mix most genres and it usually comes down to prep vs no prep. Personally I feel both have their advantages but today, off the back of last weeks video, I want to take the concept of no prep to the next level and go one step further and cover the screens which means I have no visuals cues.
