How Do I Mix Music

3 min read

To be honest there is no real method of knowing how to mix tunes without at least having a sense of just how fast the song plays. You might not know the precise BPM, but after attempting to mix some different tracks with each other as well as really computing the BPM of a minimum of a handful of records after that you do not have a referral point.

You need to at the very least compute the BPM of some records in order to have a reference factor so you recognize when you hear a record play you can estimate the BPM of it.

This truly features understanding your documents and the only means to understand your records is to play them. If you do not take the time to get to know your documents then there is no factor in DJing.

What do I indicate when I state “understand your records”?

When you know your documents I imply you understand the tune and also can duplicate it. When you recognize your documents you additionally understand the following:

  1. The name of the document label
  2. The musicians
  3. The manufacturer of the song
  4. The way the tune starts
  5. The way the tune finishes
  6. Exactly how fast or slow down the tune plays
  7. If the song is one that gets individuals to dance
  8. If the tune has breaks in it or the point where only the drums play.
  9. If the track is only a fast change track or if the tune can be played for an extended amount of time without obtaining boring.
  10. Does the track use the opportunity to scrape over it?
  11. Does the track use the possibility to make a fantastic mix?

This is what being familiar with your documents indicates. Necessarily a DJ is supposed to know the initial 3 things on the note down pat.

  1. The name of the document label
  2. The musicians
  3. The manufacturer of the tune

Individuals will need to know the names of the tunes, that the musicians are and at some time the document tag.

You will certainly locate that when you play records people will come near you as well as ask you. “What is the name of that song?” Your response must roll off your tongue.

When you get to the point of recognizing your records you will naturally have an idea of the BPM in order to blend almost any type of track you want. This, however, does not occur overnight as well as it will take a while.

I locate that the best DJ’s normally have a feeling of time as well as rhythm and can practically quickly pick up any kind of record as well as blend it after they’ve paid attention to the very first few bars of the song.

Fortunately for you this can be taught by simply listening to a track and clapping your hands to the beat.

This might sound fundamental however recognizing this easy principle as well as applying it to various other tracks you will find that you start bobbing your head and then jumping your entire body to the beat of a song. Learn info about All Genres of Music by clicking here.

Regrettably from my experience also one of the most passionate music lovers do not necessarily have a sense of rhythm as well as if this holds true with you do not anguish. Read the earlier area on calculating BPM’s for a far better understanding.
