DJing For Dummies
It is a fast and useful read. I don't plan to be a professional DJ but I wanted to know something about how it works. I have started loving electronic music the past two years. The author writes from his perspective as a house and trance music DJ in the UK, although of course he is flexible in other genres as well.
He suggests that beatmatching has the purpose of keeping a constant pounding bass beat for clubbers to dance to and to I enjoyed this book about the spirit and the mechanics of DJing. He suggests that beatmatching has the purpose of keeping a constant pounding bass beat for clubbers to dance to and to play the music at a pace that matches the speed of the clubbers' beating hearts. This is helpful for house and trance music but not needed in rock music DJing, which has a wider variety of beat tempos, or in party and wedding DJing where people want a variety of hits or old favourites.
I suppose that beatmatching is also not needed when I am playing just for myself at home. I know what is coming and change moment to moment what I want and the tempo I want. I would also guess that beatmatching will become less necessary even in clubs because people are getting more used to the irregular beats of EDM and electronic music.
As for DJ's beatmatching the speed of the heartbeats in a crowd, I say let all the hearts have unique speeds and moods and still be enjoyable to each other.
Dancers, like people in general, can communicate. They can synchronise and harmonise but not "identicalise". We can use our skill and enthusiasm to dance our own transitions between tunes of differing beats, tempos and structures without relying only on the DJ's transition mix.

In the beginning, I really got into DJing for Dummies.

I understood things even if I had no experience with it, and thought every thing was simple. Suddenly, it lost me. I'm not quite sure where or when I got lost, but it was for a huge part in the middle. It might be my own fault. I don't quite understand all the technical aspects when it comes to audi While I have very little experience when it comes to DJing, it's always something that I wanted to learn so of course, I bought a 'Dummies' book.
I don't quite understand all the technical aspects when it comes to audio. I want to learn to DJ as a hobby, for myself, and maybe for family and friends, but nothing more. I was reading, but didn't quite get it. Instead of being for dummies, it felt like it was for more technical people.
I do believe that it might not be as bad to people with more DJing or audio experience. There was a little quirk that bothered me. I read the 2nd edition so I'm not sure when this was first written. But Recess kept referring to mini-discs and that seemed outdated. Even referring to CDs seemed a bit outdated, but at least I understand those possibly being used today. When I finally decide to give this hobby a go, I'm sure I'll re-read sections of this book. Hopefully, with a little more hands on, I'll understand it.
Feb 22, Joshua Piorier rated it it was amazing. DJ Dummies! Take your time with this book, do not read it in one sitting. You can definitely learn with this book but in my opinion there are some parts that would require you to do further research to understand some of the contents better and then return to the book. Don't give up and keep at it! This book touches on every concept of DJ'ing so this seems to be more of a guide that you can continue to return to until you have you techniques down.
Download "Audacity" because it's free and a very good tool to use while you learn and progress. The book also has a great amount of websites to check out too, don't pass these up. I would definitely recommend for aspiring DJ's and good luck! Mar 26, Crystal rated it really liked it. Apr 11, Kurtzprzezce rated it liked it Shelves: music , handbooks.
