Nothing substitutes pure passion. If you want something bad enough and go after it... it will be yours. Its that simple.

The best djs know how to strike the balance between predictable and surprising. Predictable with regards to timing and consistency, surprising with regards to content and execution! Get these two things around the wrong way and you're sure to make your listeners bored and/ or cringe.

'Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication' - This absolutely applies to djing and although your DJ rig might rival the international space stations computer systems, whats coming out the speakers is all that matters... and more often than not, its clear, clean and simple sounding! Less is almost always more....

A DJ who loves two genres of music is twice as rich as a DJ who only loves one!

I'm pretty damn happy to say that I have my first student locked in for some lessons this week! I'm pretty big on privacy and confidentiality so no student will ever be named or have their picture published on any of Soundskills social media/ webpages unless of course they want to be! :-) So.. whats a good program to pixelate faces with? haha *joking*
