In this blog, I want to identify what helped me over my 9 years as a Melbourne based DJ and how it can help you achieve big things in a shorter time. This is for the bedroom DJ/Producer, deciding to make a career out of DJing, who can see a fulfilling future for him or herself in the music industry.
There are many things a DJ/Producer can do to stand out for branding. There are the obvious things like different photos or press shots, and a unique style/sound of music in a DJ’s set. But, the one and most important thing I find most DJ’s don’t touch on enough is their story.
STORY? Sounds simple right? Well, I will explain how big a role it plays with your music/DJ career, and how it can help you grow your brand.
Rejection in the music industry is very frequent and expect to receive a lot of it if you are looking to climb the ladder of DJ success. Rejection is something you need to encounter and you most definitely will, not only in the music industry, but in life to grow as a person and achieve your own personal fulfilment.
As a Melbourne DJ I have gone through a lot of rejection to get where I wanted to go, so in this blog, I will explain what it can mean to be rejected, how to deal with it and how it can come down to being a numbers game.
As a DJ you have core values, and reasons for doing what you do, and where you end up will result from what comes from your values. In this blog, I will be writing about what happens to DJs with the wrong core values, compared to a DJ with the right core values. And how you can recognise if your values are helping you in your current situation and on the road to success.
Think of this from another perspective; this could be a little bit of a wake-up call. To get DJ gigs we, DJ’s sometimes need to change our approach. If we have felt like we have exhausted all avenues, then this could be the one that might save your music career in the long run. So, here are five key tips why you should consider becoming the DJ/Promoter to get DJ gigs.
