|A very helpful and useful guide into the field of being a DJ. First the author begins with a quick history lesson for all of toughs who may not be up on the beginnings of the DJ. Then you are taken through equipment needed, how to set up, if there are any problems. Ways you should practice before you actually go out. Then goes into mixing and the equipment you can use and sometimes you already have. Also talks about going out with an experienced DJ first if possible as to help you see how things are set up and how someone who has been doing it for a while handles everything. Goes a little into what to charge, also discusses not scratching records until you practice with someone who can teach you for there is a right way and wrong to do it. Overall a very good book with a lot of information. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
