When you start getting good in DJ’ing, you’ll often find yourself implementing the same techniques when mixing. And doing the same stuff, over and over again, can get pretty boring, pretty fast, not only for yourself but for the audience as well.
So, in this video, I’m gonna show you 3 mixing scenarios, where you can turn your basic transitions into better ones, using 3 advance mixing techniques.
Now, the purpose of teaching you these 3 advance techniques, is to hopefully give you more options when mixing songs together, to add more variety and excitement to your DJ sets.
Scenario #1 – Mixing House Songs together like a Beginner
So what you just saw was a clean and smooth transition.
We simply mixed in our next song which has a 32 beat intro onto the current songs chorus which goes for about thirty two beats as well.
Scenario #2 – Mixing Hip Hop Songs together like a Beginner
So the difference of this mix compared to the 1st basic mix example, is that here, we’re mixing at the outro section of the current song.
And though we’re trying to implement some smooth mixing. The keys of both songs are simply clashing.
And it’s unfortunate, because both songs have notable melody intros and outros. So what we want to do is highlight that, and smoothly mix at the same time.
So for this scenario. We’re going to implement an Acapella link up transition.
So we’re going to use an Acapellas to link both songs together.
So we’re going to mix the acapella at the outro section of the current song, then we’re going to echo out the current song away, load the next song, and cue that in, all while the acapella plays.
Then as the 2nd song reaches the end of its intro, we’ll simply echo out the acapella away.
Scenario #3 – Transitioning from another Genre to a Faster Genre
So what you just saw there was an example of scratch/cue dropping. And that semi basic technique works by echoing out the previous song away, and simply scratch/cue dropping the next song in.
This technique is an easy and effective way to shift genres and BPMs, but let’s take this transition up a notch, and make it sound smoother and cleaner.
So to do this more advanced transition, you’ll need to have the following settings.
Now, this more advanced transition requires the following settings:
1. Your first song assigned as the Master deck
2. Tempo fader settings set to wide
3. Sync activated on both decks
So the plan is, we’re going to mix the long intro section of the next song with the long outro section of the current song.
And at the same time, slowly bring the BPM of the current song up, to match the native BPM of the next song.
And don’t worry. Since both songs are in sync, the next song will simply follow, the current songs BPM movement.
Now once we reach the next song’s native BPM on the current song, we’ll simply echo out the previous song away, and await the end of the next songs’ intro.
