As a professional DJ with over 20 years experience I thought it might be helpful if I offered a few tips to help you get the right DJ for your wedding.
This is the sixth in my series of bite sized tips
You should have a reasonable expectation that the DJ you employ for your wedding has a range of skills to show that he is dedicated and proficient in their chosen line of work.
A basic skill that any Professional DJ should possess is the ability to move from one song to the next smoothly usually through a process called beat matching.
This is known as mixing.
Ask your DJ whether they are able to seamlessly mix the songs to create a smooth transition from one song to the next.
Without this basic skill the DJs transition between songs is likely to be erratic, the beat and rhythm between the two songs will clash or they will have to fade one song out and fade the new song in.
The energy on your dance floor will undoubtedly suffer as a result.
