Watch: DJ Prospect and DJ ELLiNGTONE Discuss the Importance of Networking
UK DJs Prospect and ELLiNGTONE recently sat down with the TalkOver Podcast to discuss the importance of networking. The show, which focuses on DJ issues, is hosted by UK DJs Stylus and DUBL.
Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, Prospect is a mixer on BBC Radio 1Xtra and member of the DJcity UK team. ELLiNGTONE, who also lives in Edinburgh, holds it down from Wednesday to Sunday in clubs throughout the city.
The conversation focused on the UK scene, but most of the tips and insights are relevant to DJs of all countries. During the discussion, Prospect and Stylus spoke about the impact of the DJcity linkups in the community (around the 13 minute mark).
DJ Dubl & DJ Stylus Discuss Anxiety, Depression, & Mental Health in the DJ World
London’s DJ Dubl and Manchester’s DJ Stylus drop their latest “Talkover Podcast” and discuss in detail a very important topic, health issues in the DJ world.
They explore why so many DJs (and other music industry professionals) suffer from disorders like anxiety, depression and stress as well as the common fact that most people suffering stay silent. They talk about possible solutions, plus ways to help cope with these issues. Both have suffered quite badly from anxiety as DJs and they discuss their own personal experiences with trying to be a creative minded, an active DJ, and battling with mental health issues. Hopefully this will resonate and help a few people.

Vlogging Tips for DJs
Vlogging, a.k.a. video blogging, is a great way to connect with fans and build your brand. And for DJs who already make the most of Snapchat and Instagram stories, vlogging is a natural progression.
To learn more about the medium, Mojaxx spoke with the USA’s Swiftstyle, who runs a popular turntablism vlog, and DJ Stylus, who recently launched a channel about all things DJing. The two discussed why they started vlogging, their preferred equipment, and provided some tips for starting a vlog.
