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).
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, 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.
Manchester’s DJ Stylus presents this weeks DJcity UK Podcast! Stylus went in the mix with fresh mash ups including a selection of tracks from the pool. His open format style meant he jumped genres from RnB, hip hop, and UK grime. Stream or download below.
