    I’ve been a “Bedroom Dj” for quite some time now. I have played for friends parties and kids discos. But still consider myself a rookie. The only way I’ve found to really know where you’re at skill wise is to test yourself by playing for a crowd. That feedback is essential. Not to mention just that added pressure that can cause simple mistakes that normally you wouldn’t even make at home and how you deal with them.

      Playing at home or in a club is a totally different ballgame indeed, but you should be at a certain level to take it to that next level. Starting with small bars or friends parties are great option for gaining that crowd experience

    Wow! Growing up using turntables, scratching on the right side of the platter never entered my mind! Great tutorial!!!!!

      For us “turntable guys” using the left was the logical choice from the start💯

    I don't know how DJs doing this would not feel how unnatural that is.. When I first started it felt obvious to me that there was not the same level of control placing the hand on the right side. I'm surprised so many people were not aware of this, good catch TLM

      Thanks. I didn’t realize it either at first, but I’ve been seeing more vids of people doing it and I never heard anyone talk about it

    I remember my first gig in 2013, my sound was horrible because I was using a Vestax DJ controller with no sound interface, so I went RCA-XLR in and I could barely hear the booth speakers haha. Everyone else could hear and that's all that mattered. I had spent months at home learning beat-matching and starting with House/EDM tracks gave me a great understanding in that area. I remember my first recorded mixes I had a bunch of minor mistakes but once I got comfortable , I got back to my roots Spinning hip-hop And getting the dance floor jumping. Been at it for 7 years and I'm only getting better.

      @DJ TLM TV thanks man! I'd like your thoughts on trends though. When I got started, I was in the midst of the Deadmau5, Tiesto, Odesza era mixed with the slowing YG and Juicy J. Revival- "ratchet" music era. I feel like our trend now is back to "ratchet" Hip Hop and more specifically Twerk music. That trend allows me to dig deeper into my music knowledge, but what are your thoughts on the current state of "club music" more specifically- bangers. Side note: when I go into "club music" mode, in this climate- I associate club music with skraight bangers. I've tailored my library to 3 solid hours of bangers- 35% from the past 4 years and I'd say 50% are up-until 2010, the rest are scattered amongst recognizable "bangers". I think right now, the differential between " down-time" and "bangers" is blurred. There is so much music out that I feel "trends" have to be adapted into new "bangers", your thoughts?

    When I started DJing, I told no one. I wanted to be certain I was ready to play. I practice! Watch RU-clip videos! Took tips from my mentor and fellow DJs. Played on my radio show! Practice some more. I had my first gig last year. This year I played at a venue, private events, outdoor festival, out of town, out of the country. I've team up with my mentor and we are playing as a duo. This is the thing. I'm still new. I'm still learning and growing. My mentor told me I was ready. Those who heard me so far enjoyed my music selection. In my eyes, I am still a newbie. Why? Because you are never bigger than the scene you are part of. I know middle to major players in the House music scene who heard me play. Please young DJs, take your time! Build yourselves the right way. Rushing it will do more harm than good. A DJ is a brand so he/she must be certain that brand is protected and the product is good. No one will touch a bad product. I will listen to TLM and start recording mixes and send them to family and friends first. Truth be told TLM was the first video I followed when I started out. I still goes to those videos for reference. They are great sources for beginning DJs.

    What controller you like better, ns7 or traktor s4 mk3, both spinning platters hence my question

    • DJ TLM TV
      DJ TLM TV 11 hours ago

      I’ll go for bigger vinyl platters any day so if I have to base my choice on feeling I will go the NS7 route. But the S4 mk3 has some other advantages like the size. Oh, and Serato over Traktor for me so if I had to pick that is an easy choice too ;)

    At 3:02 : 'If you have your hand on the right side of the platter' . He is actually right but the hand is on the left. Think you made it a little too complicated there ;-)

    • DJ TLM TV
      DJ TLM TV 20 hours ago

      The funny thing is, I added a big “LEFT HAND” text on screen at that exact moment, but due to some last minute editing changes that text now appears on screen at a different point making it useless 😂😂 But to be honest, even though that was a bad choice of words I believe this video will still make it pretty clear what I mean ;)

  • DJ Diamond Lee

    I don't have a lot to add to all the comments but I will say this the DJs were talking about switching genres that's 100% the best way to split up the bangers even if it's a all r&b Urban crowd and they want bangers like it a school dance as long as you switched genres so you play some bangers that are r&b play some bangers that are hip hop throwing a little bit of a classic hip-hop or even if they want bangers and a certain genre you just have to be able to switch up the genres within the sub genres if you know what I mean so if they love rock music or they love party rocking music you can play a banger from 2018 and play a banger from 2016 and becomes a vintage and it just throws back memories. because there's some bangers that are all about the memories and there's some that are all about the beats and if you can switch between back and forth you got a good chance of surviving also you have to really like the music that you're playing because 5 hours of bangers

    • DJ TLM TV
      DJ TLM TV Day ago

      If you had a normal piece of vinyl it would be a different story because the song will always begin at the same point on the vinyl. In that case you need to go to that first sound and then place your sticker in your preferred position.

    • DJ TLM TV
      DJ TLM TV Day ago

      It doesn’t matter. The stickers start to become useful once you trigger a cue point. For instance: If I want my sticker to point straight up (12 o clock position), I just rotate the jog wheel until the sticker is pointing straight up and then I hit the cue point. Now the sound will start pointing up. Does that make sense?

      No, I did exactly what I wanted to do, explained exactly what I needed to explain and showed exactly what needed to be shown. What more did you want me to do? Was it not clear? And what you need to understand is that for some people context matters. And for those people I will always explain it more in-depth and/or history.

    Speaking of motorized turntables/controllers. Which ones do you recommend in each form factor? I am this 👌🏾 close to getting rid of my NS7II. It is heavy w/ the flight case and I have been having audio issues and unresponsiveness at times even after restarts/reboots, switching out usb and firmware updates. I’m still working on isolating the root cause to see if it is with breaking up with this controller. Should I stay committed? Mobile DJ / VDJ / DMX Lighting w/ Hip-Hop + R&B + Top40 + Latin

    • Juan Romero Jr.

      ​@DJ TLM TV Thanks for the feedback my other REAL concern as a Mac user is whether Numark is going to release a Catilina-friendly 64-bit driver for the NS7II and the NS7III controllers (their support has not been the greatest in my situation). Just to "Share The Knowledge" here ... There was an article a while back on the 2015 MacBook Pro issues with NS7 and my setup fell right into the scenario Numark described ($2k 2015 MBP + NS7II + Dashboard add-on), I've just been dealing with it a few months after I bought my MacBook in 2015. Numark Article: Troubleshooting USB Audio Artifacts or Latency www.numark.com/kb/article/1957#apple It's a unique situation. I still have the issues after even spending about $80 on an adapter. "Kanex Thunderbolt to eSATA + USB 3.0 Adapter" www.amazon.com/Kanex-Thunderbolt-eSATA-plus-Adapter/dp/B00LOLBBQQ/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=kanex-thunderbolt-to-esata-usb-30-adapter&qid=1571095375&sr=8-3 ... If anyone asks tell them to beware of getting an NS7 and the following specific 2015 MBP models because the issues are unpredictable in my experience. - MacBookPro11,4 - MacBookPro11,5 ... But I love/hate the setup. Upgrade the computer or ditch the controller. Either way, it's a tough call. Thanks for reading this if you do and hopefully this is helpful to someone else having the same issues or considering the purchase of an NS7 controller.

    • DJ TLM TV
      DJ TLM TV Day ago

      Well, there’s only a few options: NS7, Rane Twelve, S4 mk3. The S4 is way smaller, but I don’t know if it has everything you need. Don’t know how well it works with VDJ either

    wow this kinda makes sense..im learning how to scratch and was wondering why it sounded so awful..smh😂 thx for this tip man, i will try asap..

  • DJActionVasquez

    Yeah man I once saw this video where the dj uses the right side instead of the left side of the platter, and he was nice with it. This variation also makes the scratches sound a little bit different, probably due to timing. As a side note, I'm buggin' that so many people are asking what's the controller. I thought the S4MK3 was old news already. Looks like NI should improve their marketing on that unit.

    • DJ TLM TV

  • 18Dummy18ISaid

    I’ve been DJing over two years now. I have a consistent resident gig where I DJ multiple times a week. I’m still reliant on the visuals when I’m beat matching. My confusion lies on whether to adjust the tempo or nudge the jog wheel, particularly when I‘m either near my beat-match or have my beat matched but the track I want to take out has an inconsistent drum pattern like you’ll often find in Funk or old school R&B. How do I determine if my beat is matched accurately but just needs a nudge every so often to adjust with the inconsistent snare drum of the outgoing track? How do I determine that the tempo is what needs to be adjusted up or down if I’m trying to beat match a song that could possibly have a slightly varying BPM due to the live musical instrumentation? l love to mix almost everything for 16 bars when am when I’m transitioning and I’m within a reasonable BPM and Key range. So far without the visuals on my screen I have a hard time predicting when the beat of the outgoing track starts to vary. I want to be better at beat matching by ear and also beat matching difficult songs with an inconsistent drum pattern and confident enough in my beat matching by ear to blend the songs with live drums in my transitions as opposed to dropping it on the one. Any tips would be appreciated.

    If anybody wonders why this matters on jogwheels just remember that jogs were designed with the paradigm of rotating vinyl in mind. So if you have your hand on the right side and try to scratch you are pushing where you need to pull and pulling where you need to push..

I mean your strong hand is the one that you write with/ grab the pen and or have better control? Right? ... or what you do call a strong hand? ...and second... where do you use your strong hand at? On the fader OR on the jog wheel/ plater to have better control of the situation when scratching? ...thanks in advance brother.

    • DJ TLM TV
      DJ TLM TV Day ago

      In my case, I use my right hand on the vinyl when ai’m on the right deck and my left hand on the vinyl when I’m on the left deck. But I also know DJ’s who will always use their strong hand for the vinyl

  • Knuckles KO
    Knuckles KO 2 days ago

    Video is much appreciated. I got my hands on a controller and still have to shell out the cash for some software. Im leaning towards sorato. Do you have any videos that are focused on basic scratches or the terminology attached to specific scratches. Its hard to unlearn bad habits so i would like to do some research in the mean time.

    • DJActionVasquez
      DJActionVasquez Day ago

      @Knuckles KO Hey you're very welcome. I always like to help out other djs. Now as far as your question, that is very individual. For instance, i NEED 8 hot cues. Some dj's just need 4. My Inpulse 200 has only 4, so i remapped the fx pads to now be 4 extra hot cues. Some djs NEED fx. I don't use them much (hence the remapping to hotcues). So to answer your question: #1 write down all the things that YOU need your software / hardware to do, according to your dj style / genre(s) you play. #2 research the software AND hardware that best meets your needs. #3 then buy the best combo that can a) do what you want b) that you like and c) that you can afford. Hope this helps and enjoy!

      @Knuckles KO This comes with DJuced software, just download it and install. That's Hercules' dj software. I have an Inpulse 200, but I mapped it to Traktor 3 since I have it already 100% categorized. Also, if you choose another software, you MUST make sure the unit can work with it.

      @DJ TLM TV Hercules DJControl Instinct. Im getting into music production so I picked up the controller online. If you know any software it would be much appreciated.

      Yes, check out my scratch tutorial vids. I start with the basics. Which controller did you get? Most controllers come with software so it's possible that you could just download a free version

    I'm guilty of this. I'm trying to make the switch now. I'm on the correct side when using my left hand however. I think it has something to do with having 2 fingers on top of the jog and 2 fingers on the side of the jog.

    • DJiMMa
      DJiMMa 19 hours ago

      I'm a turntablist and you can use that side of the record but its more difficult but there are specific scratches that are done there but they ain't easy for example with your left hand on the record you need to use the right side of the record to do the woodpecker scratch which is basically using your fingers to tap the record as your moving it, you can search it on here , difficult to do on jogs though

    it has to do with how they feel confterble doing it yeah if they cut on the right side is gona invert the direction but thats how they feel confterble doing it difrent dj's cut in diffrent ways ive seen dj's cutn with their right hand on both turn tables and manpulating the fader with the left hand at all times. For me when i switch turn tables i use my left hand for the left turntable and my right on the fader and when i switch i use my right hand for the right turntable and left for the fader its the way you feel confterble doing it

    • Julio Santana

      @DJ TLM TV im preaty shure that confort plays a part other wyse they wouldnt be doing it a certain way and as far as the other example i used i wasnt trying to campare it i was trying to point out that thats something else that dj's do cuz they feel cofterble doing it that way. Also ive seen dj's grabbing the jog wheel from the right side and feestyling likah mug check out dj nan og on youtube and youll see

    • DJ TLM TV
      DJ TLM TV 2 days ago

      I’m not sure if comfort played a part in choosing to use the right side of the jog wheel. And I don’t think you can really compare it to your example of choosing which hand someone uses as the fader hand or platter hand. It doesn’t matter which hand they use, they will still apply the techniques the same way. Btw, I do the same thing you do👊🏾 When you use the right side of the platter you can’t perform the techniques the same way because of the direction issue. But like I said in the video: if someone has learned how to do it all in that way they should continue to play that way, but if you’re new you are better off using the “correct” side of the platter.

    I remember my first club gig ,I was so nervous that I found mixing really hard,and wasn't flowing, then I just thought that I was at home doing it just for 10 minutes, and suddenly I found myself relaxing and mixing perfectly even when changing styles of music. So I guess my tip is just think your at home djing and you will be able to do a better job.

    49 here, last cd I made was in 2000. Ego stopped my desire to dj as clubs were bring in cd djs with the invention of denon cd mixers. The cd dj’s were undercutting our prices I guess rightfully so because they only had to have a folder of cd’s. Also being that their shows were not very live it increased bar sells so I now get it. Serato peeked my interest when it came out but it wasn’t enough to get me back in the game. Then an unlikely meeting with a neighbor who said he was a dj and he had a DDj 1000. I asked him to show me how it works and it literally was a game changer for me. Of course I was major rusty but I could immediately see the benefits of that controller. So on my 49th birthday this summer I picked one up. I’ve been practicing in some capacity everyday since. I think the biggest hurdle is not re obtaining your skills but more so for me re obtaining and increasing my music vocabulary. No regrets I’m having so much fun with the unlimited range you have with the DDJ 1000 and I think I’m still only using about 25% of the controller s capability! At age 24 you should easily be able to get back in the game and chances are you will be better than you were when you left.

    This is the perfect time to bring in and mentor an aspiring dj. That’s what I did you need that break. Now depending on the venue, no doubt you are there to please the crowd but in a lot of cases you are also there to sell alcohol!! Djtlm again hits the nail on the head!

      There’s nothing wrong with using you right hand. Just stay on the left side of the jog wheel. I’m dropping an instructional video later today👍🏽

    Reboot the laptop. I've learned that lesson the hard way a couple times. Serato would act super buggy..weird audio issues, etc...Reboot the laptop, all is well with the world. Get into the habit of rebooting before I start my gigs now. No issues since

    • DJ TLM TV
      DJ TLM TV 2 days ago

      Yup! At first I hardly had that issue, but in the last year or two I’ve had a couple of major issues with the laptop. Like you said: super buggy and after a reboot everything works like a charm!

    Skytech are old mixers late mid 2000z, multi channel digital and analog , blue LEDs normally , actually very solid mixers near premium today level or more , very good for scratching and mixing records , very popular with trance and Hardstyle rave vinyl djs, but the channels tend to fail after time like many old mixers

    • Mr F-Swift
      Mr F-Swift 2 days ago

      @DJ TLM TV Yea possibly , my mate I use to DJ with way back in the vinyl days He use to have one and one of his channels went , it's actually really quality mixer not many know today !!! Like up there with lot in high quality warm analog sound with vinyl , reminds me of xzone bit 4 channels and blue LEDs , very popular with Trance , Happy Hardcore, Hardstyle djs , because you can mix good with great sound but scratch good on it Very like pcm Vestax 550 in quality !!! It's digital mixer So he shouldn't have issues with DVS ??? It's intersting to see how many mixers work tho with DVS today ??? I know the Technics one does!! But I want to test the old gemini 626 pro, Citronic etc etc lol not many djs today will know them I guess? 😄

    Great advice. I was out of the game for a while and had to reinvent myself. I knew I wanted to play at a party series. What did I do? I became a great customer. I went to every event they put on. Eventually the promoter noticed me and remembered me from back in the day. I never approached him for gigs. Eventually I played at a friends’ event. When the party was over the promoter walked in and heard me playing and asked me if I wanted to join the Dj roster. So be patient, don’t be pushy. More importantly become a fan of whatever scene you want be a part of.

    So.... I was convinced by a local bar to start gigging every Saturday, far earlier than I had planned. Last weekend was my first DJ gig and damn, that extra time I had planned on sure would have been nice. I thought the gig went horrible. Lucky for me, the patrons that were there, loved it enough to call the bar and let them know they enjoyed it. The bar owner was thrilled! I got LUCKY because I am in a tiny, rural town. Had I been in a large city and an even semi-popular bar, I could have had things go completely different. If anyone reading this is new, do yourself a huge favor and do not go out until you are 100% comfortable with your gear as well as your abilities. I am not saying wait until you are pro level, just be sure you can proficiently swing a set that could be as long as 5 hours. DJ TLM, thanks for the video. Since I played drums in bar bands for years, beat matching took all of about 15 minutes to get good at I honestly don't even know how to use the sync command/button as I have never needed it. Here is how I am doing things at the moment. First off, I am freestyle mixing House and similar genres. I usually don't know what song I am going to be playing next until I see how the crowd reacts to the song already playing. After choosing a track, I match the BPM using the displayed BMP for each track, I start the second track in my headset to make sure everything will be copacetic and will mix. If the incoming song has an intro, I will usually set an auto loop and preview how the two will play together. I then prep the incoming track by dropping the bass or using a high/low pass filter. I am still new and out gigging early so I am keeping my live mixes extremely simple. So, first track is playing and the next track is cued and set up. Once I am ready, I will start that loop on the second track in time to the first track, make any minor timing adjustments needed with the jog wheel and then start bringing it in, in whatever simple manner I have decided on. Once I am happy with things, I release the loop and we are off. Of course some tracks can't be mixed in and are just started at the "right" time. In home practice, I work on fancier mixes and tricks that I will then slowly add to my live gigs. Two questions, my friend. First of all, what do you think of my general approach and do you have any suggestions? Second, once a person has beat matching down and knows how to read the crowd, , what do you think is the next most important skill? Track selection? Thanks again!
