Or, if you’re planning on just using CDs, you may want to have a turntable, which you can incorporate into your DJ setup, or use it to transfer your vinyl tunes onto CD. Thinking about turntables (for vinyl DJs) Turntables are the workhorse of the DJ industry. They’ve been around in one form or another since the dawn of recorded music, and have been the mainstay in clubs and a vital part of dance music since its conception. A record is TEAM LinG Chapter 2: Starting Off with the Bare Bones a circular piece of hard, but flexible vinyl with a single spiral groove cut into each side that starts on the outer edge and eventually ends up in the centre of the record.

Remixes are variations of the same tune, sometimes by the producer who created it, or sometimes by other producers who change the sound of the original tune entirely (like Tiesto did to Sarah McLachlan’s ‘Silence’). The lay out of the record changes from tune to tune, but often, the main mix that the record company feels may be most popular sits on an entire side of a 12-inch single, with the other side left for a couple of remixes. Though you do find a second, different tune on the B-side of some 12-inch singles, DJs prefer a range of remixes to work with, rather than a second tune that they may not like, which is considered a waste of space.

So make sure that your equipment is at a height that enables you to practise with your body erect and your shoulders back, in line with your spine. I have a great friendship with Dr Dan, my chiropractor, due to years of not following my own advice! Correct ergonomics for any desk (and that includes a DJ ‘desk’) are that you need not reach, stretch, or bend to use equipment. Ideally, you want to stand tall, with your shoulders back, and your elbows at 90 degrees when DJing. Protect your neck, too, by looking down at the controls, rather than craning your neck downwards like a goose!
