A Book on How to DJ is being published this month

FutureDJs’ book ‘How To DJ’ is described as “the complete resource for anyone interested in the alchemy of mixing records”.

According to a press release, it is “aimed at the aspiring student with no prior knowledge as well as DJs looking to extend their skills and explore new genres”.

Written by FutureDJs authors Austen Smart, Scott Smart and Tom Dent – who also teach DJing in schools – the guide covers beat-matching, advanced mixing techniques, using effects and scratching.

It features step-by-step instructions, diagrams, guides to genres and features comments from professional DJs.

To accompany the book Future DJs have produced a downloadable piece of audio where “every skill can be practised in a range of genres from house, techno and trance to grime, trap, hp-hop and drum ‘n’ bass”.
