It’s important to first understand the difference between what a story is and what a story does. Modern computer technology has allowed automatic beatmatching and led to debate regarding its use, which is sometimes described as cheating. When DJ sets are distributed directly via the Internet, they are generally presented as a single unbroken audio file; cue sheets may be provided by the DJ or fans to allow the set to be burned to a CD, or listened to, as a series of separate tracks in the way it would be produced as a commercial mix.
PPL licenses recorded music played in public or broadcast on the radio or TV and then distributes the fees to its members. The companies listed below are licensed by PPL to provide DJs with recorded music on CD, DVD or via download. If you use recorded music (from PPL’s repertoire) supplied by a music supplier, your business will usually need to have its own PPL licence to cover playing that recorded music in public. Even if you are a DJ yet to enter the digital age, it will not feel completely foreign.

The presence of a sample or loop in the music does not make that music a mash-up; typically, the presence of one or more samples or loops indicates a remix, if they were not a part of the original master itself. Ensure the Recording source to record from is selected as MIX (for audio only) from the drop down menu. It’s important to note that the DJ template has aux tracks set up for our DJ effects.
Not content with being a leading production outfit, Modeslektor are on-point DJs with an ear for new, progressive sounds and recently they’ve been pushing the hardened club tracks that labels like Sound Pellegrino and ClekClekBoom specialise in. We wanted to hear what’s in their record bags right now so we asked them to put together an exclusive In Session mix.
Doing an actual DJ SET, not just working the crowd at the local, I really do incorporate a storyline into my night. The middle is where it gets darker, a feeling of not knowing where the music is gonna go for a while. Every mix I made has had a theme that is repeated in the artwork, the tune selection, custom intros, samples and topics within the tunes themselves (Themematching” – coined it!). So – this isn’t some shameless promothing – if you want to see how I do it, perhaps for some inspiration – have a look at my Neurology Trilogy”, a three-part 180 min drum & bass mix that all have themes that tie together.
