Digital DJ Tips reader Alex writes with a question we obviously get asked an awful lot. He says: “I am new to DJing. I have been thinking about how to book my first gig but am struggling. I play mainly techno and tech-house but am having trouble finding where to try and get a gig, and how to do so.

Digital DJ Tips member DJ Ninja writes: “Would be interested to know your thoughts on having track names hidden when playing out live. I’m generous with my music – if people ask me the name of the track in the booth I’ll tell them the name. I do hold the view of sharing my music to a certain degree among people I trust.”
