Hi, my names Sam and I live in London. (no DJ name yet!) I have always had a passion for music and have always wanted to DJ, and i have finally decided to take the plunge and buy some equipment to teach myself on! But I am just not sure where to begin! When I was younger, vinyl decks were the only option and I am still tempted to get some... but now there are CD decks as well and I just do not have a clue what the advantages and disadvantages are?!? Should I learn on all formats? Though I'm guessing that the CD decks are cheaper as you can download music instead of buying vinyls? And I really don't want to offend anyone, so please don't take this the wrong way.. but is using CD decks a bit like cheating?? As do they beat match for you?? My eventual goal is to be a club DJ (playing dance, house, and r&b) and I would like to learn to play lots of different styles of music! Also, would love a mentor if anyone is willing to help??! Thanks for taking the time to read this and I look forward to reading any responses!!
