Featuring his usual inspired selection of acapellas, bootlegs and remixes, this dancefloor-friendly DJ Skill Sessions routine from our own DJ Carlo Atendido is packed full of tricks that you can use in your own DJing, whatever controller and software you run.
Look out for the “offset crossfader switch” that anyone can do with two copies of the same track, watch how he uses Pad FX, and also take note of the big, obvious BPM/genre change right in the middle. The lesson here is that you don’t always have to try and hide BPM changes – you can make them a “feature” of your set just as effectively.
