If you’re a wedding, mobile, party or hobby DJ wanting to figure out how to DJ with radio edits – nothing more than the commercially available versions of songs – read on! In this article I’ll outline the exact way to do it, based on how we teach it to our students here at Digital DJ Tips.
Radio edits – versions of songs that you hear on the radio, in Spotify playlists, and so on – are the easiest to get hold of, and the ones everyone wants to hear. So why do so many DJs jump through hoops to avoid DJing with them?
Whether it’s joining expensive professional download pools (once you’re getting gigs and can justify the expense), or meticulously making your own edits with intro and outro beats to make them easier to mix, you may fid yourself tempted to spend a lot of time and effort getting versions of today’s pop hits that are easier to beatmix with, for your DJ sets.
