Tiesto is in the mix… We want to know what you think of DJ drops. Do you use DJ drops at gigs or on your mix tapes?

DJ drops are most commonly found on radio shows. For those that don’t know, a DJ drop is something played over a track like: “Mixmeister D is in the house!” We want to know how you feel about hearing DJ drops in club sets or in mixtapes. Have you ever used them? If so, did you make them yourself or did you pay a professional service to make them for you?

We’re generally not fans here at Digital DJ Tips, although they can have their place as with anything. Trouble is, they can be a little bit tacky. If you are going to use DJ drops, the two main rules are these: Number one, make sure they are well made; and number two, is don’t overuse them.

Personally, I have never heard DJ drops being used when I have been out dancing or playing. The idea of hearing them in a club is quite alien to me. Being based in Europe, I wonder if it is more of an American thing?

Let us know where you are, if DJ drops are a common thing for you, and how you feel about them.

So, over to you: Do you use DJ drops at gigs or on your mixtapes? Did you make them yourself or pay someone to make them for you? Let us know in the comments below…
