Are you a complete beginner, who’s thought about giving DJing a go, but been put off as soon as you realised you couldn’t just hook your Spotify music collection up to your DJ software or gear?

Maybe you feel like you have what it takes, but you’ve never paid much attention to track titles, artist, record labels and so on – but you sure know where to find some killer Spotify playlists you’d like to DJ with?

Or maybe you’re just tired of people playing lame YouTube videos through Bluetooth speakers at parties, and yearning to have a go to make a better job of it, figuring Spotify must surely be the way forward?

If so, this is for you – in this extended “tips and tricks” video tutorial, I’ll show you how to get started with just your Spotify subscription, an iPad, a great value DJ app, and whatever speaker or speakers you’ve got knocking around.

We’ll start by learning some basic transitions, and once we have, we’ll move onto more advanced stuff: Plugging in better speakers, plugging in headphones, and how to “pre-listen” to tracks, just like real DJs do. You’ll be rocking your next party before you know it!

How to get your free book plus extra training videos

Of course in a short YouTube video I can’t show you anything more than how to get started, so I want you to have a copy of my Amazon bestselling book on DJing, for free.

That’ll give you much, much more – in fact, it’s got everything in it you need to get ready for playing outside of your home.

Not only that, but it contains links to five exclusive EXTRA videos explaining more advanced mixing techniques – so when you do land those “real” gigs, you’ll have some skills to show off!
