If you’re just taking your first crack at DJing, it may be difficult to know what songs to play. If your dance floor isn’t opening up and/or your audience isn’t giving you any clues as to what songs will make them dance, what do you do? After all it’s not just about playing the one big song. As the DJ, you’re responsible to fill in 4-5 hours+ of music for each event. So how do you know how to hit a home run at each party? Don’t fret. I got you covered.
