Five Reasons DJs Need to Produce


Music production school recently talked to producers and DJ’s and listed their Top 5 reasons you need to embrace being a Music Producer in today’s world of DJing. They go hand in hand. Below are 2 of the reasons.

“Five reasons DJs need to produce:

1.) You need to understand production to be able to remix other people’s tracks. Remixes are common currency to getting noticed as a new producer. You may not get paid for delivering your first remix but if it is released on a decent label or respected artist it will give you a valuable degree of exposure and kudos.
