Our London DJs use Scratchlive (or Serato) which is a programme that allows DJs to mix and scratch mp3s using turntables or CDJs. Serato Scratchlive was released in 2004 and is used by all live mixing DJs, Scratchlive is different to other DJ programmes such as virtual DJ as it does not have automix function. All DJs using Scratchlive are mixing on the spot and not relying on the computer. They are using either the turntables or CDJs to change the tempo to match and mix the songs (if the DJ scratches are performed – they will be live).
We only hire and send out Scratchlive DJs as they have a wide variety of songs of all genres and we only hire djs that use Scratchlive as we are certain they have the ability to mix songs and not rely on an automix program and that the best set and performance is delivered to every party. We have hundreds of London DJs apply for slots every week but we do not hire DJs randomly and send them out with out examining their skill-set.
We are aware that no formal qualification is required to classify someone as a professional DJ. A good website designer, well created produced mixtape along with a good set of photoshoped pictures, may make someone look very appealing however when it comes to them on the night they may have the songs but not actually know how to play them. We have heard clients come back with feedback with positive comments about our DJs in comparison to other London DJs they have hired in the past. Although, some may see our London DJs using Scratchlive they automatically realise the DJ is mixing live.
We are very proud of our DJs on our list and do boast the quality of their skills. You can see from our testimonials that we have many positive feedback from customers ranging from 80people 18th birthdays to 1000people corporate parties, London bars and nightclubs. This is why we only hire selective DJs and Serato Scratchlive experienced professional DJs with over 7years of continuous active experience.
