We are a professional DJ agency by where all of our London DJs began Djing with records. Everyone can by a pair of decks and call themselves a professional DJ. They can also by likes on Facebook, Twitter, purchase plays Soundcloud and hire a good photoshop or web designer to make them look like they are the bees knees. But when it comes to entertaining a crowd of 100-1000 they may not know how to transition from Phil Collins to Falco to Madonna to Britney to Rihanna, to Luther Vandross properly, therefore, boring the crowd.
The other major difference is the actual style of playing. These days, the majority of original classic vinyl DJ’s use Serato and Traktor with vinyl or CDJ’s. But the main thing they do not do is use the synch button or Automix (if there is one). Why would you want to pay someone who is just clicking a button and pushing play each time like a robot for your private event or London nightclub. Serato Scratchlive never had an Automix feature but now they are eliminating this option and introducing this synch button into Serato which is the soon to be only option that Scratchlive DJ’s but we know our DJ’s will not be using this as they are not lazy and genuinely like to DJ as their passion. If you do see a London DJ hired playing with this screen, we urge you to have a look and see if he or she is using this button. If they are? Tell them not to use it and that you are not paying them to be a robot. If the DJ does appear to clang away pots and pans because they are not allowed to use the synch button. Let them use it and next time hire a professional DJ. But in any case we would always suggest you hire DJ’s that do not use controllers.
We hire original vinyl DJ’s who are skilled and never controller DJ’s. Why do we say no to controller DJ’s? Of course experience, but no decent self respecting DJ will choose a controller over vinyl if they can use turntables. Lazy DJ’s will use Automix and just one deck and push the keyboard as mix. We would not want to send you an inexperienced DJ and ruin your party. Obtaining DJ software, buying a track list does not make them a DJ. We would not want anyone to be put in a situation where they are having a great party and then when it comes to the point going on the dance-floor, the DJ is no good. Avoid that situation potentially happening and hire one of our professional DJs.
