What is a disc jockey (abbreviated DJ, D.J. or deejay) ?
In Bangladesh we have a misconception about this profession. It is highly frowned upon. but it’s time to educate ourself little bit about this profession. DJs plays music for audiences at live venues, or entertain radio audiences. DJs can also be producer who creates music. Infact there are many legendary dj/producer like Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Armin Van Buuren, Afrojack, Tiësto, Steve Angello, Kygo, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, these are just to name a few, playing music for the live audience is art because you will create your own sounds by manipulating beats, using samples, adding extra music and sound effects, so you will need to have a good sense of timing, you will need to think on your feet, you will need a knowledge of music technology and an awareness of music trends.
