thats good, the best way to learn is hands-on, so try to learn from him and ask him to show you some techniques, and try them right away if he lets you, and if you are female you have a head start against all the masses of male wannabes

I think the more girl's DJing the better. All you need is passion and drive for the music. You can learn alot from a fellow DJ. Go for it.

Although, you should know that pretty much everyone and their mom is DJ now thanks to the digital era. Not saying it's a bad thing but it's definitely harder to make yourself stand out. I firmly believe that you really need to produce in order to make it. DJing is almost irrelevant to making it big.

From what I've noticed,  If your ultimate goal is to become as known or as popular as Tiesto, Ferry etc. then it is highly recommended that you both DJ AND PRODUCE.  Doing either one as opposed to both will get you out there, but only to a certain extent and not as much as if you were to do both.

I said this in an earlier post but:

DJ - good

Producer - Better

DJ & Producer - BEST!
Now known as Randy Derricott. I may sometimes use the DJ Ranz alias for certain projects though.

if you look at the producer / dj relationship in terms and scenarios of that of a normal band.
produce FIRST.
get a solid track base (YOUR personal tracks)
then once you have a nice list of kicking tracks.
practice your DJing. you will already know your songs like the back of your hand; therefore, mixing them together will be easier. also, they are hiring YOU to perform. people want an original performance, so be YOU and play YOUR tracks for the majority. lol. that way you dont come off as a pure "cover band" if you will.

makes sense?  well it makes sense in my head lol

i just see one has having a better chance at getting booked if the tracks you play aren't just some downloaded tunes. but you are giving them YOU.

anyways. take it or leave it i guess hahaha

cheers
