DJing Basics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Come discover the basics of DJing!

So. You want to be a DJ?

The very hardest part of this hobby is just getting started. And hey- I know. I remember what it was like. I remember what it was like to not even know what basic software to use. What beginner equipment to buy. What the heck all these different genres were. I remember what it was like to see these awesome performers in the fandom and wonder- How?

The pool is deep and dark, but we're here to help you make that all important first step in.
In this panel, we will be doing our very best to help you embark on what may be a lifelong and very rewarding journey. We want to leave you well equipped when you leave to immediately do the hardest part- Get started.

Who's we?

My name is Ember and it wasn't so long ago that I was in your shoes. At this point, I've been a fandom DJ for about 4 years, slowly moving from my own bedroom to houseparties and finally to the stage. Let me be your guide.

My accomplice in this you may have heard of. His name is Akonite and he carries with him over a decade of DJ knowledge. He's played in a headliner role at Anthrocon. He's old school and has god damned technique and a wealth of knowledge. He also happens to be Vancoufur's Conchair, if you didn't know.

Come out. Get started. Earn your place.
