There are now so many DJs in Australia that it is hard to keep up with them all. The emergence of rave and breakdown music in the late 80s was the tipping point for Australian DJ’s. Since then there has been a continued growth of interest in breaking and rave music, especially from overseas. In fact, back in the United States breakcore and techno have become popular here just as much as in Australia. So now both sides have taken off in popularity.
With more electronic dance music dj’s coming to the country every weekend it has become harder to keep up with them all. The last few years have seen an enormous amount of growth with more people turning up at clubs to listen to electronic music. The explosion in club culture has also increased interest in electronic music. More people are now interested in electronic dance music as a competitive pastime as well as just a way to relax after a stressful day. It is almost a shame that when you see people spinning tunes to the feel of heavy metal on their iPods and scratching their heads with wild mixtures of beats it seems like they have come straight from an acid fueled rave.
The good news for Australian DJs is that the growth rate of their audience has remained fairly constant over the past few years, in fact it has even increased slightly. This means that despite the increasing popularity of electronic dance music in Australia it is still a vibrant industry that is growing every year. And with such a large number of Australian djs making their way across the world to tour and play, it means a larger pool of artists and more opportunity for promotions. Australian DJs make their money, not selling out clubs but creating hype and excitement around new albums and tracks. So while the interest in clubbing may have waned a little bit, it is still on the rise and the Aussie underground is only getting bigger.
While there are many advantages to being an up-and-coming DJ, starting out in the industry can be a pretty tough feat. In order to get the recognition that is necessary to break free from the shadow of his competitors, an aspiring artist needs to be well versed in the industry’s various aspects and have some real talent. For many people, this translates into studying for multiple degrees and training in numerous instruments, but this isn’t the only consideration for successful Australian electronic music djs. The sound engineer in particular needs to know how to record a track without sacrificing the quality of the final result.
While a good understanding of electronic music and what it takes to record it is important, it doesn’t automatically mean you’ll be an excellent producer. Many djs seem to think it is all about the kit and samples they’re using, but to be an amazing DJ you need to have a flair for engineering as well. You can study from programs, read books, and listen to programs, but if you want to be really great at what you do then you need a mentor. This is where the mentor comes into play. An Australian dark alternative outfit named the “Au Reviori” has been sending their very own DJs to training programs run by professional sound engineers in order to teach them everything they could ever want to know about the craft.
One of the best ways to find local electronic music djs is through the internet. There are a number of web sites where aspiring djs can go to find out more about the types of events that they might be interested in. There is even an online community of Australian dance music DJs where newbies can learn how to contact their local electronic music in and see what they look like. It’s a great way for you to get a feel for the type of DJs that are available in your area because there is often a lot of feedback on the websites. You can also learn a lot more about the types of gear that DJs use and whether they are experienced in mixing the different elements of electronic music. You will be able to tell a lot about a particular DJ by the type of club or party that they regularly appear at and also what kind of equipment they tend to bring with them.
Another way to find good Australian electronic dance music dj is through the local clubbing and barbing scenes in any area of the country where there is a population of Australian residents. It is often a good idea to join in on these events with friends so that you can get an idea of what kind of DJ is more likely to get you all excited and chatting. If you’re looking for an Australian DJ, you should try to stick to clubs and pubs where there is a focus on local nightlife. These are the clubs and bars where most locals are actively involved in clubbing and dancing.
When looking for an Aussie electronic music is, it is also worth keeping an eye out for events in touristy areas which are often hosted by well known local artists and bands. Many DJs operate within this niche and are more than willing to set up an event in order to attract tourists and local residents alike. Taking part in these events can give you an opportunity to meet up with other DJs who may also be searching for opportunities to promote their local area. The more exposure your band and artist get, the more chances of them getting the attention of producers who are looking for new talent to add to their already impressive discography.
