Been DJing on and off for a year or two now. Mid last year I started taking it a bit seriously. Managed to get few gigs here and there. One of the gigs was at a record store/coffee shop type of join, probably the only one where i’m from (Saudi Arabia). I brought my controller and everything.
Seeing that they had turntables, I asked if I can hook up one of their turntables and play whatever records. They liked the idea. I do have vinyl and a turntable at home but they’re collecting dust.
I started my set with some records the owner suggested and I really enjoyed it. Something about the whole process of putting the record in and seeing the label felt very different to me. That whole experience planted the seed of a desire to DJ vinyl I guess.
I did my research regarding the gear and looked for few records on discogs that I really liked. Two days ago I bought the setup and now i’m patiantly waiting for it to arrive.
So is there anyone here whose into vinyl DJing? Any tips? Where do you get your records from?
