The best way to DJ Hip-Hop : Hip-Hop Beat Matching-

Become a better DJ-Searched Words


  1. Just one thing that helps me, maybe it'll help you. Get yourself a good healthy collection of house from beatport. Use about 20 or 30 tracks and work at blending them and beatmatching them and learning the beats, bars and patterns. Then you'll have a foundation for all kinds of other types of music that isn't as structured. I love to mix hip hop and breaks and funk but that stuff can't even be beatgrid so I practice with EDM all the time to keep my core skill. For hip hop, just drop it on the 1.

  2. I don't think you can keep them together but they prob aren't meant to be kept together long. Hip Hop isn't EDM. Start listening to Hip Hop dj podcasts like at Brooklyn Radio and then mimic the way they just throw songs in on the 1. Djing is all about picking good tunes anyway, don't ever forget that.

  3. Imagine EDM DJs and Hip-Hop DJs as athletes in different sports. One may not be harder than the other because they require different skill sets; just like, say, football and baseball.

  4. Yeah. I hear ya. Not all djs are the same. If I would treat a wedding reception like a club I'd be out of business real soon. Different beasts. For the first 5 years of my djing I did not beatmatch and always got rave reviews at the end of the night. What matters is pleasing the customer not my ego.

  5. Thats exactly what Ive been doing whole lot of fading dropping but it feels so weak. Im just like 'anybody can do this'. I dont even feel like Im DJing.

  6. By the way I am a wedding so I play a lot of oldies and top 40. Sometimes I don't beatmatch at all.. I just drop or fade.

  7. hi, how does all the dj equipment that you have shown in this video?. I've never had a console dj and I have experience as a DJ, taking into account that I want to pursue a career as a DJ with music mainly hip hop, advise me to take a console like yours?. usually know how can I get hired by a nightclub as a DJ, if you decrease come.aspetto kindly respond primarily to the guy in video.thanks

  8. Beucase when you slow down the pitch the track will still be off. It may be in the same tempo but it will be ahead in timing, so you adjust the timing with your finger 🙂 check out "ellaskins" if you need more beat matching tips 🙂

  9. not the greatest visual quality, but nice simple explanation of the objective here for the noobs amongst us. thanks!
