Why DJs Need to do More Than Mix – Spotify Party

Everyone is a DJ. It’s true more and more every day.

But as is the way with technology, the democratisation of the skill does not always lead to dilution of the profession. In terms of DJs, while it’s never been easier to become a DJ, professional DJs are now earning more that ever before in history. Showing the amateur interest drives global recognition.

There have been a few interesting developments on the amateur/consumer end of the scale recently, apps like Pacemaker and Crossfader (Who we’re partnering up with to stream their first UK mixup live on Chew!) allow anyone to get the thrill of the perfect mix with streaming music right on a mobile device. At the same time Spotify introduce their party mode where the software itself can mix your perfect backdrop to you party. 

This means today, more that ever, DJ’s need to do more that just mix.

And my picks of the best places to bikepack, enjoy freeflight and work as a digital nomad. Each week I share a new video update, city guide or live streams with other adventurers I’ve met along the way.
