Today we have another mailbag!  Your questions, our answers.

1) What are good headphones for DJing?

  1. To help with Question #4 I tend to then dig deep in my vault of remixes. If I’m getting paid to play house music and someone wants hip hop, I’ll play Black and Yellow (DJ Scene Remix), or Whip My Hair (Kingz Harder Remix). It’s not 100% house music but it still keeps the tempo up, it’s a nice little party break, and it’ll temporarily satisfy the ones asking for more hip-hop. But there isn’t a perfect fix for playing against what the owner wants. The best you can do is simply play something everyone will enjoy…such as playing Calabria when millions of requests come…there’s no one on the planet that doesn’t like that song.

  2. Sony MDR-V900 Headphones were so awesome. I rocked those for 6 years.

  3. Useful info on radio. I recently started working on Now997 FM and have been scanning the mentioned sites to see where tracks are going across the US and in my market.
