When the fans of a singer or rapper witness the artist’s career blossom and unfold, they are typically focused on the artist alone. Not realizing that behind the scenes there are many significant pieces to the puzzle, the fans see the artist as an entire package; music, style, interviews, touring, money, etc. One key component we mustn’t forget is the DJ. When artists are seeking a large audience to listen to their music, the DJ is the bridge that connects the two. Whether in the club or on the radio, it is imperative to learn the importance of the DJ’s role in the music industry and build relationships that will result in longevity. One of the greatest feelings as an artist is to see a crowd in the club moving in unison to your song. To hear your song hit the air waves and receive honest feedback is also an indescribable experience.
