Melbourne Based Digital DJ Course http://www.topdogentertainment.com.au/2013/10/melbourne-based-digital-dj-course/ http://www.topdogentertainment.com.au/2013/10/melbourne-based-digital-dj-course/#comments Tue, 22 Oct 2013 22:22:25 +0000 http://www.topdogentertainment.com.au/?p=3487 We have just completed our first course in Digital DJing, where 12 students undertook a series of exercises and training to learn, understand and practise what it is to be a Digital DJ. We were thrilled at the results in such a short space of time, with most students going on to purchase a rig and get their careers underway. We have been receiving lots of questions about the course, so have put the following together to give everyone a bit more of an understanding about what we are doing and what you will learn… In the very first week you’ll get to see a demonstration of Digital Gear and learn why the industry and DJs are moving to digital as opposed to staying with Vinyl and CDs.  You’ll also go through the many features and techniques used by Digital DJs and a basic intro to DJing itself. The first week teaches you everything from the kinds of equipment used by digital DJs, such as controllers, computers, headphones and software selection to pre-production techniques. The most unique part is you’re also taught not only how to market yourself but also how to grow as a performer. All of this just in the first week.   In week 2 we get really hands-on with all the practice in equipment and software you need. From installation to audio set up, you’re walked through how to use Traktor Pro and Traktor Scratch Pro –the best and most widely used DJ software on the market.   Then you’re taken through preparation for performances including organising playlists, setting beat grids and also keys and tempo settings. Then onto your actual performance – the instructor Andre is an expert and doesn’t miss a thing when showing new students exactly what to do and when during a performance. You will learn the basics of mixing and understanding what it is that your audience wants. You will leave with an understanding of how to look at and read your audience so you can be in control while performing. He makes sure you’re absolutely prepared and confident in all […]

Every year there are certain gigs I look forward to in excitement as a DJ; the forerunners being Grand Final Day, Melbourne Fashion week and of course Spring Racing week. As all you fashionitas know fashion runs two seasons before it’s released, so it was my pleasure last week to attend and DJ at Sachi and Julius Marlow’s latest footwear launch at Zinc in Fed Square. 12 of Melbourne’s best runaway models hit the catwalk showcasing of the latest delicious designs from these two labels. As a DJ it’s my job to set the tone of how that designer wants to showcase their pieces. Julius Marlow went for sophisticated, polished, timeless and class. As for the music I themed this look with acid jazz (jazz with a chill out house beat) which is contemporary/yet classic.  The songs chosen were Soil Se – and Café Del Flore.  As for the girls at Sachi we went up tempo, cool and edgy with a sexy Lana Del Ray remix of Blue Jeans and of course Goldfrapp’s Strict Machine. To break up the star studded event we had a star attraction come in and stir things up.  To get everyone’s attention I fired of the famous ‘Fan Fare’ and in waltzed Sub Zero – 1992’s Melbourne Cup Winner. He strutted in with such grace that you would expect, strike a pose or two and then strutted back outside to take photos with admiring guests. The night was a complete success and I can’t wait to be strutting around with my latest Sachi heels come Spring Racing! By Claire Elliott

Lady Love at Baroq http://www.topdogentertainment.com.au/2012/05/lady-love-at-baroq/ http://www.topdogentertainment.com.au/2012/05/lady-love-at-baroq/#comments Wed, 23 May 2012 00:32:22 +0000 http://www.topdogentertainment.com.au/?p=2222 Combine nerves, adrenalin and a load of excitement. This is how we (Katie Hansen and Claire Elliott) were feeling prior to our recent gig. We chose to “ease” into the Melbourne nightclub scene by performing a small set at a tiny and virtually unknown bar called Baroq (please note our insane amount of sarcasm). This gig was a massive start for us. Individually, we have both DJed at all sorts of events, but this was truly on another level. Being fresh on the scene as a duo, we were slightly unsure as to how we would be received (especially being chick DJ’s). With that said we proved that we can mix any dude under the table with an absolutely stellar set, combined with a packed dance floor. Featuring some of the hottest female DJ talent Melbourne has to offer, the “Lady Love” event at Baroq was a huge hit. Downstairs, the beats were predominately House/Electro, giving the RnB DJ’s upstairs a run for their money! Never wanting to conform, in true Easy Tiger fashion we combined our own flavour of 80s and 90s mashups with a whole load of attitude. The crowd lapped it up. Stoked doesn’t even come close to describing how we were feeling after the gig. Mark our words little cubs, this is JUST the beginning…… Easy Tiger X
