1- Flash disks
These tiny little storage devices are your best friend when it comes to your gigs! Always and I mean always bring a backup of the same music you have on that flash disk! You never know what could happen! You can manage to lose the device, heck somebody can even snag it when you are performing live!
Sometimes you have such a huge amount of music you can’t fit them all to your flash disk! What you can do is bring your laptop and use it as your portable hard disk for music! Let’s say you are performing live and all of sudden you realize that a track would go really well with this and of course what do you know you didn’t put it on your flash disk! Okay, so you can take your other spare flash disk and plug it in your laptop and copy the track that you were thinking of!
Bring your own headphones! There have been so many times when I would perform as a warm-up DJ. The DJ after me would ask if he could use my headphones! I hate it! You need to bring your own headphones so that you don’t put yourself in an awkward situation asking one of the other DJs for their headphones, which they might not even be so kind to do so!
Study The Venue! If you are playing as a warm-up DJ know what the other DJs play so that your music doesn’t clash with them. Check out their sets on SoundCloud or Mixcloud and see what type of vibe they give to the crowd check which labels they like to affiliate themselves with!
