Aside from networking, it is imperative to have excellent communication skills with people over the internet as well as face-to-face. As I tell many up and coming artists that ask me, if you are truly passionate about your art as well as becoming a DJ, then that will naturally come through in the way you talk to people. You should be able to explain without thinking what club you would like to play at, who your biggest inspirations are and why, where you see yourself in 5 years as well as how you’re going to get there. As well as these tips outlined above, you really do need to take absolutely every single opportunity that you get and with each one you get, treat it as if you are making a first impression. Because first impressions never lie!
