But mixing requires concentration.

Retail sales is a role where you're required to make people feel welcome, otherwise if you act like a tnuc you'd sell fuck all.

Play what you would want to hear if you were in the audience and then you will get loved for what you play and not just be known for being a crowd pleaser cos that gets boring quickly

Pretty much. If you love what you're playing, someone else will love it too.

x3.

As long as you're enjoying yourself it'll all come naturally, just be animated. Watching a dj playing who's constantly eyes down is boring, no matter how good the selection is. imo. Also, don't pull up tracks. 1 maybe 2 tops. if the MC wants more than that, ignore him. Also, don't let the MC control his mic levels. Should probably pack your own needles too just incase, it sucks, but standard procedure these days.
