PROGRESSIVE HOUSE

A question I get asked on a regular basis is what IS progressive house? Well, it started like this…

Its 1992 and journalist Dom Phillips is out with his mates where he chances upon a DJ playing type of music he is unfamiliar with.

“I remember vividly that night I went out with friends in Bristol where we first heard what came to be called progressive house.” He recalls, “I remember how exciting the sound was. It was a good time for music

PROGRESSIVE TECHNO

Talking about progressive specifically, it gives a sense of… well, you guessed it, — progression. Whereas in some other genres you just want to skip forward and finally listen to “that drop”,

in Progressive music that sense of progression and immersive building-up is the goal itself. It’s very consistent,

often with no climax or big emotional peaks which other genres typically have.And the difference is not only in aesthetic.

Healthy DJ Lifestyle Changes

It’s that time of year, right? Gym memberships are up, people are having “dry Januaries”, and with gigs a bit thinner on the ground

, us DJs find we’ve got a bit more time on our hands to think about how we can change our lives for the better

– which let’s face it, in our profession usually means trying to get a bit more healthy.

The trouble is, the usual advice all seems so unrealistic (just ask your mum or your doctor what you should do and see what they say):

“Get eight hours of sleep a night” (yeah, after working till 4am?). Don’t drink (hello?).

“Avoid loud music” (sorry doc, do you even know what I do for a living?).

“Keep your stress levels nice and low” (ever had to deal with the fifteenth Beyonce request and a half empty dancefloor?).

And “eat healthily” (what, when you’re in a rush and on the go?).

You get my point. Our profession can be a bloody unhealthy one.

But there is a solution – and it involves a simple dose of realism, and taking a few baby steps in the right direction.

You see, when you make small changes and stick to them, they become habits.

From that new, slightly improved standpoint, you can make more small changes later,

and so on. Over time, you are going in the lifestyle direction you want to go in…

while still enjoying your DJing and music, and still having fun sometimes.

Let me show you what I mean. We’ll look at the five things your mum or doctor might say from that list above,

and I’ll give you simple ways to move towards them, without completely changing everything about yourself overnight.

‘Cos that just doesn’t work. And these do. I know. I’ve done ’em all.Let me show you what I mean. We’ll look at the five things your mum or doctor might say from that list above, and I’ll give you simple ways to move towards them, without completely changing everything about yourself overnight. ‘Cos that just doesn’t work. And these do. I know. I’ve done ’em all.

Sleep in a dark room

That’s it. When you sleep, make sure your room is totally dark.

No glowing LEDs, no light bleeding under the door, no thin, rubbish curtains, no falling asleep with the telly or bedside light on. Pitch dark.

Sleep is ridiculously important (scientists are increasingly linking it to the ability to function properly at all, never mind to be better at what we do),

but as DJs, we often have to sleep in the day, or in rooms that aren’t ours.

Take 48 hours off the booze each week

Not drinking is a valiant aim. It’s also totally unrealistic for most people, especially in the profession we operate in (if you’re one of those who’s managed it – and I’m not saying it’s impossible, we have two in our team here at Digital DJ Tips – well done),

but for everyone else, you probably don’t want to stop, or don’t feel you need to. Fine.

Wear musician’s earplugs

As soon as you have any type of ear issues (and if you’re a DJ, it’s not a case of if, but when),

you’re going to be told to avoid loud music. It’s good advice – but it’s also utterly unrealistic.

That said, tinnitus isn’t fun (again, two team members here can confirm that). So what to do? Our advice is to wear earplugs.

Not the rubbish foam ones you buy in chemists, but earplugs designed for musicians, that reduce the overall volume of the music while still letting a bit of everything through.

Spend a minute breathing slowly a couple of times a day

Hear me out – I’m not going all hippy on you here, I’m not going to ask you to convert to buddhism or go on a meditation retreat.

But stress is a real issue, and we have a stressful occupation (requests, empty dancefloors, not getting paid, being freelance, worrying about our kit failing…).

It’s an issue because when we’re stressed, we’re in “fight or flight” mode. Creativity – what gets us noticed, what furthers our careers, what ultimately gets us paid

– does not like fight or flight mode, not at all. Our brains, basically, shut our creativity down entirely in these situations (cavemen didn’t need to come up with great poetry when running from lions).

Prepare your own food whenever you can

Our profession, our friends, our lifestyles… they all, in my experience of DJs, lead to takeaway food, more than for most people.

And while that’s all well and good every now and then, honestly, takeaways are the crack cocaine of the food world.

They’re designed to make you want more, and quickly.

How much do Dj’s make?

DJs are needed across a variety of jobs – of which performance and pay are dependent on venue, location, and what you need to do.

The average salary of a DJ will be determined by a lot of factors, some of which are the venue and the geographical area of where the DJ is playing,

the experience level of the DJ, the length of time the DJ will be playing, and a few more.

That said, how much do DJs make? Let’s find out!
