DJ Tutorial – MING’s Multi-genre Mix Pt. 1 – Preparing the Mix

In part one of this two part video, MING explains how he plans for a multi-genre mix. MING uses a combination of Mixed In Key and Rekordbox to analyze and prepare his tracks in this tutorial.

MING’s Multi-genre Mix Pt. 1 - Preparing the Mix

Involved in the industry since the mid 90s with his Ming + FS project, MING is a true music business veteran. His Madhattan Studio Vinyl independent label was operational from 1997-2006. Now his digital distribution label, Hood Famous Music features some of the most exciting new EDM out there.

Switching between BPMs seamlessly in a mix can be a tough technique for DJs to master. In part one of this two-part video tutorial, MING shows some methods of doing so using Mixed in Key, Rekordbox, a Pioneer DJM900NXS, and Pioneer CDJ 2000NXS. The example transitions he uses are from his Exclusive Mix 002, available to stream below. Stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow!
