Be yourself. When making statements with music you run the risk of being misunderstood. Prepare yourself on feeling rejected, it is a part of being original.
Do not support mediocrity. Be aware of the musical excess of our time, and be critical in your selection of music. Find music that will reform the world, not merely please the world.
Indifference is your enemy. Make statements. Demand action and reaction. Never leave your audience feeling indifferent to your music.
If you have come to succeed, leave. Most will fail. So when you do, make sure that your failure is the most spectacular ever.
You must realize that technology is not a shortcut, but rather a distraction, to becoming a great DJ.
Abolish the idea of a “filler” track – music either has a message or it doesn’t.
Never plan a set. It may seem like a safety net, but will inevitably lead to mediocrity.
Let go of your ego. When you do, you will recognize your oneness with the audience, through music and dance.
There is no “one” business model – it’s a lottery. Studying other DJs’ career paths will not make you successful. But, being unique as an artist will improve your chances.
Numbers and systems are great for business, not art. Algorithms will not capture the complex emotional state of the human mind. Focus on what is real to you what you see, what you hear, and what you feel.
Collaborate. The key to reflection and growth lies in sharing experiences.
Embracing the diversity of your audience means embracing the diversity of musical genres.
Never be fashionably late. Acclimating to the venue and audience should be seen as a part of your performance.
Celebrate moral exemplars, but demand high standards and insist on constant development from your heroes.
Respect the value of the learning process it is the first and most important step in becoming a great artist.
