Communication Is The Game

February 12, 2019 by Christos Nikas
Hey Mr. DJ, A huge welcome and thanx for being here. You are amazing. Technology and innovation keep pushing the boundaries every day, trying to make our lives, performance, and service more comfortable, better, and more effective. There are DJs who embrace it and try to make the most out of it and those who -still- think that tech is the mother of all evil and blame it for their failures. "Everybody is a DJ now" "Real DJs don't use sync" blah.. blah.. blah... Yes, things have changed, and there is a plethora of new tools a DJ can use to step up his (her) game, but technology is not the key factor... [read more]

Millennial Branding and Personality Pt 2

February 11, 2019 by Michael Cordeiro
In the first part of this blog I touched on how Millennial's interact and make connections. They value authenticity and like to follow people's "stories". Millennial's follow You Tubers more than TV shows. A big part of making a connection with them is personality and how you tell your story. Millennial's want to be part of your journey. Recently, I took part in a webinar series from my Alma Mater Johnson & Wales University. The webinar focused on the importance of personal branding and changes in how companies hire and fire personnel. Your online presence will count more than your physical resume in the near future. The webinar broke dow... [read more]

Millennial Branding and Personality Pt. 1

February 2, 2019 by Michael Cordeiro
There's a lot of talk on forums and in seminars about the complexity of reaching millennial couples, especially brides. The way they communicate, socialize and interact is radically different from brides just a decade ago. Are they more difficult? No, we're just not speaking their language. Do they want and value the same things? Yes, they just ask for them in a different way. All the normal communication channels like email, phone calls, snail mail and even Facebook fail to connect with them. My sixteen year old daughter tells me that Facebook is for old people? Say, what? I'm not old, I'm a DJ; we never age. Maybe we don't age but our methods cert... [read more]

The UK Continues to Innovate with the Launch of Mobile Bookmaker and Casino Websites

January 22, 2019 by Mobile Beat
The UK and wider international gambling industry have gone through some substantial changes in the last 20 years. Technological advancements have made gambling more accessible, diverse, and even more exciting since the internet forced its way into all our lives and began disrupting just about everything industry it touched. The first innovation of course, was online gambling itself. This would introduce the pastime to people in a way that had never been possible before.

Are You More Than Just a DJ?

January 20, 2019 by Michael Cordeiro
Remember when becoming a mobile disc jockey required a huge investment in music and gear? Not to mention paying an arm and a leg for a big ad in the local phone book. The extra money was great. Back then I'm not sure how many people really thought of being a DJ as an occupation. These days "everyone" is a DJ. Buy a controller and some speakers to hook up to your laptop and stream music through Spotify and Pandora or You Tube. Book a couple of gigs and now your a DJ. Easy right? That's all well and good if you are just in this as a side hustle. For those of us that have made this a career or want to become full time, more of a business mentality is n... [read more]

Review: The New American DJ MyDMX GO Lighting Control App

January 16, 2019 by Jordan Nelson
If you'd like to see a hands-on video review of MyDMX GO, click here. It's not often that I get so excited about a new DJ product that I make sure I have one in my hands within a week of its release, but when I first heard about the new MyDMX GO lighting control app from American DJ I knew that it was a game-changer. A DMX dongle that connects wirelessly to a tablet app is already making huge strides towards being the most convenient lighting control option for mobile DJs, but one that also requires ZERO programming to use? Even as someone who has written two books on lighting and DMX for DJs, this was something I needed to see for myself. I wa... [read more]
