I’ve always found it difficult to put into words exactly what it is electronic dance music DJs are doing and how exactly to do it. From the terminology to figuring out where to start.

Step 2 – Beat matching and mixing by ear
Christian Jackson did a simplified video of how to DJ by ear that I think you’ll really enjoy.
