Essential DJ Skills Pt. 2 w/ Ben Bristow (Space Ibiza, XFM, Kiss) @ BPM Show 2015

As DJ technology constantly shifts and changes, there are certain fundamental DJ skills that will never change. PB DJ instructor Ben Bristow took to the stage at the BPM Show – one of the world’s leading electronic music and clubbing shows – to talk about essential DJ skills including cueing using the platter, using Smart Playlists in iTunes and how to mix in key. With Traktor at the forefront, it’s an unmissable video for any DJs looking to take their skill set to the next level.
