It’s been a tough couple of years for DJs. The pandemic that derailed all of our plans throughout 2020 and 2021 hit the nightlife industry particularly hard. Clubs were some of the first places to close and one of the last things to reopen, and although we’re almost back to normality now, the effects on the industry are still being felt.

It also changed the face of DJing somewhat. With clubs shut, many pro DJs went online – finding outlets to stream, mix and connect with an audience without being in the same room as them. While streamed DJ sets are nothing new, many artists who might previously have never heard of platforms like Twitch found themselves dealing with a fresh reality. This issue, with our Art of DJ Mixing cover feature, we’re here to help you update your skills for 2022. Whether you’re mixing in a club, on the airways or online, we’ll update you on the need-to-know gear and techniques.
