For anybody that creates music, it’s important to try out different things. Here are 2 reasons DJs need to or should at least try to produce.
1.) You need to understand production to be able to remix other people’s tracks. Remixes are common currency to getting noticed as a new producer. You may not get paid for delivering your first remix but if it is released on a decent label or respected artist it will give you a valuable degree of exposure and kudos.
2.) In order to be able to secure regular gigs and take your DJ career to the next level you need an agent and/or manager. As a new DJ an agent won’t consider taking you on unless you have a decent following on social media and regular releases coming out.”
