(Русский) Результаты DJ Mag Top100. Держитесь крепче!

В ночь с 19 на 20 октября на Amsterdam Dance Event состоялось знаковое событие для клубной культуры планеты – объявление результатов рейтинга лучших диджеев и продюсеров планеты.

Напомним, что с 2007 по 2010 первая позиция DJ Mag Top100 c завидной регулярностью доставалась Армину Ван Бюрену. Затем в 2011 пальму первенства вырвал David Guetta. В 2012 Армин снова стал первым. Но не в этот раз. Согласно голосованию любителей клубной музыки со всего мира, первым диджеем планеты по версии DJ Mag стал голландец Hardwell.

25-летний Robert van de Corput определился со своим призванием еще в 13 лет. А в 14 его уже приглашали играть в лучших клубах Голландии. На международную арену талантливый продюсер ворвался благодаря бутлегу на трек Robin S vs. Steve Angello и Laidback Luke «Show Me Lovevs. Be». В историю электронной музыки вошла и серия компиляций «HardwellpresentsRevealed», все части которой распродавались как горячие пирожки. А чего стоит феноменальный ремиксерский талант Hardwell? Каждый его ремикс затмевает оригинал в несколько раз. Неудивительно, что фирменный house by Hardwell полюбили не только клабберы, но и профильные СМИ, то и дело воспевающие достижения молодого продюсера. Нынешний год был для музыканта особенно успешным. Скооперировавшись с Tiesto, Hardwell целый год взрывал Beatport новыми треками. Что из этого получилось показывает рейтинг DJ Mag Top100.

В целом же первая пятерка DJ Mag Top100 2013 осталась неизменной по сравнению с прошлым годом. Шведский самородок Avicii сохранил свою третью позицию. Tiesto спустился на 4-ю. Замыкает счастливую пятерку – заслуженный хитмейкер David Guetta.
А теперь аплодисменты – сразу на 10 позиций в DJ Mag Top100 поднялся наш земляк Omnia (48). Поздравляем!

5 Rules of Succes from Ferry Corsten

1. Be creative

This sounds really logical but it really is one of those things that I think is important. If you are not creative and sound just like the rest then you will never stand out. I always try to keep this in mind whenever I am producing or DJing.

2. Have fun

If you don’t have fun in the thing you are doing then you should stop and find something else to do. This isn’t even about being a producer or DJ but anything work related in life. It is something that you are doing for a big part of your life and if you are not enjoying it then what’s the point?

3. Don’t let others influence you

Always think and act for yourself. Of course you can take advice from people but don’t let them completely influence you. Always stay true to yourself and the things you are doing.

4. Appreciate your fans

Your fans are so important as they are not just buying your music and tickets to your show but also promoting you to their friends. Worth of mouth is one of the best ways to be promoted so really appreciate your fans.

5. Be critical on your own work

As it is getting easier and easier to for people to start producing and djing these days it is also easier for people to be less critical on their own work. We receive so many demo’s each week a lot of the stuff that we receive just isn’t finished. It’s heading into the right direction but because people just aren’t critical on their own work they send in material that isn’t suitable to be released yet.

First feedbacks from our users: Vigil Coma

Vigil Coma: Registered at gigmngr.com about a month ago and last weekend received first gigs wit hthe help of this service. I think this service is going to be huge! Gigmngr is a missing point between artists and event managers, which we needed so much.

5 Rules of Success from Logistics

1. Dedicate as much time as possible to your craft. Given the sheer amount of people making music these days the ones who tend to rise to the top are usually the ones who work the hardest.

2. Be original – I can’t stress this one enough!! The world really doesn’t need more music that sounds like the current bestselling tracks on Beatport. By far the quickest way to gain attention is to have an individual production style.

3. Send your music to as many people as possible, even those you think might not be into it. I’ve always been really surprised at some of the people who’ve supported my music.

4. Try not to present your music to world until you really feel that you’ve given it your all. Quite often I get sent music by people who have been using a sequencer for less than a week. I’m sure there’ll be exceptions somewhere in the world but so far everyone of those demos has been absolutely awful. First impressions really are everything and this is really worth remembering when uploading your tracks to Soundcloud / sending out demos etc.

5. Have fun and enjoy what you do – this will always shine through in your music. In other words try not to force it if you’re having an off day in the studio, instead spend your time sampling or making sounds. Listening to other peoples music and arrangements can be really useful as well!

5 Rules of Success from Sub Zero

1. Firstly I’d say the most important thing you need to become successful is time ! and lots it!! I read somewhere once that there is no such thing as genius, just people who work really hard and have the time to put in. I think its something like 20 hours a week for ten years till you reach a level in which you could be considered world class. Practice literally makes perfect.

2. Secondly I’d say you need is love and passion for what you do , no point trying to become an artist/dj if your just doing it for the fame or the money, cause you won’t last it out and will soon get bored and move on to something else ..love for music is what makes you sit up all hours of the day and night and sit at home when your friends are out partying cause you have tunes to write and snares to eq ..

3. Good equipment is also essential if you wanna make it , find out and research what it is you will need to make music. Read magazines, look online, be friend to other people with similar interests ..sell you house, your soul whatever it takes to get the money to be able to afford the right computers, speakers, keyboards, software etc ..you can’t make music with a tin can and a drumstick so be prepared to dig deep in your pockets….haha

4. Networking is a massive part of making it, you need to be able to make friends and get on with people in the scene that your trying to get on in. Make yourself known to the right people without being a pain in the ass and harassing people. Be careful and don’t try to hard ! Even being able to party and get drunk with people you can also be favorable i have found , means you are up for laugh and people think your cool and ok to hang with. Again don’t take this too far and get off your face and annoy the shit out of everyone. But really just try and make friends with the right people as this will help you progress and come across good opportunities. Also its amazing what you can learn of other people.

5. I think that about covers it to be honest. But the most important thing is time and sheer hard work that’s what makes the difference ..and in the end that’s what will make you a successful artist !!! Read more →

5 Rules of Success from Danny Byrd

Today we present 5 Rules of Success from famous British drum-and-bass DJ and producer – Danny Byrd, who will be presenting his new album this Friday, May, 24th at at Hospitality Brixton event. You can buy tickets here.

1) Always get up early, you speak to all successful people from all the top CEO’s they are generally up at 7am. Its funny as I always used to think music kept hours that were free and you could start at 4 in the afternoon and finish when you want and only work when your inspired, but I noticed a big difference in my career when I started to get up earlier. Your mind is so clear at 7am that it gives you a big advantage. Im not saying you have to get up as early as this but its as much as having a routine, if your putting in 12 hour days, 6 days a week your going to get somewhere for sure.

2) Know your style of music inside out. Seems a obvious one but in these days where so much dance music is multi genre its tempting to flip between doing house music then dub step etc.. Although experimenting is something id always encourage its important to focus about being the best at one thing first. I’d love to make American hip hop beats but for me to truly do that I would need to move to America to soak up that sound, immerse myself in that scene, go to the clubs etc. Drum & Bass has always been my passion and I’m still learning from it everyday, if I were to take a year off it may take me another year to get my sound back up to the current mix down’s. I know a great singer who is one of the most talented vocalists I’ve worked with but one of the reasons he never totally broke through in the music industry was he never had a sound or style. He moved between different genres and never focussed on what was in his heart musically.

3) Try and always get feedback on your music from people you trust. That doesn’t mean bombarding people with sound cloud links. Im talking about getting yourself out there to people locally to you. Try and make friends with the local DJ’s that are playing in the clubs, they can test your music out. Aim to have a small network of local people that can give you criticism to improve your music. Its funny but when you have been working on a track for 3 weeks straight you generally have no objectiveness on it but your Mum could walk in the room and say that vocal goes on for too long and she’d be right! Once everyone is loving your music in this circle then its time to start reaching out to labels and you will be such a better rounded producer for it.

4) Always be respectful to people regardless of where you are in your career. I always make sure that if I’m in a meeting or interview that I treat everybody the same and with same respect, this sounds like just good manners but you’d be amazed the amount of musical ego’s that seem to forget this. The person who’s doing a student radio show that may not seem worth doing could in 5 years time be presenting the radio 1 breakfast show. If your nice to people to people on their way up they hopefully will always support what you’re doing. If your rude it will never be forgotten either.

5) Don’t take yourself too seriously. This is the hardest one of all, as how do I not take myself seriously when music is my passion? My life!! You can be serious about creating music but when the music is finished and out there, let it do its thing. Never expect too much and good things will come to you. If you have expectations I guarantee you that the results will never work out that way for you. A lot of people when their music isn’t going the way they want it to they end up blaming the record label or the managers, but its important never to be a victim in the music industry as people really don’t care. If you feel positive about your music and feel grateful that people enjoy it only more positive things can come your way! Law of attraction…. Simples :) Read more →

5 Rules of Success from Tomy DeClerque

1) Do it because you love it. At the end even if there is no results as u expected … at least you would have fun in the process

2) Be humble and respect everyone. you never know where your musical journey will take u and with who you will collaborate one day.

3) Love music not musical style. This way you will be open minded and listen to more music and get more input that can influence to your musical production

4) Know your tools !!! there is no black magic box that do wonders … If you know your equipment and your software you you will never get bad surprises and you will always know how to fix or do things.

5) Don’t rush. Some things need more time then others … making music is not a competition … is an art … and if takes time to do it better … then take your time. Read more →
