Free Beginner DJ Tutorial – Denon DJ Prime

Why phrasing is so important when mixing!

In this free DJ tutorial taken from our Denon DJ Prime – Beginner DJ Course you will learn how to layer songs together in phrase. This instantly improves any transition as the two songs change together. While one song breaks down during the outro the other song builds up through the intro and so on. Listen to how this works in action with songs from our exclusive Crossfader Music Pack (sign up here for the download).

You can test out this technique and follow along with this tutorial after downloading the Crossfader Music Pack.
