The Ultimate DJ Playlist


Ever wondered what it would be like to be a professional DJ just for one day? What would you play, what would your playlist be like? Well, I have had a think about this and have come up with my ultimate DJ playlist for one night only. In compiling this playlist, I thought about what would keep people interested, what would get people dancing, and what styles would suit a party environment. So, with this in mind, on my ultimate DJ playlist, there is a mixture of dance, hip-hop, R&B, soul, funk, techno and a few fusion tracks. It was a lot of fun coming up with this list and figuring out what would work well together in a playlist. DJing is not about just lumping a few random songs together or trying to please people, although you hope what you select will please people, it is about matching songs together and selecting the right mix of tracks. And, with this in mind, I feel I have managed to come up with a good three hour or so set that would be awesome to unleash for one night only.
