“Whether you're making a playlist for a friend, yourself, or to share in a club setting, as a DJ…your No. 1 task is to know who your listener is. What is their vibe? Are they more music savvy, craving new sounds they haven't heard before and rare selections? Or are they someone who goes ham to the radio all day? Are they all about future sounds or do they have a penchant for classics? Once you have this sort of figured out you can move forward with some direction.”
