    Episode 233 | Breaking The Code: When DJ Hardware Gets “Leaked”?

    Episode 233 | Breaking The Code: When DJ Hardware Gets “Leaked”?

    How do you take it to heart when someone asks you to keep a secret?  If it’s a close friend, does that matter more than a casual acquaintance? 
    What about trade secrets at your work place?  Do you share the secret recipes with your friends and family?  If you have the inside on the next big piece of tech hardware, are going to break that news on your MySpace Page to let all your friends know? 
    In this weeks episode, we discuss a recent incident within the DJ space where a new piece of hardware was leaked to the public, several days in advance of if official release date.
    To most DJ’s out there, it’s not a big deal.  As a matter of fact, it’s probably a bonus to get the inside scoop on new kit!  However, for content creators, honoring embargo can have a huge negative impact on your reach vs those that chose to “leak” information!
    Tune in as we discuss these recent events, and also cover some news on the problems that Ticket Master faced this past week when tickets for the latest Taylor Swift world tour went on sale.  The long waits in line and the high processing fees even caught the attention of a member of the United States House of Representatives.
    Taylor Swift Ticketmaster fiasco is part of a bigger problem in the music industry.

    As a mobile DJ, we do our best to provide clients the best quality of service at the best price based on our respective markets and the experience we bring to the table. You send out the contract, and then the client offers what friend of the show FireCat451 calls ‘Insult Money’ other wise as a Low Ball offer!
    During this weeks episode, Mo, DJ Serrato of Phoenix, and DJ Freeman of Greensboro jump online to have a conversation about things you can do in your market to avoid you catching a case of the Lowball Blues!

Always Learning

Even So I've been DJing for over 8 years, it's always good to learn more...

Athonia C. ,

good stuff but need more modern music needle drops

I love this podcast and even subscribe with a monthly payment to thei Patreon "After Party". This gives us an additional hour of information relevant to the modern workign DJ. My favorite parts are the equipment reviews. What's missing? WE need more more samples of new releases. There don't seem to be any podcasts, at least in my searches, that highlight the new music releases from Beat Port, Juno Download, Traxsource and WhatPeopleListenTo.com. I'd think those companies would love it if you auditioned a few tracks each week, even if it was only on the "After Party" subscription audio. If there's a podcast that suits this purpose please let me know.

From the heart, real and useful. Thanks.
