DJs are extremely crucial to the music industry. Not only are they playing music for an audience, a DJ is primarily responsible for providing knowledge about music for his listeners. Whenever a new artist emerges on the scene, they automatically reach out to DJs in hopes of getting their record spinned.
They are able to let artists know which of their music their fans are engaging with and which they are not. A DJ has the power of transforming an event just based on their tracklist. They can bring the dynamics and liveliness to a musical event in ways no other medium is able to match.
Dj Smiles from Iowa is a prime example of understanding the power of music. His talents have landed him on tour with a few big-name artists, and given him the opportunity to travel the world. Having an ear for music turned into a career that has changed his life.
When asked how he got started in the music business, DJ Smiles stated, “I have always been around the promotion field. I started off doing parties and wanted to find a way to save money. So I used the money from a party and bought my own set of speakers and got it going. Next thing you know DJ Smiles took off. I was good at it. I always knew what the people wanted to hear”.
