Hey everyone! I can’t believe December is already upon us! This is honestly my favorite time of the year: from hot-chocolate-fueled studio sessions, to seeing the lights and decorations all over New York City, wintertime is simply beautiful. That is, after the overwhelming doom of final exams passes… *gulp*
Anyway, December is universally known as a season of giving, regardless of your spiritual preferences. For those of you with DJ’s and producers in the family, I’ve done you the favor of creating a few lists for the different types of DJs in your life. Feel free to mix and match to suit their hearts’ desires. And for those of you with DJ Girlfriends, check out these lists, courtesy of A La Keighla.
Let’s get started!
For Any DJ:
We’re gonna start small. Sometimes, especially with DJs, the most meaningful gifts aren’t the ones that are big, expensive, and flashy. If DJing was a meal, these items would be the utensils and napkins: while they’re small, they make a massive impact on the meal, especially if they go missing. With the constant here-and-there of a musician’s life, gear takes a toll. Stuff breaks, or gets left behind at the club, or even worse, “borrowed” by the guy before you. We really should know better and buy these things in bulk, but that’s why you’re here! Go the extra mile – wrap the cables in some funky tape, make a cool earplug case, or put a love letter on the flash drive. Believe me, we notice these things and it means so much.
