Music matters on the way..so i suggest listening to an alternate genre from the gig that you’re doing if you’re dj…iba talaga, you get excited.
Mark suggested that listening to different types of music before a gig feels great. He called it a kind of ritual before performing that makes the experience feel fresh and exciting when you’re up on stage. This helps prevent burnout, so you stay enthusiastic throughout your performances.
He also talked about how it’s important to play familiar songs that the crowd knows, but he highlighted the value of introducing them to new tracks they’ve never heard before. This way, you entertain them while also expanding their musical horizons.
