We have many years experience amongst our DJs in relation to wedding events. Most people have been to at least one wedding event where the DJ was substandard and had no experience or crowd appreciation. We recognize how important wedding reception entertainment is and how integral a part it plays in the entire wedding package.

Music Genres to suit your party and guest mood
- Requests a certainty
- Crowd evaluation essential
- DJs always thinking ahead
- Wide scope of genres through multiple eras
Short mixes between tracks, look for key signature compatibility, tempo changes work best in gradual progressive changes. Cutting tracks too short can alienate the crowd at weddings so at least 2-3 minutes is preferable.
All good DJ’s should be able to mix from any genre to another or at least think of a popular bridging track to place in between.
Our DJ’s have to prove that they can do this, we have strict and high standards;we do not employ bedroom DJs with no experience.
Birthdays can involve persons from all ages; we cater for birthdays from the age of 16 upwards. Banter is generic and again dependent on the age peak of the crowd. If the event has a high family population then expect friends and family to communicate considerably during the earlier part of the evening.
If appropriate and it is your wish please ask the DJ to make announcements.
Student events can be the most challenging and yet also the most exciting. Students are very quick to adapt to current trends and are often responsible for popularising new themes and styles.
The DJs we field for these events have been students themselves and so appreciate the mindset and demands of this type of crowd.
Whether it’s the end of the year or just a term time party; you’ll be wanting to unwind along with your friends. Take the disappointment out of hiring entertainment that doesn’t make the grade; instead book a pro DJ from Bassline DJs.

Mixing techniques utilising longer mixes with crowd teading elements. The DJ should build positive tension through the musical choice. On occasion at the appropriate moment a chop mix can work crescendo like emotion into the event.
The energy of the night needs to be in constant flux with calculated genre transitions – in plain English – keeping the groove alive and engaging the student crowd with music they connect with and sing along too.
Staccato, short burst announcements, the music and its manipulation by the DJ should account for the mood overiding the necessity for any prolonged banter.
DJs sometimes get asked to do shout outs for groups or an individual’s birthday.
Music played at a Christmas Party
- Modern popular / chart
- Funk and disco classics
- Reggae, R’n’B
- Party classics
- Festive pop songs
As this is a Christmas party, your DJ needs to be able to mix to a high standard, in other words they should have the ability to mix across genres and decades, choosing the right songs that go well together.
The DJs we employ have to be able to mix genres outside dance by using their ears (not looking at or using digital software).
Whilst the music is most likely going to cover an eclectic range, it should have a continual flow with progressive temp changes and style transitions.
It is not uncommon for our DJs to make announcements or to engage with the crowd. We encourage DJs at these events to ask the crowd what they want to hear as well as calling on their wide experience.
Often a DJ may be asked to act as a compare, presenting and introducing people in your Christmas Party with some award or gift.
