The Opening DJ

The opening DJ slot is a much mis-understood and chronically abused place. Somewhere thats commonly reserved for the resident DJ’s, up-and-coming artists or maybe just the promoters friend that facies a bash on the decks.

It takes more than a cheap DJ with the beatport top 100 to properly set the tone for a night though. It takes a professional and a music lover, as Jack O’Shaughnessy explains in this old, but still incredibly relevant article from resident advisor: The esoteric art of the opening DJ

    Thanks for the link.
    I would like to know how an opening set ( no specific genre ) is structured .
    Does it go from 22h – 24h ? From 22- 01h ? From 22- 02h ?
