Default Want to start dj'ing What should i buy?

Hello.



So I want to start dj'ing, I like Drum'n'Bass.



So for starters, one of my friends are dj'ing for like 7 years, and he recomended me to look for Pioneer/Vestax/Technics mixers. But I don't realy get wich 1, what do I need more. Im into music mixing, or maby into creating some music, as I said i realy like Drum'N'Bass and Breaks, so what should I buy/have? I Have headphones wich are gr8 Technics RP-F800.



Sorry but I have used searcher and found that people suggest T Technics SL-1200 (mkII or md3) and some of Numax. I don't realy know, turntables or cd mixers? My friend says cd mixers are better, but he uses Turntables because he plays something like ambient/techno/chillout.



I've red that I need to know what is my music style so here we go:

Breaks: Stanton Warriors, Sway ( I love Stanton Warriors Live @ Fabric Oct 20th mix)
Drum'N'Bass: Ahh, Counterstrike, Noisia, Dillinja, Some of pendulum, Black sun empire, Calyx, Corrupt Souls.

And my D'n'B co-style is DarkStep/Jungle, so I love thoose bad ass bass synth's and loops :X (for example, Corrupt Souls - Trioxin 245, Black Sun Empire - Arrakis, Noisia - Carbon Shock, Dillinja - No future, Dillinja - Fast Car.)

I don't think people are replying to this because there are about 20 on this page if you actually would search. If not try the other bajillion on the page after this.

If you're spinning DnB... I'd suggest getting Techs rather than CDJ's.

Lot's of DnB/Jungle releases are still printed on vinyl. It's one of the few genres that I still buy vinyl from. The DnB culture, in terms of DJ'ing, is predominately vinyl so if that's what you wanna spin, get Technics 1200's.

There are still mp3's/promos that are DnB but there's a lot of good stuff on vinyl.

As for a mixer... I wouldn't be too picky. Get something decent but you don't need like a DJM-800 or something. For mixers, I'd check out Allen & Heath, Rane, Pioneer, or Ecler. I suppose Vestax could fit in there. It all depends what you're price range it. Rane makes super slick mixers though, especially if you're gonna be scratching, the faders are sick.
