The first episode in the return of our DJ Mag Originals series, How I DJ — powered by Pioneer DJ — has premiered today (14th July) with James Hype. You can watch the full episode below.

How I DJ is an in-depth look at the craft of some of the world’s leading DJs. In each episode, we sit down with the artist to explore their musical, technical and creative approaches, as well as their history as a DJ — how they started, their breakthrough moments, and their most memorable sets. We then invite them behind the decks at DJ Mag HQ to give a detailed practical insight into their DJ techniques.

From cue and loop preparation, four-deck mixing and switching up genres and BPMs to creative FX, EQ blends and playlist curation, How I DJ is a deep-dive into the record box and rekordbox of the world’s best DJs.

Previous episodes of How I DJ include Eats Everything, Jamz Supernova, Kenny Allstar and more. Watch James Hype’s How I DJ below, and the full series via our YouTube channel.
