Producing music is hard work - and even when it's a daily routine, it can be easy to forget important techniques and elements that make a song a real winner. Today we're rounding up a few lessons from a powerful discussion on Reddit, with some incredibly useful tips for avoiding overlooking key production techniques.
Last time we were talking about Vekked's DJing skills was when he won the DMC World DJ Championships in October. He has since been back to talk to DJTT about buying turntables in 2016, but now he is back with a golden set that continues to show DJs what it takes to make a world championship routine.

Prior to current developments, Engine was Denon's music organizational tool, similar to Pioneer's Rekorbox. Later, Denon stated that the software would support all features of the MCX8000 besides the sampler and beat-gridding capabilities. Now, Denon is ready to elaborate on the Engine 1.5 software and what makes it more than just a playlist manager.
