CAN YOU DOUBLE DROP!

The concept of double dropping is you play both chorus's together at the same time. Now I'll be honest this is risky as quite often the chorus is the most intense part of the track so putting big bit on big bit can often sound messy, however that can depend a little on the genre you are playing. So for instance if you are playing banging EDM or tracks where the chorus's have a lot going on, then you may have difficulty getting double drops to work and it may be easier to do what the pros often do and that is either replace the drop completely or mix in after the chorus (both taught in my courses): https://www.clubreadydjschool.com/club-ready-dj-course/

However if you are playing tracks and the chorus's are not too intense (eg: the deeper kinds of house) we can often use the chorus as a platform to do our transition which can be a really exciting way to mix as it is not as common as some of the other transitions most DJs do.

WHAT TO BE MINDFUL OF WHEN DOING DOUBLE DROPS

  1. Careful that it does not sound too busy
  2. Map your tracks in advance with cues and find tracks that go well together
  3. Are the songs in key
  4. How long will you play both together for
  5. Control which is the dominant track with your EQ
