What Are DJ Drops?

The expression ‘DJ drop’ is one which is bandied around quite often, but not always accurately. And you may get different answers to this question depending on who you talk to. What’s more, people often ask us this. So, for the avoidance of doubt, here’s a quick reminder.

A DJ drop, in a nutshell, is a short, pre-recorded voiceover sample which gets ‘dropped’ at random into any kind of live or pre-recorded set by the person in charge of spinning the tunes. If you’re a professional DJ, there are few better ways of marketing your brand and developing your business, yourself and your mixes.

Why Do DJs Use Jingles?

Whether you are radio station DJ or club DJ, our DJ jingle should leave no one in any doubt as to who is playing the tunes and giving out those good vibes – so the most important thing is that you get your name in there.

Whatever platform you use to share and promote your DJ mixes, such as Soundcloud or Mixcloud, or however you publicise yourself to club promoters, with drops there’s every chance they’ll remember your name and then look for you online.

You may want to have just your name, some sound effects and extra production, plus either a snatch of words or longer production. Clearly, the more sound effects you add, the more professional you can sound, and you can include more to match the genre and style of the music you play.

You might want to add something like ‘DJ (name) is in the mix’ or ‘Keeping it fresh with …’ to your name in your drop.
