DJ Sets

DJ Sets are special, curated lists that are designed to play in a specific order. The songs are sequenced to sound great one after the other, with a consistently flowing BPM and custom cue points to make tracks mix together perfectly. This makes DJ Sets the perfect solution for group fitness classes and a budget-friendly alternative for live bands or DJs.

While in the venue, your staff can manually queue these lists, choosing how long they should play for. At the end of the session, your music will seamlessly revert to your normally scheduled lists to ensure there are no gaps.

With over 4 hours of content each, DJ Sets will always sound fresh. Just change the starting song in the list for a completely different set of tracks when they are queued.

When should you use a DJ set?

DJ Sets will immediately put the focus on the music, entertaining the crowd with no filler, all killer songs – just as if a DJ were playing or entertainer was present. Here’s a snapshot:
