A Year of Writing and Music

Since 2013, I have been an avid blogger writing for the Ambient DJ Service blog.  More recently, I’ve been a columnist for Stacy Zemon’s ProMobileDJ.com website and the Digital DJ Blog.  Each August, I cover the seminars at the DJ Times International DJ Expo in Atlantic City and write a lengthy review of the seminars that is later published in DJ Times Magazine over multiple issues.

While I enjoy the written word, my favorite mode of artistic expression is music and recording dance mixes.  These projects take longer to create.

This blog lists some of my best articles and mixes of the year. The educational articles will be particularly helpful to a beginner or intermediate level DJ seeking to grow their business.

For 2016, if you have an article that you’d like to see me write or a mix concept that you’d like recorded, please reach out anytime by email to gregg@ambientdj.com
