Hi All,

So I just moved to to a city where house music RULES. If I started getting gigs in the club scene as a house DJ can I later just use the name that I am building for myself to transition into more of a progressive/trance DJ?

Will I be marked a House DJ have difficulty changing peoples expectations?

It seems like all I have to do is throw together a house CD and boom I'll have a gig tomorrow (I say this because I have met quite a few people that can make this happen, not just from thin air) where as the progressive and trance route will be quite a bit trickier.

I will do whatever it takes but just wanted to call up on the experience of the forum. Any and all advice much appreciated.

Cheers to all!

You wouldn't happen to be in Miami would you? I have been thinking about this question myself.

You can also always evolve from house to progressive house to trance. But this would take a while.

If Prog House is big there, you could occasionally mix in a trancey tune, and see how they react.

Nope San Francisco. There are a couple clubs that play Trance pretty consistently and a somewhat steady stream of underground events but for the most part house, top 40 and remixes, and hip hop rule.

New York and LA seem to be the main spots but I can't stand either.....

D'oh

I remember hearing of a place called ruby sky where some trance djs play.

Maybe if you develop a progressive house reputation and throw in some trance tracks once in a while as the previous post mentioned, you could leverage your already known name to start playing nights at the few trance clubs? From my experience, clubs are most interested in the people you can bring, so if you can do that, i dont see why you cant break into those few.
