Eris Drew and Octo Octa have shared a free DJing guide, Hot N' Ready DJ Tips Version 1.
Spanning 16-pages, the pair touch on everything from growing your music collection to mixing techniques and negotiating fees. They also discuss intoxication and altered states of consciousness.
"This is not a guide on “this is how you DJ”", Octo Octa said via Instagram. "We want to stay away from telling people what to do. This is a creative process that everyone approaches differently. These are just things we’ve learned over the years."

WE HAVE A NEW GUIDE UP! (Link in bio) “Octo Octa & Eris Drew’s Hot n Ready DJ Tips, Tricks, and Techniques” V1.0 - CW: we also talk about intoxication and altered states of consciousness Eris and I have been doing workshops and mentorship for awhile and have really wanted to put together a guide that goes over a lot of the things we talk about: building a collection, selecting tracks, practicing at home, getting ready to play at the club and dealing with people, etc.. This is not a guide on “this is how you DJ”, we want to stay away from telling people what to do. This is a creative process that everyone approaches differently. These are just things we’ve learned over the years This is the first version of the guide so feedback is encouraged to: questionst4tluvnrg at gmail dot com. I hope people find this helpful! More guides are planned plus updates have fun out there and break the rules! Xoxo Maya
