"Hey I'm DJ Angelo! I’ve been an international DJ and innovator for 25 years, and I've always been obsessed with achieving the perfect balance between keeping dancefloors happy, and performing with high-level skill and creativity. It's not an easy thing to do, but my course will show you exactly how to do it."
  • How to play truly creative sets across different genres and tempos - All the secrets to  playing cohesive DJ sets spinning hip-hop, house, R&B, Latin, pop, funk, rock and more, all in the same set, cleanly and creatively - just like Angelo does
  • The scratch techniques you REALLY need to know - Simple lessons to teach you the Baby Scratch, the Drop, the Cut, and the Transformer. These four scratches are all you need to be able to add exciting scratches and vinyl flair to your sets. You CAN do this, and it'll make SUCH a difference to your DJing
  • How to quick mix like a pro! - Learn to switch tracks up really fast in your routines, even using the SAME deck - this is the way modern performance club DJs quickly switch genres and tempos
  • Exciting new ways to DJ with acapellas - Angelo shows you how to switch between an acapella and the track it came from; how to use acapellas to "bridge" between two tracks; and even how to scratch with acapellas to create awesome live mashups
  • How to do beat chasing, beat teasing, and beat juggling - These "deck" techniques sound and look SO impressive, and they're actually really easy to do. Angelo explains how, and shows you simply ways to get up to speed with them
  • Advanced ways to use harmonic mixing and key changes - Not just how to mix in key, but how to actually change the key of your set mid-transition, taking it to an entire other level
  • Using "Tone Play" to construct riffs and melodies - It's one of the most impressive modern techniques, making use of performance pads to "chop up" notes from your tracks to create something new. There are lots of examples for you...
  • Using "Word Play" to surprise and delight your audiences - For Angelo, DJing is about the vocals just as much as it's about the beats and the melodies, and he shows you how to spot clever matches between the lyrics in your tracks and turn them into clever transitions
  • Clever jogwheel/platter and pitch fader manipulation - You can actually "play" notes  by touching the platters with your hands, and by using the pitch fader creatively - Angelo shows you both techniques. When everyone can see what you're doing, crowds love this!
  • How to use "Pitch Play" to copy and recreate melodies in your tracks - Imagine being able to play melodies with sounds from your tracks, using your performance pads as if they were keys on a keyboard. Pitch Play lets you do that, and Angelo shows you exactly how
  • How Angelo uses filters, delays and echoes - Less is more when it comes to effects, but they're still hugely important to this style of DJing. So Angelo shows you the right way to use them - and helps you to understand when NOT to
  • How Angelo discovers and prepares his music, and builds his crates and playlists - All the stuff you could never figure out just by watching Angelo spin is revealed here for the first time
  • How to perform like this on any DJ controller - The way Angelo performs does NOT need four pro decks and a pro mixer. In the course you'll see him using everything from tiny DJ controllers to pro gear. DO NOT let your gear hold you back!
Across its seven modules, 43 core lessons and 58 practice demos, DJ Angelo's Tricks & Transitions is a unique, complete insight into how DJ ANGELO plays, to help you DJ the same way, and to inspire you to develop your own style. It is unprecedented in the insight it gives into the methods of one of the world's best creative performance DJs.
Inside The Course - Module Breakdown

Module 1

To be able to play like Angelo, you need to get “under his skin” and understand the philosophy and thinking that a performance DJ at the top of their game follows. So in this module, he lets you into his story, shares his rules of DJing, lifts the lid on how he thinks about music and DJing… and plays a DJ routine for you containing all the tricks and techniques you’ll learn in the course.

Module 2

Your music collection is your toolbox as a DJ, and so in this module, Angelo shares how he discovers and obtains music, how he prepares his music, how he rehearses and edits his tracks, and how he builds his playlists and sets. He also gives you tips on setting up your gear and software. By the end of this module, you’ll be ready to get mixing...

Module 3

To perform the kind of complex tricks that Angelo is famous for, there are a set of techniques you need to master first and foremost, as they appear throughout many of the routines. So in this module, you’ll get up to speed on things like scratching, beat juggling, and quick mixing using just a single deck! It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done any of this before, as Angelo leads you gently through what you need to know.

Module 4

Now you’ve got a toolbox of techniques, it’s time to start building them into combos you can use in real-world DJing situations. In this module, it’s all about tricks you can perform over tracks - in other words, we’re not yet transitioning between two tracks, instead we're using performance mixing techniques to embellish the track that’s already playing.

Module 5

Acapellas are a huge part of how Angelo DJs, so much so they get their own module. You’ll learn the “acapella switch” (which is a trick that could equally belong in the “Tricks Over Tracks” section), a two-track transition variant of it, how to use acapellas to “bridge” two songs... plus, Angelo introduces you to Word Play, too.

Module 6

Melody glues DJ sets together. Using things like Tone Play, Pitch Play, the manipulation of musical key, and playing with melody to tease and delight, Angelo lifts the lid on so many of the ways he uses melody to bring cohesion and smoothness to his routines. Get ready to learn them all in this far-reaching module.

Module 7

As a performance DJ, of course you simply cannot play at one tempo or in one genre, and so having techniques in your toolbox to alter the BPM (sometimes drastically), and switch between genres, is essential. In this module, you’ll learn how to increase and drop the tempo, and how to make genuinely huge tempo changes.


The course is packed with extras: A full "course mix" for you to use as a kind of audio "index" of all the skills taught; dozens of follow-along practice demos (video, audio and slow-motion) for you to play along with as you improve; lesson variations on controllers and DVS systems so you can follow along on gear that's like yours, and much more...

Additional Resources

This course is much more than just videos. As well as providing you all the info you need to get the music used, there are unique downloadable "cheat sheets" that you can print and refer back to when you're learning the sequences taught in the routines. They ensure your tracks and gear are properly prepared and will speed up your mastery and understanding hugely.

DJ Angelo's Tricks & Transitions is a video course, taken completely online. Its 43 video lessons and 58 follow-along annotated and slow motion demo videos, with audio practice tracks are accessible via any web browser, so you can follow any time, anywhere, on phone, tablet or laptop

You’re a DJ who likes to spin styles like hip-hop, house, R&B, Latin, pop, funk, rock...
This is the first course we've made that teaches how to mix these styles of music. If this is the music you play, this is your chance to learn how to stand out from other DJs by mastering some world-class DJing techniques.

You’re “stuck” for inspiration, and need some new direction in your DJing
We all hit creative plateaus from time to time in our DJing. This course is packed full of new techniques and ideas to give you a whole new way of thinking about how you play, and get you excited about DJing again!

You're a mobile or event DJ, wanting to figure out how to stand out from your competition
If you play "open format" for a living, knowing how to properly mix the music you are paid to play is a sure-fire way of rising above the rest and charging more money for your sets. This course shows you how.

You’ve just always been a fan of DJ ANGELO and want to get closer to him and how he plays
Not only does Angelo teach you ALL of the techniques he's famous for, but you get to learn more about him, how he thinks about and prepares his music, his rules of DJing...
If this course only taught mixing, it'd be incredible in itself - but it contains so much more than that! To make sure it gives you more than what you need to learn to do this fully, the course also includes...
  • A complete "showcase" DJ set from DJ ANGELO, for you to master - This isn't just a load of techniques videos. It is a structured course, based around a "showcase" half-hour DJ set. You'll hear the set, learn the techniques... and by the end of the course, you'll be able to perform every technique it contains!
  • Pro tips on how to perform - Being able to "put on a performance" when you're playing live, but especially when you're livestreaming or recording a set for YouTube, is important. And Angelo is a very visual DJ, someone who is exciting to watch. Throughout the course, Angelo shares tips on how to perform well, to help you be more "watchable" behind the decks
  • Valuable insider info on how to find, organise and prepare your music - Where exactly does a DJ who plays such a wide variety of styles get his music from? What is required to prepare a music collection to be able to DJ with it in a creative way? Angelo shares the knowledge on buying and preparing music, and gets really granular, even down to how to colour-code hot cues...
  • Tips on setting up your gear and getting your software preferences right - Whether you use entry-level gear or pro kit, prefer turntables or jogwheels, and whatever your DJ software, Angelo has all the tips for you on exactly how to set everything up for smooth, hassle-free performing.
"What will I learn from this course?"
You’ll learn exactly how DJ ANGELO DJs. You’ll learn how he discovers, chooses and prepares his tunes, how he organises playlists, how he comes up with his iconic transitions, and how to perform those transitions for yourself. More importantly than that, though, he teaches you how to approach DJing how he does, so you not only master your gear, but start forging your own style, based around your own music.
"I don’t have a pro set-up like Angelo, can I still do this?"
Yes. This is not about DJ gear. Not only does Angelo also show you how to do what he does on DJ controllers (including an entry-level one), but his whole approach has always been about “hacking what you’ve got”. Whether you use a $200 controller or a $2000 one, Serato, Rekordbox, Traktor or Virtual DJ, or indeed you use pro-level equipment, the course has got you covered. 
"I am new to DJing. Will this course be too complicated for me?"
All you need to know coming into the course is the very basics. (Angelo won’t be showing you how to plug your gear in or how to get from one track to the next.) But as long as you are a fan of music, and you want to be able to play accomplished multi-genre sets like Angelo does, you’ll be good: The course is structured in such a way that you will understand and be able to follow it as it slowly ramps up the skill level.
"Will I be locked into any payments, or do I have to do this in a certain timeframe?"
No to both! The price you pay is the full price of the course - that’s it. No subscriptions, no further payments. The complete course, yours. What’s more, it’s yours for life, including any future upgrades. Start today, tomorrow, next year. Come back as often as you want, whenever you want. Take as long as you want to finish it. We’ll always be here to help you, whenever that may be. Buy today to lock in this price.

“As the founder of Digital DJ Tips, I am always looking for fresh ways to help DJs to improve, learn new skills, and play better sets. Making a course with DJ ANGELO is something I've wanted to do for several years, as I believe he is one of the most technically accomplished and exciting multi-genre DJs out there. If you want to learn how to spin styles like hip-hop, house, R&B, Latin, pop, funk and rock, really well, I think you'll love this course.”
Phil Morse - Digital DJ Tips Founder
We have over 35,000 students in 168 countries. Here is some recent feedback from some of them...
There are many choices out there for people wanting to learn DJ skills, from free YouTube videos, all the way up to university courses that demand years of commitment. So why do so many people choose Digital DJ Tips? Here are three big reasons... 


As well as being an authoritative, respected and globally recognised and Serato certified DJ school, has since 2010 grown to be one of the biggest DJ tech websites in the world, with 250,000 unique visitors a month, and established and popular YouTube, Facebook and Instagram channels with over 750,000 followers and we have a popular weekly live DJ TV show, which is watched by as many as 25,000 DJs each episode. We also wrote the book on DJing, "Rock The Dancefloor!" by Phil Morse (an Amazon bestseller). We are right where it's happening.


Since we delivered our very first course in 2011, we've put high quality teaching at the heart of what we do. We have a proven system for teaching that's not only clear so beginners can easily follow along, but also thorough, taking students as far as they want to go, right to pro level. We prefer action over theory, and showing over telling, and we understand that coaching is just as important as information - in fact, information on its own is rarely enough! We also understand that our students have limited time, so all our training is designed to get you results fast, and fit around your busy life.


Online DJ training is unfortunately a bit of a "Wild West". But unlike many of the operations  out there, when you join us, you get much more than just a username and a password. We have a full-time team to make sure you're looked after, and we take our duty of care for you seriously.  All courses have in-course tutor help, right on tap. And if you ever need any extra help, with anything from technical stuff to billing enquiries, know that two of our team members are dedicated only to customer support. And of course, with our StudentHub and StudentLive community, you get to participate in the biggest DJ school student network anywhere in the world.

Just like with all of our DJ training, DJ Angelo's Tricks & Transitions comes with our cast-iron, no questions, 12 month money-back guarantee, which gives you more than enough time to get the results or get your money back - the risk is all ours. 

If at any time in your first year of ownership you decide it's not for you (for absolutely any reason), just tell us and we'll refund you with a smile. Nobody else offers a guarantee like this.
