"I am so excited to bring you my masterclass DJ course! In it, I'll show you how to perform every one of my signature transitions, teach you all of my tricks and techniques, and give you tips to help you be able to DJ just like me. Let's go!"
James Hype
  • How I set up my gear, and the functions that really matter to me  - It’s crucial to have your gear set up the right way if you want to DJ like I do. Once I show you the features and functions that really matter, and how I use them, you’ll immediately begin to understand how I DJ. Soon you'll be using YOUR gear in new, exciting ways too
  • The secrets behind all of my best-known transitions - I’ll show you EXACTLY how to perform my best-known tricks, including never-before revealed breakdowns of signature routines such as my famous Daft Punk “One More Time” vs FISHER “Losing It” (over 2m views on YouTube) and many more
  • The individual skills you need to move your DJing to the next level - How to master loops, hot cues, keymixing, quantize, filters, spinbacks, pitch & tempo, “fader dexterity” and other features and functions of your gear, to move WAY beyond beatmixing
  • How to create incredible, mind-blowing build-ups - Learn how to use every feature of your gear to make your crowds “scream for the drop”. Learn how to push your gear to the limits, using wild pitch changes, crazy crossfader action, even your start/stop buttons, to add tension and excitement... before finally letting them have it when YOU choose to!
  • The way I build my exciting live mashups and remixes - Just like in gaming, it’s the killer “combos” that move you away from the rest, and put the real power in your hands. I’ll show you how to combine the individual tricks and skills that I teach you, so you can easily create live mashups and remixes of your own, that blow your crowds away
  • The easy way to DJ using four decks - Most modern DJ systems have four decks, but few DJs use them all. I’ll show and teach you my “four deck system”, explaining how I use the “extra” decks (if you want to play exciting, dynamic sets, you NEED to start doing this)
  • The unique ways I use acapellas in my sets - I’m famous for my creative use of acapellas - for me they are the “glue” that holds together my transitions. From start to end I’ll reveal to you how I find, prepare and incorporate acapellas in my sets, including my method for making “problem acapellas” work. Soon you’ll be able to use your favourite acapellas exactly how I use mine
  • How to use effects to add excitement to your DJing - Whether it’s using echo to make things sound epic, or using the “noise” effect to build tension, you’ll learn exactly where, why and how to incorporate effects 
  • My “track elements” approach to DJing - I do not see songs as “complete things” when it comes to DJing. Instead, I approach them as containing “elements”, which I can pick and choose from to create my sets. I’ll teach you this method, which is a big break from how some DJs play, but is key to my style of DJing
  • How to perform like me on any DJ controller - The way I perform does NOT need four pro decks and a pro mixer. I’ll show you how to use any controller to get results like mine, even the smallest controllers, with tricks and workarounds for when you don’t have access to the same features. DO NOT let your gear hold you back!
Across its nine modules, 48 core lessons and 53 demosJames Hype's Mixing Skills is a masterclass, a unique, complete insight into how James DJs, to help you play 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 fastest-rising DJs.
Inside The Course - Module Breakdown

Module 1

In this module, you’ll meet James and learn about his journey to where he is today. What decisions did he make that helped him climb from under 18s party promoter to international DJ and producer, and one of the most respected technical DJs in the world? And what rules does he live by to stay at the top? It’s all here...

Module 2

You can’t just jump in and learn a few tricks and expect to be able to DJ in the way James does. There is a lot of preparation that goes into being able to step up to the decks and deliver the kind of energetic, fast DJ sets he performs - so in this module, you’ll learn how to set yourself up to be able to DJ in this way.

Module 3

In this module, you’ll work on some of the important basic building block of James’s style - things like crossfader, the echo effect, basic use of acapellas, adding DJ drops, and using the faders to cut elements in and out of the mix. By the end of it you’ll be well on your way to incorporating some James Hype-style techniques in your sets.

Module 4

This module builds on the skills from the previous module. By the end of it, you’ll have learned the iconic “Hype Loops” move - the way James grabs a sound, twists and manipulates it, and then uses it to build tension and excitement in his build-ups before the drop.

Module 5

It’s time to start bringing some of your new skills together as we begin to work on “combos” - combinations of techniques that together make up complete transitions. These are moves that you can apply to your own DJ sets immediately, exactly as they are, or adapt to use with your own music.

Module 6

Now you'll start ramping up the skills, as you build on the full transitions taught in the previous module with some more complex arrangements and combinations. You’ll be starting to use extra decks more frequently by now, and moving more into restructuring and mashup territory…

Module 7

In this module, James teaches three of those world-famous routines. He even adds in at the end some special training on his latest “forearm” DJing technique! You’ll learn that these are perfectly achievable, having followed the training this far. Those routines you didn't even understand at the start of the course are now within your reach!

Module 8

Here, James demonstrate some of the skills taught in the course, but this time using small and medium-sized DJ controllers. Seeing it done is the best way to be convinced, so get ready to be amazed at what’s possible on ANY gear. There are routines in here that are new, too - so follow this even if you own CDJs...

Module 9

To end your course, James shares with you ways that you can improve your DJing journey in three big areas: gigs, social media, and livestreams. After all, if you are going to give your DJ skills a considerable shot in the arm by learning all of this world-class stuff, it would be a shame to not, well, show it off to the world!

 🔥 Bang Up To Date - New Lessons Added! 🔥

New Transition Lesson - SANDSTORM MASHUP: 

“I love Sandstorm, but I can’t play it in its original form nowadays as it sounds dated so I made my own live mashup!” This one went viral with over 5 million views and it's easy to see why - here James teaches you how to do it in this brand-new lesson

New Transition Lesson - GET CLOSER SET OPENER: 

James does not normally go for intricate, difficult set openers - but for Get Closer London, with cameras close-up from the start, he knew he had to change that - and boy did he change it! Now for the first time ever, he reveals and teaches the awesome opening routine from that show. 

New Transition Lesson - HOLD UP MASHUP: 

This lesson has everything you need to learn how to perform this fast-fingered creative mashup transition. You’re going to have to get those “arcade button” skills out to master the start of this - but once you do and this one drops, your crowds will love you for it.

You want to learn how to play James Hype’s world-famous routines, direct from the man himself
They are some of the most copied DJ transitions on the internet, but never has James taught his routines to anyone before - until now. If you want to perform like the best, it pays to learn from the best...

You’ve watched modern quick-mixing DJs like James playing, and longed to understand what they’re doing
You can’t begin to learn a new language (for instance) by listening to an excited sports commentator - you need to start with the basics, and slowly work up to the crazy stuff! And learning DJ skills is no different. This course demystifies 100% what James is doing, from the first steps, through the basics, to simple “combos”, and then harder stuff - so by the time it gets to the trademark tricks, you’re totally ready to learn!

You want to learn cutting-edge modern DJing as it’s done by the very best today
James is an acknowledged master of the craft, squeezing every inch out of himself and his gear. He is the DJ’s DJ, respected by so many of the biggest names for being somebody who truly pushes boundaries. He is exactly the right person to show you how to play like this.

You’re interested in learning the truth behind what it’s like to be an A-list DJ
James reveals for the first time here so much of his life at the top. You’ll learn about all the behind-the-scenes work that he does day-to-day, meet some of the people who help him, hang out in his studio, and his home... James holds nothing back, making this course quite unique.
If this course only taught mixing, it'd be incredible in itself - but it contains so much more that that! To make sure it gives you more than what you need to learn to do this fully, the course also includes...
  • How to keep dancefloors full, while always playing what YOU want - Some DJs “play it safe” to please their crowds, while others “clear the floor” trying to play the music they love. James has developed a way to both play the music he wants AND keep the crowd screaming for more. Throughout the course, you’ll learn his secrets for doing both, so you can pull off this tricky feat too
  • How to put on a performance that truly connects with your crowd - DJing is about so much more than music and mixing. How you present yourself to your crowd - how you behave behind the decks, and the energy you give off - makes a huge difference to the success of your sets. James shares all his secrets of “putting on a good show”, over and above just getting the music and mixing right
  • How James discovers and prepares his music - Want to know how pro DJs do this? James shows you how he finds his tunes, and what he does to get his music ready to DJ with. You’ll learn by watching EXACTLY how he downloads, beatgrids and labels his music, how he adds cue points and pre-prepares loops, and more. This is a huge part of what lets him DJ the way he does
  • James’s unique way of building playlists - Whether it’s for live gigs or livestreams, James has specials way of building playlists, that let him access the tunes for his signature transitions fast, while also letting him be spontaneous. Finding the right tune to play next quickly is a key part of DJing, and James explains exactly how he does it
  • Tips on social media, livestreaming, building an audience, and more - James shares his “ten rules of DJing”, letting you into some of the lessons he’s learned to get to where he is... He has never revealed these secrets of his success anywhere, to anyone, before!
"What will I learn from this course?"
You’ll learn exactly how James Hype DJs. You’ll learn how he discovers, chooses and prepares his tunes, how he organises playlists, how he comes up with his famous 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 James, can I still do this?"
Yes. This is not about DJ gear. Not only does James also show you how to do what he does on DJ controllers (including an entry-level one), but his whole philosophy is 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 right now is the basics. (James 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 dance music, and you want to be able to DJ likes James 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.

“Making this course with James was super exciting, not least because of the amount of information he reveals. We were expecting him to want to teach his routines, but he was so keen to share everything else to - even an interview with his ‘right-hand man’, Gucci! It is a true behind-the-scenes, as well as a valuable mixing course. Oh, and it turns out that James is a great teacher, too...”

Phil Morse - Digital DJ Tips Founder
We have over 35,000 students in 168 countries. Here is some recent feedback from some of them about this course...
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, James Hype's Mixing Skills 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.
