What are DJ Drops?
Do you keep hearing the term 'DJ Drops' but not 100% sure what they are their benefits?
Chances are, you're already familiar with the concept but may be associating DJ Drops with another name. Read on for a straightforward explanation of every DJs secret weapon.
What are DJ Drops in deejaying?
A DJ Drop, aka a Name Drop, Voice Drop or Ident, is a short and snappy voiceover or sound that you can use on mixes, live streams or sets. Voice Drops are usually unique to the DJ - containing their name, tagline, or other information. A classic DJ drop is something like: "You're in the mix with + DJ Name" - although you can be as creative as you please! DJ Drops can be made dry, which means you get the raw voice recording or produced wet, meaning they are mixed with sound and vocal effects.
Similar to DJ Drops are Name Tags, which are usually associated with producers. Producers often insert Name Tags into their beats or instrumentals. Not only do Name or Beat Tags offer brand recognition, but they also help producers to retain ownership of their work.
This brings us to Jingles. Although similar to DJ Drops and Beat Tags, Jingles are often sung or mixed with music and are commonly associated with radio shows.
Why do I need to have DJ Drops?
Here are just a few reasons why you should own personalised DJ Drops:
Helps with your name, sound and brand recognition
Adds creativity and energy to your mixes, live streams and sets
You can share vital information such as your social media platforms or website
Adds professionalism to your craft and sets you apart from your competitors
They help to segment your mixes
You can use them again and again
How can I get professional custom DJ Drops, Tags or Jingles?
If you're interested in making a bespoke order, visit my custom DJ Drop page, where you can listen to my British voice demo and find all the information you need to make an order. Remember, each custom name drop order also comes with a bundle of FREE pre-made fully produced drops. You will also find information on other audio services, such as show intros and outros.
Show intros and outros are a lot longer than drops and combine voiceover and effects plus music. Intros and outros are great for all types of content, including mixes and podcast shows.
