Streaming News:

Two big news about streaming, first off Spotify will no longer work with all DJ software effective as of July.
The second is music streaming is going down during the lockdown due to the coronavirus. Strange that this might seem so but in my opinion streaming music is better for the times you have something to do and it is on in the background but when you have nothing to do then streaming services will take a back seat to Video Streaming services or interactive social networks. If music streaming services had interactive services linked to it maybe people would use it more when there is downtime.

Tips, Tricks and Miscellany:

As a DJ you are probably doing live streams for you fans as there is a lockdown for most clubs around the world and even the UK is not immune to this. But make sure you have these mistakes covered before you start your next live stream:

DJCyberPhilosophy: What Happiness Is Not

Being happy and your happiness are two different things altogether. Being happy is only momentary whereas depending on your attitude towards life happiness can be long term. So what is meant by happiness?

Well let’s start off with being happy. When you achieve something you will feel happy but you do not achieve things every moment of your life so you will not always be happy. Whereas if you went through some calamity and came out the other side still living, and you are glad to have gone through that experience then your happiness level will rise.

Happiness is about not just getting through calamity but also appreciating the experience that you went through because it has taught you something about yourself. You will then gain happiness.

Life is not always as straight forward as you would like it to be. Good never comes in pairs and calamity never travels alone. Some may even say it comes in threes. So when you are confronted with these calamities and yet still achieved something that deserves to be appreciated and your happiness will grow.

That is the difference between being happy and your happiness. So until next time stay safe, stay cool and build your happiness now by appreciating all that you have been through, whether it be sad, aggravating, embarrassing or good.
