Hire The Right Dj Voice For Your Project
All About DJ Drops
It takes a combination of skill and marketing to stand out in the DJ world. You've got the skill down pat, but if you're looking to take your marketing efforts to the next level, look no further than our professional DJ drop voice actors to help you get there.
DJ drops are a DJ's ultimate marketing tool. DJ drops are recorded voice overs performed by voice actors that say a DJ's name and/or catchphrase that can be added, or dropped, seamlessly into DJ mixes. Whether it's in a live show, a mix shared on an online streaming platform like SoundCloud, or a press kit to be sent out to club promoters, using a DJ drop not only gets your name out there, but with a little creativity, it can also increase your chances of being remembered and sought out long after your set ends.
Creating a memorable and impactful DJ drop takes a certain set of skills. Perhaps you have the perfect catchphrase at the ready but you just can't get the read right? Maybe you're looking for a completely different vocal quality from what you can deliver — whether it's a male or female voice, or a different accent, age range, or style? Or maybe you are looking for a distinctive voice that stands out in the crowd? No matter what you are looking for, a seasoned DJ drop voice actor can take your creative direction and deliver a DJ drop that fits what your mix needs.
When it comes to your DJ drop, you can choose between two main styles of recording: the dry recording or the wet, also known as fully produced, recording. The dry recording is simply the DJ drop voice actor's read of your script with minimal vocal or sound effects and production. A wet, or fully produced, recording includes vocal or sound effects as laid out in your creative direction.
While the style you choose is up to personal preference, many DJs prefer a dry DJ drop because of its versatility. A dry drop can be laid over any style of music and allows for greater experimentation on the fly. On the other hand, wet DJ drops are well suited for ear catching introductions that stand out, or when created with specific genres of music in mind where a fully produced DJ drop wouldn't seem out of place. Whether you choose a dry or wet recording, or a combination of the two, our expert DJ drop voice actors can give you the professional sound you're looking for.
Today's audiences don't want repetition. The best DJ mixes feature a variety of sounds and keep their audiences hooked throughout the entire set. For instance, many sets feature multiple styles of voice over in their DJ drops, from whispers, to shouts, to more announcer style reads over the course of the mix. When hiring your professional DJ drop voice actor, look for someone who can deliver their reads in a number of styles, or consider hiring multiple voice actors with unique vocal attributes to really make your DJ drops stand out. From energetic to sultry and everything in between, you'll find the style you need on Voices.
