Selection vs Flow: Knowing that they are both important which has priority int your DJing or are they intertwined too tightly to distinguish? I'll be the first to answer. I believe that the song selection is what gets dancers to the dance floor; while the flow keeps them wanting to dance again and again. Of these two aspects of DJing, the song selection is the easiest. If we listen to enough music from a wide variety of sources, we can come up with a good list of "hits." As for the flow, there is more to it than most people understand, including beginning djs. Having a good flow does not only mean playing the songs in the proper order based on the vibe from the crowd, although that certainly is an important part of it. However, it also means controlling the tempo, so as not to sound choppy. Lastly, it means controlling the volume levels so that it is is consistent. Most dj software will analyze and regulate the gain of the songs so that if the controls on each side are in the same position, the sound should be very smooth. However, because of certain instrumentation, good djs always check the meters of the track in cue so and make slight adjustments to the trim. So, the answer the question, I personally believe that the flow has a higher priority for me.
