In the year 1935 American radio commentator, Walter Winchell named this new trend in music as ‘disc jockey’. By then mixing with older and newer genre of music along with impromptu additions being made by the singers themselves it had slowly gained good popularity in small towns and bars in US England. It was however in 1943 that a dance party was launched professionally by DJ Jimmy Savite. The dance party took place in a function room of Loyal Order of Ancient Shepherd situated in Otley, England.

Simultaneously, in the same year in France, a Whiskey Go-Go nightclub was opened where the main attraction became the disco music where they too played recorded music. Soon the nightclub which was located in Paris became quite a draw for youngsters. A disc jokey which in short is DJ rose in popularity with several newer inputs and innovation. It was the seamless transition from one music to another that gave DJ better adaptability in any space when compared to other kinds of music.

Earlier, DJs were confined to radio stations and Jimmy Savite too got a full time job at Radio Luxemburg. Soon it gave way to newer music equipment that can play two or more music if the audience so wished. This would mean that the DJs could now boldly and without any hassles prepare and align the beat and the music sources and develop them into unique mixture of songs. It also meant that there was always a smooth transition and rhythms never clashed. Again, it also became quite easy to transit from one song to another without disrupting the dancing movement on the floor.

The popularity of DJs rose as music could be fine tuned and played for the right occasion. It was also cheaper than the live bands and yet the affect it had was magical. Further, DJs could produce strings of old and new as well slow and fast songs and required very little equipments too.
