"Slip Cue" is an engaging glimpse into the electronic music industry and scene, serving as a catalyst for aspiring DJs and producers to transform a passion into a career - but is it about the people or the process of what they do and how they do it? The documentary encourages anyone who has the drive to become a DJ or producer to pursue their passion for electronic music and explore the avenues and tools they may use to shape their own paths within the industry. Internationally-renowned DJs such as Junior Vasquez, DJ Sneak, the Freestylers, Krafty Kuts, Telefon Tel Aviv, Kate Simko, Kenneth Thomas, and Lady D reveal how long-standing success in the electronic music industry is possible with practice and dedication. The film explores in-depth the beginning steps one can take to become a DJ and/or producer, how to select music and connect with audiences worldwide, the software and hardware used at venues and in the studio, methods for online marketing and promotion, and how electronic music and the scene continually evolve. As technology progresses and it becomes more attainable and economical to create and share music, the boundaries will continually be pushed. What defines a good DJ now may rapidly change as the industry adapts to new musical styles and methods for producing and sharing music, but the passion for the music remains.
