To be able to DJ at Slipmat you need to get invited by another Slipmat DJ.
The invitation process is designed to weed out those who are not willing to make some effort to be a part of our community and also to teach you the basic philosophy of the site.
The process takes somewhere between a couple of days to a couple of weeks, depending totally on your own effort.
1. Register as a listener
First you need to create a listener profile and link that profile here on Backstage by logging in with it.
Note that this profile is your listener profile and not your DJ profile. The latter you can create after you are invited. Your profile needs to be filled out fully and properly.
2. Join the mailinglist
Join the DJ email list with the primary email of your listener profile. Your profile will be linked to the list via this email so make sure it’s correct one or it’ll not be found and your invitation cannot be sent.
3. Participate in the community
Final step of the invite process is probably the hardest but also the most rewarding. We want our new DJs to learn the site and the community so you need to participate by joining events and reading and posting here on Backstage.
If you are active, after a day or two you’ll have enough Karma for any Slipmat DJ to invite you in. You can find mentors who can invite you here from Backstage but also from the community chat and all live events - just pop in and introduce yourself! After you find a DJ who is willing to endorse you, they’ll send you the invite and help you run your first events on Slipmat.
On the other hand, if you get bored and haven’t been active in a couple of weeks, your application will be deleted and your email will be removed from the email list. We won’t store any of your private data and won’t bother you ever again. We value your privacy, you can delete your profile and all our data any time you like.
Following your invitation status
To make sure the invite process moves forward, you need to follow your invitation status. You can check it any time you want here: https://slipmat.io/invitation-status/
This page also helps you to fill out your profile correctly and gives you an URL that you can share with any DJ to help you with the process and eventually endorse and invite you in.
If you have any questions, post them here on Backstage.
For the impatient and those who need more help with setting things up, we now offer commercial support as well.
