TLA cannot thank you enough for the interest in our humble station. This community is made up of all walks of life and genres. Respect and honesty is a necessity.  In order to function properly on this station we require everyone to be supportive at all times. We have music from every genre and it’s the team not the individuals that make us special here. We never put a fence up because of someone else’s beliefs in craftsmanship nor taste in beats. We are here to be encouraging and supportive to all inside and outside of TLA. We are a friendly place that needs friendly people that want to learn and also teach. We do not ask for a “mix”.  We want to see you play.  We want a video.  As a station TLA are only looking for what we call ” Preserving the pitch DJ’s ” meaning you are using the pitch to create the mix with Turntables, CD players or even  tape decks if that’s is your choice.

TLA does not look for the perfect DJ but the DJ that is not afraid to exhibit some showmanship. This is better to us than a perfect mix made by a perfect program. We want to know your skill level.  Please be honest with us in what TLA can do for you and what you can do for us! There is a standard that we must meet for our listeners and sponsors. We have offers daily to fill a slot and become a TLA DJ but it might not be for everyone.

Here are some simple steps you can take to ensure you are starting on the right path and ready for the challenge. You need to be registered to The-Lost-Art.com’s site for the use of our site! This is Located on the front page of TLA under Blog, registry or LOG IN!  Create a Profile in which we can get a hold of you through our system. This will be a place for all DJ updates and community for postings! 

1. You need a HD camera suitable for the stations standards. Here is an example of what you need.

 http://www.amazon.com/RocketfishTM-HD-Webcam-Pro-1080P/dp/B005EVBV1M. Some Computers have this built into them. We have no problems with DJ’s using these Cams built in but don’t be the person staring into it while you mix for those that use mixing programs such as Ranes http://serato.com/scratchlive.

 

2. You will need an External Soundcard. There really is no other options to making this work without this device. This is not a soundcard built into your computer. Example.

 

Fast Track Pro – 4 x 4 Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface . With preamps.

<———— http://maudio.com/products/en_…..ckPro.html

                                                                                                                             Focusrite Saffire 6USB Audio ———-> Interface       http://www.musiciansfriend.com…..-interface   ————->

 

 

NOTE* If you know of a better way to stream this other than a soundcard. More power to you. We are not here to set your equipment up to make it function. For more advanced options of streaming sound.* L/R phono- 3.5mm jack cable from computer or amp. We will be able to see your set up with the Video demo. We need to ensure this works properly no matter what system you use.

3. You will need stable internet. Bandwidth becomes an important part of being able to hold a show with TLA. THIS HAS TO BE A HARDLINE! Wireless is a hit or miss with the bandwidth needed our stream.

4. We do not want your perfect mixes. We would rather see if you can mix. You need to open a http://www.ustream.tv/ or another free service that does video to show us your equipment runs. This will also be a demo on your mixing abilities as well. This will be one of the most important parts to you moving along to becoming a TLA DJ.

5. We need a Complete Bio, 3-5 pics, Links to Soundcloud { If you have one } Reverbnation { If you have one }. We will need your facebook link as well as your email address. Phone number is a must!

6. We need to know how you came to know TLA. If you have already been speaking with an admin? Please let let us know who it was. If you do not know any of the admins? Here is a simple list of contacts you may refer to with further questions.

We want to have someone to cover every aspect and angle of this industry. We value people and life and hope you come and join the team. You may post up in the forum as a DJ would or use any one of the other ways of dipping into the social stream with TLA.

Mission Statement.

In October 2010 a New Company Called the-lost-art.com had emerged. In spite of all the Internet Radio stations out there. This company Demanded that it could do a better job to Promote Music in a Respectful and more honest way. The Lost Art had already had over 7 years Radio Experience and over 20 years of Mixing. With the Help of Many other Music lovers, we ban together to make a better world for all involved in the lost art of Mixing! This is the FIRST Real Live VIDEO/TV Station that solely Drives the purpose of Keeping the Mixing Industry Clean. With all the New Technology in mixing devices… Its lost the Real vibe and Heart of why we call people DJ’s! The preservation of a True DJ that puts in the Time to learn this tedious craft is what we represent! To be able to take a Live video Station and provide a better way for sales on the Artist, Equipment to even clothing that our DJ’s use will be on the forefront of the Future. The other Common Mistake that is found in the Radio Industry is Bias Genre Based stations that only allow certain music to be played. We have found this to be the biggest mistake due to the Fact numbers are in ALL Genres make up a bigger piece of advertising.

With the New Technology In video Comes super potential for Major marketing and Advertising! To grow this company In this fashion will Change the way everyone looks at Internet Radio / TV. The most common goal for the Lost Art is Unity, Respect for ones craft, honesty in all we do and proper promotions. To watch others Accomplish the Same goals in one place is Priceless. We will do anything and everything we can to insure this mission never strays away from the common goals.

4. Wait for the next show.  Communication is key between shows. Any gaps cause listeners to leave. It is mandatory for all DJ’s to fill a 2 hours slot unless its been ran through the board for other changes in the slot.
