The thing about djing is having the decent hardware to mix on and the most important part is how you use the software, I use a twin deck cd unit and I feel it gives more freedom to move than 12" discs, however, if you don't know how to play in one track to the other you are well and truly ******! My advice would be to learn all types of music from 1950 to 2004 and be able to string together a sequence of music that fits the tempospheric atmosphere and flows so good its good to go that no one is safe to leave the dance floor! If you can do this then you have cracked it and you are an A1 DJ. Anyone can specialise in any kind of music but if you do not know the roots it came from you will find it very hard to find your way to satisfying a decent crowd of people hungry for a good tune!!
