The Turntablitz DJ Booth was introduced in House Party, and costs §7129. It can be placed on residential lots or on community lots in any sub-neighborhoods that are present. If Hot Date is also installed, a booth placed on a community lot will spawn an NPC DJ. ("DJ Z-Buffer", a reference to one aspect of object graphics in The Sims). Sims can "Request" that the DJ play another radio station.
If placed on a residential lot, a booth can be used as a stereo, but will have extra stations that are not available on ordinary stereos. The player will also be able to direct a Sim to be the DJ.
The Sims 2Edit
In Nightlife, a neighborhood will have three pre-made NPC DJs once Downtown is associated with the main neighborhood, and a booth placed on a community lot will use one of them. The player can direct a Sim to be the DJ, and the Sim will earn simoleons while working at the booth. Also, Sims may have a want to work as the DJ.
If the booth is on a residential lot, it will generally function as a stereo, but a Sim will be able to "Be the DJ", which will build creativity. According to the Prima guide for Nightlife, the "House Mix" option will pull MP3s from the Music folder of the player's computer.
On both community and residential lots, other Sims can ask the DJ to change the type of music playing. Unlike The Sims, the DJ booth cannot play any radio stations. There are four options to choose from: "Slow", "Medium", "Fast", and "House Mix". A Sim who is a DJ can also be directly instructed by the player to change stations.
FreeTime added another DJ Booth which can be used for dance competitions. However, the DJ Booth from Nightlife cannot be used for dance competitions, even if FreeTime is installed. The Freetime DJ Booth can be found on the Music and Dance Hobby lot, My Muse - Music & Dance Studio.

The Sims 3Edit
The DJ Booth returns in The Sims 3: Showtime. Sims will also gain DJ skills from manning the DJ booth. Sims can play four genres from a DJ booth: Dubstep, Drum 'n Bass, Funk, and Niche. Skilled DJs can also hand out Track Mixes similar to albums. There are also opportunities for skilled DJs to perform gigs at venues. If placed on a community lot, it will not spawn an NPC DJ, but a Sim can become one.
Old School DJ BoothEdit
"It's a little musty and tad a bit crusty, but it remains intact to lay down a track. Its character's true, which is apparent to you, and though others may doubt, they'll soon scream and shout. So hop on up and take it for a spin, 'cause this old baby has sweet tunes within."
AmpliFLY DJ BoothEdit
"When you're starving for some mouthwatering melodies, this booth is the place to belly up to some beats. Dish yourself up some rich rhythms with a piping hot side of bass. Once you've sampled these delectable descants, everything else your ears will taste is ash."
Freestyle DJ BoothEdit
"Take advantage of your music mixing aptitude with this new piece of tech that will surely coddle the crudest of crowds. With Mixers and Midi’s, Sound Cards and Synthesizers, you’ll surely deliver a sound that will make any listener’s head spin."
The Sims 4Edit
DJ booths have returned in The Sims 4: Get Together, and it comes with its own unique DJ skill. A Sim's ability to have a better party improves with their DJ skill.
Although Sims of all ages can interact with the DJ, the DJing Skill is only available for Sims Teen and older. Sims can show off their DJ Skills on any of the available DJ Booths, and even make tips doing so!
As your sim progresses in the DJ skill they unlock special abilities (conversation topics, music genres, etc.).

"Turn-Table-Top Tote" DJ BoothEdit
"It doesn't look like much and it may not have fancy attachments, but it has soul! It really does!"
The Wub Tub Electromagic DJ Booth Edit
"The last time you dropped the bass? Your fishing trip. The last time you went spinning? Stationary Bike. It's time to supercharge your ho-hum life with this futuristic DJ booth. Those late night calls from your neighbors? Pure jealousy."
Low-Fi Mobile DJ BoothEdit
"This DJ booth may not have all the bells and whistles that some of the fancier models have but it's just as good. Sure, it may not have DJ PlumPlum's famous Llama Lights, but it does have a flashlight on the side and an air horn on the top. Plus it's not about style, it's about the music."
Quantum Retro DJ BoothEdit
"Now this is a DJ booth. Sleek walls, Hi-Fi sound, glowy Bits, this booth has it all. This is the kind of booth that DJ Firbs would use when he was spinning at the hottest Clubs in Windenburg. Drop beats like the best with the hottest mixer money can buy. Remember, it's not just about the music, it's about the style."
