  1. Thanks as always. Over the months since I got my kit I've realised that beat, phrase and harmonic mixing is the bedrock but there is also (as you demo) the part about finding the right place to mix two tracks and that can vary depending on the two tracks. I've felt that over use of effects is an issue. I almost see a set as a version of a record album / LP in that it should feel like a coherent set of tracks that in the case of DJ'ing, mix together to form one larger piece of music. Just my thoughts since having my set up side late last year, but may of my transitions last maybe 3 minutes and I love the way that with the right tracks its virtually impossible to tell where on track ends and the other begins.

    I'm by no means an expert and clearly there are some 'rules' such as mixing vocals directly over vocals, but with the right track's I've found that there can be two sets of vocals that repeat as part of the track but in different places in the phrase which leads to the feeling that the vocals from the tracks are almost talking too each other. I've got a few bits up on my sound cloud (hope its OK to post, if not I'll remove) @ soundcloud.com/3784m .

    The biggest learning curve I've found is sitting and listening to the tracks and I agree very much about making sure I key match.

    Thanks again J – an inspiration as always mate.
