So recently Ive been given the chance to start playing out, however I have some concerns with my ability to maintain the intensity of a mix (that is, keep it from dropping out, into the mellow parts of songs).
I find I can mix well, I've been told Im ready to play out(skillwise), but I still feel that my style of mixing consists of too many mellow parts (think Sabre for example, lots of atmospheric parts contrasted by longer instances of smooth blending).
I feel that this style of mixing wont be well accepted, however where things become confusing is with regards to whether or not I'm simply trying to apply the more jumpup style of mixing (quick cuts, shortblends) to more darker/minimal drum and bass (such as Alix Perez, Data, Sabre, etc. this being the stuff I spin.)
So, any help with either tips to improve my ability to blend quicker (without it sounding too sudden) or maybe some advice on how the more minimal type of tunes are meant to be mixed would be greatly appreciated.
Dont think im not a fan of the more mellow parts of tunes, If anything Id wish more people would let tunes drop out.
I hope this isnt too confusing, This is kinda stressing me out
