I thought i'd introduce myself first. My names Ollie, i'm from Southampton and i've been learning to mix since February this year. At the moment i'm going by the name DJ Pentium, reason being when i'm concentrating on something, people struggle to get a response from me, so my housemates nicknamed me Pentium 1.

I started mixing without much knowledge on the genre, and was surprised how helpful other people in the scene are, especially the guys at Tripp2 records in Southampton (late licence records/paradox), who have helped me build a record collection from scratch, and are always willing to play me all the fresh tracks.

This is my first recorded mix. Technically it's a bit rough round the edges but i'm very pleased with how it flows, and obviously I love every single tune on there.

Please give it a listen if you got the spare time and leave me some feedback. I hope you enjoy the mix, and i'm sure i'll be posting a lot more on these forums in the future.

some good mixes in there and the beatmatching is good considering u've, only been at it a few months

personally i'd let a few of the mixes run for longer, and try and get to know ur tunes a little bit better, i dont know if u were trying to skip most the second breakdowns but silence is greatly underrated, cools everything down for a bit

just my two cents, overall a good mix mate, keep up the good work
