    Hi all, could do with a bit of advice, i've been djing for a fair few years now but have only recently started to mix DnB. Thing is back cueing, dont get me wrong i know how its done, been doing it for years, but i cant seem to get the hang of it with DnB. I know you count the snare but when played backwards i find it hard to make out. Some help would be well appriciated. Cheers.

    Most of the time I just listen to both of the entire drum patterns.. not only the snares or kicks and when at some tracks the high hats are a bit irritating I just turn down the treble and gain it slowly while bringin' it in, like every bar a bit higher if you know what I mean.. I hope that was usefull

    well most times i use the kick as a reference but other times you have to use the entire drum pattern like Kibbon eloquently put it, just practice bruv you'll get it . you already know the gig so just let dnb grow on you and it will come
