Totally agreed. It makes beat matching super easy too. I remember beatless intros used to be so damn hard to mix. Now I can look at a tune, tell it's a 64 bar intro, drop it and match it from there very easily.
I feel like there's a lot more I could be doing with my mixes. I need to spend more time exploring different ways to mix. I've been listening to a lot more techno to come up with ideas. There are some really interesting dj's in other genre's.
