    Not seen much stuff about Blackley posted on here. Think he has some mad skills. Cue all the haters with the pre-pitched/sync comments but this guy has so much energy in his sets.

    no question the guy has a lot of skill, bringing two tunes in and double dropping them is pretty sick

    just mixes a bit too fast for me, theres no flow its just DROP DROP DROP DROP

    I watched a video of his and barely saw him touch the pitch. If he really pre pitches then I'm not impressed at all.

    It's all about playing good tunes and rolling them out. Not bad/average ones and playing them for only 16 bars. It makes the whole thing feel disposable.

    its pretty obvious he pre pitches and probably cuts tune intros to 16 bars too

    but even if he does, its still impressive

    it says in the description he cuts to 8 bars, and even makes a point on the mic when touching the pitch, although that was about 25 tunes in ha

    this x1000, id rather mix on 2 decks and play nice rolling tunes.

    Not into this furious style of mixing at all.

    Pretty impressive that he can mix that fast, but as the others have said, not into how fast this kind of mixing is.

    Oops. Sorry Steve. Pressed edit instead of quote... Should be back to your original post now.

    ----
    When you take away the need for any actual dj skill, all you're doing is pressing go.
    Fisher price have been making kit to teach this skill to toddlers for decades.

    Quality > Quantity.

    Drum and bass is a fantasticly diverse genre of music. So why play 6584 tracks in 6 minutes that all whomp fart frazzle and pew-pew?

    What's really sad is, this is the stereotype of drum and bass. It's embarrassing.

    Does what it says on the tin can, no need to get worked up.

    It's not a club set, it's not a mix meant for listening. He's just putting on a show, and post it on Youtube. Was good for a few chuckles, fair play :)

    I was sick a little in my mouth. 18 tracks in 3m35 is quite lol though, should have stopped there.

    I think he should be on MTV. Levity raves. A chat show on the squat rave scene.

    Funny but serious, dealing with stuff. All types from everything from there to here and back over there again but with a life lesson. like a dnb jeremy kyle.
