    Dj Hectiks

    not a good idea to play 10 tunes from the same style its very samey, very tight mixing but nothing spectacular.. a little disapointed

    SMARTY

    nice selection of tunes, introing taken will do u know harm lol, some nice double's but there are some pretty big gaps that you could have dealt with it started very well, on the whole pretty tight mixing but not perfect there is quite a few slips.. fucking love the untitled dub!!

    noob to Southampton!
    Ill Agree about the gaps djflicky but at the same time it sounds like he is tryin to proove the fact that he can do both ie: teasing the tunes and being able to hold a set, i personally hate it when theres a tune i love just dropped then the dj mixes out stupidly quick, besides listening to it after reading ur msg the biggist gaps between the tunes are a maximum of 32bars which is perfectly normal, Anyway yeah there are a few slips in it but nothing that made me cringe and it prooves ur only human lol

    Big up DJ Smarty no competition in this one!

    4 out of 5

    I think you have to pm ur scores and give them a mark out of 5 for the 3 catogries?

    maybe you are right bro, but my idea of a comp is going balls out for the whole 10 tunes

    Big up both guys! but Smarty gets my vote

    why sendspace?! :/

    and i guess your not to vote, as fes and co are the votes. but seems quite obvious who won, as hectics got no doubles and smartys tune selections is also quite superior

    why is it always about the doubles ??

    tune selection should be the decider any prick with two hands can learn to double drop but being a good selecta is a whole different story.

    Congrats to both smarty and hektikz. personally it goes to smarty because of the tune selection but both mixes are solid.

    Roll on next battle..

    yeah, i was confused about the selection too, hard to keep things fair if the whole things in sandbox mode...
    I think alittle more thought needs to go into the rules, maybe have both DJs get in contact with each other & pick 5 tunes each but so they both own all 10, then it's easier to compare what they have created with them, then any teasers are up to personnel selection
    also trying to get the DJs paired off against each other a bit better, jump up vs jump up, tech vs tech, 2 decks vs 2, 3 vs 3 etc.

    both mixes were tight enough, no major qualms but smarty's was better, on the whole a better mix, plus hektic's, thats the same mix that you posted last week baring one or 2 tunes, not fresh enough...

    good stuff lads :thumbsup:

    in future could it also be possible if both mixes are anonymous & add a poll at the top of the thread, Mix A or Mix B
