    Can you reliably count on throwing a tune in 32 bars out and them lining up to drop together?

    Tune 1 dropping after the breakdown and tune 2 after the intro?

    Yes although I found at one stage this lead me to double drop every mix which is extremely boring in a set unless you are using three decks and continually teasing other tracks in.

    Agreed, I like to use doubles sparingly and weave blends in as the meat of my mixes.

    I noticed that constant double droping became standard for majority of people. This is also reason why everybody plays from "at least" 3 decks, because if you are good enough at beatmatching, you are doubledroping al the time, cause when Deck A starts, you hotcue Deck B 32 before drop - then it´s double drop at the middle and you start Deck C 32 before drop so when A goes brekdown, you have another double drop at B and C..... -_- I personally don´t enjoy this very much when I´ m playing but sometime I have strange feeling that when you leave your tracks playing for a while, for example if you play second drop of some tune, people are looking at me like I missed something :-/

    There's a lot if tracks that can an should be played alone. I've heard a number of djs crucify the moment for me by needlessly couple dropping a fav track with some shit
