    Thread title is pretty self-explanatory

    Sorry if there was already a thread like this, couldn't find anything

    So, which DJ do you think is the best at double dropping 2 tracks?

    I'll have to vote for Friction, he was made for this

    Tunes are built in 'bar' or 'phrases'.


    When a tune breaks into the main section of the track, it's called the 'drop'. Ususally when the bass kicks in.


    A double drop is simply using turntables to play two tunes together, and get them in sync so that they 'drop' together.

    :)

    I heard that mampi is going deaf, the foldback monitor was blown once after his set because he had to have it loud as fuck. If this is true it's obviously a shame and he won't be getting as many bookings, and could explain why they havn't been together as much

    Its Andy, and anyone who says otherwise is just trying to be different.

    His DDs are as tight as you can get, no matter how little time he leaves himself to cue it, and he also usually mixes in key and spends hours at home finding mixes so his doubles are always pretty special. Even when djs call for rewinds randomly he always has a double drop up his sleve. Whereas Mampis are tight, but the tracks dont compliment eachother as well as Andy;s in my experience.
