    When i used to mix garage i was on radio and playing out every week, but since iv been mixing D&B i found it pretty hard to do anything decent, i play out once a month or so but i need more!

    Can any of you guys help or have any advise on what direction to go in, ie: where to send demos? who to contact or maybe some of you could help!

    Make some fucking banging tunes. It's the only way. Or clone yourself as DJ Noize.

    k, my advice, if you decide to take it. get rid of those promo things with your picture on it. not a good look really. also get out there and stay on the grime, record 100 coppies of your mix and pass it out. get to know promoters. work on your image a bit. but mostly, stay on the grind and promote yourself. noones gonna do it for you


    and the most important thing. your not Andy C. Be original, theres 1,000 of people trying to be what your doing

    That would be Sick! I definately get involved with that.

    The only way your guna get noticed is if you pimp yourself to anyone that will listen.
    I always carry a couple of mix CD's on me just in case.
    Then just fucking hammer them out to anyone with a pair of hands.
