    Same here man. Mixer I ordered yesterday was supposed to go out and it didn't. It has completley fucked my day! I wish I had some buds, then everything would be ok.

    Best thing to do when your having a bad mix day. is take a day or two out, and starve yourself of the music you DJ with (time to get the old Linkin park records and various shit out).

    During that time youll start to get a bit of focus on djing and when you give it another go you get keen. It works :)

    Happens to me a lot. Mainly because i'm a n00b.
    One day i'm firing, locking most things i stick on the plate.
    Next day, i'm clanging everything.
    Practice is key.

    Ive been mixin' for 13 fuckin' years and i still have these days.

    With me its lack of sleep, or if your in a shit mood prior to going on ya decks, then nothing seems to go right.

    SHIT HAPPENS !!!
