    hmmm

    if u are talking about the breakdown then no, its at a different speed, u have to wait till it drops again before u can cue another dnb tune

    u can do it from the begining of chainsaw, play the quiet intro and cue in swamp thing when the drums start and they will double drop, and it does come out quite well

    i dont have this record but i listened to a clip of it and other than the middle of the track were the whole track changes pitch there shouldnt be any problem with mixing or double dropping it ?!?! you can double any two tunes some will sound better than others but its almost always possible mate.

    swamp thing is as good as any, there's not alot to it either, chainsaw is a fairly basic intro/drop
    not being degrading but can u double drop swamp thing with other tunes?
    how long u been mixing & wots ur set up?

    you won't be able to double drop chainsaw (on the 2nd drop) with any tune because of the time change in the breakdown.

    time warp is a little tricky to mix in, because of the that swing-esq beat, it makes it sound a little sloppy sometimes. but i don't really see the major problem....

    if ur on cdjs u mite be able to pull off the second breakdown by cueing swamp thing so its only got half a phrase left on the intro and start cueing it in as chainsaw speeds up, try leaving it a beat late from half way through the build up or summat and it should drop together, mite take a while to get the knack

    :gslayer::idhitit:OK. litlle bro, heres is just a shot in the dark. Check it, i would just listen to the tracks seperatly. I mean keep listen to them until you know that bitch front and back. I mean you know when the breaks is about to happen and everything. COUNT COUNT COUNT COUNT your numbers and then try it. I know you can get it kid. Nothings is impossible. Like it was hard for a while to do Daccy C's STAR because it was a low tick and a chick singing. But after alot of listening it was clockwork.
    Holla atcha boi...... Respect.....
