    i dont dj. i tried, and its really difficult. people ask me why i dont dj and i tell them its for the same reason i dont play the violin, i dont have time to pick up a new instrument. cos i feel djing is an instrument like any other. in production forum were discussing song structure a little bit and its been put forward that its not possible to mix tunes with unusual structures. surely thats not right, if youre a good enough dj you can mix anything with anything? or what

    yeah i guess so, ive just started dj'ing 2 months ago, and i think i picked alot of things up in those 2 months as i have a few mates who have been djing for quite some time, i just find it hard to find time where i can concentrate and fully focus on practising my mixing and double drops etc without thinking that i have to do coursework and shit, so i was just wandering if anyone had the same problem and how long they practise for

    Easily 12+ .. I like to do the sickest sets, never go to a show and play on a whimb... Unless I know its a small crowd then just got with the flow.

    You get out what you put in!

    Innit. Time on the decks is time away from the stress and worries of everyday life.

    A cheeky half hour mix on lunch breaks does me the world of good!

    Ain't it the truth. Sometimes I sneak an hour in the afternoons. And on the weekends I can get in a good two hours depending on what the wife and kid are doing.
