    Ok, now this is a mix I feel had to be done. Going out to all drum & bass listeners, whatever style you like. This is a mix which I feel shows the basic skill of a DJ who is basically a fan of the music. I mixed an older tune into a newer one cos I liked it. I love drum and bass. If it's a tune I like i'm in it. In the beginning and to the end it's all about the beats. Whether your in your bedroom mixing or in a club nothing makes you buzz more than hearing 'that' tune or doing 'that' mix. The DJ's job is to play what the people wants. Or to take them somewhere they have never been before. With 95% of DJs up their own arses this has been lost in translation so, here's a challenge. Do something original. Don't follow, lead. Go back to what made you love it in the first place and do it that way. It ain't a job its fun. When I play in a club or my studio i'm bouncing around cos I enjoy what I do. Bring it back. The fun element. The originality. Go on. I dare you.
