    yo, not a majour fan of the tracklist but seein as u want some help i gave it a whirl,
    your beatmatching througout most of the mixes was good, one thing i realised quite early on is that your getting alot of vocal clashes from the tunes. try to avoid this if u can (y)
    but other than that man good work.
    keep it up

    Thankyou man, it's nice to get a little criticism, dont have many dj friends in real life see. I've been told about the vocal thing by someone else, will make sure I fix that in future mixes. Btw where abouts in Bournemouth are you from? I lived there up until about 9 months ago! :)
