    Is it me or is it easier to mix with a mc?

    You can count on him to chat away while the breakdown plays or in between outros and intros... The beatmatch doesn't become so important. And he can drown out a clash...

    drown out a clash? lol well, i guess

    I'm not anti-mc, even if I cant stand MCing I do appriciate it, although I'd slap any mofo that tried to MC over any of my sets! :p that aside, I actually do find it allot harder to mix with an MC, espcially if they havent got the best rythm, DnB/any electronic dance musik is highly quantised, and although the breaks in DnB allow for some error in beat match, still...

    I really like choons that have MC's recorded into them, probly coz of the amount of time that has been spent 'stiching it' all together

    I personally dont think a good DnB set needs any livening up, I'm a muzikal purist, this applies to all my tastes, I just dont like vocals, nothing in particular against MC's, although I do find them a bit more offencive than say a singer

    my 2pence :D

    MCs and Dj's need to work together. Like when a good MC knows when to shut up so the DJ can perfect the mix.

    first time I was mixing and a decent MC came on it was a nice little rush. I'd been building through a couple of tunes, and this dude picked just the right spot to drop in and chat. He wasnt brilliant but he was quick and I did enjoy the rest of that set a lot. Crowd responds to an MC more when they havent been deluged with em all night I feel.

    The standard of MC's is rising all the time, its all about the new era of up and coming mc's that are working with the dj and having a positive and professional approach to the music.

    in my opinion mc is essential on dnbpartys but he or she must have skills, not just "singin" somtin like: dididibibibdibdidbid bassss bididbidbdiibd drum. good mc has his/her well know texts but also is able to sing somethin on "free". unfortunately lot of mcs doesn't realize that they spoil briliant sets. i am talkin about my country now(Poland) peace
