    people are different, but when this happens take a nice big breath, switch the dnb off before you get sick of it, and go outside (or to the boozer)
    yeah it happens, used to make me feel like crap and a failure, thats because you invest so much effort into it. now i just shrug and turn it up, or turn it off. if it happens when you are playing out, different story. sweating bullets there man.:rambo:


    edit - the above advice isnt easy, and there can be rewards from being bloody-minded. but not for anyone listening :teeth:

    yeah i get off days but am finding that they happen less and less as i get more practice. On the off days, i reckon it's best to just turn it off and watch a bit of tv/go t' pub, anything apart from mix! I just go back to it later and feel much more relaxed.

    Same here and I don't intend to... can't say I'm waiting for anything apart from the new Freestylers album. Maybe will check out Congo Natty. Anybody notice that Rebel MC/CN is getting less & less coherent as time goes by?
