Hi all, first mix I'm happy with, first 3 songs I love them mixed together, I think it worked really well. It's mainly tunes that have been released for purchase in the last 2 months.

Please can you give me any tips/pointers and what to work on other than learning my tunes?

Thanks :)

I really dig your track selection. I think you need to work on your timing tho. The beat matching was fine, but you need to work on the proper time to bring in a new track, i.e. the new track should start at beat 1, but you started it at beat 8 or beat 4. On some other mixes, I thought that the old track abruptly ended when it could have kept going, which is another timing issue. I would just work on bringing in the new track at the proper beat, when to drop the new track, and when to fade out the old tracks. But these are all just my opinion.

Overall, I would be very proud of your first mix, I wish my first mix was this good.
