    Now then everyone.

    I've just stumbled onto this forum and it seems like my sort of gaff so I thought i'd sign up.

    I've been listening to DnB for about 3 or 4 years and only decided mid 2009 that I was going to try my hand at mixing. I've got a little experience with the basics, such as beat matching etc as i've covered for one of my mates at house parties and done a bit of bedroom djing round his place. I'm currently waiting till the beginning of November to purchase a set up, all I need is deck's and a mixer as i've already got a decent amp, headphone's and speakers. I've been looking at the Stanton T62's (I've had a dabble on a set and i've heard nothing but good thing's for a beginner) with a basic mixer for around £270 for my first setup unless I go down the 2nd hand ebay route and try get hold of a set of technics, My budget will be around £300 - £500.

    I'm from the North East of England living in a town called Darlington which is about a 45 minute drive from Newcastle.

    We haven't really had any DnB nights where I from unless it's arranged by ourselves, however one of the local club's have just started a dnb/dubstep night on a thrusday (probably won't last long). The next best place is Newcastle, some good dnb nights there.

    Anyways, it seems i've rambled.. didn't really know what to say so I wrote a mini bio :rinsed:

    Hi mate and welcome, what format are you currently mixing with LP or CD i know some one earlier said 1210's the old original classics but to be honest i would look at investing in some DENON DNS 700 - CD TURNTABLE might be a bit pricy but worth every penny, plus with the availability to download music you may find it easier as well, hope this helps

    I've dabbled with both but i've got a hell of a lot more experience with LP turntables.

    I'll look in to CD turntables though.

    Cheers people.. thank's for making me feel welcome. A lot of internet forum's are full of people who have some kind of complex with n00bs... it's sad really.
