I just started digitally mixing Drum & Bass using a Kontrol S2 and Traktor. So far I'm in easy mode using sync and just focusing on getting to know the structure of my tracks and how to phrase match and getting the interesting bits into the mix. This is going fine so far and while continuing to practice this I would like to add something extra, but I'm lost as where to go from here. I usually end up with mixing song B's intro through song A's last phrase, then at the breakdown song B's intro changes to something more noticeable as to take over, fade out A, or maybe let some vocals or loop continue into B while EQing it out. Accidentally found a double drop and that was cool, but it's hard to keep up the energy from there. Even though I love it so far, it seems like DnB has far too much sound to be creatively looping and jumping through a song while throwing some effects in the mix like digital house/electro DJs do. And there isn't much info on DnB techniques out there either. Are there any particular filters that could be really useful? What ways are there to tease with an upcoming song? How can you add drama to a build up? (like a rising tone or something) Or when 'double building' with the previous song quickening drums, how to smoothly fade that out at the drop? How do you approach the bangers, after a long breakdown? Post-pone the drop? Can anyone just give me a few pointers on what to work on? I've got my first mix on soundcloud, rewinded every transition again and again until I got it right but there's no way I would remember all that fine-tuning when mixing on-the-go. I'd like to share some mixes with friends, play when we chill at my place. But mostly have a lot of fun interacting with the music I love.
