    20 Minute Live Mix Comp @ 176, Bournemouth

    Hello Turntablists!

    I've got a DJ competition on Friday in Bournemouth and i've got a 20 minute slot along with 10 others. All genres so its anyones game!

    This is the mix i've come up with for the night so I was wondering if you guys could let me know what you think. I've tried to accomodate for a wide variety, even people for who DnB isn't their personal preference... (Sorta)

    1) Unknown Error - Shadows
    >> TC - Fuck What You Heard
    >> Shimon - Quest
    2) Noisia - Stigma
    3) Ed Rush & Opticial - Pacman (Upbeats RMX)
    4) Break - Is This What You Want
    5) Adam F - Original Jungle Sound (TC RMX)
    6) DC Breaks - Do You Believe (Urban Assult RMX)
    7) Phesta - The Sun
    8) Chase & Status - Streetlife

    *** Link *** http://www.dnbshare.com/download/CompetitionMix.mp3.html *** Link ***

    *** Bitrate: 320kbps ***
    *** Playtime: 20mins ***
    *** Filesize: 45.45MB ***

    I'm really undecided about the end though, not sure to end on a soft note as the beginning is hectic as... Or mash it up again. So if you have any ideas for the last 2 tracks, post up! I'm ALL ears! These are the 2 that can be easily changed!

    Heres my other end I come up with..

    *** Alternate Outro *** http://www.dnbshare.com/download/Noisia-Hazard-Outro.mp3.html*** Alternate Outro ***

    Cheers :)

    Cheers dude, I do actually have a banging ending but it doesnt really follow on well from the Do You Believe. I'll up it in a bit, DNBshare is being ridiculously slow, 2kbps ffs!

    Listening as i type Russla, the intro had me hooked on it straight away and left me wanting more. The track selection is great, i like the way you have something in there which can appeal to most....

    The way i judge tracks in the mix is by picturing myself having no knowledge of DNB what so ever, if this were true i would have never of guessed it were 2 songs mixed and i really think thats the way it should be done.

    When you do a new mix, please let me know!

    Changed my name to 'Unit' just waiting for a Admin to get that done for me.

    Take it easy bud

    Well it was all genres so the top 3 were all Electro and House, no chance of winning over such a widely commerical genre :(

    They didnt place any others.. Was a bit pissed cos the organisers we're barely even interested in the DNB, so fucked off straight after the results. It was good fun tho, big system at the venue :)

    Cheers dude :)

    Yeah man the judges/organisers werent to be seen during pretty much all the DNB heads sets, shameful!

    One good thing was that some guys from Bournemouth UNI were filming/photographing and i spoke to them after and they said they pretty much filmed my whole set as they liked it so much :) Its guna be up on YouTube in a few weeks so i'll post it up here when its done!

    A nice bit of exposure in a properly produced video should be wicked!
