    Well the beatmatching is definitely fine on this mix. It was a good jump-uppy, dancefloor tracklist too. Vibes on the mix didn't really drop out at any point. Just a few other notes here:

    I thought the drop into Ransom was a little too sharp. I know the first four bars of Ransom deserve to be aired out over the drop of I Need You, but I think the drop into it just seemed to lose a lot of momentum. Maybe boost the volume for just that bit to keep the flow consistent? Bringing I Need You back, though, afterwards, was a good touch.

    A few of the mixes didn't really sound on key to me, but admittedly I am not the best ear for keys. There was a slight clang (I think) between Do You Wanna and Timewarp, but you recovered pretty nicely, so props on that.

    Turkish Delight -> Apollo just didn't work. Keys didn't work, beats didn't work, I just wanted to get past this part, to be fair. I'm sure it sounds good to some people but I just didn't like the way it sounded.

    Outro was pretty decent, as well, as Refugee is a big tune.

    Keep up the work, man!
