Stealing Mixes (unintentionally)

I keep thinking i've discovered really good mixes and then realising they've already been done and we're just stored in my memory from mixes i've heard in the past.

For example just now I was playing Bear Music, and Music Club popped into my head so I mixed it in and it sounded perfect. Then about 10 minutes later I realised i'd just remembered it from London Elektricitys essential mix.

Same thing happened with Chase & Status - Judgement and System - Near Miss(see if you remember who's done this mix), i've used this in parts of my sets for weeks thinking it was my own creaton and just found out who did it first.

Anyone else have this problem?

tunes are there to be mixed mate fuck it
Yeah I know.. I still enjoy doing the mixes, it's just a bit annoying when I think i'm a genius and then realise I heard someone else do it.

Does work the other way round sometimes though... ever hear a big DJ do a mix you've done first?

Its happened to me often playing old skool

I tend to make my sets up as i go along, reacting to the crowd and how the set is making me feel

So i'll get a urge to mix a certain track next. But then after i might realise ive copied a mix from a compilation or live set which ive played alot.

Sometimes a mix enters your subconscious without you really knowing it (say there is a mix CD playing in the background but you aren't paying attention to it). Then somewhere down the line you suddenly have an idea for a great mix! Then somewhere down the line again you hear a big name DJ do it and you think he/she has just done your mix, when it was actually their mix you remembered subconsciously.

This has happened to me a couple times.

On a serious note, fuck it who cares? Unless its like some signature mix mayhem...

I don't think it really matters, as long as it's not someones signature mix that you're claiming as your own.

If it sounds good then let it roll. I don't think the big names are gonna get hissy for it, and the crowd will most liekly enjoy the fact you can pull off a mix that a big name may have done before.
