Hi All,

I am new to this group and i am new to Dj'ing, I dabbled years ago with some old sounlabs and left it for 10 yeras and came back and got some decent equiptment.

Anyway....To the Point!

One of my Favourite DnB Tunes Is called R-Type by Jo.

Now anyone who is round about my age and maybe younger i dunno will probably know this tune, as it was spun by all the dj's "back in the day".

I purchased this record and couldnt wait to get it spinning.

Ever since i played this record, it has become the bain of my life!

This may very well be the most awkward DnB tune ever? I cant find a decent mix using this tune anywhere, i cant seem to match the beats, they are everywhere!

Tell me peeps, is this tune a bitch to mix, or am i just a shyte Dj in need of much more practice?

Go easy on me!

Thanks Guys.

hmm never really mixed much jungle but that song doesn't really seem to have much of a particularly odd structure or anything, just try and follow the rhythm of kick drum maybe or try slow it and practice, then practice some more.

on the same subject I tried mixing a load of Aphex Twin songs earlier,made me feel ill in the end:D

It's got a pretty standard pattern compared to some jungle tunes tbh. Just keep trying with different tunes, practice beat-matching more etc. as others have said.

Burial's tunes on the other hand...

Not really a hard tune to mix. If you havent mixed jungle for a while you will struggle. R type's a pretty easy tune once you get the hang of it. Also isnt that slow so you can mix with new stuff.

id say hardest tune to mix from personal experience was Masochist Pendulum. I remember Hype beat jugling them a few years back. i was like WTF?!!?

Beat juggling is the same with any tune once you can actually do it

I have been known to do a little juggle with metropolis from time to time. I'm not very consistant but when it works it has been known to 'set off the dance' (y)

Juggling D&B out in clubs is rubbish and pointless. Unless its DMC, juggling in the club shouldnt happen (unless you're using 2 copies of a hip hop record produced by DJ premier, then it may be ok)
