    i think another tune should be dropped 32 bars in rather than both tunes dropped at the first drop

    ??

    If your dropping Ra into anything you can do it on the first drop or second of the other tune, wherever mate it's got a build up of at least half of of most tunes when you start it where you should ( a few bars in). (similar to say TC - Game over or something).

    I use it in most my mixes from a few bars in and let it double with something else thats allready rolling, take the other tune out for the inital RA! then bring it back for the by the power of RA! -- guaranteed to give loadsa impact, mampi style

    theres a tune to go with everything
    jus coz certain tunes have wot u call presence doesnt mean they should only be played on there own, they can bring more "presence" to another, weaker tune
    and using intros then cutting in a new tune at the drop can make it go off big time, for example rockstar >>> signal
    "coz i'm a... BOOOOOM!"

    its all part of djing, jus coz u dont like a dj who does it constantly doesnt mean it shouldnt be dun

    sorry but if u wanna listen to the tune listen to the tune, a dj is there to entertain and not act as a human jukebox, personally i dont rate a dj who doesnt let the mixes run (except hazard), double dropped or not

    if the mix works it works, dont want to get caught up bitchin but this is a waste thread imo

    mixing isnt always about double drops some djs are more creative...they bring a track in at certain time which works....eg john b

    y dont you rate a dj who dont double drop ( except hazard )
    it dont mean they cant mix properly ???
    hype,marky,goldie,groove dont always double drop do you not rate them

    producers dont make a really good tune put alot of effort it in for sum1 to go and drop another tune over the top of it ,theres only a few djs that can really pull it off
