    Why dont DnB Mixtape makers do covers for the cds/downloads ?

    just something i notice alot about the dnb scene , people dont take the time out to do a cover , add a picture in with has contact details on it etc ,.. within the hip hop community its near enough standard issue to have taken that little extra time to finish off the package , makes it more pro if u ask me , but hay what do i know ?
    im just a net junkie !!! ...

    heres a few exsamples

    I bet cannabis and lethargy are the two biggest culprits

    I'm a lazy fucking cunt. Just bothering to do a mix is a stretch and you should consider yourself lucky to see one upped. ;)

    Sounds like a good idea though. I'll see if Tuna wants to work some MS Paint magics for my next one what.

    its easier for the promoters / company to stick the rave flyer onthe cd rather than having to spend time re-designing a flashy front cover

    wasnt aimed at promoters / company / industry types was more about djs who post online ... having a picture with your details on it *could* help your promotion ... untold amounts of bloggers nowerdays posting links and if there was a picture with the tracklist etc they'd post that aswell ... it just makes "me" the viewer / link user / downloader / hotlinker (blogger) more informed plus makes your stuff stand out from just a txt *my new mix* - a tracklist then link ... i dunno praps im just being fussy and alittle ummm over this subject all i know via mixtapes that unknown djs do via hip hop they take an extra moment just to make their shit look better and considering 90% is look at image ego who the badman ,... etc id thought more of you guys may of jumped on this .... anyway ... as i saids rant over ... if u as a dj that sees the positive in what ive tried in a bad way to exspain then props if not .. do stress , i wont be lossin any sleep over it and nor should you ....

    I used to , but I have been slack lately, and not even done a mix, must be well over a year since I posted up a d/l to this here forum. I guess my other activities have kept me well busy
