    wait until your beat matching is 100%, because im sure its not totally perfect yet, then start using the eq to smooth out your mixing

    Alright I'll focus more and in time and not what levels are sitting at! Thanks for that!

    It's not even %75 but im pleased with my progress! I'm used to just sitting down at my drums and just playing whatever i need to yknow, wheras DJing is about using something already done and using it in your own context!

    18 was the age DJ Perplex started scratching!

    Saving at the moment for a cdj player, maybe 800, probably 1000 just to make it easier to get gigs, unfortunately. Imo cdj's are the biggest, useless pieces of junk around. Though getting used to one is going to help when 900s/2000s are standard and I can just take a usb/hd to gigs. Never been keen on burning 1000 cds
    Still not as good as traktor but a lot of places wont let you bring your own gear..

    To old at 20? Give me a break!! I was 11 when I started cutting tapes together on a double cassette deck and giving them to friends. It wasn't until I was 19 that I played in a club, but that wasn't really a conscious decision. I was working in a record store at the time and knew music which was why I was asked to DJ at the club.

    It sounds like you're off to a good start. I just started lest year, so I guess I was 23. I also wish I'd started earlier, but I didn't so I just gotta take it from here instead.

    It might actually be refreshing for others to read a bio that doesn't start with "At the age of 14..."

    Also, look at it this way: When you're little your stupid as hell, so now when you're older you can do stuff right from the beginning.

    26,27? Something like that. I've always been putting mix-tapes together. Never too late!

    The way I look at it, my music taste was way too immature before!

    If you still love DJing go for it! its never late to do something you love to do, I started when I was 8 and left it when I was 20, but I'm going back again and I am 25 now so its never late just enjoy it and have fun.
