    also for mixing like you do,
    1.get rid of the crossfader, they suck anyways unless mapped to do something else =p
    2.google rapidevolution and use that program for key detection,
    3.EQ transition and use the line faders in place of the crossfader.
    4.Play with the basic effects to learn what the parameters do
    5.Learn to play on multiple dj equipment (guitar center is cool for that) just iin case if something happens.
    6.Dont Rush in because if you do you will most likely look like a fool when you screw up and dont know how to pull it off or fix it.
    7. Read DJTT posts and forums
    8.ALWAYS take feedback and listen to them.
    9. Ignore trolls

    I'd say 70% of the time it gets it for me. Alot of the time it needs tweaking though...

    Should just be half of what it actually is... E.g. 87.50 and double it with advanced deck functions or work it out and type it in (unrequired effort though).

    Guys IMO the time needed to get a gig is not standard. I got my first gig when 16 years old, with very very little experience. Although I've managed to do my best and I ended up with a residency and the most profitable dj of the club. At the moment I can see that I've mada a huge progress and the truth is that this progress seems to have no end.
    So my opinion is you should train every single day and give passion on what you're doing. You will never regret it.

    I got my first gig at 15, i knew how to put a cd in and press play, and how to fade between tracks, not much else. Got a residency off that once i turned 16.

    I've been to so many supposedly "good clubs" just to hear somebody crossfading between two copies of this years MOS compilation.

    Don't worry yourself mate, knowing your music is 99% of the battle, and in my opinion you have a good taste in DnB, loving the track selection for this mix.

    Just practice, play music you know well and love and you'll be amazing yourself before you know it.

    Thanks Maxted. How did you get a gig at 15?

    @Maxted I completely agree with you. The majority of clubs in greece are just having dj crossfading top 40.
    I am lucky enough to know enough promoters to get me gigs at these clubs.
