    that is why you shouldn't steal music off the internet, besides the fact that you are robbing the artists (not talking about metallica, talking about electronic producers) you don't know your own music. and to play a coherant set you start with the tracks that you like and find a way to fit them all together, what you have is 14gb of tracks other people like, I recommend employing the delete button and cutting the fat from the collection, and forget about mixing tunes until you know what you like... because at the end of the day that is what club dj's do, they only play what they like

    Find around 10-20 songs that you like then take the time to LISTEN to the tracks. Pay attention to the elements of music within the individual tracks. Listen to the bass, the highs, the rhythm and the melody. By doing this repeatedly you will discover which song flows into the next, creating a groove which you can then follow and create a decent mix/playlist. Find songs that flow well with each other, complement one another, or even contrast the other.

    Try and find "themes" within tracks and develop those themes or theme throughout the entire mix.

    If you aren't a good selector, find a different hobby.

    Honestly.

    Like a trawler-mans lunch box.

    First off, i didnt read that he had stolen his music so Im not sure he should be accused of file sharing. 14gb i not a great deal of music.

    Maybe he did steal it but, i dont think theres evidence of it.

    Also, why has the OP "deleted his selection", i dont understand.

    And lastly, to the OP, dude your question is basically "Can someone tell me how to DJ"... Have you ever listened/seen a DJ before? Im not being flippant, im kinda amazed at the simplicity of the question.

    Anyone else confused or is this just the result of my MASSIVE hangover..?
