    Default First Post - Electro House/Dubstep Mix

    Hello all,

    I'm new here, although I've been lurking for a few days now. I haven't been mixing that long, but I really like it. I'm hoping to improve and learn a lot here.

    I made a mix yesterday consisting mostly of electro house and dubstep tracks. I didn't use any effects, as I wanted to work on my beatmatching and phrase matching the most. I'm posting it hoping for feedback.



    Tracklist
    The M Machine Promise Me a Rose Garden
    R3hab & Swanky Tunes Sending My Love f. Max C
    Lazy Rich f. Belle Humble The Chase (Original Mix)

    I listened to your mix in the car and on my headphones yesterday while running errands. I streamed it via iphone / subsonic. Here's my feedback.

    - Thanks for providing a tracklist, proper embed on DJTT and a download link! Made it easy to listen and give feedback!

    - I don't care for this style of music at all as a matter of personal taste. I don't understand the juxtaposition of syrupy sweet female vocals and FACE MELTING LAZER BASS. But I didn't.. hate.. most of your tracks. What was pretty disturbing was the fact that every track had a vocal. When you do this kind of tracklist, with no instrumental tracks to let the vocals breathe, you end up sounding a bit like pop dance radio. Pop dance radio is mixed with robotic perfection which you, as a beginning DJ who is actually mixing live, are unlikely to be able to achieve.

    - The phasing of your mix was good, although there was not a huge amount of overlap in transitions. You seemed to often mix from the breakdown of one track into the intro of another track. The phrasing wasn't often spot on, and this combined with the amount of build and each track having a vocal made it an uncomfortable listen.

    - Your levels were also pretty rough. This kind of music is uber-compressed and has a lot of sub bass, so it's difficult to match volumes, but I noticed more than a few mixes where the levels suddenly changed noticably.

    Thanks for posting, and keep at it!
