    nah this is pretty good for a first effort man! a couple of things though..

    be careful to not overuse your effects (especially the filter/gater combo) - it can really kill the mix if you use it too much, and in the middle of phrases (like the tools who always overuse flanger) - keep it for building energy before a massive drop, or effecting the very end of an 8 bar section or something

    also, i'd say use EQs a bit more heavily when bringing in your tracks - then you can bring them in more gradually and keep the energy up

    otherwise props man, keep at it!

    The crowd would be entertained by the mix, by the song and by what you do with the music. I don't go to clubs to see dj's jumping or waving at me.

    play good music man! if you're having to entertain your audience by doing anything else, you're kinda missing the point a bit..

    i agree though, a mixtape is a little different from playing live in that sense - so you could work on cue point bits if you want i guess? depends what you want to achieve really
