    Step 1: look at where you are playing and the crowd "type" (example: club=dance music)

    Step 2: find songs that fit step 1 genre and look at the bpm's and simply listen to the songs and see if they blend well.

    Step 3: mix the songs before hand and see how they go.

    Hope this helps

    step one go to billboard.com step two click top 40, step 3 plug output of speakers to DJ mixer. step its that simple

    haha on a serious note its all in my email, i get emails from beatport, junodownload trackitdown labels etc everyday. i fill up my cart and at the end of the week i watch my bank account lighten. I play the music over and over agian and use my ears, so when its time for a gig i know i can mix song a with song D, E or G and then finish with song B that is of course assuming the crowd agrees

    No but serious, try harmonic mixing, this way your song keys wont clash, and it wont sound bad. But you should not follow harmonic mixing all the time, because there might be a song that wont exactly be harmonically mixable, but would def put the crowd to rage. To be honest, this is something you really learn from experience.
