    Default Pre-Mixed Tracks?

    So I came across a dj that plays all the parties at my uni the other day on Soundcloud, and I was kind of surprised to find that in their mixes, about half of the tracks they played were premade mixes. Just two tracks that they'd mixed together and then they played that mix.
    Not judging per se, but I personally feel that that's a bit of a cop out, because they're essentially doing half of the mixing necessary. I listened to the mixes and they weren't even intricate mashups that couldn't be done live, they were just moderate length blends with effects.

    Has anyone on here seen anything like this/do this/what are your thoughts?
    Peace

    How did you learn this from Soundcloud? Not sure I understand.

    They had a track list for the mix up and it listed the "bootlegs" that they had uploaded to their profile

    I know tons of people who make bootlegs and spin them out. That's the point of a bootleg.

    I'll do this (rarely), but only for a mix of two songs that is really intricate (lots of remix deck work or effects) or involves some additional beats/instrumentation in a DAW. Basically, it's sort of a studio "remix" of two songs that I then blend in to the rest of the set.

    Yeah, but I wouldn't class them as bootlegs. I'm all for playing your own remixes or whatever, for sure, but these are just a-b mixing between tracks and then labeled as a bootleg. Just seems lazy/cheating.

    And see I would say that that is fine, if it's something that can't be done live then do it yeah, but simple mixing between tracks seems a bit iffy to me

    Yeah, that's totally lame especially since the invention of the "sync" button.

    Furthermore, since it's less work to do live, it makes it look like your doing nothing when there's a mix going on. Suss af.
