    It wasn't a style that I enjoy, but the mixing was done cleanly.
    Obviously making the crowd happy is priority #1, but ethically and on principle I just don't agree with it.

    do you mean an acapella over an instrumental from a different tune?

    No, I mean the way that you would take the end of song a and the start of song b and blending them.

    This does sound lazy to me - but it depends how much they are actually DOING to the 2 different tracks. If it's just intro over outro, then yes, that is just lazy - but if they are doing much more (see some of my own tracks on Soundcloud) then that is probably considered to be a bootleg/mash-up.

    See my own "England Story":

    https://soundcloud.com/dj-patch-3/yt...ollers-england

    Starts off as the original by YT, then after a bit of cool vocal looping, it launches into a hell-fire D n' B mash-up of the original.

    I'm really proud of it...

    A bootleg is an uncleared remix/mashup. This is just being lazy.

    I'm trying to envision what you're saying. So the Dj plays tracks that are actually two tracks that have been blended together already instead of just blending it himself live. Lazy? I dunno, the DJ spent the time to pre mix it. Just takes away from the Live feel and creativity that comes with DJing.
    But if you're talking about someone who uses Bootlegs and mashups from Soundcloud. I don't see a problem. i download remixes and from Soundcloud from aspiring Producers and Djs. Sometimes their remixes are better than the original song(rare). Back in the day and maybe even now you can find Bootleg Vinyl with singles that have 8/16bar intros which help when some songs that drop on the first bar.
    Lazy, I guess so. Boring, INDEED!

    So they get to skip out on every other blend? I don't think I quite follow.
