    Default where to start?

    Ive got traktor and I was just wondering how do you make things flow easily? When I go to the club the DJ's songs always seem to flow together great do you set this up before hand and have a certain order you play the songs in?

    well you needa know how to beatmatch...know your music...and the rest is inside you...your funk, your style, your creativity, your soul, be unique and if you know your music you know what songs sound good together causing a great mix

    hopefully that will help

    understanding song structure is very important. Most songs are based on either 8, 16, or 32 measure (also know as bar) phrases. Songs will generally build up over these phrases, and most outros will start taking away elements in the same order each phrase. Thats where you add your stuff in a basic mixing environment. Just listen to your music, learn it well, and with a good ear and dedication you can make things work.
