    No hate at all bro, I've just seen some pretty naive posts on here as of late and wasn't sure you were getting the joke. Sorry if I didn't pick up on your sarcasm.

    I mix hip-hop, so I would just slam it or scratch it in. What makes this particular style work to a large degree, is the crowd not knowing what's coming next as there's no long blend and no/minimal teasing of the next tune. When they realise what you're doing, that's what they enjoy about it.

    I like when thought and planning is apparent--especially when everything is in key. I dislike when it's just crossfading from song to song and the whole rhythm is thrown off. If I'm listening to a mix like that, I'll stop within 10 seconds. If it's at a bar, I leave. I almost never hear it at a club.

    Agreed. It has to be done with some finesse.

    Also depends on the type of music your playing.
    But to much of it will get annoying.

    The reason I ask is because I'm playing a party Friday night with a few other djs, who typically play top40 and just slam from one track to another after thirty seconds. I could tolerate it for a few minutes, but one of them will do this for an entire hour.... Meanwhile I'm opening the party with an hour of funky nu-disco with smooth transitions. LOL

    I think it can be done very tastefully, especially when you blur the lines of the tracks, like 'oh is this actually a new song?'
