    I disagree, I think FX is the next step, then maybe scratching depending on the style of music and what controller he has - there are lots of DJs who think they can scratch and do the most horrible basic patterns over electronic music, only those with actual scratch talent can pull it off.

    FX he can add to his set, live remixing then look into other aspects...no need to run, we are in a marathon of sound, not a sprint.

    I personally find it a lot tougher to mix Top40/Pop compared to Electro/Techno/House genre's. Currently I save my ass by using the echo freeze alot, but I figure I won't always be able to use my own gear so I need to figure out how to mix all-round without effects. Could someone point me into a general direction, as I can't even seem to find Ellaskins tutorials going further in-depth than the standard cutting...

    FX > scratching if you're mixing anything like house etc. Scratching is very genre dependent too IMO.

    Laidback is a great DJ, but sometimes the stuff he's mixing just sounds like garbled noise.

    First check your timing. Use some drum samples and practice until you make a constant beat.

    Then play a track and try to keep beat going. When you master the tempo you'd be able to juggle samples and hotcues.

    I was there but I picked the FX route first

    fine i get it some people aren't fond of scratching... here some advance stuff... hot cue juggle, Key Play, Word Play. I guess i didn't take into consideration peoples style, genre, and crowd. I always assume everyone wants to be a party rockin open format dj that loves to make people dance guess not
