    But let's not make this into an A>B argument.

    lol, plany. The problem with typing like that is that your posts are filled with inadvertent misspellings and wrong word choices to begin with so being creative with spellings is just silly when you haven't mastered normal writing to begin with. You're not a little Salinger.

    The thing is, since you put your mix up there and declared that you could beat match when you obviously couldn't it's obvious that you can't discern the difference with your ears yet. So no, you haven't seen "plany."

    Your time would be better spent on practicing than playing out your little character here.

    listen to my latest and best mix ive done

    at 6:10 how would you rate that.
    to me thats beat matching but i will most likely be proven wrong
    Wow the beatmatching is bad. You should try playing with CDJs, and I mean CD ones, when you have no way out but learning it you will eventually learn it.

    That academy looks pretty legit. My advice would be to go for it if you have the time and (obviously) money. However, do not think that you will be opening for Carl Cox straight after you graduate, these courses are great for teachng you the fundamentals, techniques etc but actually learning to pick the perfect track & perform is something they cannot teach you mate. This only comes from experience. Good luck.

    I saw Carl Cox a few years back in Tokyo, and that a-wad went on a 10 minute scratch masturbation marathon at the end of his set before throwing his record out vertically like a throwing star and hitting some poor girl right in the face with it. Who the fck throws a record like that?

    Depends if they are enjoying it more than the audience. I liked him when he was playing, but at the end, with no music playing, just scratching without it being danceable he lost the audience.

    My bad, memory is not as good as I thought, Wasn't Carl Cox, although I did see him, it was DJ Rush who pulled the ninja move.

    You need to get a life, you keep replying to my comments and I just ignore you because you're a prat I use this forum on my phone and tbh I don't give a shit about spelling it an Internet forum I quickly post my reply then get back to my day but clearly you sit on the forum all day thinking you're a big man. An yea I have son I know what good mix is and a great mix just because I can't do it myself dosnt mean I don't know what a good mix is. To think you wrote a paragraph over my mistake 'plant' tyour the reason why I hate forums there's cunts like you on every forum.
