You did a lot of the same things I did (especially on transitions) with my first mix. I recommend playing it over and over and over so you find out what you like and what you would like to improve. I personally like songs that sound completely different when mixed together so when I'm working/playing I'm following along without paying attention ...otherwise I end up tuning out the music altogether. Though that is my own personal thing, otherwise I think your attempt was better than mine. I'm also a fan of that Break Remix of Octane and DLR.
That Break remix has to be the best song of the year. I'm still trying to find one that *does it* for me like that one.
This isn't my first recorded mix, but my first one since putting a few hours of practice into it. Trust me, this sounds WORLDS better than my previous attempts, so much so that I actually named it appropriately and not some fake DJ name on dnb share.
I've been listening to it over and over, and I'm definitely going to re do it. Probably soon, re-upload it and such. I too like those mixes that sound nothing alike, but this was pretty spontaneous, so I didn't really put too much thought into it lol, but I could definitely do some rearranging. The first drop could have been much better executed, with switches and to my ears I think I would have preferred having Chaingang's bass at 12, and Drum Circle's bass at 9, not the other way around.
Thanks for the critques guys.
EDIT: Next mix I upload will be a full hour long mix. I don't feel like redoing this one lol.
