fucking this is so ridiculous...I am still not quite sure how I got caught up in this...all I did was offer an opinion on a dude wanting to record a mix and BAM I am in the middle of a cyber competition with some fuckwit from canberra who doesn't have any gear...seems a little off don't you think??

Still need some judges, as for voting there should be a couple of criteria scored out of 10, person with highest score in all categories wins.
  • Set flow - how well do the selected tracks match up, does the set have an ebb and flow
  • Track selection - how good are the tunes they are playing
  • Transition Quality - How good ar ethe transitions (i.e. no galloping)
  • Fist Pumping/Jesus Poses - Quantity/Quality of poses they pull off while managing to smash out tracks
  • Scratching - Bonus points for scratches, flares, cuts, transformers etc full points if you incorporate body tricks
  • Sampling - Bonus points for sampling other tracks
  • Originality - Bonus points for creating something new by use of accapellas etc

Total points can be 50 + 30 bonus points up for grabs. I can't see anyone managing 80 points in a 10 minute mix - prove us wrong.

Feel free to add to the list

I can assure you that is so far off the mark it's just silly. I'll send you my time sheets if you want...ever worked a 70+ hour 7 day week??or 4 in a row?? didn't think so.

I don't mind though,I wont use that as an excuse, I will make a bit of time to pwn you... I get the feeling your thinking you have dug yourself a hole you don't really like the look of laying in?? am I right?

how long does it take to do a 10 minute mix?



no excuses ... just get on the mix ... you shouldn't need to do any practice ... part of the challenge is getting it out without fukking about

I want it to be the 17th because from the 20th I am on annual leave, and dont want to give myself any unfair advantage

Havn't read the thread BUT......


Pulled the decks out in to the real world one morning after an almighty bender, showing off all my bootlegs /whitelabels etc to all my friends only to take a quick smoke break from mixing and to discover they had all turned into warped - unplayable pieces of shit woo! !




So yeah, 10 minutes in the summer sun is enough to ruin christmas

ooh man this is good

i think there should be extra points for the number of 1000's used and minus points for anything non pioneer (because this means you know nothing about dj'ing) if you use records you automatically win because alledgedly they sound the best and make you a better dj than anyone who uses cdj's or pretty much anything else

all my demos have been done in 1 take, i feel they should be a representation of what i can do in a club. i dont plan my sets in clubs, nor do i practice them, so my demos are the same.

in fact a couple of my demo's have been mixes ive banged out at home and decided they were good enough to give to promoters etc. seems to have worked seeing i play regularly.

People practice DJing??

As I said before...70 hour weeks, 7 days, full time uni etc etc, I will probably get one shot at this, we'll just have to see how it goes I guess.
