Posted:I know we have a couple music threads already, but this is something a little different so I started a new one.

I've been working on some new stuff and a few full sets. Most DJ's at any event play hour long sets, but after making the last 10 minute track I was thinking of doing some more of that.
What do you guys think about a CD full of more 8-10 minute mixes?
Would be more appropriate for spinning I would think.

I'll still work on some full sets of course, but on days I can't sit down and devote hours to music I could make shorter mixes and post them here.
Seems we have a couple of other DJ's here too so maybe they can mix a few and upload them for us as well?

Feel free to post suggestions or requests too. I know Sister Eleven was hoping for a glitch track, unfortunately I don't have a wide selection of glitch, not too good with it anyway. Any glitch DJ's here?

Posted:Not sure, because the spinning set I've seen are up to 7 min's max. I'd get tired playing much longer.

Personally I prefer mixes that change in atmosphere and tempo - not like in a wave pattern but building up (or releasing)...

Post links once you got them and I'll have a listen - will let you know smile

Posted:I hear you on those hour long sets. I'm a set DJ myself for the time being. I try to put in breaks where you can take a break from spinning and relax a bit.

Posted:Check the dubstep mix in the video collab thread, I was soberish for that one laugh3

Finally listened to it all the way through.
Quality is a bit rough, few of the mixes are sloppy, think it will be a good start to something though.
Just got to find the names of some of the stuff I used, don't know what half of that is. Was just throwing in stuff at random laugh3
