This mix was recorded live, in one-shot, for the Dogs On Acid & Urban Art Forms 2010 DJ mix competition (link: http://www.dogsonacid.com/showthread.php?threadid=668517 ). I did this on April 13, 2010 at home, using Serato SL1 hardware, Serato Scratch 2.0 and a Pioneer DJM-600 mixer. I actually did two mixes, both starting with the same double-drop intro, but the first mix went in to an old Ram Trilogy tune and was full on drum'n'bass, while the mix here, which is the one I submitted, omits the older tune and goes for a little tempo switch at the end.
If anything, this was a fun exercise for me, as it made me think out my mix a bit more and try to go for more impact. It was basically going for the "I am headlining RIGHT NOW" attitude, when I am usually playing opening sets at events, and my mixes are usually more listening to tunes rather than using them as the tools they can be.
Seventy DJs were announced for the contest, and one gets to go to Austria in June 2010. Good luck to
