In truth I am a little nervous about this one as I like preparing playlists and to release a raw mix like this without rehearsing or knowing the tracks in advance makes me feel a little exposed. However I share it and make public because I feel it's important for people to know - even more experienced DJs make mistakes when rehearsing - that's how we learn about new genres and get ideas. They say if you wish to completely master something, you have to first be a disaster. Either way, despite what people may say - I had fun and if you lace your jamming sessions with a sense of fun and enjoyment then, in my opinion, this is the first rule of success - fun and play - it's the only way!! Thank you for your support! Personally I like preparing and if you would like a free mini course on how to prepare the perfect playlist (which includes videos on:
- where to set cues - using DJ software - mixing harmonically and so much more) check out this link: https://www.clubreadydjschool.com/free-videos/

I had so much fun DJing this. The challenge: a student in the Club Ready Tribe (winner of previous round), selects a genre, selects 5 tracks FROM that genre and then posts in the Club Ready Tribe group and students then create a mix using those 5 tracks and can share in the group and students in the group vote and give feedback. This is a great skill building exercise, it also helps to get students active in the group and opens up their network and experience. This is my entry to the contest!
Firstly, thank you for the people that suggested that I do a Psy Trance Set. personally until now, although being a fan of psy trance and going to many a doof in the old days, I've never actually played it before and I can see now that was a big mistake.
The best way to know how to mix specific genres is to find an artist that specialises in a particular genre and then listen to some of their live sets on soundcloud and notice how much of each track they are playing and how they do their transitions.
In my experience there's different ways to mix most genres and it usually comes down to prep vs no prep. Personally I feel both have their advantages but today, off the back of last weeks video, I want to take the concept of no prep to the next level and go one step further and cover the screens which means I have no visuals cues.
