    Love the mix! Love the tutorial. I am literally one level up on skill level. Thank you so much!

    AWESOME tutorial! I techniques for all of the transitions make sense. But what I don’t get is, when you go to perform the mix, have you memorized all of the transitions or are you doing it off of sound/feel in the moment?

      Can be a bit of both. After performing certain tracks for a while you gain a knowledge of how each track can fit together and then experiment a little to find the perfect blend!

    Phenomenal Mix! Just one question, where do you get the songs with the extended intros like Godzilla, because the original song does not have that extended beat intro.

    • Holland

      We source our tracks from DJCity and BPM Supreme record pools. Hope this helps!
