So my mixes are getting a bit stale and the same. I primarily do 140bpm Dubstep so it just tends to go
Beat Match (most already 140) - Start track 2 when track 1 starts a new phrase - slowly EQ in track 2 around 8 bar mark - bring down track A when track B is about to drop / swap bass on last beat.
Generally thats how it goes for every track in my mix.
Im looking for more transitions I can do that will still sound good because whenever i cut mid phrase it sounds poor. I dont have controllers for loops, I have some dicers i could try and use but I tend to stay away from all effects (im using serato) but im willing to learn to use them to make things more interesting.
Also in terms of tracks how would you guys advise transitioning around genre? I Intend to listen to some top DJ mixes with multi genre to hear how its done but generally all i can manage is if theres a really quiet no beat breakdown in a track ill just crossfade slowly into the intro of the new genre track pretty fast as i cant beatmatch 140 to 127 for example.
Cheers for any tips, im using a TTM57, CDJ800's and Serato or 1200's with dicers if i get them out the cupboard.
