    All time best mixes

    Hi guys

    I actually had no idea where to put this thread, so if it's wrong I do apologize.

    Lately I've become frustrated of listening to sets where there are absolutely no skills involved. The energy in those sets is so low I just tend to stop listening halfway through because they do not entertain me.

    I remember when I was younger and there was less technology involved, people were more creative. I once watched a video of a techno dj mixing vinyl. He was mixing so fast he put the next record on his back just so he could put the next song on in less than 5 seconds. Amazing to see. Now they just turn a button.

    Look I'm not against technology in se, as long as it's used to make better sets. Which most dj's nowadays don't do.

    The question is, I'm looking for great sets, genre doesn't matter. As long as it has great energy, great transitions, great showcase of skills.

    Entirely mixed on vinyl, great blends, changes in speed while blending etc. Great song selection too, one of my all time favourites.


    Also this, but the amount of DJ tags is a bit too much as you're constantly reminded who mixed it:

    The Dj you refer to is Jeff Mills. He started out as a disco DJ back in the day. The skills required were a lot different to the skills used today by DJs.
    Here's his set.



    One of my favourite mix DJs is Freddy Fresh. Lots of disco, hip-hop, breaks and acid.

    Although from the new breed of DJs there are many with serious talent such as Dj Enferno, although it seems he has recently been going down the commercial route


    As for raw original talent on turntables, I have still never seen anyone with better technique than qbert
