Hey guys so I just did my first mobile set last night (40th b day), it's the first of a few for this summer and I was just wanted some opinion on this.
I came from bedroom DJing and doing clubs so i'm use to beat matching and making tracks flow nicely between one another. Obviously this isn't the case with a wedding/older crowd. I found myself just dropping the new track on the one or doing a fade between tracks.
For events like this is beat matching even relevant? Obviously it is when you get a dance floor going and your spinning chart music but for early on is it better to just maintain a consistent feel even if the BPM's don't match.
For example early on I was just playing through classic motown stuff and laid back funk tracks and I would just drop it on the one.
What do you guys think?
