    I'm still undecided - I may go for a repetition of my Xmas mix and go for a smooth lounge mix for those hot summer nights, or I may to funk it up a little. Lounge is where I began and it's probably what I feel most comfortable with. Of course, depending on how I feel when I make the mix it could end up as a totally eclectic mic of whatever new tunes I've picked up by then.

      ive done mine already as i havent done a mix for you guys yet. its all the stuff i like. though i dont have the rarest tunes and im a propper crap dj still i had fun doing it. and i like all the tracks so it sounds good to me. some soul funk charity shop finds some songs people have sampled basically my favoite tracks from my record collection. wasnt sure what to do at first as i wanted to show my rare tracks but then realised you people probably have them all already. youll just have to excuse the crap mixing as ive only had my decks for about 6 months and im still learning. though when i recorded my mix it went on for 2 hours so i had to cut some bits out to fit it on a disk. so i apologise in advance for my crapness but there is some nice tracks on it. though i probably just do another one next week as i change my mind as to what i like daily.... ill stop rambling on now

                You don't have anything to worry about here Eric - I had the exact same thoughts running through my head back in October/November when I was preparing my very first ever mix, for the Xmas CD swap.

                All turned out nice in the end though - produced something I thought was passable and even got some great comments back from the other swappers!

                Everyone here is very open minded to the fact that not everyone is a world class (or even small town class) DJ, or a technical wizard when it comes to all things audio.

                    I've changed my mind (already) - it's going to be an all Xtian mix from me this time around. A bit of folk, a bit of funkiness and lots of daft lyrics.

                    Apologies in advance ;-)

                        Not that the alternative i.e. gospel and jazz would be in any way unwelcome.

                          I am veering towards mellow folkfulness after the solid ass kicking latin rock/psych rock/acid rock/ punk rock of the last one. Some nice things which I left off as they did not fit at all.

                            Yeah, but there'll be plenty of rare funk 45's on yours and Beavers set already John !

                            I'm gonna stick with playing something different.

                              And that's what it's all about.

                              I'm mad on funk and collected if for years but it's always good to be exposed to the great sounds outside the funk genre.
