    Tell me how you like it

    Hey if your looking for DJ work seriously... i'd redo the mix.
    I only listened to the first few mins - the mixing sounded dreadful, there's beats out everywhere - sorry!
    no one will hire you if they listen to that.

    On the good side of things, the type of music you play seems very popular in HK.

    It's a crying shame, HK deserves better, no wonder it's considered a wastland by a number of musicians and DJ's who could stop off on their way to Tokyo / Sydney, but don't due to HK being so click/tech/snooze/whistle posse oriented..

    Just my 59 cents - I've not listened to the mix so can't comment..

    Jeskola : I don't get what you mean with "beats out everywhere"? can you explain? i would love improving it as soon as I come back and buy new decks, as I am selling those, they fuck up too often.

    I have no idea what is popular in HK, but I mainly play electro ( cliche I know), currently looking for some new tracks though, got any ideas? any type of music is welcome!

    A DJ should atleast be able to mix two tracks together in which the beats match. I wouldn't get your hopes up too high about landing any gigs with that demo.

    No problem.

    The first 5 or 6 mins - i could hear that the beats you were mixing in were out of time, i could hear beats under the main track playing that were out of sync - so it didn't sound to great. At around 2:00, 4:50 for example and 5:12 - doesn't sound too great!

    Most people who mix like that on decks go on to lap-top and become famous

    dub is the awesome, i like tribal, psy trance, and house too. I also agree with Makkun and Jeskola, Hong Kong deserve better...we should represent it an international city, right!!
