This applies to all club orientated music. As a DJ, the amount of tracks I wanted to implement into a set but didn't due to their DJ unfriendliness was ridiculous.
Most DJ's seem to overcome this by ignoring it, they concentrate solely on beat matching and don't seem to care about key clashes or the resultant noise they create. Then again, most DJ's don't even seem to be capable of beat matching!
Cutting in records can be just as creative as beat matching, so if it ain't going to mix - don't mix it!
Of course, everybody at Dancetech will be producing tunes with long percusive intros and outros from now on so DJ's can mix and chop 'till their hearts content!

BTW, I'd really like to get into DJ'ing as a second hobby but I wouldn't know where to start. Have you done any of it R-Tek? Anyone have input about how to start off DJ'ing? I got all the gear I need to do it I guess just not the faintest clue how to start.

When i mix, i love to mix from the intro so when the drums stop on the other record, the new record's drums kick in, or something else happens on the new record i.e. new verse. That's when you know when you got a good mix. In Da Fucking mix!!
It's mainly about timing personally speaking.
R-Tek, you'll be able to hear what i mean cus i sent you that cd today (thurs) at last....

I don't like compressed sound.
I don't like fruity fx.
But it's good apps

For all of you who know what it means to be broke, I am talking shoebox. I need music but don't want to go out an buy 500 dollars worth of records. To start off, I'd like to use stuff that I have and maybe get a few disks that you guys could recommend. Dark agressive jungle is really where my mind is these days. Even a track or two that you know of will get me out there buying the stuff. (I'm in the Boston USA area if geography vs. style is important). My real goal in all of this would be to create an outlet where I can play my own music in clubs. I would do it gradually, trying to get a feel for the mixing part at first. I've been pondering this for about a year and know that it's time that I get out there...somehow.
