Like DJ Val this reminds me at my first mixes too! This trance is called "Jumpstyle"! I have done many Jumpstyle - mixes when I have started! And as in your mix the transitions were rough first. Then I have worked in teams, have mixed and mixed and have got better and better!
Jumpstyle is a happy music for the club and I have really enjoyed to hear this good old sound after a long time! Just mix more and you get better and better! I have told it: Some transitions are rough in your mix, but in my very first mix it was also so by me! So work on!
When you work and work you hear more and more and you come perhaps to "deeper" sounds and minimal, electro house or crazy funky house. Or to harmonic and progressive trance. So it is!
Perhaps you are yet fancy to mix more Jumpstyle to have some jump mixes for the club! Do what you like and mix your music!
And like DJ Val has said: It´s amazing to see the beginning of a new DJ! Great, great!
Hi Charmaine, commercial trance is what got me into my music career way back in time lol.
I loved your tracklisting with some great classics. Where are the Pulsdriver and Paffendorf of today?? With this being your first mix you have done well. There are a couple of tiny little iron outs but this will come over time, just to say try watch the volumes with your intro's and outro's but as I said this will come with practice and time. Otherwise overall this is a good mix for your 1st Time so well done and well done to your Dad for showing you the ropes and encouraging you. It's always great to see new talent come through and female djs at that! Girl power..
