The Mash!!!

I've been doing quite a few bootlegs or Mash-Ups to those of us in the game for the last few years - but its only been since I've started playing out live that I've started to explore this aspect a lot further. DJs are not getting gigs now purely for their technical ability to be able to mix two tracks together - but for what else they bring to the party!

Having just about got used to using Ableton for this purpose now - I am enjoying being able to mix two, three or in the case of one particular mash-up I'm doing for my forthcoming birthday set - five remixes of the same song - and it does open up a whole different aspect to the art of DJing and how to get the crowd going.
