This site has it all, now it continues to educate us all. Here is a step-by-step explanation of a mixing technique. While not the only technique, it is the most commonly used. I feel safe in saying that, but realize that other methods were used. Mixes are all about timing, I feel safe in saying that too, and execution of mixes involves quickness, coordination, and simply KNOWING what sounds good. In the early days, few mixed the way it is described there. There was not that common knowledge. But by the time this article came out, it was standard practice to BEAT MIX. Some, like Carlos Nodal & Larry Levan, did not always do that. And they remained incredibly popular and successful deejays. So MAN, here is a hint, a direction as to how it is done!
