Keep annotations on for explanation!

Tracks used:
Magnetic Man – I Need Air
Rusko – Woo Boost
Chase & Status – Eastern Jam
Doctor P – Vampire Dub

This tutorial is designed to help new DJs get to grips with the basics of Dubstep mixing with the Numark Mixtrack, although this may also help someone using CDJs too. Because all of the tracks used are in the key of E, mixing them is very easy. This should give you an idea of how to practice and what tracks to use, you can find the keys of tracks by using a piano with a trained ear or some DJ software like Virtual DJ.

If youre amazed by this…..idk what to say…..Tip of the iceberg i
guess….
BTW…. The controller he is using is the Mixtrack Pro, i would reccomen
the DDJ-SB, better build quality and has many features……Also looks more
proffesional, instead of looking like your dj’ing with a toy
All he did was blend, nothing else……Simple things

Raven Dubs says:

Badass… I’m buying that thing

Nate Triggy says:

Hi +CautionCrisis this was great, but did you use virtual DJ pro? is that
how you got the key of each track? if so, cost and how to get it?

I don’t really like dubstep but as a dj that was mixing before you were
born lol it was intersting to watch anyway, still not convinced about those
controllers I have so many keys mapped on the keyboard (using VDJ) I feel
like I’m loosing control with them, the jogs I would really like tough 😉
If you don’t have those commands mapped somewhere you should add them :
deck 1 goto -1
deck 1 goto +1
deck 1 goto -4
deck 1 goto +4
deck 2 goto -1
etc…
they allow you to jump from 1 beat to another or by block of 4 beats
(for beginners) techno is based on patterns of 4 to 8 beats and you want
to align your tracks at the beginning of one of those patterns or it will
sound bad
the jump 1 bass command allows you to fix that if you started the 2nd track
at the wrong time
the jump 4 basses command allows you to quickly skip boring parts of a
track almost seamlessly, or advance and then go back into a track for fun,
you can even do it on the main track playing but maybe not on dubstep (too
many rough changes I think) works great for regular techno and house that
have smoother transitions between one pattern and the other.
