ok, say youve got two-two and a half hours to build. do you:

a. make a set that is divided into genres? (1 hour tech, then an hour prog and so on)?

b. drift through all the genres during the set (two tracks tech, one prog, and so on)?

c. stay with the same genre through the whole set?

i guess it all depends on what styles you play...

if i had my way id play 2 and 1/2 hours of Full-On and Old School Madness but you gotta think of the crowd.

so maybe like this,

minimal tek/psy
dark prog
old school hard melodic

but then it also depends what time your playing...

thnx guys for the replies, but i need to know about the order of the set, not its content.
i mean, i know which styles im going with, just help me organize it.
so again:
a. categorized set (1 hour this and only this, then half an hout that , and last half hour something else)

b. mish mash set (techy track into a prog one, then two tech and a psych, and so on)

c. all the set the same genre

i've never heard dj's played an old school set before, to me it would be kinda awesome say playing the past 4year's killer tracks for 1 &1/2 hours. would really blow me mind away, i mean a trance party lasts for 24hrs plus, why not dedicate some time to old school classics?

i think each DJ should have his own Unique Style and he should play what he like the best !!!

i agree with Asi, you shouldn't try to force a plan for the set, sets build themselves. tunes naturally flow and you should be able to feel the vibe of the party and be on top of your music enough to be able to be flexible, chose the direction of the music depending on the time of night or day, location, length of set, dj before and after and so on.

you cannot plan a set for every occassion, let go and feel the music flow through you and you will know what to play, it all comes with confidence...           live life; be free

read the crowd...if they want prog give em prog.. if they want madness give em madness....
it's about the crowd and what they want and are paying for....
too many dj's thes days playing what they wanna amazes when a dj will be playing a number of great new tunes but the crowd aren't enjoying it and leave the dance floor for a scoob yet the dj will still be playing whats new in his bag or what he wants to hear...

This is what makes you who you are... picking your own mix. Just dont slam them into full on. Depending on what the ocassion is of course, breakbeat is a good start for the night. Prog house usually follow, then the mix needs to explode after everyone is good and drugged. THen gradually slow it down to some chill out or just keep it banging. just the way i do it. youll still be unique.           -=Keep it Spiritual=-

you should also have an eye (or an ear to be precise...) out what the dj's before you are playing and how the crowd reacts to their style.           Something 'bout those little pills - Unreal the thrills they yield - Until they kill a million brain cells - I'm going down to... La La Land!

a way that works for me if i've got time and inclination is to actually work out a set that i think might work before i head out. Maybe even write a list. Once you're actually up there you can completely ignore it but i find that having a vague idea can give confidence. You've just got to remember that the list you write is definately not the 'be-all-and-end-all' It also helps because my memory is sooooo rubbish that its hard to keep track of new choons.

go from good music to best music, see how the crowd goes, fill their needs and blow their minds...

amm.. only one thing of me - dont (stop) mix beats, start mix lines.. think about it.. beats must be fit for sure, but try find the way u build the "story". its can be everything from break beat/DnB till... everything..           Believe your soul !
