    Hey guys, I aint been around for a while, I’ve been crazy busy with work and Uni and have rarely been on my computer.

    I’ve hit what I would call a DJ’s Block. I’m still mixing and trying to sort out gigs and whatnot. But I’m starting to be very picky with the mixes I make, I’m pointing out flaws to myself that I normally wouldn’t and because of that, haven’t uploaded any new tracks.

    I’m unsure as to whats the best way to get out of this or even if it’s possible, It’s not like I don’t want to do this anymore, it just feels like everything I try to make, isn’t good enough.

    Your thoughts?

    I know exactly what you mean man, I had this about a year ago myself, didn’t know where my DJ’ing was going, or if it was even going at all.

    But I just cracked on, kept mixing away, but I also listened to loads of other DJ’s mixes. This helped me sort of compare my stuff to theirs, see where I thought my level of DJ skills where actually at.

    One thing that did help relive my block, was landing a residency. It was something new, and it was like a breath of fresh air. Just keep cracking on maybe try and find a new “project” to do with DJing and you will overcome this “DJ Block”

    Hope this helps 🙂

    Thanks bro. I’m literally forcing myself to make a mix today and get it up on Soundcloud! Hopefully getting something out to the people will be what I need.

    Yaka’s got it right, just give yourself a new project. What area of DJing are you not very good in? Do that, even if it’s not something that really suits your style the more you know the better. DJ blocks are a pain though, especially when you spend most hours staring at a wall and not a crowd of people.

    Thanks for the advice guys. It’s good to know it’s not just me that has experienced this!

    Play out! Get a gig somewhere and use a crowd and public DJing to break your block.
