    I wonder if my cousin would be up for this challenge? He played at a private party that I hosted a couple of weeks ago and he rocked!

    I feel you
    In every vain
    In every beating of my heart
    In every breath I ever take
    I feel you
    Anyway, in every tear that I might shed
    In every word I've never said
    I feel you
    I feel you
    I feel you

    I recently did a 1 hour mix (well its 1 hour and 4 mins, but I could cut off the last 3 mins) Ive only just noticed this now, but that mix is the right length and in the progressive genre... can I use that in this competition?
    "nowadays there are 2 types of DJs. One that is really technical, wants to create an amazing mix, a great sound and then want to go back into the studio and refine what they do. Then the 2nd type who just want to go up turn one knob in front of the crowd, put their arms up in the air and say ‘look at me I just rolled off all the bass for 2 bars’ and pretend they're Jesus’." - Charlie May
