Question for everyone here...
When your mixing (at home, or at tha club), how much emphasis do you place on "set building" or "programing"? How much thought goes into it? Do you think about it before the set? During the set? Both? Do you start with point A and take it to point B? Does this occur over the entire span of the set? Or just within several tracks... like 2-3 tracks of X-type, 2-3 tracks of Y-type, etc, etc. Or... is it more just dropping tracks, and riding the groove?
Lastly, if you are "set building", what is your primary focus... energy? color? mood? genre/sub genre?
What say you?
