    I just thought, we are sitting on the DJ forum, but we do not show our mixes to each other, let's share and rate each other's mixes?

    My Mix
    https://soundcloud.com/dj_maximizer/test-2
    Refreshing sounds of virtual Ibiza, this mix seems to be running, and it is not going to stop ✊✌

    We can create some criteria by which we will evaluate our mixes, for example
    1. Music Selection 1-5
    Is the entire mix consistent with the style, to what extent all the tracks fit into this mix
    2. Does the mix keep the Flow. Interesting to listen to or not 1-5
    3. Harmonic mixing
    4. Does the DJ use effects in a good way?
    Something else?

    Analysis

    1. Selection of tracks 5+ I really liked the selection of tracks, you have good taste
    2. Flow- 4. It was heard how you used the gradual build-up of energy. Towards the end, after 55 minutes, I expected something a little more powerful. for example, Asys - Acid at 52 minutes was the entrance to this climax, it seems to me after him you could use even more powerful tracks, like this in energy.

    At 17 minutes, the track gets out of the general mood
    3. Harmonic mixing: in general, the whole mix was mixed well, but at 52 minutes, the transition to Asus- acid seemed to me not very suitable in terms of harmony.
    4. Effects. Also I think you can use more effects, I didn’t to hear any))

    In general, a great mix, thanks for sharing, I had no desire to turn it off, and this is the main thing.

    Thanks for sharing
    1. Selection of music 4.5
    I liked many of the tracks in the mix with a dreamy and airy mood! What genre is it?
    2. Flow: 3
    At 1:18:00 the track also knocks out of the mix
    I would say that you need to make a large amplitude in energy, because the mix is listened very smoothly, I would advise to make the descents and ascents more distinct. Judging by the style you like soft sounding, you can try to use such a diagram

    Thank you Chayan @ NI for sharing
    First, it was unusual, deep.
    The mix keeps flow well throughout the entire time. I even went into some kind of hypnosis.
    The tracks are harmoniously mixed very well and the mix sounds very solid

    In some places, the mix seemed a little overstressed, I would be sometimes use tracks with a lighter mood for contrast to give the listener a little rest

    Thank you, subscribed :)

    1 = 4. Gets a bit too cheesy for me around 20min and last 1 or 2 songs kill the mood you built up for me.

    2= 4. Flow is pretty solid apart from above comments.

    3=5. Didn't notice anything sounding weird.

    4=5. They weren't over used, and didnt take away from the flow when used. So no complaints here.

    Thanks shamoo! a lot for the feedback, I agree on the end of the mix, I noticed it too. At 20 minutes, you mean when the groove-mood tracks changed to the major mood at the 17th minute, or the transition at the 21st minute to the Girl track?
