Pretty creative poll, very nice !!

This is one I haven't seen. I can't vote, though, I'd need at least two answers, because it depends pretty entirely on the style of music itself.

It's rare to find DJs who have an outstanding command of their genre, and they're all the more compelling if they veer into multiple styles.
If the selection is top-notch, I don't care if they even mix.

I like that you cannot see the results of the poll until you have voted - very scientific!
So I voted in my own poll.

Wish that the rep did the same thing as these polls
I wish more DJs did the "Continuous flow of beats regardless of style or genre played"

shoulda made it multiple selection, i dont wanna choose just one option in the poll
depends on a lot of things really
someone like Bong-Ra will be ALL THE FUCK over the place, wild crazy amen mashed up psycho bass heavy goodness....but then bring it all back from dance floor smashers to something that has a patterned beat (do dubstep for a few tracks) and slew it back into the crazy reality he was just at
some genres, like trance or house (no specific sub-genres) kinda NEED to be one continuous flow or else the set will be kinda weird (as in, noticably lame). but other genres like breakcore can go anywhere, do anything, no rules and there shouldnt be.
take jungle or dnb for another example
DNB has more set patterns of drums and snares to follow...so DRUM AND BASS should have more of a flow to it.... then again it depends on the tune selections and how the DJ wants to collab the tunes picked for the set (cause not all dnb is the same, by all means).
then there's jungle....
a lot of jungle you can mix seemlessly, but in my experience its not a genre that one can make one simple straight mix and have a continuous flow to (that flow ONLY comes from the tracks being selected for the set, not how the songs were specifically produced/sequenced).
(between the first video or third there, would be easiest to have them blend and drop at a the bridge instead of trying to straight blend and mix the two together....all 3 would work, id think, but it wouldnt work as a continuous flow)
plus personally since everyone is switching to digital and such, its harder to tell if the DJ is really doing anything besides picking out a track on their next playlist (shoot, they could be just hitting play on a previously recorded set too).
im not against it, thats not what im saying and is off topic to this thread :)
just saying i dont mind hearing someone not being 100% perfectly on the mix...lets me know AND HEAR they are human and not playing something pre-recorded
if the mix is a complete wreck, thats another topic...if its supposed to get messy for a sec, drop, then bring in the sickness...maybe the tracks and mix were supposed to be that way
lots of variables in the dj, performance, skills, tracks, and genres used

I just love to dance with DJ in any style of music.
