I've started listening to hour long DJ mixes as the soundtrack to my daily runs. I love BigBeat, Funk, GlobalHouse, Soul, mash-up type stuff. There are millions of DJ sets to download but the names mean nothing to me as I left the 'scene' well over a decade ago and find searching for new artists exhausting. Current faves and musical tastes inside, please help me find more? [more inside]

Can people recommend some good hip-hop mixes? I like everything from the underground on up, from the seventies to now. Genre-specific mixes are welcome, and I particularly enjoy traditionally dj'ed mixes (with some beat juggling and good transitions).

How do you keep track of and find new DJs and electronic music - the kind you would dance to at clubs and festivals? The rules seem to be different compared to album-based rock/pop music I'm more familiar with. [more inside]

What is it called when a techno/similar artist mixes a song with chunks or samples of rock songs? What are some artists or songs that do this? [more inside]

On the PC, I used Easy CD Creator 5 to create CD mixes. I loved the ability to create custom transitions between tracks: cross-fades, fade-ins, gaps, etc. What is the best CD mix-making software for Macintosh?
(iTunes is sadly lacking in these sorts of features.) A downloadable shareware app would be great, but I'm willing to consider something like Toast
, even though it costs $80. (Is Toast a good product? Will it let me do cross-fades? The reviews make me wary.) I suppose the best option would be some sort of iTunes add-on to let me do cross-fades, etc. Does such a beast exist?

If you had $200-500 you could use in obtaining an entirely new stereo system, solely for the purpose of making mixtapes, what'd you do with it? [more inside]

CPI over at theta states
has some great downtempo and hiphop sets. Does anyone know where I can find some similar, more uptempo mixes? I'm putting some CDs together for a highschool dance and am looking for the easy way out.

Whats the soundtrack to your pity party? Every good masochist would rather hear depressing songs in their dark hours than be cheered up. What do you listen to when youre not quite here
but you feel like you are?

I'd like to create some mixed audio CDs where I would literally slow down/speed up parts of the songs to merge them together as a DJ does. I'm mainly planning to make club/dance music mixes, although I may do some downtempo/chill mixes too.
I'd like to import some tracks in from vinyl and would do that via my mixer (i.e. I know not to do it directly from the turntable itself.)
Does anyone have any thoughts on the best software to do some simple editing (I hear there is software that can cut hiss and needle pops and whatnot) and then the mixing? I have both XP and OS X, but I'm thinking I would prefer to do this on the Mac.
