Ah here we go...
I got this tune... I think just cos I like the sounds, but it's sort of relevant here... but what style is it? Grime?
I find that one very hard to mix though... partly cos I'm shit at mixing, and partly cos it's a style that I don't play. And maybe it's a bit tricky anyway I dunno.
I mean I find it hard to match the beat.cut the bass from the incoming track. once you have the crossfader in the middle, use the eqs and gains to alter the incoming track. you can have both hands on the mixer to do this with both decks. then, instead of flicking the crossfader to one side, first gradually take out one of the tracks with the eqs, and slam the crossfader once you are finished, not too finish.

Yeah I know how to do it - and I get that trick - I'm just saying that that kind of beat, especially with all the gaps in it is quite alien to what I've mixed before... but yeah there is no reason that I couldn't figure it out with a bit of practice for sure. In fact I have done. It's just harder for me to mix than other things.
otherwise you could start saying things like the jungle producer who made this wolverine nintendo soundtack in the mid-90s made the first ever grime track. or some random IDM thing that someone finds that sounds like grime in 1993 or something.
