good taste, no random tracks which don't fit together, an ear for what track would go well after the previous track

I like when tracks are not mixed entirely, like just mid-intros or just breaks...

I like sets to be diverse. With alot different music in it. Instead of average nustyle all the way through.
If you put different genres in your mixes (and they fit together with hs, bpm wise and soundwise), like hardtrance and hardcore :)

Hardcore fits to Hardstyle bpm-wise? Are you kidding?
Hardstyle: 150bpm
Hardcore: >170bpm

To mix hardstyle and hardcore you need tracks which sound good at both speed, for example Afflictive - Breadstick (Thera Slowed It Down Mix) is great for transitions between Hardstyle and Hardcore.

Scratching!! _O_
IMO, thats the problem with CDJ's....I've never actually used them before, but it just seems like it's so much harder to scratch properly on CDJs than on vinyl. As a result, nobody bothers to scratch on them. :(

Darycka pretty much summed up everything that hardstyle sets need more of today, but I just want to place more emphasis on good mixing skills. IMO, if a dj knows how to mix PROPERLY, then many things just seem to fall into place. :)

My favourite DJ at the moment. He scratches, plays different genres and is good at mixing :)

Fail of the year. HC stretches from 145-200+...

IMO: Varied tracks, good mixing and proper stage presence :)
I'm grumpier than you.

I meant mainstyle hardcore, and I also think hawl meant it. I know that industrial tracks are sometimes at 145-150 bpm or have even less speed, and I know that there are hardcore tracks which reach even 200 bpm. But this makes it even more difficult to combine it with hardstyle, doesn't it? ;)
