This tune... 143 BPM 17 bar intro, Strange drum pattern. I've got no chance. I can mix out of the tune alright, but I can't drop it in the mix for the life of me.

Pitch it down just a smidge from 0, press stop on the other deck right before the yayay echo thing. Tune is way to good for a parred double drop.

I've had this record for a decade and still can't mix this one. The weird switch ups with the melody phrasing does me in every time...it's like sometimes it has an extra measure and other times it feels like it's missing a measure... :u:

Untold - Bones (Rockwell Remix)

the fucking rhythm switches every 32 bars, i think the only times I could mix it was with some Shackleton tune.

Lol I tried mixing Radiohead - Idioteque into my last mix. It works but the song structure itself is soooo weird so it never sounds quite right. It's at 137 so i just speed it up a tad to 140 and it works alright.

The structure is probably not that "weird". It's just that it isn't just 16/32 bar loops glued together.

seems to be 4/4....what are you listening to that you can't count? the intro? just remember how the beat sounds over those stabs and it should be a bit easier.
Only the madman is absolutely sure.

What makes it so difficult? The first sound in the track is on the first beat and it has normal song structure. No weird time signature or changes.

In my hummble opinion, nowadays people try to mix each song. The quality is another question

Learn trips me up. It's all nice and uniform at first but when that sample comes it throws me the fuck off.

the extra beat before the second drop in request line is a bit annoying when i forget about it.

also my copy of coolie joyride skips so it's pretty impossible to mix.

that's it tbh.
