not really, some are faster than others, its not that hard...

Funky is kind of the same tempo as garage, as is some slow dubstep, its all about SELECTION

hmm most of the funky tunes i have seen are around 128-132.

obviously some garage is that slow..but not much dubstep is!

cough

we do this on sub.fm often

slow funky (128?) -> normal funky(132?) -> faster funky(135?) -> slower (or works slower) dubstep(137) -> normal dubstep(140)

easy!

some funky is real slow, geeneus for example
some is all over the shop, roska for example
some is quite quick reall like Fuzzy Logik.

make sense? you just have to pick your funky tunes wisely.

Whats been said above really. Its as much about knowing your records as it is technical ability. If you're running tunes in the 135-138 region then you have can manouver with the different styles

So are people constantly pitching things up and down in a subtle way? Cos even if you go through a load of transitions surely you'll be playing everything at a standard bpm if you're beatmatching it?

I reckon they are yeah, I always play dubstep at about -4 anyway though so mixing garage and funky at different tempos isn't much of an issue as far as that goes, my mixes sounding shit is a bit of an issue though.

mm, i dont know about other people, but sometimes its got to be done, but litterally a couple of mm (millimeters) very very gradually i find.. cause anything else just sounds bate & shit like just a bate slowdown/speed-up sounds like dog poo.

2009 is all about shit mixing

It's a backlash against ableton and CDRs

yes indeed i would try to adjust the cross fader or sliders, depending on mixer setup, to mix from dubstep to house.

dubstep and house do mix well together, just got to ride that pitch sometimes.

yeah i certainly nudge the pitch between mixes every now and then. not constantly though. my sets tend to go from 128 at the lowest through to 140, thats not so much

some of dark night's tunes are fast, sound really good in a blend of dubstep & funky.
