Through The Wire - Kanye West



tempo: 83 bpm

bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm

the dj's take: Leadoff song in detour 44:



Had to do a little surgery in Logic Pro X for the transition into the next single:


That's kind of the blessing and the curse of technology (as someone who didn't use software until well after I quit dj'ing) - I had a certain way I wanted it to sound, but the music and the beat structure weren't quite cooperating. Worked out in the end, after some trial and error on my part.

And just in case you were wondering if I'm a fan of this track, we used it to end Episode 38 (17:34):



Took the last little section of the song and stuck it in the beginning to avoid clashing with the Taylor Swift vocals:


Crisis averted. Unlike the 2009 VMAs.

Time to Pretend - MGMT

tempo: 101 bpm The DJ's Take: Track #5 in mix #62 (8:05): I wanted to go a little off-beat in this mix, step outside traditional pop and hiphop, and this one fit the bill. A little on the louder side, and I didn't want to drown out the previous song with the screeching riff at the beginning, so we brought the volume down a little: Bound to bring out the inner-hippie in a crowd; worth a spin for a change of pace. Some key-compatible music from 100 to 105 bpm: Classic - The Knocks ft. Powers Too Close - Next Levitating - Dua Lipa ft.
