Intergalactic - Beastie Boys

Speed: 106 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #9 in our edition 57 mix (24:32):

Those robot voices in the intro can be loud, so I turned up the volume gradually so it wouldn't overpower the final part of Nelly's Hot In Herre. And if you're picking a spot to transition out, you could do worse than after they say 'let the beat mmm drop' - we used that pause to go into Janet Jackson's If. Overall, a solid choice for a louder hiphop-oriented mix in a more festive venue.

Some other key- and bpm-compatible music:
