Underneath It All - No Doubt ft. Lady Saw

tempo: 69 bpm

the dj's take: Song #6 in our chapter 56 mix (10:26):

What makes this song especially blendable is the vocal-free, percussion- and bass-infused intro. Here's the relevant section overlapping with the end of Travis Scott's Wonderful in Logic Pro X:

Then I cut out and copy/pasted it with the Marquee tool and made a nice runway into Mac Miller's Cinderella (see highlighted section):

On a side note, here's a questionable idea for a social-media challenge - see how many times you can listen to this on a loop before you go crazy. I'm thinking the older you are, the tougher it gets. Over/under in my case would be 5.5.
