Out of Touch - Hall & Oates



tempo: 116 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #8 in our #60 mix (12:16):



Fits like a glove over Dua Lipa's New Rules. In fact, if you listen to the transition, it's hard to tell (at least at first) that there are two songs playing at the same time. One thing to keep in mind - when you're mixing into Out of Touch, don't necessarily aim to end the previous song right before Darryl Hall's vocals begin. Focus more on when the opening synths/keyboards come in after the percussion-heavy intro, about 0:16 in.

Also, on the other end, I like getting out of Out of Touch at about the 2:49-2:50 mark, when the little interlude ends. A fun, almost seamless drop into another compatible Hall & Oates hit in Private Eyes. Here's how it looked in Logic Pro X:
