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 : Some other key-compatible music: Everything We Need - Kanye West, Ant Clemons, Ty Dolla $ign Never Be Like You - Flume ft. Kai Save Your Tears - The Weeknd Still The Same - Bob Seger Bad Romance
