    I have a question do some dnb tracks change bpm after a intro or drop. For example sub focus flamenco clearly speeds up almost 2 bpm from the start to about 1.30. so the only way to keep the track beatmatched with the other is to keep sliding the pitch fader down. Is this a faulty copy of the track or does that track genuinely supposed to do that

    It's your bpm counter.
    They aren't perfect and should only be used as a guide.

    Use your ears for music and save your eyes for movies.

    I have the same issue (I guess) with BC - The 9. The vinyl mixes perfectly, yet the mp3..no matter of what CD I took it..can´t keep it on track.

    It's because back in the day, that was another way of keeping released tracks exclusive. You had to be really good to play certain tracks out and keep them in the right tempo. Special props to Andy C introing Nightlife 3 with it.
