    Offshoot from the 'Easiest song to beatmatch/mix' thread, what's your toughest/hardest one (if you have one) or one that just occasionally or always catches you out?

    Mine would be:

    Ra (Original) [has an irregular bar intro]
    The Militia - Let Loose (Original) [same as above]

    That's it lol...

    Floodlight - can be a bitch due to the low pass filter all the way to the drop.

    not really a problem but the first 15ish seconds of texaco garage vip is so messy it can sometimes get hard, especially if your mixing it with another messy tune i.e killers dnt die.

    I would have to say shimon & matrix - slipstream . I can never make it beatmatch , but maybe that's just my personal problem ..

    yeah. i was going to say i always find it a bit tricky. so sporadic and it's 180bpm too. always find faster tunes a bit of a pain to match up sometimes.

    also,

    Ra aint that hard to mix, the intro is 1 and a quarter phrase long, drop it in earlier or jus go forward 8 beats at the start

    WTF? Ra is EASY to mix. You just start 4 bars into the tune.

    I find Machete difficult to beathmatch

    this thread made me dig out 0121 and it's not as hard as i remember it! still a bit tricky mind, lots of concentration needed.

    break - let it happen
    > hazard - 0121
