    anyone else notice the key chart facility on chemical records? they list the key the tune is in, you click on it and it tells you other tracks in that key, how wicked is that? i haven't actually used it yet, i got so excited and had to come tell everyone

    you don't need an account...

    And you'll all be pleased to hear that Machete is in A Minor...

    Meaning that it'll go great with every other Hazard tune...






    Which are all in A minor...

    i think you need the account to get recommended tunes in a key that works with it.

    imo i think thats abit shit.....half the fun about mixing is finding out which tunes are in the same key and finding a nice blend....seems like a bit of a cheat way if they are telling u it all....

    saying that, im sure its useful for people who have no musical background or anything so fair play....but i personally wont be using it....

    Also playing with two hands and both eyes open is also a cheat.

    Actually its also cheating if you don't have to peddle to keep your decks running.

    And you know what the greatest cheat of all is, that's buying records instead of actually playing the tracks live, by yourself. After you figure out all the notes and effects etc.

    Basically there are some keys will match eachother pretty well even if theyre not exactly the same

    e.g if a tune is in C maj, tunes in G maj and F maj will also match pretty well cos there's only one note different in the scale (F sharp and B flat respectively) the higher and lower key matches refer to these other similar keys

    yeah, its only the key though isnt it...nothing to do with the actual beat of the song
