Yep, it works if the crowd knows you're a good dj and know what you're doing. Otherwise they might think you're just screwing up your beatmatching... so I'd only combine it with scratching or high quality mixing even though its not too difficult to do (especially on cds, just look at the play time).

yeh its pretty simple mate, if you think about it, you're using two of the same tunes so the bpm's gonna be exactly the same. Its just a case of matching the kick on one tune with the snare on another, rather than matching two kicks... or however you want to do it... :|

I remember when the remix of hand grenade came out, i used to do it all the time! It sounds funny as fook! :teeth:

Get same two records playing exactly together so there is virtually no delay and put them both into the mix and then jog one record or hold a spindle for a flange (?) effect.

Kind ov, if you play the 2 tracks at exacalty the same time the flanger effect comes in.

i get a next type of flange when mixing g dub tunes,
for example,
les misrebles and snowman they have the same snare so the flange hits the snares and nothing else if you get what i mean.
its ok but it fucks the bass up.

just on that, i was wonderin how many of u guys, when cueing up a record as a normal mix, release the record on the first beat of a bar, or on the snare a split second later, im the only one of my mates that does it on the snare, i find it just gives ya a bit more time (not much, granted)

Can you do that then cue with snare and drop it in on the second beat of a bar (snare)?
Does anyone else find it easier to beat match using the snare.
I mean you could cue up with the kick but then match the snares???????????????????:twitchy:
