    I got an album yesterday from trackitdown and all the songs have different BPMs, 5 or 6 are around 170-177 which is great but the other 10 are coming up in Traktor as 115-150... I'm really struggling to mix these, does anyone have any tips?

    they arent those bpms (especially the 115), the algorithim it uses probably just work it out to that... and use ur ears to beatmatch, not the screen or the sync buttom

    Right click dem tracks, and do a new Analyze make sure to set the bpm spectrum to like 160-220 that makes sure it will find the bpm in that region, probrem solveruuuuh!

    If the bpm is too far out then try being creative with it. Mix using atmosperic intro/outros and breakdowns.
