    I personally like to spin a little faster than average 177 bpm (90). Gives it that hypnotizing effect if done correctly with the right track selection. What do you all prefer?

    How does a 174 bpm track speed up to 177 suddenly become hypnotising?

    Who said the track was originally 174? I said 'certain tracks', not every track.

    I couldn't care less what BPM it was TBH I just play songs I like and mix them with other songs I like - if they work well, they work well. if they don't, well ..... they don't.

    I tend to stay around 178...i dont purposely pick that bpm...my ear just seems to gravitate naturally to that speed when finding new tracks.

    I tend to spin at 2 complete circles per minute. More than that I just get dizzy AF.

    I think everyone is misunderstanding my post or maybe I should have worded it better. I spin both vinyl and on CDJs....I guess what I should have written instead is "If and when you play on CDJ's, what bpm do you like to spin it at?"

    Didn't think the post would attract so many assholes. But whatever! :)
