    Beautiful People Beatmatching?

    This may sound like a complete n00b statement but for some reason I find Somebody I Used To Know (Tiesto Remix) the most difficult song to mix The kick messes up my flow somewhat. Is this just me? I've been DJing for about 4 yrs and i find this the most difficult track to mix...

    Focus on the snare instead.

    Or the hihats. Gave it a listen, I can see how the double kick could throw you off.

    It'll come to you

    Are you having trouble finding the 1 beat? the double drum hits are the end of a 2 bar phrase...the down beat is the first beat after the double snare. So its double kick double snare then the 1 beat. Get that and then listen to the high hits as they are more constant...

    You should try to find the mashup of Avicii's Levels with Somebody I used to know. It works wonders!

    There was also a mash up of Sebastian ingrosso / alessos calling and somebody I used to know floating around that was pretty awsome.

    Was on one of tiestos podcasts!

    It was a little tough for me when I first heard it, but I just stuck it in as the first song on my podcast so I didnt have to mix into it.
