Hey this is DJ Hurricane here in South Beach Florida. In this clip let's talk about how to Beat-Match records. For the first time we will be talking about the pitch adjuster on your turn table. As we play this song you'll see that I can slow it down or speed it up. Let's leave it about right there and now I'm going to cue up my other song in my headphones. Got the beginning of my song and now I'll let you hear it a little bit. Now I dropped it on the one, but it is drifting off, I can hear it's going slower so I'll give it a little push with my finger and help it stay on and as I do that I will adjust the pitch slider a little faster and I don't hear it drift off any more. Now that I got that I re-cue it. Now I drop it on the one and this is how we're going to mix it in. This is DJ Hurricane in South Beach and this is how to Beat-Match records
