Key Matching your DJing mixes Summery
Here’s the third video in Andy Touchfingers’ Mixed in Key video tutorial series for djs. Andy demonstrates in this video how to listen to tracks for different sections, many of which have different keys (much like an entirely different song within the main song). He also continues to show us how to match keys of tracks using software.
“Some kinds of music are very logged in to one tonal center” explains Andy. Many different genres have different song structures, and some have more movement in tone. He also tells us how music with a lot of effects and strange noise are difficult to key, simply because of the strange nature of the sounds!
Andy also explains how the Circle of Fifths works, which is very valuable to know in order to understand how different keys go with each other.
