Beat matching

Beat matching is the method of blending the end of one record into the beginning of another record, creating a seamless transition between the two and providing a consistent beat even though a new song is playing. Most commonly, this is used by DJs in dance or rave clubs so that music is playing continuously and the beat doesn’t change. In order for beat matching to work, the DJ must make sure that the tempo of the two songs is the same, and he must monitor the incoming song to ensure that when the new song begins the beat lines up with the outgoing song. A DJ can also use the pitch control on the turntable to speed up or slow down a record to match the beats of two records.
