Here’s a simple but amazing example of how mapping cue points to individual notes in a riff, and then playing a new riff using those notes (while slowly filtering the track into the mix) can tease your crowd before giving them what they want. Works every time!

Featuring a funky house track mashed up with a stone-cold electro-pop classic, this cross-genre technique is really easy for you to do in your own DJing, no matter what controller or software you use. Give it a try!
