When you’re playing tracks everyone knows, it can be great fun to tease your audience so they have a sneaking suspicion they’ve heard the track you’re playing before – but nobody’s quite sure until you drop it properly.

Using the Loopmove feature in Traktor (although most DJ software has something similar, or at least you can map something similar), I mash up the intro of a stone-cold pop/electro classic in this DJ Skill Session. It’s really simple to do and hugely effective.

See how long it takes you to spot what the track is… and if you’d like a full lesson on how to do this along with scores of other DJ tricks, take a look at our Mixing Mastery course.
