Definition

This is a technique used by DJs to move seamlessly from one song to the next.

As one song is being played, the next song is lined up. By using pitch shift on the turntable to slightly speed up or slow down the tempo of the upcoming song, the tempos are matched. The DJ then crossfades from one song to the next. This process can then be repeated.
