Harmonic Mixing

Most people (interested in djing) understand the idea of beatmatching, which means synchronizing the tempo of two tracks, blending between them and as a result creating a mix / set :) But, have you ever heard about Harmonic Mixing ? It's an idea of playing music / mixing in the same key (or changing the scale by using "Camelot wheel"), as a result the blendings between tracks seem very natural, and it's very easy to create all kind of mashups etc.
Who does support harmonic mixing ? Well, there are certainly some big names :) Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Pete Tong from BBC Radio 1 etc.

But the idea of harmonic mixing can confuse some people. First of all, you need to know the root key of each song - commercial software like Mixed In Key can handle it pretty well. Then, quite often, you need to change the tempo of track which also means changing the root key. That's the point where it gets confusing and that's why I decided to share some useful links about harmonic mixing.
