That's 125/126 BPM. I don't think we're talking about such thing.

i'm a bit put off by this trend of DJs who create a mix of a whole "genre", but end up playing 40%+ tracks by the same artist(s).
case in point, XDB's "beatdown" mix posted on RA within the last week.
almost every track is Omar-S, Theo, or 3 Chairs related.

funny how there's a name for this "new" "Slowhouse" movement, when these Theo records have been around for (sometimes) up to 12 years....and back then, we didn't have a name for it here.
"Beatdown" was what Mike Clark, Norm, Delano, and Eddie called themselves, and Theo/3 Chairs weren't directly a part of that crew.
in fact, no one wanted to hear these cuts back then--in Detroit--unless Theo was playing them himself.....except Theo played mostly Chicago House & Disco, with only 5% his own records.
kind of like he does now.
and all XDB does is mix his tracks together, and gets all this acclaim:

ridiculous, IMHO.
it's like if i came on the scene 7 years ago and put up a "minimal mix", except it was all Perlon tracks.

at least Atheory's mix only has four 3 Chairs tracks and one Omar-S, but still.....
Totally agree with this, good music never the less. :)

From a DJ's perspective: it's a good thing to change the tempo during a mix, but a whole mix of downtempo house would seriously bore me to death.

From a clubber's perspective: well, everything below 120 bpm is not dancing, it's posing! ;)
