It goes without saying that beatmatching is a must for any DJ. Be it hip-hop or a psytrance DJ. Beatmatching means playing another track on the same ongoing beat.
Beatmatching on Hip-hop track is harder than any other 4-signature beat i.e. house or psytrance track. This is because in house genre, kick & bass is repetitive in 4×4 style and the new sound element is introduced in every 4 bars. Whereas in Hip-hop genre, every track is written in different beat signatures. And it’s difficult to find or mix the next track of similar beat, energy or key.
