DJ CAMS: The Math of Mixing

Bet you had no idea that the word “quadrant” was a crucial part of creating a bangin’ radio mix. Or that your favorite club beats mirrored a sine wave. Or even that drilling decimals preps you for the kind of discipline you need to be a world-class game changer.

Cate sits down with DJ CAMS for ten minutes chock-full of music, math, and advice on how to reach your wildest creative dreams. CAMS is a San Francisco-based mix master who has spun in huge venues everywhere from Vegas to Croatia, sharing stages with Ellie Goulding, Kaskade, and Chromeo. Known for being a true music evangelist of all genres, he’s created an exclusive mix for 11 Betties.

So grab a pencil and paper and take some notes. You might look at those dreaded rate problems differently: they’re priming you for a little thing calls beats-per-minute.
