To make the parts fit together, Byron had to use a technique called ‘time-stretching’. Exactly what does this entail?
Time-stretching has become a very valuable tool for producers and remixers working in hip-hop, R&B and dance music. In those genres, mixes are often constructed by taking samples and breakbeats from many different sources. Sometimes the beats do not have the same pulse but time-stretching allows the remixer to find a common pulse for different parts.
