Interesting idea.  I think GG's "mix" there had more to do with key relationship
than BPM, though.  I have a feeling that GG would have *loathed* most beat-
oriented dance music however.  He spoke somewhere about the "tyranny of
the bar line" and he seems to have gotten bored quickly with music that was
based largely on repetition of simple ideas (like going on forever with 120
beats per minute...)
