I'm not sure what the answer is.... maybe sometimes 'walking step'?
sometimes some slowing of the music.
There probably does have to be some kind of compromise.
I just know that there are some Balls I used to go to, but don't anymore
because the band plays the music so slow that SCD becomes tedious. If you
want to know what I mean by tedious, just slow down Petronella to the point
where it takes 4:50 to play 8X32 and try doing all that pdbing at that
