I'm Upset - Drake



tempo: 75 bpm

bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm75 bpm to 80 bpm

the dj's take: Song #11 in our #55 mix (22:38):




If Drake thinks he's upset, he should see this kid:



If this was staged, he deserves an Academy Award. And if it was real, even more impressive. Either way, one of the rawest performances you'll ever witness in any medium. Bravo.

Money Trees - Kendrick Lamar ft. Jay Rock



tempo: 72 bpm

bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm

the dj's take: Song #2 in our #55 mix (1:55):



Is it just me, or does the key feel a little different in headphones when it goes into Kid Cudi's Day 'N' Nite? Sounds more compatible in speakers. Either way, a solid choice for a slower hiphop set. Like a dark molasses that seeps into your bones.

Crockett's Theme (Miami Vice) - Jan Hammer



tempo: 95-96 bpm

The DJ's Take: Final song in our chapter 53 mix (20:04):



One of the coolest TV themes of the 80s, and you can't tell me otherwise. Version on amazon/itunes sounds a little different from the video, but close enough. Pairs nicely with Kids See Ghosts; like it's emerging from the mist. On a side note, I've been lucky enough to have access to a motor boat this summer/fall, and Crockett's Theme was playing in my head as I was Miami Vicing it through the ocean:
