How Do You Sleep? - Sam Smith



tempo: 83 bpm

bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm

the dj's take: In response to the title of this song, it depends. Sometimes I lie on my side, sometimes on my stomach, usually watching videos on the laptop until my eyelids get heavy. Tend to wake up in the middle of the night, then do something for an hour or two until I'm sleepy again. Dreams come along once in awhile, but they're never bad - most revolve around being able to fly.

As for the track, definitely worth a spin on a pop night. Or at a pride parade.

Try mixing with:

Cheers (Drink To That) - Rihanna
Location - Khalid
Krippy Kush - Farruko, Bad Bunny, Rvssian
Holy Key - DJ Khaled
Exchange - Bryson Tiller
Back Up - DeJ Loaf ft. Big Sean
Play No Games - Big Sean

One Dance - Drake ft. Wizkid & Kyla



tempo: 104 bpm

bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #3 in our Formula 15 mix (3:13):



And song #2 in version 31 (2:38):



Couldn't find a legit video for the song, so I embedded the live performance from SNL. Props to Drake - voice is wavering a bit, which proves he's definitely not pulling an Ashlee Simpson:



Anyway, we all know how big this was when it came out. Should have a solid shelf life in the years to come.

Try mixing with:

Me Rehúso - Danny Ocean
thank u, next - Ariana Grande
Questions - Chris Brown
My My My! - Troye Sivan
For Free - DJ Khaled ft. Drake
Let's Talk About Sex - Salt N Pepa
Colors - Halsey
Piece By Piece - Kelly Clarkson
Lose Yourself To Dance - Daft Punk

dj mix: Chapter 32 (ft. Britney Spears, Destiny's Child & Justin Timberlake)



Shorter youtube version of 32XL; wanted to get something up without having it taken down. Note the trippy thumbnail; I added in some effects for each transition. Call me the Korean Stephen Spielberg.

Made with Logic Pro X at 72 bpm (last song goes up to 75)

Check out some more mixes here.

Tracklist (start times in parentheses):

1. Blood On The Money - Future

2. RGF Island - Fetty Wap (2:40)

3. Low Life - Future ft. The Weeknd (4:27)

4. Say My Name - Destiny's Child (8:14)

5. Draped Up - Bun B (10:53)

6. Toxic - Britney Spears (13:34)

Antisocial - Ed Sheeran & Travis Scott



tempo: 76 bpm

bpm range: 75 bpm to 80 bpm

the dj's take: After seeing that bee sting Ed Sheeran in the eye, 'wanking fuckballs' will be in the rotation next time I stub my toe on something. Also, when he kept saying 'don't touch me,' the amateur medicine man in me made the official diagnosis via google - haphephobia.

Worth a spin on a pop or hiphop night. Beat is heavy like a double IPA.

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas
Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley

Goodbyes - Post Malone ft. Young Thug



tempo: 75 bpm

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

the dj's take: Random observation - the intro to this song (starting around 1:06 in the video) reminds me of the opening notes to George Michael's One More Try:


Anyway, feels like a hit that needs to go in your pop rotation a.s.a.p. Might be fun to drop in
All I Do Is Win if you're swinging for the fences.

halfmashup: my draped up toxic mirrors



Tried to fit all the song titles into the name - not easy. A little different; goes hard at the beginning (Houston is well-represented), and then some sunshine and rainbows at the end. Gives you a decent idea of what you can do with these tracks.

halfmashup: Say My Toxic Name



Two of the great chick tracks in modern party history - I'm willing to bet that plenty of females up to the age of 40 will know the words. If you're spinning a set with music from ~2000, these are pretty handy to have.
