dj mix/mashup: Flowers Out of Touch (Miley Cyrus, Hall & Oates, Justin Timberlake, Camila Cabello & Shawn Mendes, Post Malone)

Made with Logic Pro at 118 bpm Flowers - Miley Cyrus Out of Touch - Hall & Oates Sexyback - Justin Timberlake, Timbaland Señorita - Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes Circles - Post Malone Fun little medley on top of a popular song; feels like going to a clothing store and trying on different pairs of pants. My favorites: Señorita and Out of Touch, with a slight edge to Señorita. I actually started this by stacking several songs on top of each other in Logic Pro, then muting/soloing certain tracks to decide what to use. More efficient than what I've been doing recently - may stick with it for the foreseeable future. Key- and bpm-compatible playlist: 115 to 120 bpm

Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53 - Bizarrap, Shakira

tempo: 122 bpm the DJ's take: Would've been nice if this little ditty had a name, but it is what it is. Clean, full and straighforward - probably sounds pretty good through a big set of speakers. For remix/mashup purposes, I'd probably loop the section from 0:07-0:15. Definitely some California Gurls vibes; could also sound interesting with Alive - Empire of the Sun , Hung Up - Madonna , and Lost - Frank Ocean . Also kind of similar to Felix Jaehn's Book of Love with the drum-less female vocal intros. More key- and tempo-compatible options here . download or stream Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53: amazon

Flowers - Miley Cyrus

tempo: 118 bpm the DJ's take: Strong future as a go-to karaoke song for early twenty-something women. This one reminds me of the first half of Lovefool by The Cardigans , only a bit faster and more disco-oriented. Take the instrumental-only first four seconds of Lovefool, speed it up to about 115-116 bpm, lay it over Flowers, and that could be the start of something interesting. Try mixing with some of the singles in this playlist and see what you can come up with. download or stream Flowers: amazon

dj mix/mashup: STAY heartless (Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Rick Ross)

Made with Logic Pro at 85 bpm STAY - The Kid Laroi, Justin Bieber Guess Who's Back - Scarface, Jay-Z, Beanie Sigel Heartless - Kanye West Aston Martin Music - Rick Ross, Chrisette Michelle I Like Dat - T-Pain, Kehlani In terms of matching tones note-for-note with multiple songs, this is one of my better efforts. The drum-less intro to STAY is the constant, and we stacked / subtracted layers as we went along. The hardest part of making these mashups / mini-mixes is having a lot of ideas, trying them out in the software, and ultimately realizing the best thing to do is keep it simple. Maybe we can build this into something bigger in the future. Key- and bpm-compatible playlist: 85 to 90 bpm

dj mix clip: wonderful pony (ginuwine, travis scott, the weeknd)

Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm My favorite part of this little clip - when you hear the string of low-pitched 'yeah's in Pony, and then travis scott chimes in at the end with a little 'yeah' of his own. Always fun when you can make the lyrics/vocals from two different songs line up into something interesting. Further confirmation that Pony can fit in with just about anything on this playlist .

dj mix clip: creep ...baby one more time (tlc, britney spears)

Made with Logic Pro at 93 bpm I'm sure someone somewhere has mixed these two together. And with good reason - it's a no-brainer to stack two throwback classics that even the young people recognize. The drums for Creep can be a little tricky to beatmatch perfectly, so you can see I did a little surgery in certain spots. Sounds good in the end, and I highly recommend you try this in your next 90s mix. Listen to the full episode here: mix #78
