dj mix/mashup: Someone To Pour It Up (Aaliyah, Mariah Carey, Jon B. ft. Babyface, Rihanna)

Made with Logic Pro at 65 bpm Overall, we took a few songs from this playlist and this playlist , and had them meet in the middle at 65 bpm. I could listen to the chorus for Someone to Love on repeat, which basically sums up the entire second half of this mix. And a quick note - that zooming sound at 1:24 in the leadup to Someone to Love is called "Descending Below" in Logic Pro. Pretty good for transitions, and loud enough that you don't have to jack up the volume over your mix.

dj mix/mashup: Levels N 2 Deep (Avicii, Drake, SZA, Shawn Mendes)

Made with Logic Pro at 125 bpm Another project with origins in an old mix . We added in a couple extra songs from the original loop, and to make the transitions a little less abrupt, I put in some sound effects ("Boomerang Downer" and "Airfield" as software instruments in Logic Pro, in case you were wondering). Individual software instruments can get drowned out by finished audio tracks side-by-side, but things worked out in this one.

dj mix/mashup: I'm Ready For Your Beautiful Flames (ft. Ed Sheeran, Sia and David Guetta)

Made with Logic Pro at 93 bpm Inspiration for this one came from re-visiting a transition in an old mix - sounded interesting, added a couple songs from this playlist , and it came together pretty quickly. Call me biased, but without DJ Cheat Sheet , I'd have a harder time getting anything going at all.

Logic Pro Tutorial: Using Musical Grid to Cut Song Clips with Precision

Interesting mix of two songs, but I couldn't find a new direction beyond the initial loop, so we turned it into a tutorial. Nothing fancy, and maybe not the most efficient methods, but this is a good demo of how I start a mix or mashup. And maybe you'll see something you can use in the future. Featured songs: Power - Kanye West + Sunshine - Ant Beale, Charlie Heat
