Throwback Thursday: Boom Boom Pow! - Black Eyed Peas



Speed: 130 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm, 130 to 135 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Once upon a time, this was the #1 song in the country. I spun it a lot. And at this point, throwback status has officially been conferred. Don't be shocked if Boom Boom Pow gets the amateur b-boys' competitive juices flowing. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with:

dj mix/mashup: do you think of me [mariah carey] x always forever [bryson tiller]

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com

4th of July (Fireworks) - Kelis

tempo: 124 bpm the DJ's take: In terms of energy and key/note progression, I feel like this one could go well with Ne-Yo's Let's Go , Bingo Players' Cry Just A Little , Flo Rida's I Cry , and maybe the Day N Nite - Crookers Remix . Fast and danceable, with a buzzy, hypnotic bass. Definitely worth a spin in a poolside dance mix. download or stream 4th of July (Fireworks): amazon dj cheat sheet playlist
