Beat It - Michael Jackson



tempo: 138 bpm

bpm range: 135 to 140 bpm65 bpm to 70 bpm

the DJ’s take: As a 4 year old rocking Osh Kosh BGosh overalls and a bowl cut, this was the most-played song off my Thriller tape cassette. Add in the Eddie Van Halen guitar solo, and you have one of the sweetest pop-rock collabos ever. Most importantly: the video teaches the youth that when you have a beef with someone, it can be resolved through interpretive dance.

Try mixing or mashing up with key-compatible tracks like:

What If - Kevin Gates
T-Shirt - Migos
Real Chill - Rae Sremmurd ft. Kodak Black
??? (Where) - Ty Dolla $ign
1st Day Out Da Feds - Gucci Mane
Bake Sale - Wiz Khalifa ft. Travis Scott
Kiss Kiss - Chris Brown ft. T-Pain
TKO - Justin Timberlake
Jump Out The Window - Big Sean

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
