Birthday Sex - Jeremih



tempo: 60 bpm

bpm range: 55 bpm to 60 bpm, 60 bpm to 65 bpm

the DJ’s take: One of the big hits of 2009-10, and a solid r&b closer during a pop set. As someone who had a regular gig at the time, there was no better way to tell the crowd 'you don't have to go home, but you can't stay here.' Some key-compatible tracks worth mixing with:

On The Come Up - Mike WiLL Made-It ft. Big Sean
March Madness - Future
Needed Me - Rihanna
2 Phones - Kevin Gates
CoCo - O.T. Genasis
Birthday Sex - Jeremih
Man of the Year - SchoolBoy Q
Loveeeeeee Song - Rihanna ft. Future

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

DJ mix/mashup: no can do because of you (ft. Hall & Oates and Ne-Yo)

Made with Logic Pro at 113 bpm A quick clip from the last mix , and one of my favorite transitions in it. Kind of alluring, mysterious; maybe we can make a more fully realized remix/mashup someday. If you're wondering what the image is in the background at the start of the video, those are quahogs and a channeled whelk I dug out of the sand in low tide on a recent beach trip. Pretty solid haul, and good eating for sure. Although I probably should've kept them separate - apparently whelks like to eat the clams .
