Music Review: Bust A Move - Young MC



tempo: 118 bpm

bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm

the DJ’s take: I would consider Bust A Move about as essential as it gets whether you’re a dj or the Lord of the Playlist. Yes, it’s corny and played out, but it’s fun, the guitar riff is infectious, the drum break at ~2:43 in the video is sick, and it consistently gets people moving. Plus, Highly recommended.

If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with untitled 08 09.06.2014 - Kendrick Lamar.

Cool interview in Rolling Stone on the 20th anniversary of the song's release in 2009, where the artist reflects on the impact his crossover hit had on hiphop.

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
