Gold Digger - Kanye West ft. Jamie Foxx



tempo: 92 bpm

bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

the DJ’s take: Let's go back in time to 2005 - I am dj’ing 3 nights a week in a bar down south. No joke: there were glow-in-the-dark NASCAR murals on the walls. And I got at least 5 requests for this every night - it was like being a parent with a kid who couldn't get enough of the soundtrack to Frozen. Easily the biggest hit of that year, regardless of where you were in the US, and it should still get people moving.

Strong list of key-compatible hits to mix / mash up with:

Work - Rihanna ft. Drake
Escápate Conmigo - Wisin ft. Ozuna
Faith - George Michael
Don't You Need Somebody - RedOne
Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Lean Back - Terror Squad, Fat Joe & Remy
Hey Daddy (Daddy's Home) [feat. Plies] - Usher
Winner - Jamie Foxx
Try Again - Aaliyah

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 .
