OPP - Naughty By Nature



tempo: 98 bpm

bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm

the DJ’s take: My 6th grade class voted this as their favorite song back in 1992 in our middle school yearbook, which is a high honor indeed. Add in the Jackson 5 sample and you got a feel-good track that exemplifies the fun vibe rap and hiphop in general had back in the 90s. This is a classic, so show it some respect with a spot in your playlist or throwback hiphop set.

If you're mixing around 98 to 99 bpm, try going into Do What U Want - Lady Gaga.

If you're spinning from 100 to 103 bpm, try blending with:

Galway Girl - Ed Sheeran
Picture Me Rollin' - Chris Brown
Alive - Sia
2 On - Tinashe
Talk Dirty - Jason Derulo
Hold On, We're Going Home - Drake
What's My Name - Rihanna
Scenario - A Tribe Called Quest
Most Girls - Hailee Steinfeld

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 .
