Pump Up the Jam - Technotronic



tempo: 125 bpm

bpm range: 120 to 125 bpm125 to 130 bpm

the DJ’s take: If you play 80s music on any given night, this will either get people moving, get them laughing, or both. And neither of those reactions is a bad thing. There are a million YouTube videos of people getting down to it, so you know there's some staying power.

On a side note, is there any better time to blast this than during a Nancy Kerrigan & Chris Farley Olympic figure skating routine? I highly doubt it:



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

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: roxanne loves cheap thrills (ft. Harry Styles' As It Was x a-ha's Take On Me)

Made with Logic Pro at 86 bpm Quick note on what I did with Harry Styles' As It Was - the original plan was to use that 10 note drum-less synth intro on a loop. But things got a bit more complicated when I realized the 10th note came with a heavy drum hit. So we did a little surgery, subbed in the same note without the drum, and cut it up to get a decent imitation of what I wanted in the beginning. If you'd like to have a go, Amazon download links are below. Or feel free to do something totally different with the songs in the relevant DJ Cheat Sheet playlist .
