Down - Jay Sean ft. Lil Wayne



tempo: 132 bpm

bpm range: 130 to 135 bpm

the DJ’s take: If Jay Sean is a one-hit wonder (my guess is yes), this is a nice way to make a debut - and to go out. Most memorable line for me is when Lil Wayne says 'I'm down like the economy.' So it's not exactly a new single, considering the reference. Which makes Down a worthy addition to the throwback playlist.

If you're in the 127 to 129 bpm range, try mixing with:

PYT - Michael Jackson
Break Through The Silence - Martin Garrix, Matisse & Sadko
Children - Justin Bieber
Beautiful Now - Zedd
Together - Calvin Harris
Don't You Worry Child - Swedish House Mafia
Without You - David Guetta ft. Usher
Mr. Saxobeat - Alexandra Stan
Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5
Who's That Chick - David Guetta ft. Rihanna

And if you're at 130+:

Meet Me Halfway - Black Eyed Peas
Sexy Bitch - Akon
Yeah 3X - Chris Brown
Sun Is Shining - Axwell ^ Ingrosso
Gangnam Style - PSY

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 .
