I’m In Miami Bitch - LMFAO



tempo: 129 bpm

bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm

the DJ’s take: Possibly the dumbest song of all time. And yet it was a hit at one point, and when you've had a few too many, this one hits the spot. Like Jack In The Box tacos. A perfect encapsulation of late 2000s pop culture - reality tv, YOLO, and the meteoric rise of pop edm.

Forgotten tidbit - apparently there were versions of this song for different cities (e.g. Las Vegas, LA, and even Milwaukee). Customizable merchandising at its finest. Reminds me of those t-shirts that say 'I [fill-in-the-blank] and all I got was this lousy t-shirt':

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 .
