Music Review: Cooler Than Me - Mike Posner



Speed: 131 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm, 130 to 135 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Sure, this is just one of many new mainstream EDM tracks, but it’s more suited for strutting than fist-pumping. I rag on a lot of today’s pop music, but this is catchy, and I’ve been spinning it for the past few weekends. Now that it’s cracked the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, more of your crowd may recognize it, so press play and see what happens.

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 .
