Throwback Track: Push It - Salt N Pepa



Speed: 130 bpm

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

The DJ’s Take: If there’s one song out there that makes people literally “dance like no one’s watching” at weddings and clubs, this just might be it. And that’s exactly why you need to have this in your music library. Push It to bad dancers is like a midriff-bearing halter top to BBWs with tramp stamps - they can’t resist the call, even if it kills the rest of us.

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 .
