Please Don't Go - Mike Posner



tempo: 120 bpm

bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm120 to 125 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Calm and serene, and has a funky keyboard that reminds me of the one Stevie Wonder uses in Boogie On Reggae Woman. Plus, it starts to flutter later on in the song, which makes you feel like you’re playing Centipede:



A former Top 20 hit that should add a little futuristic flavor as a throwback in a pop mix.

Some key-compatible tracks to mix / mash up with from 115 to 119 bpm:

Freedom - Pitbull
Hold Up, Wait A Minute - ZHU
Cake By The Ocean - DNCE
Take Your Time (Do It Right) by The S.O.S. Band

And from 120 to 125:

Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke ft. Pharrell
My Way - Calvin Harris
Good Girls Lie - Akon
How Deep is Your Love - Calvin Harris + Disciples
Talking Body - Tove Lo
She Came To Give It To You - Usher
Ghost Town - Adam Lambert
Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

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

4th of July (Fireworks) - Kelis

tempo: 124 bpm the DJ's take: In terms of energy and key/note progression, I feel like this one could go well with Ne-Yo's Let's Go , Bingo Players' Cry Just A Little , Flo Rida's I Cry , and maybe the Day N Nite - Crookers Remix . Fast and danceable, with a buzzy, hypnotic bass. Definitely worth a spin in a poolside dance mix. download or stream 4th of July (Fireworks): amazon dj cheat sheet playlist
