Runaway - Kanye West ft. Pusha T

tempo: 88 bpm

bpm range: 85 bpm to 90 bpm

the DJ’s take: Kind of sounds like a kid's piano lesson with some percussion. I probably wouldn't play this during a pop gig, but considering the initial buzz it generated (and the fact it's Kanye), somebody might recognize it.

Some key-compatible tracks between 85 and 90 bpm:

Real Friends - Kanye West
Die A Happy Man - Nelly
We Go Down - Krewella

And from 90 to 95 bpm:

In Da Club - 50 Cent
It Girl - Jason Derulo
Drop It Like It's Hot - Snoop Dogg
Africa - Toto
Say Aah - Trey Songz
Rollin - Calvin Harris, Future, Khalid
Bloodstream - The Chainsmokers
Boom Clap - Charli XCX
Addiction - Ryan Leslie ft. Fabolous
I Got To Have It - Ed OG

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

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 .
