Top 5 BPMs for January 2011:

1. 125 bpm

3. 120 bpm

Like Roger Federer at the 2009 Australian Open, this past month’s #1 is killing me. As a New England Patriots fan, it’s tough to watch the Steelers make the Super Bowl, then realize that Black and Yellow is #1 on my own blog. But it’s ok - I like the song, even if it’s overplayed, and it’s good to see that real rap still has a place in the hearts of the people.

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 .
