The BMC Top 5 for March 2011














No major surprises this past month:


BMC Top 5 Singles for March 2011:

1. Black and Yellow - Wiz Khalifa

2. Firework - Katy Perry

3. No Hands - Waka Flocka

4. Just Can't Get Enough - Black Eyed Peas

5. Just The Way You Are - Bruno Mars


Top 5 BPMs for March 2011:

1. 90 bpm

2. 125 bpm

3. 130 bpm

4. 120 bpm

5. 100 bpm

Once again, Black and Yellow's our dominant single. What's interesting is that 90 bpm was the top beats per minute for the month. Maybe it's the fact that Just Can't Get Enough starts around that 90-95 bpm range. Or maybe people are looking for a little variety with all the dance tracks out there these days. In any case, I'm thinking maybe we'll see some more 70 to 75 bpm songs in there in the near future. Stay tuned.

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 .
