Pumped Up Kicks - Foster The People



tempo: 128 bpm

bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm

the DJ's take: If Foster The People ends up as a one-hit wonder, this is a good one to go out on. Chill beat that's perfect for a surfing video.

On a side note, my mom got me a pair of Pumps in sixth grade, and squeezing that little orange basketball on the tongue became a daily ritual. Just trying to be like Dee Brown:

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
