The BMC Top 5 for May 2012

#1 stays the same, but there was some turnover from April lower down the list:

BMC Top 5 Singles for May 2012:

1. Levels - Avicii

2. Wild Ones - Flo Rida ft. Sia

3. Climax - Usher

4. Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

5. Where Have You Been - Rihanna

Top 5 BPMs for May 2012:

1. 130 bpm

2. 125 bpm

3. 120 bpm

4. 100 bpm

5. 135 bpm

Couple notes to mention. First, we did have a distinct #1 and #2 in terms of singles, but it was a photo finish. And based on my own observations at local bars (haven't been to a club in awhile), pop EDM is still king by a wide margin. What else is new.

Got your own ideas about what should be in the Top 5? Leave a comment.

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 .
