Let Me Love You - Ne-Yo



Speed: 125 bpm

The DJ's Take: Picture this - you're watching Step Up 7: The Concrete Jungle (Ed. note - not that much of a stretch; apparently we're already at Step Up 4). The female lead character has overcome a rough upbringing, self-confidence issues brought on by an abusive relationship, condescending peers, and so much more to land a big audition at Juilliard's contemporary dance program (I assume they have one). For her final number, with her new love interest in the audience, she comes out to this song and gives the performance of her life. Amazing.

Seriously though, I could see this rising a bit more in the charts - it has a youthful, inspirational feel to it. Turn on key adjust and mix with tracks like Part of Me, I Wanna Go, and California Gurls, and you may be on to something.

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 .
