Live While We're Young - One Direction



Speed: 126 bpm

The DJ's Take: As a 30+ year old male, I possess a general immunity to One Direction. That said, this is another slickly produced single that younger females will love. Sounds a lot like that Starships track though, doesn't it? Anyway, try turning on key adjust and mixing with the following:

Gangnam Style - PSY, Starships - Nicki Minaj, Without You - David Guetta ft. Usher, Mr. Saxobeat - Alexandra Stan, Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5, Who's That Chick - David Guetta ft. Rihanna, Yeah 3X - Chris Brown, Only Girl in the World - Rihanna, Sexy Bitch - Akon, One More Time - Daft Punk, Meet Me Halfway - Black Eyed Peas, Down - Jay Sean, Disturbia, Hotel Room Service - Pitbull, Day N Nite - Kid Cudi (Crookers Remix)

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 .
