Throwback Track: Candy Rain - Soul For Real



Speed: 94 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

The DJ's Take: Two throwback tracks in a row? Yes; I haven't heard anything new and interesting in awhile, so I'm taking it back to the 90s for a minute. Probably won't win you any popularity contests if you spin Top 40 for Caucasian college kids, but open-minded listeners and those who remember this track (which did hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in '95) will appreciate it.

Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like:

Sit Still, Look Pretty - DayaAgain - Fetty Wap, 679 - Fetty Wap, Style - Taylor Swift, Jealous - Nick Jonas, Diamonds From Sierra Leone - Kanye West, Good Thing (feat. Nick Jonas) - Sage the Gemini, Adorn - Miguel, Diamonds - RihannaShe Ain't You - Chris Brown, Check The Rhime - A Tribe Called Quest

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 .
