Things Can Only Get Better - Cedric Gervais & Howard Jones



Speed: 128 bpm

The DJ's Take: I can only imagine what it would be like to have this blasting on your radio with the top down as you roll down the Autobahn. Probably not something to spin at a Top 40 gig (unless you feel like throwing the crowd a change up), but should generate energy in a room full of EDM fans. Try mixing with some of the following to stay key-compatible:

Wake Me Up - Avicii, Don't You Worry Child - Swedish House Mafia, P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing), 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, 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 .
