Talk Dirty - Jason Derulo ft. 2 Chainz



Speed: 100 bpm

The DJ's Take: Not a big fan of this. Those horns are a little much, and even though I generally don't listen to lyrics, the songwriting and rapping made me cringe a bit. That said, Talk Dirty is the #1 single in the UK according to Billboard. And I could see this being danceable in the right situation. If you're looking to get extra corny (while staying key-compatible), try mixing with something like 50 Cent's Candy Shop.

Editor's Note: Yes, I was a bit off on this one - more key-compatible mix recommendations: Do What U Want - Lady Gaga, Hold On, We're Going Home - Drake, What's My Name - Rihanna, Find Your Love - Drake, and 2 On - Tinashe ft. SchoolBoy Q.

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 .
