Booyah - Showtek ft. We Are Loud & Sonny Wilson


Speed: 128 bpm

The DJ's Take: Good lord - if you're trying to start a riot, get this in your rotation as soon as possible. Think of Booyah as a well-timed uppercut; build your crowd up, find the right opening, and finish them off in spectacular fashion with the booming beat and supercharged vuvuzelas. A certified sonic weapon of mass destruction.

The catch - unfortunately, this only seems to be available in the UK. Will try to post a download link for the US when/if it's up.

If you're looking for the closest set of songs key-wise, here are a few I recommend:

You Make Me - Avicii, On The Floor - Jennifer Lopez ft. PitbullGive It 2 U - Robin ThickeLive For The Night - KrewellaDon't Stop The Party - PitbullRight Now - Rihanna and David Guetta, We Found Love - Rihanna ft.

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 .
