It Should Be Easy - Britney Spears ft. will.i.am



Speed: 130 bpm

The DJ's Take: I feel like the title of this song says it all. It should be easy for Britney Spears to make a hit, right? But sometimes people can get in their own way. And in this case, the excessive auto tune makes the track almost brutal to listen to, to the point where will.i.am's voice is easier to recognize than the vocalist's. Otherwise, a nice little beat in a key that reminds me of the 80s remake of You Keep Hangin On. Try mixing with some or all of the following:

Love Me Again - John Newman, Wizard - Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway, Revolution - R3hab & Nervo & Ummet Ozcan, Scream & Shout - will.i.am and Britney Spears, Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO, Count On Me - Chase & Status, Scream - Usher, Hey Brother - Avicii

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

4th of July (Fireworks) - Kelis

tempo: 124 bpm the DJ's take: In terms of energy and key/note progression, I feel like this one could go well with Ne-Yo's Let's Go , Bingo Players' Cry Just A Little , Flo Rida's I Cry , and maybe the Day N Nite - Crookers Remix . Fast and danceable, with a buzzy, hypnotic bass. Definitely worth a spin in a poolside dance mix. download or stream 4th of July (Fireworks): amazon dj cheat sheet playlist
