A Sky Full Of Stars - Coldplay



Speed: 125 bpm

The DJ's Take: One good thing about reading YouTube comments - I learned this was produced by Avicii. Not sure if it's really danceable; feels more like something you'd go adventuring to. Still, given the big names involved, I'm guessing this'll get some love on the charts and on the radio. In fact, as I'm typing this, A Sky Full Of Stars is #1 on iTunes, so certainly worth a download (even if it's for your own personal playlist).

To stay key-compatible, try mixing with some or all of the following: You Make Me - Avicii, On The Floor - Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull,Give It 2 U - Robin Thicke, Live For The Night - Krewella, Don't Stop The Party - Pitbull, Right Now - Rihanna and David Guetta, We Found Love - Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris, S&M - Rihanna, Bulletproof - La Roux, Low (feat. T-Pain) - Flo Rida, Calabria 2007 - Enur

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
