Fireball - Pitbull ft. John Ryan



Speed: 123 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 120 to 125 bpm, 125 to 130 bpm

The DJ's Take: Wouldn't this be the perfect theme song for a Fireball Whisky tv ad? On a side note, interesting how popular that beverage has become - just goes to show how you can take something strong, flavor it like candy, and your consumers will explode across genders and demographics. Anyway, regarding the song, I'll give this a 40/60 chance of becoming a moderate hit. Regardless, it's new Pitbull, so worth a spin.

If you're mixing around 120 bpm and want to stay key-compatible, try blending with tracks like Waves - Mr. ProbzLatch - DisclosureTelephoneSay It RightSonnentanz and/or Marilyn Monroe - Pharrell.

If you're mixing in the 125 to 130 bpm range, try blending with tracks like Now That I've Found You - Martin Garrix, I'll House You (VIP Mix) - Don Diablo ft. Jungle Brothers, Virus (How About Now) - Martin Garrix ft. MOTi, Strong - R3HAB and KSHMR, What Do You Mean? - Justin Bieber, Wildest Dreams (R3hab Remix) - Taylor Swift, Disarm You - Kaskade, One Last Time - Ariana Grande, Time of Our Lives - Pitbull and NeYo, Open Wide - Calvin HarrisFlashlight - R3hab & Deorro#SELFIE - The ChainsmokersCannonball (Earthquake) - Showtek & Justin Prime 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 .
