I Really Like You - Carly Rae Jepsen



Speed: 122 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 120 to 125 bpm

The DJ's Take: Carly Rae Jepsen has a unique window of opportunity - she's a one hit wonder, but her one hit was so big that three years later, any new single she puts out will generate buzz. And this is the sound her demographic will like: 80s teen synth pop with a hook young high school females can empathize with and sing along to. Worth a download? I'd hold off for now to see if the initial hype lasts, although record pool dj's should take a flyer with an eye toward prom season.

If you're dialing down toward the 115 bpm range, consider mixing or mashing up with tracks like Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars and Motown Philly - Boyz II Men. Up toward 120 to 125 bpm, consider mixing or mashing up with tracks like Let Me Love You - NeYo and California Gurls - Katy Perry.

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 .
