Often - The Weeknd



Speed: 67 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 65 bpm to 70 bpm

The DJ's Take: Good grinding music for an urban club setting - have to say, I like it better when his tracks have a little percussion to move to. If you're spinning in the 65 bpm range and want to keep it key-compatible, try blending tracks like Yoga - Janelle MonĂ¡e and Party Girls - Ludacris ft. Wiz Khalifa or half-time into more energetic pop/EDM in the 125 to 130 bpm range like:

Rumors - Oliver Heldens ft. RUMORS, Lift Me Up - David Guetta, Whip It! - LunchMoney Lewis, Sweet Lovin' - Sigala, Won't Stop Rocking - R3hab & Headhunterz, Heaven - Shaun Frank & KSHMR, Poison - Martin Garrix, Love Myself - Hailee Steinfeld, Break Free - Ariana Grande ft. Zedd, Five More Hours - Deorro x Chris Brown, Five Hours - Deorro, Born To Get Wild - Steve Aoki ft. will.i.am, Hideaway - Kiesza, Break Free - Ariana Grande ft. Zedd, Kanye - The Chainsmokers, Red Lights - Tiesto, Helicopter - Martin Garrix & Firebeatz, Samurai (Go Hard) - R3hab, 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, and Hey Brother - Avicii

If you're going into the 70 bpm range, try mixing with GDFR - Flo Rida, Private Show - TI ft. Chris Brown, Rap God - Eminem, and Forgot About Dre - Dr. Dre ft. Eminem or half-time into Cupid Shuffle - Cupid or Applause - Lady Gaga.

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 .
