Hit the Quan - @iHeartMemphis



Speed: 80 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm

The DJ's Take: I have a great idea for a reality TV show - take all the video clips of kids dancing to songs like this and show it to them in about 10 to 15 years (so for older generations, we're probably digging into the VHS archives). The embarrassment and looks of horror will make it a must-watch.

That said, with high schools and colleges opening up soon, you probably want to have this fad track on hand for potential requests. Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like All Eyes On You - Meek Mill ft. Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown, Live Your Life - T.I. ft Rihanna, I'm On One - DJ Khaled, and Miss Me - Drake near the 80 bpm range, and Paper Planes - MIA, Royals - Lorde, and The Man - Aloe Blacc if you're closer to 85.

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 .
