Know Ya - Ty Dolla $ign ft. Trey Songz



Speed: 68 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 65 bpm to 70 bpm

The DJ's Take: I'm a little confused - is Ty Dolla $ign supposed to be a rapper or a singer? Hmm... let's just call him a ringer. This one feels like something R. Kelly would do; has a nice little bounce to it. Keep in mind there are lengthy portions with talking at the beginning (very reminiscent of the original version of Biggie's One More Chance) and end, so watch for that.

On a side note, some advice to the younger guys out there - if you just started dating a girl and she's making you take it slow, this track represents one potential scenario she's worried about. Or she could just be playing you. So good luck with that.

Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like White Iverson - Post Malone, Gold Bottles - Jeezy, Big Rings - Drake & Future, Where Are Ü Now - Skrillex & Diplo ft. Justin Bieber, Feeling Myself - Nicki Minaj, Lips Are Movin - Meghan TrainorX - Chris BrownCan't Hold Us - Macklemore and Ryan LewisDay N Nite - Kid Cudi, Big Pimpin - Jay-Z, and Feel This Moment - Pitbull.

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
