Old Thing Back - Matoma & Notorious BIG ft. Ja Rule & Ralph Tresvant



Speed: 97 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm

The DJ's Take: Of course you recognize the voice, but if you didn't recognize the lyrics, that's because they're from the original version of One More Chance (not its more popular remix). Much heavier, darker instrumental, so I like hearing these rhymes over something brighter. Definitely worth a spin on a hiphop night, and it should work in general, assuming your crowd doesn't mind the explicitness.

Try mixing with tracks like Back To Sleep - Chris Brown, One More Chance (Remix) - Notorious BIG, Shoop - Salt N Pepa, Out of the Woods - Taylor Swift, This Is How We Do - Katy Perry, Na Na - Trey Songz, Paranoid - Ty Dolla $ign, and No Games - Serani. You could also double-time over I'll Show You - Justin Bieber.

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
