Hymn For The Weekend - Coldplay



Speed: 90 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 85 bpm to 90 bpm, 90 to 95 bpm

The DJ's Take: How much do you wanna bet they're doing this at the Super Bowl halftime show? I'll go out on a limb and say Beyoncé is delivering a bit of a boost, at least in the short term. Worth a spot in the new music playlist.

If you're in the 85 to 90 bpm range, try mixing or mashing up with key-compatible tracks like:

New Americana - Halsey
Nobody To Love - Sigma
Drankin' Patna - T-Pain
How Many Drinks - Miguel
Part II (On The Run) - Jay-Z ft. Beyoncé
Me and My Broken Heart - Rixton
Obsessed - Mariah Carey

If you're between 90 and 95, try mixing with tracks like:

Sexy Love - Ne-Yo
Used To Love You - Gwen Stefani
The Fix - Nelly ft. Jeremih
Sexual Healing - Marvin Gaye
Fancy - Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX
Creep - TLC
Honey - Mariah Carey
Where The Party At - Jagged Edge
What's Luv - Fat Joe
T.I.'s Ball

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
