Real Friends - Kanye West



Speed: 86 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm, 85 bpm to 90 bpm

The DJ's Take: With a new album on the way, this is getting a lot of buzz, so certainly worth a spin when the mood is right. If you're staying key-compatible, here are some of my mix & mashup picks in the 80 to 85 bpm range:

Back Up - DeJ Loaf ft. Big Sean
Play No Games - Big Sean
Just Kickin' It - Xscape
Always Be My Baby - Mariah Carey
Down and Out - Cam'ron
Cheers (Drink To That) - Rihanna
We Go Down - Krewella

If you're going up toward 90, this could sound interesting with Africa - Toto, Drop It Like It's Hot - Snoop Dogg, It Girl - Jason Derulo, and In Da Club - 50 Cent.

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
