Car Radio - twenty one pilots



Speed: 65 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 60 bpm to 65 bpm, 65 bpm to 70 bpm

The DJ's Take: Is it safe to say that when a song's been out for a couple years, and suddenly jumps to just outside the Top 50 on iTunes, it was probably recently featured on a tv show or ad? No idea if that's the case here, but it's my only explanation. I like the buildup and ultimate peak, but if you're spinning this, consider cutting out before the singer starts screaming.

If you're closer to 70 bpm, try mixing with tracks like:

Remember Me - Chris Brown ft. Tyga
Trap Queen - Fetty Wap
7/11 - Beyoncé
Tuesday - I LOVE MAKONNEN
Bang Bang - Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj
Motivation - Kelly Rowland
Young Forever - Jay-Z
Love In This Club (feat. Young Jeezy) - Usher

If you're in the 60 to 65 bpm range, try blending with No Broken Hearts - Bebe Rexha ft. Nicki Minaj and All Day - Kanye West.

If you need to keep the energy up, try half-timing into 125 to 130 bpm tracks like:

Intoxicated - Martin Solveig ft. GTA
Higher Place - Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ft. NeYo
Shades of Grey - Oliver Heldens & Shaun Frank ft. Delaney Jane
Can't Feel My Face (Martin Garrix Remix) - The Weeknd
Never Leave - DVBBS
Don't Look Down - Martin Garrix ft. Usher
On My Way - Axwell ^ Ingrosso
I Want You To Know - Zedd ft. Selena Gomez
Light Years Away (feat. DBX) - Tiesto
Save the World (Radio Mix) - Swedish House Mafia
Pursuit of Happiness (Extended Steve Aoki Remix) [feat. MGMT & Ratatat] - Kid Cudi
The Days - Avicii
Prayer In C - Lilly Wood & The Prick and Robin Schulz
Lay Me Down - Avicii
Adore You - Miley Cyrus (Cedric Gervais Remix)
Ten Feet Tall - Afrojack
Take Me - Tiesto
We Run The Night - Havana Brown ft. Pitbull
Marry The Night - Lady Gaga
Club Can't Handle Me - Flo Rida
Danza Kuduro - Don Omar
Shut It Down - Pitbull ft. Akon
F*ck You - Ceelo Green
Push It - Salt N Pepa
U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer
Right Round - Flo Rida

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 .
