Misery - Gwen Stefani



Speed: 95 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm, 95 to 100 bpm

The DJ's Take: If we're ranking pop songs named 'Misery' in a similar key performed by judges from The Voice, I'll give Adam Levine the edge; a little more energy and juice. But this one is certainly spinnable in the new music portion of a set, and it's getting some love on iTunes. Now we'll just wait for someone to do a mashup with Company - Justin Bieber and call it 'Misery Loves Company.'

If you're at around 90 bpm, try mixing with key-compatible tracks like:

YOUTH - Troye Sivan
0 To 100 - Drake
Bailando - Enrique Iglesias
Partition - Beyoncé
Killing Me Softly - Fugees

If you're working in the 95 bpm range, consider going with:

Show Me - Kid Ink
Partition - Beyoncé
Animals - Maroon 5
Survival of the Fittest - Mobb Deep
You And Your Friends - Wiz Khalifa

And at around 100 bpm, I'd try with:

BeFoUr - ZAYN
Team - Iggy Azalea
Don't Need Nobody - Ellie Goulding
This Summer's Gonna Hurt... - Maroon 5
Sledgehammer - Fifth Harmony
L.A. Love (La La) - Fergie
Turn Down For What - DJ Snake and Lil Jon

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: roxanne loves cheap thrills (ft. Harry Styles' As It Was x a-ha's Take On Me)

Made with Logic Pro at 86 bpm Quick note on what I did with Harry Styles' As It Was - the original plan was to use that 10 note drum-less synth intro on a loop. But things got a bit more complicated when I realized the 10th note came with a heavy drum hit. So we did a little surgery, subbed in the same note without the drum, and cut it up to get a decent imitation of what I wanted in the beginning.
