Throwback Thursday: 1999 - Prince



Speed: 119 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm

The DJ's Take: Very rare that I get any kind of a rise when a legend dies. But with MJ and Whitney Houston, we sort of saw it coming, right? Prince seemed more like some alien who would live forever. Anyway, this was a staple of my music collection back when I spun an 80s night. And you're pretty much guaranteed to get requests for 1999 (and just about any other big song he did) this weekend and probably next weekend as well. A must-download.

If you're at around 115 bpm, try mixing with key-compatible tracks like:

Tik Tok - Ke$ha
Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better) - Felix Jaehn ft. Jasmine Thompson
I Don't Like It, I Love It - Flo Rida
Love Never Felt So Good - Michael Jackson
All My Love (Remix) - Major Lazer
Motown Philly - Boyz II Men
Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars

If you're at 120+, try mixing with tracks like:

Nocturnal - Disclosure ft. The Weeknd
Book of Love - Felix Jaehn
New Romantics - Taylor Swift
I Really Like You - Carly Rae Jepsen
Let Me Love You - NeYo

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
