Throwback Thursday: Forgot About Dre - Dr. Dre ft. Eminem



Speed: 67 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 65 bpm to 70 bpm

The DJ's Take: Classic beat off a classic album. Even though most of your crowd was probably in elementary school when this came out, there's a timelessness that still gets heads nodding. Deserves a permanent spot in your hiphop playlist.

Try mixing with tracks like Often - The Weeknd, GDFR - Flo Rida, Inside Out - The Chainsmokers, Private Show - TI ft. Chris Brown, and Rap God - Eminem or half-timing into Cupid Shuffle - Cupid or Applause - Lady Gaga.

Drop a couple bpm's and you could even half-time into tracks like:

Ghost - Oliver Heldens ft. RUMORS
Lift Me Up - David Guetta
Whip It! - LunchMoney Lewis
Sweet Lovin' - Sigala
Won't Stop Rocking - R3hab & Headhunterz
Heaven - Shaun Frank & KSHMR
Poison - Martin Garrix
Love Myself - Hailee Steinfeld
Break Free - Ariana Grande ft. Zedd
Five More Hours - Deorro x Chris Brown
Five Hours - Deorro
Don't Wake Me Up - Chris Brown
Born To Get Wild - Steve Aoki ft. will.i.am
Hideaway - Kiesza
Kanye - The Chainsmokers
Red Lights - Tiesto
Helicopter - Martin Garrix & Firebeatz
Samurai (Go Hard) - R3hab
Love Me Again - John Newman
Wizard - Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway
Revolution - R3hab & Nervo & Ummet Ozcan
Scream & Shout - will.i.am and Britney Spears
Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO
Count On Me - Chase & Status
Scream - Usher, Hey Brother - Avicii
Glad You Came - The Wanted

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.
