Umbrella - Rihanna



tempo: 87 bpm

bpm range: 85 to 90 bpm

the dj's take: Song #6 in episode #65 of our mix show (12:48):



Ready-made mix / mashup with Do Ya Thang, to the point where you're sure a central idea spawned two similar tracks - guess that makes me a music conspiracy theorist. And the transition into Aston Martin Music is so smooth that when the overlap ends, the drop into the Chrisette Michele vocals can be a little jarring. Had a hankering to sneak Umbrella into a mix in a proper context for awhile now; mission accomplished.

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
