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.
