A Lonely Night - The Weeknd



Speed: 114 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 110 to 115 bpm

The DJ's Take: Smooth, danceable track with legitimate hit potential. The only way this doesn't make its mark is if it's competing with the other singles off the album. One interesting mix / mashup possibility is double-timing over slower songs like Needed Me - Rihanna, March Madness - Future, CoCo - O.T. Genasis, Birthday Sex - Jeremih, Man of the Year - SchoolBoy Q, and Loveeeeeee Song - Rihanna ft. Future.

If you're staying key-compatible at a similar bpm, try bumping up to about 117 and mixing with singles like:

Trust Nobody - Cashmere Cat, Tory Lanez, Selena Gomez
Love Runs Out - OneRepublic
She Doesn't Mind - Sean Paul
DJ Got Us Falling In Love - Usher
Teenage Dream - Katy Perry

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

4th of July (Fireworks) - Kelis

tempo: 124 bpm the DJ's take: In terms of energy and key/note progression, I feel like this one could go well with Ne-Yo's Let's Go , Bingo Players' Cry Just A Little , Flo Rida's I Cry , and maybe the Day N Nite - Crookers Remix . Fast and danceable, with a buzzy, hypnotic bass. Definitely worth a spin in a poolside dance mix. download or stream 4th of July (Fireworks): amazon dj cheat sheet playlist
