Party Monster - The Weeknd



Speed: 78 bpm

Recommended bpm range:  75 bpm to 80 bpm

The DJ's Take: I knew I recognized the name Party Monster from somewhere... Would also make a great title for a future biography of a troubled Hollywood star. Like 'Party Monster: The Robert Downey, Jr. Story.'

As for the track itself, sounds like a standard issue beat tailor-made for Future or Wiz Khalifa. A heavy, club-friendly banger that should become a regular part of your rotation. If you don't want to drop the bpm too much, try mixing with Ride - twenty one pilots, Purple Lamborghini - Skrillex & Rick Ross, and Long Time - Ty Dolla $ign.

If you're willing to get into the lower 70's in terms of bpm, consider mixing with Panda - Desiigner and King of Everything - Wiz Khalifa.

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
