Finesse - Bruno Mars



tempo: 105 bpm

bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm, 105 to 110 bpm

The DJ's Take: Put Bobby Brown on the track and I wouldn't bat an eyelash. Pretty accurate early 90s throwback vibe, and worth a spin in the earlier part of a Top 40 set. Video for the remix needed a cameo from Jamie Foxx (or even Jim Carrey) and J. Lo. Cardi B provides a little Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes vibe.

If you're staying key-compatible in the 100 to 105 bpm range, try mixing with:

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
