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

DJ mix: session 76 ft. Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill

Made with Logic Pro at 113 bpm 17:50 of 80s and pop music (with a little hiphop) Check out some more mixes here . This episode was made using this playlist . Tracklist (start times in parentheses): 1. Crazy - Gnarls Barkley 2. Running Up That Hill - Kate Bush (2:35) 3. Rock Steady - The Whispers (4:34) 4. Because of You - Ne-Yo (6:56) 5.

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
