Run Up - Major Lazer ft. PARTYNEXTDOOR, Nicki Minaj



tempo: 108 bpm

bpm range: 105 to 110 bpm

the DJ's take: Reminds me of Kevin Lyttle's Turn Me On. About as dancefloor-friendly as you can get, which makes it worth a spin in the new music portion of a pop set. Some key-compatible hits worth mixing with:

Are You Sure? - Kriss Kross Amsterdam & Connor Maynard ft. Ty Dolla $ign
Be Alright - Ariana Grande
Wild Things - Alessia Cara
The Monster - Eminem ft. Rihanna
Something In The Way You Move - Ellie Goulding
Cruel Summer - Bananarama
Mo Money Mo Problems - Notorious BIG
Ain't It Fun - Paramore

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
