Chained To The Rhythm - Katy Perry ft. Skip Marley



tempo: 95 bpm

bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm95 to 100 bpm

the DJ's take: Still trying to figure out whether the beat feels more like an 80s montage or something Caribbean. Then again, it's 'featuring Skip Marley,' so probably the latter, right? Anyway, this is her first single in awhile, so expect to get at least a little mileage out of it. Try mixing with key-compatible tracks like:

Cold - Maroon 5 ft. Future
Daddy Yo - WizKid
Hello Friday - Flo Rida ft. Jason Derulo
Old Thing Back - Matoma & Notorious BIG ft. Ja Rule & Ralph Tresvant
This Is How We Do - Katy Perry
Shoop - Salt N Pepa
Na Na - Trey Songz
Paranoid - Ty Dolla $ign

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/mashup: no can do because of you (ft. Hall & Oates and Ne-Yo)

Made with Logic Pro at 113 bpm A quick clip from the last mix , and one of my favorite transitions in it. Kind of alluring, mysterious; maybe we can make a more fully realized remix/mashup someday. If you're wondering what the image is in the background at the start of the video, those are quahogs and a channeled whelk I dug out of the sand in low tide on a recent beach trip. Pretty solid haul, and good eating for sure. Although I probably should've kept them separate - apparently whelks like to eat the clams .
