Woman - Kesha ft. The Dap-Kings



tempo: 115 bpm

bpm range: 110 to 115 bpm115 to 120 bpm

the dj's take: Nice to see the Dap-Kings getting some pub on a higher-profile single. I remember listening to their album Dap-Dippin awhile back and feeling like a hiphop beat maker could have a field day with it. Has a throwback vibe that a mainstream crowd might appreciate, sort of like Uptown Funk.

One mix idea for the dj's - try leading in with I Wanna Dance With Somebody - Whitney Houston, and when the key changes, go into this track and follow up with:

Paparazzi - Lady Gaga
Dirty Mind - Flo Rida
Waves - Mr. Probz (Robin Schulz Remix)
Say It Right - Nelly Furtado
Sonnentanz - Klangkarussell ft. Will Heard
Marilyn Monroe - Pharrell

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 .
