You Da Baddest - Future, Nicki Minaj



tempo: 77 bpm

bpm range: 75 bpm to 80 bpm

the dj's take: Quite a bounce in that beat. Pretty sure this will be in the rotation at Magic City in the coming weeks. Inspirational in its own way, like You're The Best Around for rappers' girlfriends:



Taking a page from the We Rate Dogs twitter account, I give it a 13/10. Would definitely spin on a hiphop night.

If you're going key-compatible around 74-75 bpm, try mixing with:

Sorry Not Sorry - Demi Lovato

And from 75 to 80 bpm:

All Eyes On You - Meek Mill ft. Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown
Live Your Life - T.I. ft Rihanna
I'm On One - DJ Khaled
Miss Me - Drake

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 .
