Let Me Go - Hailee Steinfeld, Alesso, Florida Georgia Line, watt



tempo: 103 bpm

bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm

the dj's take: The final song in our Session 11 mix (21:01):



This track is like Neopolitan ice cream - a mix of pop, electro-trop, and country. A pleasant, bouncy listen that would fit right in during a road trip or in a Miami hotel lobby.

Cute video too, but here's my alternative version (with some real people who want to be let go):

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 .
