tempo: 60 bpm, 120 bpm

bpm range: 55 bpm to 60 bpm, 60 bpm to 65 bpm, 115 to 120 bpm, 120 to 125 bpm

the dj's take: I think this should play in every stadium when an opposing player blatantly fakes an injury. Like this:


Or this:


Also good for a spinning class or the treadmill. Slow part for the warmup / cool-down, faster part when it's time to burn rubber.

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
