Paranoid - Post Malone



tempo: 80 bpm

bpm range: 75 bpm to 80 bpm80 bpm to 85 bpm

the dj's take: Track #3 in Episode 38 (4:15):



In my power rankings of songs called Paranoid, this one is #2. I put it in front of Ty Dolla $ign, but well behind Black Sabbath. If you have any thoughts, @me and set the record straight.

On the more 'technical' side, that subtle whistle-like effect in the chorus leads pretty smoothly into the intro for Jason Derulo's Wiggle. Worth a try on a pop night or mixtape.

Some key-compatible music:


If you're staying in the high 70s to low 80s in terms of bpm, this sounds pretty good with Travis Scott's HIGHEST IN THE ROOM.

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
