Cry Me A River - Justin Timberlake

tempo: 74 bpm

bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm

the dj's take: Track #6 in our episode 29 mix (14:16):

Kind of a tough one (for me) to work with. While the percussion in many singles features sharp and compact beats, these drums feel more like footsteps crunching through snow or pebbles / sand; drags out a little more, and sounds somewhat uneven. Maybe it's easier in Serato.

Anyway, had to chop up the transition from Still Tippin' to smooth everything out:

A big hit back in the day that deserves a longer-term spot in the rotation. Sing-along appeal is an 11 out of 10.

Try mixing with:

Sensualidad - Bad Bunny x Prince Royce x J Balvin
2U - David Guetta & Justin Bieber
I Fall Apart - Post Malone
Believer - Major Lazer, Showtek
Everyday - A$AP Rocky ft. Rod Stewart
Whatcha Say - Jason Derulo
Ridin' - Chamillionaire
No Matter What - T.I.
