How Do You Sleep? - Sam Smith



tempo: 83 bpm

bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm

the dj's take: In response to the title of this song, it depends. Sometimes I lie on my side, sometimes on my stomach, usually watching videos on the laptop until my eyelids get heavy. Tend to wake up in the middle of the night, then do something for an hour or two until I'm sleepy again. Dreams come along once in awhile, but they're never bad - most of them revolve around being able to fly.

As for the track, definitely worth a spin on a pop night. Or at a pride parade.

Try mixing with:

Cheers (Drink To That) - Rihanna
Location - Khalid
Krippy Kush - Farruko, Bad Bunny, Rvssian
Holy Key - DJ Khaled
Exchange - Bryson Tiller
Back Up - DeJ Loaf ft. Big Sean
Play No Games - Big Sean
Just Kickin' It - Xscape
Down and Out - Cam'ron

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
