Through The Wire - Kanye West



tempo: 83 bpm

bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm

the dj's take: Leadoff song in detour 44:



Had to do a little surgery in Logic Pro X for the transition into the next single:


That's kind of the blessing and the curse of technology (as someone who didn't use software until well after I quit dj'ing) - I had a certain way I wanted it to sound, but the music and the beat structure weren't quite cooperating. Worked out in the end, after some trial and error on my part.

And just in case you were wondering if I'm a fan of this track, we used it to end Episode 38 (17:34):



Took the last little section of the song and stuck it in the beginning to avoid clashing with the Taylor Swift vocals:


Crisis averted. Unlike the 2009 VMAs.

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
