Blueberry Faygo - Lil Mosey



tempo: 99 bpm

the dj's take: Song #3 in session 52 (4:35):



I'm not normally one to listen to lyrics, but sometimes they tell you when it's time to make a transition in a mix. In this case, hearing Lil Mosey say 'big' made me think of Fatman Scoop yelling 'Bass Drop!' near the beginning of Be Faithful. So together, they say 'big bass drop' (via genius.com):



Entertained the idea of overlapping the two, but the heavy drums from Be Faithful kind of drowned out Lil Mosey, so we opted for the drop instead. Worth a try in your next pop/hiphop set.

Some other key-compatible music:

Happier - Marshmello, Bastille
Lonely Together - Avicii ft. Rita Ora
Me & The Rhythm - Selena Gomez
Crazy In Love - Beyoncé ft. Jay-Z
Doo Wop (That Thing) - Lauryn Hill
I Think Of You - Jeremih, Chris Brown, Big Sean
Kiss The Sky - The Knocks
Levels - Nick Jonas
Pretty Girls - Britney Spears ft. Iggy Azalea

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

DJ mix/mashup: no can do because of you (ft. Hall & Oates and Ne-Yo)

Made with Logic Pro at 113 bpm A quick clip from the last mix , and one of my favorite transitions in it. Kind of alluring, mysterious; maybe we can make a more fully realized remix/mashup someday. If you're wondering what the image is in the background at the start of the video, those are quahogs and a channeled whelk I dug out of the sand in low tide on a recent beach trip. Pretty solid haul, and good eating for sure. Although I probably should've kept them separate - apparently whelks like to eat the clams .
