ROCKSTAR - DaBaby ft. Roddy Ricch



tempo: 90 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #1 in our chapter 51 mix (made in Logic Pro X):



Big bass, so I had to be strategic about where to transition out and into Rihanna's Work. A little more of an in-depth look, plus some thoughts on its shelf life in a dj's rotation:



Bottom line, when nightlife at college bars picks up again, this will likely be in heavy rotation.

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: roxanne loves cheap thrills (ft. Harry Styles' As It Was x a-ha's Take On Me)

Made with Logic Pro at 86 bpm Quick note on what I did with Harry Styles' As It Was - the original plan was to use that 10 note drum-less synth intro on a loop. But things got a bit more complicated when I realized the 10th note came with a heavy drum hit. So we did a little surgery, subbed in the same note without the drum, and cut it up to get a decent imitation of what I wanted in the beginning.
