Lemonade - Internet Money, Gunna, Don Toliver, NAV



tempo: 70 bpm

bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm

the dj's take: Song #3 in our chapter 56 mix (4:00):



Can't lie - that shade of green in the underwater scenes from the video gave me a flashback to the first time I got stoned in the early 2000s. Was lying in my bed, feeling like I was at the bottom of the ocean, staring up at the sky (i.e. the ceiling).

Five minutes felt like an hour. Called a more experienced friend on my Nokia cell phone, asking if this was normal. They assured me everything would be ok. Had to call in sick to a gig in downtown Boston that night, because my ability to beatmatch by ear was compromised. No regrets.

As for the song itself, I like it quite a bit. May do a video on my decision to mix this into Ginuwine's Pony. More interesting than you might think - stay tuned.

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 .
