We Belong - Pat Benatar



tempo: 68 bpm

the dj's take: The final song in episode 58 (17:48):



Fun way to end the mix - cut out the last section of this track with the Marquee tool in Logic Pro X so we could open with the heavy percussion (in light pink). Then I added the opening guitar/quasi-percussion from Drake's Hotline Bling (in blue) so we weren't just immediately dropping into Pat Benatar vocals + drum-less synths:



Overall, worth a spin to wrap up your next set - solid singalong potential as well.

Some other key-compatible tracks from 65 to 70 bpm:

Motorsport - Migos
First Day Out - Kodak Black
Versace (Remix) - Migos ft. Drake
Gucci On My - Mike WiLL Made-It, 21 Savage, YG, Migos
Fake Love - Drake
No Sense - Justin Bieber
Are You That Somebody? - Aaliyah

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 .
