U Got It Bad - Usher

tempo: 62 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #8 in 7squared (15:59): Is there any easier mix / mashup than this and Burn ? Almost like Usher delivered twins. If you're going from U Got It Bad into Burn, that guitar solo starting around 3:04 is a good spot to start the transition. Some other key-compatible music: Believer - Imagine Dragons Ghosts N Stuff - deadmau5 The Box - Roddy Ricch Dark Horse - Katy Perry ft. Juicy J Bad and Boujee - Migos ft. Lil Uzi Vert My Way - Fetty Wap ft. Monty DEVASTATED - Joey Bada$$ download or stream U Got It Bad: spotify playlist amazon

I.F.L.Y. - Bazzi

tempo: 105 bpm The DJ's Take: Penultimate song in 45 and Lex  (15:49): Did you know Bazzi sells his own boxing hand wraps: What's his connection to the sweet science? Because if there isn't one, maybe it's time to make my own line of curling stones. Anyway, nice background music for a Sunday stroll, arm-in-arm in the park during a montage in a romantic movie. Also a solid choice when you're starting to wrap up a set - guitars and gentle beat make it melt into Halsey's You should be sad . Some key-compatible music between 100 and 105 bpm: Something Just Like This - The Chainsmokers & Coldplay Paris - The Chainsmokers Kids - OneRepublic I'm In Control - AlunaGeorge Perfect (Matoma Remix) - One Direction Cheyenne - Jason Derulo Classic - The Knocks Alejandro - Lady Gaga And from 105 to 110 bpm: Midnight City - M83 Cake - Flo Rida & 99 Percent Anywhere - Rita Ora LoveGame - Lady Gaga Breathe Deeper - Tame Impala

Looking Through Patient Eyes - P.M. Dawn

tempo: 102 bpm the dj's take: Final song in #48 (28:08): As I mentioned when we talked about Father Figure , I had to do a little surgery in Logic Pro X to make the beats match more closely. That's the challenge sometimes when you're mixing music from the 80s and 90s; less computerized, so things can feel a little more uneven. But if you slice & dice the right way without warping the music, the end result sounds pretty good. Some other key-compatible tracks: Yeah! - Usher Truffle Butter - Nicki Minaj, Drake & Lil Wayne In Your Eyes - The Weeknd I Love It - Kanye West & Lil Pump ft. Adele Givens Don't Matter To Me - Drake, Michael Jackson Havana - Camila Cabello Don't Quit - DJ Khaled, Calvin Harris, Travis Scott, Jeremih Nothin' On You - B.o.B ft. Bruno Mars Obsession - Vice ft. Jon Bellion No More Sad Songs - Little Mix ft. Machine Gun Kelly Buried In Detroit (Lucas Löwe Remix) - Mike Posner ft. Big Sean I Took A Pil

Within the mix: Echo Effect in Logic Pro X for I Wonder (Kanye West) x Starboy (The Weeknd + Daft Punk)

My improvised method for creating an echo effect with Logic Pro X in I Wonder (Kanye West) over the intro to Starboy (The Weeknd & Daft Punk) . Any feedback on how to do it better?
