Fashion Killa - A$AP Rocky



speed: 70 bpm

the dj’s take: Song #2 in episode #68 of our mix show (2:15):



So I issued the challenge to mashup Whatcha Say with Fashion Killa awhile ago, and when no one answers the call, you have to take matters into your own hands. My final verdict: it was ok. The beats are definitely compatible with the robotic female voices, although it took some adjusting to keep them from overwhelming each other during the transition.

I think the potential for a good mashup is still there. But you may want to put in a little more work than I did.

Some other key-compatible music:

Don't Go - Skrillex, Justin Bieber, Don Toliver [75 bpm]
Up and Down - Doja Cat [75 bpm]
STUNNAMAN - Birdman, Roddy Ricch, Lil Wayne [72-73 bpm]
By Your Side - Sade [73 bpm]
In For The Kill - La Roux
Believer - Major Lazer, Showtek
Everyday - A$AP Rocky, Rod Stewart, Miguel, Mark Ronson
She Knows - Ne-Yo, Juicy J
Whatcha Say - Jason Derulo
Ridin' - Chamillionaire, Krayzie Bone
No Matter What - T.I.
Freal Luv - Far East Movement, Marshmello, Chanyeol, Tinashe
Cry Me A River - Justin Timberlake
I Fall Apart - Post Malone
Still Tippin' - Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Slim Thug
HUMBLE. - Kendrick Lamar
2U - David Guetta, Justin Bieber
Sensualidad - Bad Bunny
New Patek - Lil Uzi Vert
Can't Take It From Me - Major Lazer, Skip Marley
Rescue Me - Marshmello
My Window - YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Lil Wayne

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 .
