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

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes

Stay - The Kid LAROI ft. Justin Bieber

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Song #9 in episode #65 of our mix show (22:29): Cool transition out of Scarface's Guess Who's Back ; loop that properly and you've got an interesting potential beat / mashup. And then we slide into T-Pain and Kehlani's I Like Dat to slow down the pace and take us into the home stretch. A must-spin for any pop dj - serves up a burst of bouncy energy for the youth who've been cooped up for awhile now.
