6 Man - Drake

tempo: 79 bpm

the dj’s take: Song #5 in episode #69 of our mix show (7:42):

A rare case where a song pops up two separate times in a mix. First, we did a little a surgery and cut out 1:45-1:48 in 6 Man (a little stretch of percussion-less distorted synth), copied/pasted 3 times, and used that for the transition out of the percussion-less section in Heat Waves. Then I took 1:48-2:00 in 6 Man, which includes a vocal-free loop with percussion as the transition into Missy Elliott's The Rain. Here's how it looked in Logic Pro X - look for the red arrow, and you'll see this all starts ~7:42 into the mix:
Then we utilized that same 1:48-2:00 loop for the transition out of The Rain before getting into the full version of 6 Man:
Could've been simpler, but it sounded good in the end.

If you're in the 75 to 80 bpm range, you can also mix with:

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

DJ mix/mashup: roxanne loves cheap thrills (ft. Harry Styles' As It Was x a-ha's Take On Me)

Made with Logic Pro at 86 bpm Quick note on what I did with Harry Styles' As It Was - the original plan was to use that 10 note drum-less synth intro on a loop. But things got a bit more complicated when I realized the 10th note came with a heavy drum hit. So we did a little surgery, subbed in the same note without the drum, and cut it up to get a decent imitation of what I wanted in the beginning.
