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: 6 man [drake] x devil in a new dress [kanye west, rick ross]

Made with Logic Pro at 82 bpm Clip from mix #69 - two big beats on top of each other, which I could've done a better job adjusting for a cleaner sound. But if you listen to the actual mix, the transition sounds smooth; my goal for this video was to create a loop that feels like the first draft of a mashup/remix. Worth building on for a future project. Key- and bpm-compatible playlist

dj mix/mashup: gold [kiiara] x genie in a bottle [christina aguilera]

Made with Logic Pro at 87 bpm Not exactly how the transition went in mix #77 ; had to edit the Genie in a Bottle intro a little to cut out Christina Aguilera's vocals and make it more loop-able. A nice pairing - Gold has vocals and minimal percussion, and fits nicely over the Genie in a Bottle instrumental. Another good candidate for a full-on mashup or remix for someone who wants to dig in a little more. Key- and bpm-compatible playlist
