Easy On Me - Adele

speed: 71 bpm

the dj’s take: Song #1 in episode 70:

Not exactly a banger, but we're trying to ride the mythical algorithm into some listens, you know? Although eventually the bass provides a little ghost percussion effect that builds up into the rest of the mix. I'd probably save this for the very beginning or end of a set. Then there's nowhere to go but up in terms of energy, or you're shutting it all down.

Based on my research, 2:25 is a good time to move into the next song - Adele starts getting fancy with the word 'easy,' and you bring in an instrumental intro for whatever's coming up. Positions was a decent choice here because the first few notes are just plucked strings with no drums, so the transition feels like a natural continuation.

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
