DJ mix/mashup: You Know You Like Roses (DJ Snake, Saint JHn, DMX, Eminem)




Made with Logic Pro at 105 bpm

If I keep doing these, hopefully they all come together as quickly and easily as this one. Started off with the vocal-only intro for DJ Snake and AlunaGeorge over a little section of Roses with minimal vocals, and made that the central theme. Then I took a couple parts from the intro to Intro by DMX. Fun fact: found this one on youtube when an article (or the algorithm) brought me to the walkout for a post-prison Mike Tyson fight. Tell me those bells aren't the ultimate death knell:



And then we switched up the mood a bit with The Real Slim Shady and its dark, bouncy looniness. Probably the biggest hit of the four pieces we used, and good background sound for a mental institution or a Halloween party.

Amazon downloads below, and don't forget the key- and bpm-compatible DJ Cheat Sheet playlist if you want to make your own version. Plus - a full mix stretched out to 19 minutes featuring this music and more.

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 .
