Under The Influence - Chris Brown



tempo: 58-59 bpm

the DJ's take: Two notable sections if you're using this for a mashup: first ~16 seconds for a drum-free instrumental, and 1:05-1:22 for an instrumental with percussion. Take either of them, turn into a loop for as long as needed, and that's a fun ingredient for something bigger.

Could sound interesting with Never Be Like You - Flume, Kai, Pursuit of Happiness - Kid Cudi, MGMT, Ratatat, SeƱorita - Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes or Everything We Need - Kanye West, Ty Dolla $ign, Ant Clemons [58-59 bpm], off the top of my head. Full playlist is here, so try it out and see what other combinations you come up with. download or stream Under the Influence:

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 .

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
