dj mix/mashup: Fancy Baby One More Time (The Weeknd, Britney Spears, TLC, Iggy Azalea)




Made with Logic Pro at 93 bpm

Songs used:

Out of Time - The Weeknd
Creep - TLC
...Baby One More Time - Britney Spears
Fancy - Iggy Azalea, Charli XCX
I Feel It Coming - The Weeknd, Daft Punk

First 40 seconds or so are a compressed version of an 8-10 minute mix that should get a crowd going at a wedding or a college bar on a pop night. Then we switch out Fancy for Out of Time as we settle in; sounds a little uneven, like someone slowly navigating a narrow sidewalk after some late-night libations. But that's just the natural vibe of Out of Time contrasting with the tighter percussion in the other two songs. I Feel It Coming was a natural choice to close out on a high note.

Mix #78 offers a much more extended version of this, and if you feel like making your own thing, here's the full playlist I used.

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 .
