dj mix/mashup: hung up and lost (Shakira, Bizarrap, Frank Ocean, Madonna, Empire of the Sun)

Made with Logic Pro at 118 bpm

Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53 - Bizarrap, Shakira [122 bpm]
Lost - Frank Ocean
Hung Up - Madonna
Alive - Empire of the Sun

I was actually sitting on this for about 3 weeks, had the basic framework and song selection, kept getting hung up on whether to bring in Hung Up or Alive first (among some other things), then it finally clicked at the eleventh hour. My favorite part may be at the end where it's just Lost and Hung Up, and Hung Up is building up into the drop - just learned today that it's a sample from this ABBA song (about 19 seconds in).

As always, got all the music off my own djcheatsheet.com120 to 125 bpm playlist, although the final version clocked in at 118 bpm. Why? My mind was probably just on auto-pilot, but everything sounded ok in the end.

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

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 .
