dj mix/mashup: xxplosive & obsessed (Mariah Carey, Dr. Dre, Ariana Grande, Kanye West)

Made with Logic Pro at 88 bpm

Still trying to find a spot for Blinding Lights; thought I had something with Xxplosive, but upon closer listening, the basslines didn't quite match up for me (yes, I'm getting pickier). I actually had a longer version of this where I mixed break up with your girlfriend and Duran Duran's Come Undone; they sound good together, but it felt extraneous, so I cut that out.

And in case you were wondering - the blinking light in the intro to the video was a decoration at a bar I wandered into in downtown Seattle a couple months ago. Should've asked where to get one for my living room.

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
