Some of My Favourite DropMix Cards in the Base Set


DropMix comes with 60 cards to get your adventure into card-based DJ-ing started. Part of the game’s magic is that everything seemingly mixes together perfect. That said, I definitely have a few go-to cards that I use heavily in my mixes.

This list only covers cards in the base game. I own a few expansions as well, so maybe I’ll spotlight those at some point as well!


Imagine Dragons – “Radioactive” – Drums

The breakout hit for Imagine Dragons features a mid-tempo drum beat featuring a heavily distorted kick and an almost hydraulic snare. It’s so minimalist that it works for almost anything. It sounds natural at a slower pace, while adding extra thump to a faster track.


Ed Sheeran – “Sing” – Vocals

Of the different “instrument” types, it feels like vocals is the area in which the game needs the most help. Ed Sheeran’s “Sing” is a go-to partially cause your options on this front are pretty thin. That said, it’s a great vocal performance that has a catchy hook and a sing-songy verse that can fit over a lot of songs.


The Weeknd – “Can’t Feel My Face” – Bass

The bass guitar is the driving force behind The Weeknd’s smash hit. Pulsing in-and-out of the track, it provides a steady groove that fits on many different tracks.


Afrojack ft. Eva Simons – “Take Over Control” – Synth

Squealing onto this list is the synth line that appears during the chorus of “Take Over Control” by Afrojack ft. Eva Simons. As a synth line, its sharp frequency cuts through to stand out in any mix. Melodically, it’s also simple enough to fit over many different mixes as an accent piece.


Bruno Mars – “24K Magic” – Wild

Wild cards in DropMix can be a mixed bag. Some wild cards suffer from being great when taken as a whole, but their individual components don’t hold up well when mixed with other instruments. Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic” has four great parts that can all exist as separate pieces.

    Was the Scenario (A Tribe Called Quest) vocal track in the base set? That one goes with pretty much anything!
