Go DJ - Lil Wayne



tempo: 79 bpm

the dj's take: Song #7 in session 47 (15:42):



Somewhat louder than the tracks that preceded and followed it, so the volume had to come down a little. Prime hype music for people who do work behind the decks - should go over well in a hiphop set.

Ghosts N Stuff - deadmau5



tempo: 128 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #3 in 7squared (4:18):



I like the transition into Imagine Dragons' Believer. The key is finding a percussion-less section in Ghosts N Stuff, and then putting the opening drums of Believer over it. Like a mini-mashup that gets the listener ready for what's to come.

The Box - Roddy Ricch
Dark Horse - Katy Perry ft. Juicy J
Bad and Boujee - Migos ft. Lil Uzi Vert

Bad and Boujee - Migos ft. Lil Uzi Vert



tempo: 63.5 bpm

bpm range: 60 bpm to 65 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #5 in 7squared (8:52):



Can't lie - this one kind of puts me in a trance and makes my eyelids a little heavy. Probably gets a better reception on hiphop nights in Southern venues. Shelf-life is questionable, but in the right circumstances, I'm sure it still works.
