Throwback Track: It's Tricky - Run DMC

Speed: 128 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm

The DJ’s Take: You know how I know I watch too much MTV? It’s strange for me to watch a music video where Rev Run is actually rapping, has hair, and isn’t going “hrrr-nrrr-hrrrr” or texting some profound life message on his Blackberry as he takes a bubble bath.

Seriously though, this song is money in the bank. I have never gotten a bad response when I’ve put this on. Ever. Easier to mix in than Ovaltine, which means you can seamlessly blend it in with something like I Gotta Feeling (yes, people still love that song) or any of today’s 125-130 bpm hits and set off an old school-new school party. If you spin anything 80s, this is a staple track, so get it before you forget.
