Throwback Track: Shoop - Salt N Pepa

Speed: 97 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm, 95 to 100 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Are you opening with a hiphop and R&B mix in the 90-95 bpm range, and your crowd is looking a little sluggish? This track is about as safe a play as you can make to get things going again. Females know it and like it, and sometimes they’ll even sing along. It’s sort of like Roger Federer’s slice backhand - it may not win you the point right away, but it’ll set you up for better things ahead.
