Rather Be - Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne
Speed: 121 bpm
The DJ's Take: A breezy pop song that skips along nicely with some 90s club elements sprinkled in. Plus, it's #1 on the Billboard UK Chart, and I don't see why it can't cross over to the States in time. If I hosted my own travel show on TV, this would be a pretty good opening theme.
Try mixing with Poker Face - Lady Gaga, The Way I Are (feat. Keri Hilson & D.O.E.) - Timbaland and/or Forever - Chris Brown. And if you want to dial up to that 125 to 130 bpm pop range, Timber can help you stay key-compatible and boost the energy if things are slowing down.
