Fairly Local - twenty one pilots
Speed: 58 bpm
The DJ's Take: Pretty sure if this was a hiphop beat, it'd be a hit. Booming, stadium-friendly sound - worth a spot in a mixtape, and doing well on iTunes, so someone's listening somewhere. I'd mix with Only - Nicki Minaj, especially because the bpm's match up and the sound is similarly ominous (plus, people should know that one if they're giving you blank stares over this).
If you want to brighten the vibe a bit, try double-timing with tracks like Poison - Bel Biv Devoe, Billie Jean - Michael Jackson, C O O L - Le Youth, and Get Lucky - Daft Punk.
