The Only Way Is Up - Martin Garrix & Tiësto

Speed: 128 bpm

The DJ's Take: Not sure how I feel about all the distorted voices, but the beat has a sizzle to it. Plus, you've got two names that are so big in EDM, even a know-nothing like me can recognize them. Better employed during an electronic set than Top 40, although if you mix into something like Avicii's Levels, Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais Remix) - Lana Del Rey or Flo Rida's Good Feeling, a pop crowd may forgive you.

Some other key-compatible tracks include Pound The Alarm - Nicki Minaj, The Night Is Still Young - Nicki Minaj, I Will Never Let You Down - Rita Ora, Addicted To You - Avicii, and Die Young - Ke$ha.

Edit: Was just listening to Pandora, and if you want to keep the electronic vibe going, Dare You - Hardwell, Calling (Lose My Mind) [Radio Edit] [feat. Ryan Tedder] - Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso and City of Dreams (feat. Ruben Haze) - Dirty South & Alesso should fit in pretty nicely.
