2 Phones - Kevin Gates

Speed: 61 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 55 bpm to 60 bpm, 60 bpm to 65 bpm

The DJ's Take: Safe to say this is a safer play on a hiphop night in an urban environment. And yet this song's making a move up the pop charts, so maybe there's some untapped potential with a broader audience. Try mixing or making mashups with tracks like Often - The Weeknd, Yoga - Janelle Monae, CoCo - O.T. Genasis, Party Girls - Ludacris ft. Wiz Khalifa, Birthday Sex - Jeremih, and Loveeeeeee Song - Rihanna ft. Future.

And if you need to pick up the pace, bump up a couple bpm's and try half-timing into tracks like:

Ghost - Oliver Heldens ft. RUMORS, Lift Me Up - David Guetta, Whip It! - LunchMoney Lewis, Sweet Lovin' - Sigala, Won't Stop Rocking - R3hab & Headhunterz, Heaven - Shaun Frank & KSHMR, Poison - Martin Garrix, Love Myself - Hailee Steinfeld, Break Free - Ariana Grande ft. Zedd, Five More Hours - Deorro x Chris Brown, Five Hours - Deorro, Don't Wake Me Up - Chris Brown, Born To Get Wild - Steve Aoki ft., Hideaway - Kiesza, Kanye - The Chainsmokers, Red Lights - Tiesto, Helicopter - Martin Garrix & Firebeatz, Samurai (Go Hard) - R3hab, Love Me Again - John Newman, Wizard - Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway, Revolution - R3hab & Nervo & Ummet Ozcan, Scream & Shout - and Britney Spears, Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO, Count On Me - Chase & Status, Scream - Usher, Hey Brother - Avicii
