Nocturnal - Disclosure ft. The Weeknd (Disclosure V.I.P.)

Speed: 123 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 120 to 125 bpm, 125 to 130 bpm

The DJ's Take: This is possibly the first song I've ever heard that had a 3 minute 30 second intro. To sum it up - first half is vocals with glittery synths, second half is a snazzy little beat you can snap your fingers to while dancing like a pretentious, self-unaware frat boy. If you're staying relatively key-compatible, try mixing or doing a mashup with tracks like:

Faith - Calvin Harris, Book of Love - Felix Jaehn, New Romantics - Taylor Swift, I Really Like You - Carly Rae Jepsen, Let Me Love You - NeYo, California Gurls - Katy Perry

Or if you're feeling adventurous, you could try double-timing over The Recipe - Kendrick Lamar, Hotline Bling - Drake, No Sense - Justin Bieber ft. Travi$ Scott, No Type - Rae Sremmurd, oui - Jeremih, I Should've Cheated - Keyshia Cole, Here - Alessia Cara, and Blasé (feat. Future & Rae Sremmurd) - Ty Dolla $ign.
