YOUTH - Troye Sivan

Speed: 92 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

The DJ's Take: Pretty fitting that a video for a song about youth features a guy who's 20 and looks like he's 14. Has an upbeat, ethereal feel, and it's doing well on the pop charts by almost any measure.

If you're spinning at around 90 bpm, try mixing with key-compatible tracks like 0 To 100 - Drake, Bailando - Enrique Iglesias, Partition - Beyoncé, Fight Song - Rachel Platten, and Killing Me Softly - Fugees (or half-time over Dangerous Woman - Ariana Grande).

If you're at around 95 bpm, my mashup / mix recommendations would include Company - Justin Bieber, Misery - Gwen Stefani, Show Me - Kid Ink, Partition - Beyoncé, Animals - Maroon 5, Survival of the Fittest - Mobb Deep, and You And Your Friends - Wiz Khalifa.
