Throwback Thursday: 1999 - Prince

Speed: 119 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm

The DJ's Take: Very rare that I get any kind of a rise when a legend dies. But with MJ and Whitney Houston, we sort of saw it coming, right? Prince seemed more like some alien who would live forever. Anyway, this was a staple of my music collection back when I spun an 80s night. And you're pretty much guaranteed to get requests for 1999 (and just about any other big song he did) this weekend and probably next weekend as well. A must-download.

If you're at around 115 bpm, try mixing with key-compatible tracks like Tik Tok - Ke$ha, Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better) - Felix Jaehn ft. Jasmine Thompson, I Don't Like It, I Love It - Flo Rida, Love Never Felt So Good - Michael Jackson, All My Love (Remix) - Major Lazer, Motown Philly - Boyz II Men, and Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars.

If you're at 120+, try mixing with tracks like Nocturnal - Disclosure ft. The Weeknd, Book of Love - Felix Jaehn, New Romantics - Taylor Swift, I Really Like You - Carly Rae Jepsen, and Let Me Love You - NeYo.
