Heathens - twenty one pilots

Speed: 90 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

The DJ's Take: Not exactly energetic or uplifting, but somehow it plods along. More importantly, this group seems to have something the young people like. Tough to say if Heathens will turn into a radio staple, but it's doing well on iTunes, so worth a spin in a recorded mix.

If you're around 90 bpm, try mixing with tracks like Youth - Troye Sivan, 0 To 100 - Drake, Bailando - Enrique Iglesias, Partition - Beyoncé, and Killing Me Softly - Fugees (or half-time over Dangerous Woman - Ariana Grande).

If you're closer to 95 bpm, try mixing with Company - Justin Bieber, Misery - Gwen Stefani, Partition - Beyoncé, Animals - Maroon 5, and Survival of the Fittest - Mobb Deep.
