Olé - John Newman

Speed: 90 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

The DJ's Take: So apparently this is Calvin Harris throwing shade at Taylor Swift (and yes, I only recently learned what 'shade' means). Or maybe he's just really into bullfighting; who knows. Nice, light summery feel that should work at a laidback outdoor party where people are sipping Corona Light and daintily nibbling on hors d'oeuvres.

If you're around 90 bpm, try mixing with Heathens - twenty one pilots, 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.
