Cake - Flo Rida & 99 Percent



tempo: 105 bpm

The DJ's Take: The leadoff song in 45 and Lex:



Surprising that this wasn't a bigger hit. Party vibe is undeniable; should play well for people of all ages. Flows nicely into Clean Bandit & Demi Lovato's Solo, and gets the mix off to a strong start.

On a side note, saw this t-shirt on amazon and had a flashback to high school [click the image for the product page]:



This is the album that features one of the great workout songs of all-time:


I remember being on the tennis team, riding shotgun to an away match, and the coach suddenly asked me to take over the steering wheel so he could eat a sandwich. This song was blasting on the stereo as we were going around 80 mph on the highway. Pretty exhilarating. Also a minor miracle that we didn't all die.

Anyway, back to the Flo Rida track - some key-compatible music between 100 and 105 bpm:

Something Just Like This - The Chainsmokers & Coldplay
Paris - The Chainsmokers
I'm In Control - AlunaGeorge
Perfect (Matoma Remix) - One Direction
Cheyenne - Jason Derulo
Classic - The Knocks
Alejandro - Lady Gaga

And from 105 to 110 bpm:
