A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays - De La Soul



tempo: 115 bpm

bpm range: 110 to 115 bpm115 to 120 bpm

the DJ’s take: Can we make this the universal theme song for Saturdays? Just a pure, unadulterated groove. I used to have the vinyl version and it was one of my favorites. If you like early 90s hiphop, pick this up and sample some hiphop history.

Some tracks to try mixing with:

From 110 to 115 bpm:

Kiss - Prince
Routine - Alan Walker x David Whistle
Safe And Sound - Justice
D.A.N.C.E. - Justice
Fast Car - Jonas Blue ft. Dakota
C O O L - Le Youth
Say My Name - ODESZA ft. Zyra
Poison - Bel Biv Devoe
Mic Jack - Big Boi, Adam Levine
It Takes Two - Rob Base, DJ EZ Rock

And from 115 to 120 bpm:

Solo Dance - Martin Jensen
This Town (Tiesto Remix) - Niall Horan
Welcome - Martin Garrix & Julian Jordan
Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
Get Lucky - Daft Punk

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes

Stay - The Kid LAROI ft. Justin Bieber

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Song #9 in episode #65 of our mix show (22:29): Cool transition out of Scarface's Guess Who's Back ; loop that properly and you've got an interesting potential beat / mashup. And then we slide into T-Pain and Kehlani's I Like Dat to slow down the pace and take us into the home stretch. A must-spin for any pop dj - serves up a burst of bouncy energy for the youth who've been cooped up for awhile now.
