Music Review: Hold Yuh - Gyptian

Speed: 101 bpm Recommended bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm The DJ’s Take: This track is a perfect example of beauty in simplicity. Simple keyboard-driven melody, simple shimmering synth underneath (like the one at the beginning of Young Forever ), simple bass, and simple drums. I’ve gotten a couple written-on-a-napkin requests for this one, and most importantly, you can make a pretty sweet 4 song mix with it (see below; use key adjust). Download the song: Amazon: Hold You DJ’s - mix this with: No Letting Go (Album Version) , This Is How We Do It - Montell Jordan , Get Busy (Album Version)

Music Review: Cooler Than Me - Mike Posner

Speed: 131 bpm Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm , 130 to 135 bpm The DJ’s Take: Sure, this is just one of many new mainstream EDM tracks, but it’s more suited for strutting than fist-pumping . I rag on a lot of today’s pop music, but this is catchy, and I’ve been spinning it for the past few weekends. Now that it’s cracked the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, more of your crowd may recognize it, so press play and see what happens. Download the song: DJ’s - mix this with: I Need Your Love - Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding , Va Va Voom - Nicki Minaj , Titanium - David Guetta and Sia , Turn Me On - David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj , Where Have You Been - Rihanna , In The Dark - DEV , Don't Stop The Party - Black Eyed Peas , Take Over Control - Afrojack ft.
