Music Review: Opposite of Adults - Chiddy Bang

Speed: 96 bpm The DJ’s Take: Simple and unassuming, head-nodding percussion, and solid rapping. It’s like someone finally decided to take mainstream listeners seriously, and it works. I’ll be disappointed if this doesn’t become at least a minor hit. More importantly, with the key and general bpm, you can add this as another element in my go-to mix that I often use within the first hour or two of a set (see below). Download the MP3: DJ’s - mix this with: Ridin Solo - Jason Derulo , Airplanes - B.o.B , Find Your Love - Drake , Flashing Lights - Kanye West , Replay - IYAZ , Renee - Lost Boyz

Music Review: DJ Got Us Fallin In Love - Usher ft. Pitbull

Speed: 120 bpm The DJ’s Take: This song is so generic that during my first listen, it reminded me of at least 3 or 4 other recent hits. Off the top of my head, I had flashbacks to TiK ToK , Break Your Heart , and Please Don’t Stop the Music , mostly because of the pulsing percussion and/or the general feel. Just listening without mixing, none of these is really a match key-wise, but you could blend them together along with a bunch of other dance tracks in the 120 - 125 bpm range to keep the floor moving. Is this a hit? Probably. Just give me a couple months before I come around on it. Download the song: Amazon:   DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love
