We R Who We R - Ke$ha

tempo: 120 bpm bpm range: 115  to  120 bpm ,  120  to  125 bpm the DJ’s take: That synth gets under your skin and into the sinews like a warm current of electricity. Probably best enjoyed after several cocktails and some other mind-altering substances. A former #1 song in the country , and Kesha should get a good reaction from the young female demographic, so why not drop it in on a Top 40 night. If you're working between 115 and 120 bpm, try mixing with: Anywhere - Dillon Francis Treasure - Bruno Mars And from 120 to 125 bpm: In The Dark - DEV Break Your Heart - Taio Cruz Swish Swish - Katy Perry Hard Times - Paramore Symphony - Clean Bandit, Zara Larsson This Girl - Kungs, Cookin' On 3 Burners Break The Rules - Charli XCX i - Kendrick Lamar Am I Wrong - Nico & Vinz International Love - Pitbull ft. Chris Brown I Need Your Love - Calvin Harris Need U (100%) - Duke Dumont ft. A*M*E Ocean Drive (Hayden James Remix) - Duke Dumont Shake My - Three

Firework - Katy Perry

tempo: 124 bpm bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ’s Take: Why do I have a premonition that this will either be the soundtrack for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve, or the WNBA Finals? I don’t watch either, so I guess I’ll never know, but maybe I should go put down a bet in Vegas while the vision is still fresh. Honestly, I don’t know if this will do as well as her other recent singles, although the song title and inspirational violins will give this a shelf life beyond the charts. I will say this - it’s no less worthy of making it into the top 10 than anything else she’s done. Try mixing with the following to stay key-compatible: I Love It - Icona Pop , Cannonball - Showtek & Justin Prime , Animals - Martin Garrix , Under Control - Calvin Harris & Alesso , Stay The Night - Zedd , Clarity - Zedd , This Is What It Feels Like - Armin Van Buuren , Turn Up The Music - Chris Brown , Wild Ones - Flo Rida ft. Sia , Beautiful People - Chris Brown , Party Rock Anthem - LMF
