Some notable turnover this month, including a brand new #1:


BMC Top 5 Singles for June 2011:

1. Don't Wanna Go Home - Jason Derulo

2. ET - Katy Perry ft. Kanye West

3. Just Can't Get Enough - Black Eyed Peas

4. She Ain't You - Chris Brown

Top 5 BPMs for June 2011:

1. 125 bpm

2. 100 bpm

3. 130 bpm

4. 120 bpm

5. 85 bpm

I cannot believe you guys (and girls) are so into that Jason Derulo track. Did you just read my review and decide to visit the page a lot to spite me? That's the only explanation I can come up with. Or maybe it's the whole Friday phenomenon (i.e. so bad you can't turn away).

Seriously though, it's good to see and hear that you're enjoying the blog and making good use of it. Any questions or ideas about music and dj'ing in general, send me an e-mail.

Got your own ideas about what should be in the Top 5? Leave a comment.

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

ROCKSTAR - DaBaby ft. Roddy Ricch

tempo: 90 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #1 in our chapter 51 mix (made in Logic Pro X ): Big bass, so I had to be strategic about where to transition out and into Rihanna's Work . A little more of an in-depth look, plus some thoughts on its shelf life in a dj's rotation: Bottom line, when nightlife at college bars picks up again, this will likely be in heavy rotation.
