Live While We're Young - One Direction

Speed: 126 bpm The DJ's Take: As a 30+ year old male, I possess a general immunity to One Direction. That said, this is another slickly produced single that younger females will love. Sounds a lot like that Starships track though, doesn't it? Anyway, try turning on key adjust and mixing with the following: Gangnam Style - PSY , Starships - Nicki Minaj , Without You - David Guetta ft. Usher , Mr. Saxobeat - Alexandra Stan , Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 , Who's That Chick - David Guetta ft. Rihanna , Yeah 3X - Chris Brown , Only Girl in the World - Rihanna , Sexy Bitch - Akon , One More Time - Daft Punk , Meet Me Halfway - Black Eyed Peas , Down - Jay Sean , Disturbia , Hotel Room Service - Pitbull , Day N Nite - Kid Cudi (Crookers Remix) Download the song:

DJ Equipment Reviews: Numark DJ2Go

When I was a dj, portability was one of my biggest considerations in buying equipment. That's why the Numark DJ2Go would be something I'd consider buying. Fits in a backpack, and seems to have all the basics you need to play a party or a weekly bar gig.

Once I moved away from vinyl, I always went for the simplest, smallest equipment I could

I Cry - Flo Rida

Speed: 126 bpm The DJ's Take: Kind of strange not to see Flo Rida doing a party video. I feel like if he's trying to do something inspirational, maybe slow it down and go with something a little heavier. Not a bad track, but everything feels a bit rushed here, including the sample. Worth a spin at least to see how your crowd reacts.  Try turning on key adjust and mixing with Call Me Maybe . You can also speed up a little and mix with Feel This Moment , Scream & Shout , and maybe even the Day 'N' Nite dance remix . Download the song: Amazon:
