Swerve - Sage the Gemini

Speed: 95 bpm

The DJ's Take: As the old saying goes, sometimes less is more. Nondescript lyrics and decent flow over a chill, almost hypnotic beat make this worth a spin in a laid-back 90 to 95 bpm hiphop mix. Stay key-compatible and try mixing with tracks like Numb - August AlsinaShow Me - Kid Ink, Adorn - MiguelDiamonds - Rihanna, and Somebody Else - Mario, then maybe lead your crowd out of the clouds with something sunny like Right Here - SWV or She Ain't You - Chris Brown. If you want to dial it up a couple bpm's, transition into Turn Down For What - DJ Snake.
