Under Control - Calvin Harris & Alesso ft. Hurts



Speed: 126 bpm

The DJ's Take: Solid piece for your EDM arsenal. Is it a hit? If you're talking Top 40, I doubt it; nothing really memorable here, and the vocalist is a relative unknown. But there's an energetic, ethereal vibe that people can get into, even if they don't remember the track the next day. And if your crowd starts yelling 'Play something we know!' you can always fall back on the following:

I Love It - Icona Pop, Cannonball - Showtek & Justin Prime, Animals - Martin Garrix, 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 - LMFAO, Firework - Katy Perry, I Like It - Enrique Iglesias
