Body Party - Ciara

Speed: 67 bpm Recommended bpm range: 65 bpm to 70 bpm The DJ's Take: Every good dj needs an end-of-the-night track that cools the crowd off and says 'you don't have to go home, but you can't stay here.' This is that song. Making a decent move up the charts, so people should recognize it. Plus, not a bad soundtrack as couples pair up and head out. Download the song: Amazon

Live For The Night - Krewella

Speed: 128 bpm Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: About as canned and generic as it gets. But in the right place at the right time, why not test it out and see how the crowd reacts? Somehow I feel like this would go nicely with Pitbull's Don't Stop The Party . Little bit of a style contrast there, and that can be a good way to make a transition. Other tracks worth mixing in include Booyah - Showtek , You Make Me - Avicii , On The Floor - Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull ,  Give It 2 U - Robin Thicke ,  Right Now - Rihanna and David Guetta , We Found Love - Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris , S&M - Rihanna , Sweet Nothing - Calvin Harris ft. Florence Welch , Bulletproof - La Roux ,  Low - Flo Rida ,  Calabria - Enur , and Back To The Pump - Benny Benassi . Download the song: Amazon

The Other Side - Jason Derulo

Speed: 128 bpm Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: This is like a really loud version of deadmau5's The Veldt . If you're looking to integrate into a Top 40 mix, blending in Krewella's Alive  should work. Been on constant rotation on my local radio station, so consider getting it on your summer playlist. Try mixing with tracks like: Hey - Fais ft. Afrojack , Sweet Harmony - Dubvision , DADDY - PSY , Another You - Armin Van Buuren ft. Mr. Probz , Cool - Alesso , Get Outta My Way - Kylie Minogue , Waiting For Love - Avicii , La La La - Naughty Boy ft. Sam Smith , Pompeii - Bastille , Invincible - Borgeous , Dear Boy - Avicii , I Could Be the One (Avicii vs Nicky Romero) [Nicktim - Radio Edit] - Single - Avicii & Nicky Romero , The Other Side - Jason Derulo , Easy Love - Sigala Download the song: Amazon
