Beware - Big Sean ft. Lil Wayne and Jhene Aiko

Speed: 97 bpm The DJ's Take: For some reason, this reminds me a little of Heartless. Low-key, minimalist production that feels intentional, and it kind of works. Will it get your crowd moving? I'm going to say probably not. But you can make Beware a decent piece of a mix tape - should work in some kind of combo with I'm Turnt , Up Down , Gas Pedal and Beat It . Download the song: Amazon:

Gas Pedal - Sage The Gemini ft. IamSu

Speed: 98 bpm The DJ's Take: This reminds me of David Banner's Play from awhile back, only more yawn-inducing and a lot less provocative. The chorus makes the song an earworm for sure, but not necessarily the good kind. Worth a download due to chart performance, crowd engagement potential, and the quasi-hypnosis it induces. Try mixing with I'm Turnt , Up Down , Beware or Beat It . Which track is catchier? Gas Pedal Don't Drop That Thun Thun Thun free polls   Download the song: Amazon:

Applause - Lady Gaga

Speed: 140 bpm The DJ's Take: It's been awhile since we last heard from her, and I'm not sure what to think. Sounds like she's channeling David Bowie at the beginning before we get into the frenetically electric hook. Could be big in Europe and among her hardcore fans, but doesn't really do much for me. Will be interesting to see how it does going forward. Try double-timing with Rap God , I Need A Doctor , and Forgot About Dre . If you want to keep things fast while staying key-compatible (and your crowd doesn't mind something corny), try mixing with Cupid Shuffle . What do you think of Applause?
