We Go Down - Krewella

Speed: 86 bpm The DJ's Take: I'm sensing multiple influences here - pop, reggaeton, dubstep, and a notable dose of drum & bass. Kind of like a Vietnamese spring roll of sound, if you will. In any case, this group seems to be bridging the gap between the casual and more dedicated EDM fan, and We Go Down should go down smoothly with a crowd of energetic twenty-somethings. Pair or mash up with something like Rihanna's Cheers (Drink To That)  to stay key-compatible and semi-recognizable. Download the song:  Amazon:

Cinema - Benny Benassi ft. Gary Go

Speed: 130 bpm The DJ's Take: If I ever get to review movies on TV, this will be the theme for my show. Maybe not the greatest choice for a Top 40 bar gig, but it's got a lively pulse that gently pounds the pavement. The vocals and the synths bring to mind a BBC-style science or technology documentary. If your crowd needs a transition into something more popular and key-compatible, try the following: 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 , Alive - Krewella , Easy Love - Sigala , The Veldt - EP - deadmau5 Download the song:   Amazon: 

DJ App Reviews: djay 2 for iPad and iPhone

So I've been using this app to help me figure out which songs go well together, and I think it's pretty good. Looping's easy enough, and the interface gives a pretty accurate representation of what real turntables look and feel like. The experts seem to appreciate it too: 'With its first major update, djay 2 has truly become a whole new program, with enough performance features to match or exceed any other iOS DJing app. It can't offer the same integration with professional desktop software as Traktor DJ , but it's worth every bit of the introductory price and then some.' - 'Everything about djay 2 is very smart and yet easy to use. The design is familiar and new. Amateurs and professionals will be happy. Algoriddim is fulfilling its original vision.' - Cult of Mac Want to try it out? Click the links below to download. The iPhone version is currently $2.99 and the iPad version is $4.99. iPhone: iPad:
