No Option - Kid Ink ft. King Los

Speed: 66 bpm The DJ's Take: Now that Show Me is starting to gain some momentum, where's the next hit coming from? If you're looking for something more club-friendly, I'd go with this. That bass really fills things out, and if you've still got Pop That and Pour It Up in your rotation, No Option could fit in nicely. You can also throw in Iz U Down off the same album. And if you feel like speeding things up (or doing a change-of-pace remix/mashup) while staying key-compatible, try double-timing with the tracks below: Noche No Termina - Pitbull , That High - Pitbull ft. Kelly Rowland , Wake Me Up - Avicii , Don't You Worry Child - Swedish House Mafia , P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing) , Gangnam Style - PSY , Starships - Nicki Minaj , Without You - David Guetta ft. Usher , Mr. Saxobeat - Alexandra Stan , Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 , Who's That Chick - David Guetta ft. Rihanna , Yeah 3X - Chris Brown , Only Girl in the World - Rihanna , Sexy Bitch - Akon

Counting Stars - OneRepublic

Speed: 122 bpm The DJ's Take: Took me long enough to cover this, I know. My issue was whether or not it was danceable enough. But when a song becomes such a big hit, I guess that answers the question. On a normal night, Counting Stars may work in a pub setting. The real value may come when you're spinning a holiday or New Year's party, when there's maybe a broader demographic. Try using this as a key-compatible bridge between some safer 115 to 120 bpm tracks: Black or White - Michael Jackson , Just Dance - Lady Gaga , Dynamite - Taio Cruz , Billie Jean - Michael Jackson and some popular 125 to 130 bpm dance tracks: Summertime Sadness - Lana Del Rey (Cedric Gervais remix) , Levels - Avicii , Die Young - Ke$ha and maybe even C'Mon Download the song: Amazon:
