Classic - The Knocks ft. Powers

tempo: 102-103 bpm

The DJ's Take: Track #3 in mix #62 (3:51):

I imagine that this song is what someone from Japan thinks California sounds and feels like. A thick, full-bodied groove - good chance it'll be louder than other songs in your mix, so the volume may need to come down. Decreased it to -1.2 dB in Logic Pro X:

Most importantly (for me): a very healthy vocal-free break at the beginning makes it easy to blend with just about anything. Overall, a solid option to fill a couple minutes in your next set.

Some key-compatible music from 100 to 105 bpm:
