Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars

tempo: 115 bpm

bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm

the DJ's take: Mix or mash up with James Brown's Living In America, and you'll have done about the best thing you can with this track. A banner track for the 2010s. Seriously overplayed everywhere in the past couple years, so let it breathe a little and pick your spots.

Solid roster of key-compatible hits to mix / mash up with:

Between 110 and 115 bpm:

Like A Prayer - Madonna
Shining - DJ Khaled, Jay-Z, Beyoncé
Get Ugly - Jason Derulo
Grenade - Bruno Mars

From 115 to 120 bpm:

1999 - Prince
Tik Tok - Ke$ha
Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better) - Felix Jaehn ft. Jasmine Thompson
I Don't Like It, I Love It - Flo Rida
Love Never Felt So Good - Michael Jackson
All My Love (Remix) - Major Lazer
Motown Philly - Boyz II Men
