Break The Rules - Charli XCX

Speed: 124 bpm

The DJ's Take: Feels a lot like a theme for a chic teen clothing line - don't be shocked if this pops up on TV for a back-to-school ad campaign next August. Until then, worth a spin as restless, loud, semi-danceable Euro pop-rock that younger females can rock out to. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with some or all of the following:

In the 120 bpm range: i - Kendrick LamarAm I Wrong - Nico & VinzInternational Love - Pitbull ft. Chris Brown

In the 125 to 130 bpm range: Blame - Calvin HarrisI Need Your Love - Calvin HarrisThinking About You - Calvin HarrisNeed U (100%) - Duke Dumont ft.
