Take Me Home - Cash Cash ft. Bebe Rexha

Speed: 128 bpm The DJ's Take: That accent gets your attention, doesn't it? I especially like how she pronounces 'dancing.' Nice, bright beat that females can get down to. It's already crept into the Billboard Hot 100, and I could see Take Me Home gaining popularity in the weeks to come. My key-compatible mix recommendations include I Cry , I Gotta Feeling , Let's Go , the remix for Day N Nite , and maybe even Scream & Shout as a transition track into another key. Speed up a little and Feel This Moment fits well, and if you slow it down a few bpm's, Call Me Maybe could work. Download the song: Amazon:

Happy - Pharrell Williams

tempo: 160 bpm bpm range:   75 bpm  to  80 bpm ,  80 bpm  to  85 bpm ,  155  to  160 bpm ,  160  to  165 bpm The DJ's Take:  This sounds like a Motown throwback, and I can't stop tapping my foot. Sure, it's from a soundtrack for a kids' movie, but Happy just feels like a future #1 hit in the US (and it already is in the UK). Definitely should be in your rotation for a wedding or family event, and could become a staple for your bar gig once it gets a little more airplay and moves up the charts.
