Samurai (Go Hard) - R3hab

Speed: 128 bpm The DJ's Take: Just watching that video, I feel like R3hab needs to come out with his own energy drink. That enthusiasm is something any dj should strive for. As for the track, this one hits hard without sounding loud or generic - I like it. Get Samurai in your rotation for a festival or EDM night at the club. And if you're looking to stay key-compatible and blend in some pop, try mixing or mashing up with some of the following: Love Me Again - John Newman , Wizard - Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway , Revolution - R3hab & Nervo & Ummet Ozcan , Scream & Shout - and Britney Spears , Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO , Count On Me - Chase & Status , Scream - Usher , Hey Brother - Avicii Download the song:

Dare You - Hardwell ft. Matthew Koma

Speed: 128 bpm The DJ's Take: This one has a warm 80s glow to it - sort of reminds me of Hungry Like the Wolf (apologies to those who consider that an insult). Probably best saved for an EDM night or festival, but a nice listen with a refined energy that'll probably make you drive too fast on the highway. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with the following: Addicted To You , Levels , Good Feeling , Summertime Sadness Download the song: Amazon:

Invincible - Borgeous

Speed: 128 bpm The DJ's Take: One nice thing about social media - it exposes me to popular EDM I otherwise would've completely missed. The beat feels light yet exhilarating; that drop is probably hyping up a crowd in a club or festival setting somewhere in the world as we speak. Try mixing with some (or all) of the following to stay key-compatible: Hey - Fais ft. Afrojack , Sweet Harmony - Dubvision , DADDY - PSY , Another You - Armin Van Buuren ft. Mr. Probz , Cool - Alesso , Get Outta My Way - Kylie Minogue , Waiting For Love - Avicii , La La La - Naughty Boy ft. Sam Smith , Pompeii - Bastille , Walking On Air - Katy Perry , Dear Boy - Avicii , I Could Be the One (Avicii vs Nicky Romero) [Nicktim - Radio Edit] - Single - Avicii & Nicky Romero , Cinema - Benny Benassi , The Other Side - Jason Derulo , Alive - Krewella , The Veldt - EP - deadmau5 Download the song: Amazon:

Ten Feet Tall - Afrojack ft. Wrabel

Speed: 127 bpm The DJ's Take: Nice little EDM track laced with the prerequisite vocal for mass consumption. For now, I'd probably stick to playing this for fans of the genre, although there's pop potential here. Try mixing with some (or all) of the following to stay key-compatible: Hey Now - Martin Solveig , Take Me - Tiesto , We Run The Night - Havana Brown ft. Pitbull , Marry The Night - Lady Gaga , Club Can't Handle Me - Flo Rida , Danza Kuduro - Don Omar , Shut It Down - Pitbull ft. Akon , Feel So Close - Calvin Harris , F*ck You - Ceelo Green , Push It - Salt N Pepa , U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer , Right Round - Flo Rida Download the song: Amazon:
