Helicopter - Martin Garrix & Firebeatz

Speed: 128 bpm The DJ's Take: More standard issue EDM fit for a festival or club night. The intermittent aircraft noises are a nice touch. Try blending with some or all of the following for a mix of pop and electronic flavor: Samurai (Go Hard) - R3hab , 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: Amazon:

The Devil Is A Lie - Rick Ross ft. Jay-Z

Speed: 51.5 bpm The DJ's Take: Didn't think much of this after the first listen, but after slipping on my headphones, I started to feel it more. You probably want to save this for a hiphop crowd or a mixtape, although the star power could make it more amenable for the masses. In any case, here's what's interesting to me - given the unconventionally slow bpm, you can pick up the pace and double-time into a pretty nice set of somewhat key-compatible tracks including Get Busy - Sean Paul , Get Low - Lil Jon , Hold Yuh - Gyptian , No Letting Go - Wayne Wonder , and This Is How We Do It - Montell Jordan .
