Flashlight - R3hab & Deorro

Speed: 128 bpm Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: You probably only want to break this out for EDM fans in a club or at a festival, but that drop is pretty distinctive (to my uneducated ears, at least). Worth a download and a spin. For a key-compatible mix, try blending with any of the following: Now That I've Found You - Martin Garrix , I'll House You (VIP Mix) - Don Diablo ft. Jungle Brothers , Virus (How About Now) - Martin Garrix ft. MOTi , Strong - R3HAB and KSHMR , What Do You Mean? - Justin Bieber , Wildest Dreams (R3hab Remix) - Taylor Swift , Disarm You - Kaskade , One Last Time - Ariana Grande , Time of Our Lives - Pitbull and NeYo , Fireball - Pitbull , Open Wide - Calvin Harris , #SELFIE - The Chainsmokers , Cannonball (Earthquake) - Showtek & Justin Prime ft. Matthew Koma , I Love It - Icona Pop , Animals - Martin Garrix , Under Control - Calvin Harris & Alesso , Stay The Night - Zedd , Clarity - Zedd , This Is What It Feel

Sleeping With A Friend - Neon Trees

Speed: 107 bpm The DJ's Take: Very polished pop song with a little 80s flavor, and it's climbing into the upper half of the Billboard Hot 100. Worth a spin in a calmer lounge or bar-type environment. To stay key-compatible, try mixing with any of the following - Midnight City - M83 , Alejandro - Lady Gaga , LoveGame - Lady Gaga , Nasty Boy - Notorious BIG . Download the song: Amazon: Sleeping With A Friend

Love Never Felt So Good - Michael Jackson

Speed: 117 bpm The DJ's Take: Sounds like a first draft of a lost track from Off the Wall , right? Or maybe Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe (interesting mashup possibility if you're spinning for older folk). In any case, this has gotten a lot of buzz, and people still love the King of Pop, so I figure this has a shelf life of at least the next weekend or two. Besides the aforementioned Barry White track, this should be key-compatible with Tik Tok . Worth a download and a spin.

A Sky Full Of Stars - Coldplay

Speed: 125 bpm The DJ's Take: One good thing about reading YouTube comments - I learned this was produced by Avicii. Not sure if it's really danceable; feels more like something you'd go adventuring to. Still, given the big names involved, I'm guessing this'll get some love on the charts and on the radio. In fact, as I'm typing this, A Sky Full Of Stars is #1 on iTunes, so certainly worth a download (even if it's for your own personal playlist). To stay key-compatible, try mixing with some or all of the following: You Make Me - Avicii , On The Floor - Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull , Give It 2 U - Robin Thicke , Live For The Night - Krewella , Don't Stop The Party - Pitbull , Right Now - Rihanna and David Guetta , We Found Love - Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris , S&M - Rihanna , Bulletproof - La Roux , Low (feat. T-Pain) - Flo Rida , Calabria 2007 - Enur Download the song: Amazon: A Sky Full Of Stars

Problem - Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea

Speed: 103 bpm The DJ's Take: Sort of a tough one to analyze. On one hand, the buzz is big and this could be high on the charts from the start. On the other hand, who's driving that demand? My guess - tweens, teens and young college students. So be selective where you spin it, especially if you're not getting direct requests (prom, graduation parties, and dorm parties may make the most sense). Plus, it's hard to say how long this will stay hot, so monitor the charts and the radio play from time to time. As for the song, I'm not really into it. Sounds like a girl trying to act like a woman (pretty typical for a Disney star being marketed to the crowd she's growing up with), and it's a bit awkward and overdone. Then again, I didn't think much of Talk Dirty , so what do I know. As for mix/mashup recommendations, there's only one track I can think of that really matches key-wise and beat-wise (and you'll have to bump Problem down a few bpm&#

Wasted - Tiesto ft. Matthew Koma

Speed: 112 bpm The DJ's Take: Sure, this isn't what people expect from Tiesto. But with summer right around the corner, not a bad track for a pool party, right? Nice and mindless - and if it catches on, you may get a reaction kind of like this . To stay key-compatible, try mixing with songs like White Walls , Wild Wild Love , and Get Lucky . And if you're looking to jump right into the 125 to 130 bpm range, let this play out and maybe jump into the opening strains of Wake Me Up . Download the song: Amazon: Wasted [feat. Matthew Koma]
