Back to Back - Drake



Speed: 87 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 85 to 90 bpm

The DJ's Take: We all know the hype is coming from the beef with Meek Mill and the stinging lyrics. But to me, it's a slow, steady banger with a minimalist, older school feel. If you're spinning for a crowd that cares about hiphop, this should probably be in your rotation. Percussion is dominant here, so Back to Back should blend in with just about anything in the 85 to 90 bpm range.

But if you want to stay in the same key as those low synths, try mixing or mashing up with tracks like Energy - Drake, The Black The Berry - Kendrick Lamar, Black Widow - Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora, Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys, and Rude Boy - Rihanna.

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes

Stay - The Kid LAROI ft. Justin Bieber

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Song #9 in episode #65 of our mix show (22:29): Cool transition out of Scarface's Guess Who's Back ; loop that properly and you've got an interesting potential beat / mashup. And then we slide into T-Pain and Kehlani's I Like Dat to slow down the pace and take us into the home stretch. A must-spin for any pop dj - serves up a burst of bouncy energy for the youth who've been cooped up for awhile now.
