Back to Earth - Steve Aoki ft. Fall Out Boy

Speed: 128 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm

The DJ's Take: Key-wise and feel-wise, this reminds me of both Journey's Separate Ways and Bon Jovi's Livin On A Prayer. Interesting mix/mashup potential there; I'll let you figure that out next time you're spinning for a middle-aged Caucasian crowd. Personally, I kind of like the idea of rock-infused EDM - definite headbanging / moshpit potential in the right environment. Try mixing with some or all of the following:

Secrets - Tiƫsto and KSHMR, Summer - Calvin Harris, Feel So Close - Calvin Harris, I Cry - Flo Rida, Feel This Moment - Pitbull, Day 'N' Nite (Remix) - Kid Cudi, Let's Go - Calvin Harris and NeYo, We'll Be Coming Back - Calvin Harris
