On My Way - Axwell ^ Ingrosso

Speed: 128 bpm The DJ's Take: With spring break and music festivals on the horizon, I'm guessing this'll get you some brownie points with a younger crowd. Pretty danceable and fist-pumpable, and worth a spot in your EDM playlist. If you're looking to stay key-compatible, try mixing/mashing up with tracks like I Want You To Know - Zedd ft. Selena Gomez , Light Years Away (feat. DBX) - Tiesto ,  The Days - Avicii ,  Prayer In C - Lilly Wood & The Prick and Robin Schulz ,  Lay Me Down - Avicii ,  Adore You - Miley Cyrus (Cedric Gervais Remix) ,  Ten Feet Tall - Afrojack ,  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 ,  F*ck You - Ceelo Green ,  Push It - Salt N Pepa ,  U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer , and  Right Round - Flo Rida . Download the song: Amazon: On My Way

Peaches N Cream - Snoop Dogg ft. Charlie Wilson

Speed: 110 bpm Recommended bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm , 105 to 110 bpm The DJ's Take: In the wake of the Blurred Lines verdict , shouldn't Kool & The Gang sue Snoop Dogg for this blatant ripoff of Get Down On It ? I'm only half-kidding; as ignorant as I am on the law and the facts, seems like Kool & The Gang would have a much better case. That said, who cares - this track is a fun little throwback to an era when many of today's pop fans weren't even born yet. Some key-compatible tracks worth mixing/mashing up with include Watch Me Do - Meghan Trainor , I Wish (My Taylor Swift) - The Knocks & Matthew Koma , Feel Right - Mark Ronson ft. Mystikal , Get Down On It - Kool & The Gang , Trouble - Iggy Azalea ft. Jennifer Hudson , Doing It - Charli XCX ft. Rita Ora , and Let's Get Blown - Snoop Dogg ft. Pharrell . And if you're feeling frisky, why not throw in Jump Around - House of Pain . Download the song: Amazon: Peaches N Cr

The Blacker The Berry - Kendrick Lamar

Speed: 88 bpm Recommended bpm range:   85 bpm  to  90 bpm The DJ's Take: If Dr. Dre made The Chronic 2015, this beat would be a modern nod to the original . Hard west coast sound you can blast in the car. Worth a spot on your main playlist, especially if you spin hiphop. In the 90 bpm range, try mixing or mashing up with tracks like Beg For It - Iggy Azalea , Feel Me Flow - Naughty by Nature , and Just a Dream - Nelly . In the 85 bpm range, this could work with singles like Energy - Drake , Black Widow - Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora , Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys , and Rude Boy - Rihanna .
