Shut Up And Dance - WALK THE MOON

Speed: 128 bpm The DJ's Take: I don't know what to make of this one - a little hokey, but it's getting a little too popular to ignore, right? Probably a lock for the Footloose 2 soundtrack, whenever Hollywood gets lazy enough to get that one done. If you're okay slowing down to around 124 or 125 bpm, this could be a nice little key-compatible mix/mashup with Sugar - Maroon 5 . Worth a download for Top 40 and mobile dj's with upcoming prom gigs. Download the song: Amazon: Shut Up and Dance

Fairly Local - twenty one pilots

Speed: 58 bpm The DJ's Take: Pretty sure if this was a hiphop beat, it'd be a hit. Booming, stadium-friendly sound - worth a spot in a mixtape, and doing well on iTunes, so someone's listening somewhere. I'd mix with Only - Nicki Minaj , especially because the bpm's match up and the sound is similarly ominous (plus, people should know that one if they're giving you blank stares over this). If you want to brighten the vibe a bit, try double-timing with tracks like Poison - Bel Biv Devoe , Billie Jean - Michael Jackson , C O O L - Le Youth , and Get Lucky - Daft Punk .
