See You Again - Wiz Khalifa (ft. Charlie Puth)

tempo: 80 bpm bpm range:  75 bpm  to  80 bpm ,  80 bpm to 85 bpm The DJ's Take: Maybe the biggest song of 2015, with a hook that made Charlie Puth a star. Should have a lengthy shelf life as a throwback. Although when it comes to staying power, can anything beat Civil War hardtack? A couple key-compatible tracks from 80 to 85 bpm: Gotta Lotta - 2 Chainz ft. Lil Wayne The Heart Wants What It Wants - Selena Gomez And from 75 to 80 bpm: High End - Chris Brown ft. Future, Young Thug rockstar - Post Malone, 21 Savage We Did It - AREA21 Knock You Down - Keri Hilson, Kanye West, NeYo I Need A Doctor - Dr. Dre ft. Eminem Welcome to Jamrock - Damian Marley Stick Talk - Future Myself - NAV Reminder - The Weeknd Bounce - 2 Chainz ft. Lil Wayne Come & Get It - Selena Gomez download or stream See You Again: spotify playlist iTunes amazon

Bills - LunchMoney Lewis

Speed: 126 bpm Recommended bpm range:   120  to  125 bpm ,  125  to  130 bpm The DJ's Take: I don't know about you, but this smells like a one-hit wonder to me. Doesn't initially seem like something that'd get people dancing (at least not seriously), but it's unique-sounding enough that maybe it'll resurrect the Charleston . If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like New Romantics - Taylor Swift , I Really Like You - Carly Rae Jepsen , Let Me Love You - NeYo , and California Gurls - Katy Perry . And if you want to dial up a couple bpm's, Part of Me - Katy Perry and I Wanna Go - Britney Spears could work too. Download or stream the song: Spotify playlist Apple Music Amazon

I Don't Like It, I Love It - Flo Rida ft. Robin Thicke and Verdine White

Speed: 118 bpm Recommended bpm range:   115  to  120 bpm The DJ's Take: For some reason, those whistles remind me of Shanice's I Love Your Smile . Don't know how big this will be, but does it matter? Highly infectious beat with a nice infusion of disco and Spanish flavor. I'd try mixing or mashing up with key-compatible tracks like Love Never Felt So Good - Michael Jackson , Motown Philly - Boyz II Men , Tik Tok - Ke$ha , and Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars . If you're making a slow assent into 125-130 bpm, some nice transition tracks could include I Really Like You - Carly Rae Jepse n , New Romantics - Taylor Swift , and Fireball - Pitbull .
