Waiting For Love - Avicii

Speed: 128 bpm Recommended bpm range:   125  to  130 bpm The DJ's Take: The piano adds some depth and musicality, and the lead-up into the drop has that early 90s 8- and 16-bit video game soundtrack feel. A nice piece for your next soundcloud mix; drop down to around 125 bpm and you should be able to integrate with most of the following: Hey - Fais ft. Afrojack Sweet Harmony - Dubvision DADDY - PSY Another You - Armin Van Buuren ft. Mr. Probz Cool - Alesso Get Outta My Way - Kylie Minogue Honey I'm Good - Andy Grammer La La La - Naughty Boy ft. Sam Smith Pompeii - Bastille , Invincible - Borgeous Dear Boy - Avicii I Could Be the One (Avicii vs Nicky Romero) [Nicktim - Radio Edit] - Single - Avicii & Nicky Romero The Other Side - Jason Derulo Alive - Krewella The Veldt - EP - deadmau5 Kids - MGMT Download or stream the song: Spotify playlist Apple Music iTunes

Secrets - Tiësto and KSHMR

Speed: 128 bpm Recommended bpm range:   125  to  130 bpm The DJ's Take: Straight fist-pumping club music - save it for a festival or EDM-oriented event. Also not a bad track for the car if you're trying to re-enact Furious 7. For dj's looking to stay key-compatible, try mixing with: 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 Download or stream the song: Spotify playlist Apple Music Amazon

About You - Trey Songz

Speed: 102 bpm Recommended bpm range:   100  to  105 bpm The DJ's Take: For a second there, I thought Craig David was making a comeback. Solid track for a hiphop-oriented evening at a lounge; worth a download for the new music playlist. Bonus point for the the Carly Simon-inspired hook . If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like: You Know You Like It - DJ Snake and AlunaGeorge Worth It - Fifth Harmony Stuck On A Feeling - Prince Royce Electric Feel - MGMT Sexual Healing - Maxamillion Get Low - Lil Jon and the East Side Boyz Download or stream the song: Spotify playlist Apple Music Amazon

Watch Me (Whip / Nae Nae) - Silento

Speed: 70 bpm Recommended bpm range:   65 bpm  to  70 bpm ,  70 bpm  to  75 bpm The DJ's Take: Is this Rae Sremmurd's little cousin or something? If you're wondering what the demographic is, look up who's grooving to it on YouTube. This video tells me that Watch Me is appropriate for all ages, but probably best suited for the youth. All that said, I would just mix or mash up with Drunk In Love and drop the mic. Easy. Some other tracks worth mixing with: Grammys - Drake I Remember - AlunaGeorge Watch Me (Whip / Nae Nae) - Silento Drunk In Love - BeyoncĂ© Deuces - Chris Brown iSay - Wiz Khalifa ft. Juicy J Elevated - Wiz Khalifa Download or stream the song: Spotify playlist Apple Music Amazon
