Sun Is Shining - Axwell ^ Ingrosso

Speed: 132 bpm The DJ's Take: Back when the Double Rainbow guy was getting all emotional , something like this song was probably blasting in his head. Jumpability factor is high during the buildup and drop; I could picture it going over well during a festival. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with some or all of the following: Beautiful Now - Zedd , Together - Calvin Harris , That High - Pitbull ,  Noche No Termina - Pitbull ,  Wake Me Up - Avicii ,  Don't You Worry Child - Swedish House Mafia ,  P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing) ,  Gangnam Style - PSY ,  Starships - Nicki Minaj ,  Without You - David Guetta ft. Usher ,  Mr. Saxobeat - Alexandra Stan ,  Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 ,  Who's That Chick - David Guetta ft. Rihanna ,  Yeah 3X - Chris Brown ,  Only Girl in the World - Rihanna ,  Sexy Bitch - Akon ,  Meet Me Halfway - Black Eyed Peas ,  Down - Jay Sean ,  Disturbia - Rihanna , Hotel Room Service - Pitbull Download the song: Amazon: Sun

Classic Man - Jidenna ft. Roman GianArthur

Speed: 94 bpm The DJ's Take: So is this the refined gentleman's version of Fancy ? Definitely a similar feel with the beats. As the video shows, this is a chorus a crowd can sing along to - I give it my unofficial seal of approval. Try mixing with tracks like Dance Like We're Making Love - Ciara , Lean On - Major Lazer and DJ Snake , Tonight (Best You Ever Had) - John Legend , Let Me Love You - Mario , Girls Around The World - Lloyd ft. Lil Wayne , Magnificent - Rick Ross , and Left, Right - YG . Download the song: Amazon: Classic Man [Explicit]

Got Your Back - T.I. ft. Keri Hilson

tempo: 74 bpm bpm range:   70 bpm  to  75 bpm the DJ’s Take:  The artificial accordion makes me think of Paris and pirate ships . Never really became a hit, but a decent representation of 2010-era hiphop, and possesses a level of majesty that should keep things moving on a pop night. Most importantly, a lengthy list of key-compatible tracks to mix or mash up with: Crank That - Soulja Boy BedRock - Young Money ft. Lloyd All Night - The Vamps & Matoma Broccoli - D.R.A.M. ft. Lil Yachty Low Life - Future + The Weeknd RGF Island - Fetty Wap Blood On the Money - Future Trophies - Drake Give Me A Try - Sizzla Bottoms Up - Trey Songz Boyfriend #2 - Pleasure P Say My Name Obsesion (No Es Amor) - Frankie J featuring Baby Bash download or stream the song: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Can't Feel My Face - The Weeknd

Speed: 108 bpm Recommended bpm range:   105  to  110 bpm The DJ's Take: Well whaddaya know - The Weeknd can go a little uptempo. And he kinda sounds like Michael Jackson, right? It's like finding out a person who you thought was really serious can smile once in awhile. And when they do, they become a little more intriguing. On a side note, will this song spawn a dance that's like a combo of Carlton from Fresh Prince and Deshawn Stevenson's old three point celebration ? Wouldn't shock me. If you're staying key-compatible and don't want too much of a bpm gap, try mixing with tracks like Somebody - Natalie La Rose ft. Jeremih and Whistle - Flo Rida .
