Disarm You - Kaskade ft. Ilsey

Speed: 128 bpm Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: Traditional buildup and drop, pounding percussion and resonating, buzzsaw-like synth - I like it. Danceable and fist-pumpable; worth a spin for your next EDM night, but probably not a Top 40 night, unless your crowd is all in with whatever you're doing. Try mixing with some or all of the following: Now That I've Found You - Martin Garrix , I'll House You (VIP Mix) - Don Diablo ft. Jungle Brothers , Virus (How About Now) - Martin Garrix ft. MOTi , Strong - R3HAB and KSHMR , What Do You Mean? - Justin Bieber , Wildest Dreams (R3hab Remix) - Taylor Swift , One Last Time - Ariana Grande , Time of Our Lives - Pitbull and NeYo , Fireball - Pitbull , Open Wide - Calvin Harris ,  Flashlight - R3hab & Deorro ,  #SELFIE - The Chainsmokers ,  Cannonball (Earthquake) - Showtek & Justin Prime ft. Matthew Koma ,  I Love It - Icona Pop ,  Animals - Martin Garrix ,  Under Control - Calvin Harris &a

Ex's & Oh's - Elle King

Speed: 140 bpm The DJ's Take: Catchy hook, distinctive voice, and a swaying rock beat with a little edge - feels like a potential hit. I could picture this playing in a jeans commercial or a promo for a provocative TV show featuring recently divorced 40 year old cougars. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like the following: Where Are Ü Now - Skrillex & Diplo ft. Justin Bieber , Feeling Myself - Nicki Minaj , Lips Are Movin - Meghan Trainor ,  X - Chris Brown ,  Can't Hold Us - Macklemore and Ryan Lewis ,  Day N Nite - Kid Cudi , Big Pimpin - Jay-Z , Feel This Moment - Pitbull Download the song: Amazon: Ex's & Oh's

Where Ya At - Future ft. Drake

Speed: 81 bpm The DJ's Take: Don't know about you, but I think we need a little more harp in hiphop. Also, I have almost no idea what Future is saying other than 'where ya ass was at.' Probably best suited for an urban hiphop club night, unless it makes a move up the pop charts. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like the following: No Games - Big Sean ft. Chris Brown & Ty Dolla $ign , Just Kickin' It - Xscape , Always Be My Baby - Mariah Carey , Down and Out - Cam'ron , Cheers (Drink To That) - Rihanna , We Go Down - Krewella Download the song: Amazon: Where Ya At [Explicit] , Where Ya At [Clean]
