On My Mind - Ellie Goulding

Speed: 78 bpm Recommended bpm range: 75 bpm to 80 bpm The DJ's Take: A strong pop beat that feels like it could've been an R&B or hiphop track. Should maintain the momentum in the weeks to come, so if you spin Top 40, I'd definitely download this. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing or mashing up with Black and Yellow - Wiz Khalifa . Download the song: Amazon: On My Mind

RGF Island - Fetty Wap

Speed: 69 bpm Recommended bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm   The DJ's Take: If you spin hiphop, this needs to be in your new music playlist as soon as possible. No gimmicks, no special dances - only the most recognizable voice in the game today riding a thumping, stadium-worthy beat. Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like Blood On the Money - Future , Trophies - Drake , Mirrors - Justin Timberlake , Give Me A Try - Sizzla , Bottoms Up - Trey Songz , BedRock - Young Money , Got Your Back - T.I. ft. Keri Hilson , All The Above - Maino , Boyfriend #2 - Pleasure P , Crank That - Soulja Boy , Say My Name , Man Down - Rihanna , Obsesion (No Es Amor) - Frankie J featuring Baby Bash , and Chains - Nick Jonas .

Love Myself - Hailee Steinfeld

Speed: 123 bpm Recommended bpm range: 120 to 125 bpm , 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: So are we just calling this The Masturbation Song ? The good news - it's a bouncy female empowerment anthem, which means the late teen to mid twenty-something demo should appreciate it. Could easily become a go-to track if you're active on the college circuit. Try mixing with tracks like the following: Rumors - Oliver Heldens ft. RUMORS , Lift Me Up - David Guetta , Whip It! - LunchMoney Lewis , Sweet Lovin' - Sigala , Won't Stop Rocking - R3hab & Headhunterz , Heaven - Shaun Frank & KSHMR , Poison - Martin Garrix , Break Free - Ariana Grande ft. Zedd , Five More Hours - Deorro x Chris Brown , Five Hours - Deorro , Born To Get Wild - Steve Aoki ft. , Hideaway - Kiesza , Kanye - The Chainsmokers , Red Lights - Tiesto , Helicopter - Martin Garrix & Firebeatz , Samurai (Go Hard) - R3hab , Love Me Again - John Newman , Wizard - Martin Garrix & Ja

Jaded - Disclosure

Speed: 117 bpm Recommended bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm The DJ's Take: Man, that percussion is tight. Makes me want to go do jumping jacks or something. Will it be a pop hit in the US? Probably not. But this could make some noise on a dance chart in some obscure European country. Anyway, I'm gonna go a little unconventional and recommend you mix this with tracks like How Will I Know - Whitney Houston , Girls Just Want to Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper , and I Wanna Dance With Somebody - Whitney Houston . Maybe not an exact match in key, but close enough to sound interesting. Download the song: Amazon: Jaded - Disclosure
