Easy Love - Sigala

Speed: 124 bpm Recommended bpm range: 120 to 125 bpm , 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: Kind of strange to hear ABC sped up that much. Then again, Kanye made a living speeding up notable vocals before he went off the deep end. Gotta be in the right mood to listen to this (i.e. super sugar high), but it's got some traction and may appeal to a younger crowd. Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like: 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 , Waiting For Love - Avicii , 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 the song: iTunes: Easy Love - Si

Be Right There - Diplo & Sleepy Tom

Speed: 125 bpm Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm   The DJ's Take: For those who don't remember, the lyrics to this song come from the 90s hit Don't Walk Away , which was in heavy rotation on my local hipPop radio station back in seventh grade. Couldn't imagine having to dance to this; I'd probably need about five Red Bulls, a deep tissue massage, and a Viagra. On a side note, apparently a guy named 'Sleepy Tom' co-produced this. Oh the irony. Worth a spin if your crowd's up for a workout - try mixing or mashing up with tracks like How Deep Is Your Love - Calvin Harris + Disciples , Secrets - Tiësto and KSHMR , Summer - Calvin Harris , Feel So Close - Calvin Harris , I Cry - Flo Rida , Let's Go - Calvin Harris and NeYo , and We'll Be Coming Back - Calvin Harris . Download the song: iTunes: Be Right There - Diplo & Sleepy Tom Amazon: Be Right There

Adventure of a Lifetime - Coldplay

Speed: 112 bpm Recommended bpm range: 110 to 115 bpm The DJ's Take: Nice little piece of easy listening adult contemporary you can groove to. In fact, isolate that beat and I swear I've heard something like it playing quietly in a hotel lobby. Made a fast jump into the Top 10 on iTunes, so maybe it'll have some staying power. Try mixing or mashing up with Bang My Head - David Guetta ft. Sia & Fetty Wap and Can't Feel My Face - The Weeknd . Download the song: iTunes: Adventure of a Lifetime - Coldplay Amazon: Bang my Head (feat. Sia & Fetty Wap)

Working For It - ZHU & Skrillex & THEY

Speed: 100 bpm Recommended bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm The DJ's Take: Just listening to this makes me feel a little cooler. We actually covered it in the last edition of the newsletter , and I think it's worth a download for the new music portion of your program. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with Saved - Ty Dolla $ign ft. E-40 , This Is How We Do It - Montell Jordan , Not For Long - B.o.B ft. Trey Songz , Body Language - Kid Ink (feat. Usher & Tinashe) , Gust of Wind - Pharrell ft. Daft Punk ,  Bend Ova - Lil Jon ,  Recess - Skrillex , No Letting Go - Wayne Wonder ,  Get Busy - Sean Paul , Up Down - T-Pain , and/or  Hold Yuh - Gyptian . Download the song: iTunes: Working for It - ZHU x Skrillex x THEY. Amazon: Working For It

Stick Talk - Future

Speed: 80 bpm Recommended bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm The DJ's Take: Trap with an injection of country and dashes of Kill Bill - I kinda like it. Guessing this is at least warm (if not hot) in Atlanta, and probably would be best employed on a hiphop night. Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like Bounce - 2 Chainz ft. Lil Wayne , See You Again - Wiz Khalifa , Welcome to Jamrock - Damian Marley , and Knock You Down - Keri Hilson ft. NeYo and Kanye West . Bump up a couple bpm's and Big Things Poppin - T.I. could work. Download the song: iTunes: Stick Talk - Future Amazon: Stick Talk [Explicit]

Hide Away - Daya

Speed: 95 bpm Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm The DJ's Take: Hard-hitting beat, vocalist with a distinct accent, and a notable hook - if you spin pop, this is worth a download. Try mixing or mashing up with Sit Still, Look Pretty - Daya , Again - Fetty Wap , 679 - Fetty Wap , Style - Taylor Swift , Jealous - Nick Jonas , Good Thing (feat. Nick Jonas) - Sage the Gemini , Diamonds - Rihanna ,  Adorn - Miguel ,  Candy Rain - Soul For Real , and  Check The Rhime - A Tribe Called Quest . Download the song: iTunes: Hide Away - Daya Amazon: Hide Away

Me, Myself & I - G-Eazy & Bebe Rexha

Speed: 56 bpm Recommended bpm range: 55 bpm to 60 bpm The DJ's Take: When it comes to songs called Me, Myself & I, I'm still going with De La Soul (and female R&B fans will likely go with Beyoncé ). Not bad though. Try mixing with The Hills - The Weeknd . And if you're trying to brighten things up, half-time into Want To Want Me - Jason Derulo , Cool For The Summer - Demi Lovato , Fun - Pitbull ft. Chris Brown , Treasure - Bruno Mars , In My Head - Jason Derulo , Because Of You - NeYo , Am I Wrong - Nico & Vinz and International Love - Pitbull ft. Chris Brown . Download the song: iTunes: Me, Myself & I - G-Eazy & Bebe Rexha Amazon: Me, Myself & I [Explicit]

I'll Show You - Justin Bieber

Speed: 48 bpm Recommended bpm range: 45 bpm to 50 bpm The DJ's Take: Unless you're providing ambiance music, I'd avoid playing this at a live gig. But mashups and mixes would make sense, considering the buzz this one's generating. If you're feeling a little unconventional, try half-timing with tracks like Out of the Woods - Taylor Swift , This Is How We Do - Katy Perry , Na Na - Trey Songz , Paranoid - Ty Dolla $ign , One More Chance - Notorious BIG , and No Games - Serani . Download the song: iTunes Amazon

Bang My Head - David Guetta ft. Sia & Fetty Wap

Speed: 108 bpm Recommended bpm range: 105 to 110 bpm The DJ's Take: Definitely a festive, danceable vibe that could do well in a Top 40 bar setting. I'd give it a trial spin or two at some point this weekend; may be a solid part of the rotation for at least the next few weeks. Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like Can't Feel My Face - The Weeknd , Somebody - Natalie La Rose ft. Jeremih , and Whistle - Flo Rida . Download the song: iTunes: Bang My Head (feat. Sia & Fetty Wap) - David Guetta Amazon: Bang my Head (feat. Sia & Fetty Wap)
