The Sound - The 1975

Speed: 121 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm, 120 to 125 bpm

The DJ's Take: Sounds like background music for an 80s rom com or a ballet / contemporary dance recital, although the iTunes charts indicate people are downloading it. In any case, if you're spinning at around 120 bpm, try mixing or doing a mashup with tracks like Prayer in C (Robin Schulz Remix), Adore - Jasmine Thompson, Safe and Sound - Capital Cities, Bad Romance - Lady Gaga, and Don't You Want Me - The Human League. If you're closer to 125, Higher Place - Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike should work.
