Close - Nick Jonas ft. Tove Lo

Speed: 62 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 60 bpm to 65 bpm

The DJ's Take: If I'm doing a contemporary dance recital with a strapping young lass in matching black leotards, this is my song. Probably not ideal in a club-type setting where energy is important, but worth a spin in a laid-back bar environment. Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like Bad (Remix) - Wale ft. Rihanna, Fairly Local - twenty one pilots, and It Won't Stop - Sevyn Streeter ft. Chris Brown.

If you need to pick up the pace, try half-timing into Fast Car - Jonas Blue, Say My Name - ODESZA, Poison - Bel Biv Devoe, Billie Jean - Michael Jackson, C O O L - Le Youth, and Get Lucky - Daft Punk.
