Throwback Thursday: Let's Talk About Sex - Salt N Pepa



Speed: 107 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm, 105 to 110 bpm

The DJ's Take: A lot of the time, you play an older school track and wonder if the younger folk will remember it. No worries here - this is a classic that just about anyone should know and groove to. The above video features a toned down remix for some reason, but click the download links below and you'll get the right version.

If you're spinning in the 100 to 105 bpm range and want to stay key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like:

One Dance - Drake ft. Wizkid & Kyla
Colors - Halsey, Piece By Piece - Kelly Clarkson
Lose Yourself To Dance - Daft Punk
In My Room - Yellow Claw & DJ Mustard ft. Ty Dolla $ign & Tyga

If you're closer to 110, mixing or mashing up with Downtown - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis or Victorious - Panic! At The Disco could sound interesting.

Time to Pretend - MGMT

tempo: 101 bpm The DJ's Take: Track #5 in mix #62 (8:05): I wanted to go a little off-beat in this mix, step outside traditional pop and hiphop, and this one fit the bill. A little on the louder side, and I didn't want to drown out the previous song with the screeching riff at the beginning, so we brought the volume down a little: Bound to bring out the inner-hippie in a crowd; worth a spin for a change of pace. Some key-compatible music from 100 to 105 bpm: Classic - The Knocks ft. Powers Too Close - Next Levitating - Dua Lipa ft.
