Throwback Thursday: Scenario - A Tribe Called Quest

Speed: 102 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm

The DJ's Take: One of the great party tracks of the 90s and 00s. I don't know if its ability to rock a room has dissipated over the years, but if you're spinning this weekend, at least pay a little tribute to the dude with the leadoff verse. RIP Phife Dawg.

If we're going key-compatible with the faint organ / keyboard, try mixing with tracks like:

Middle - DJ Snake
Picture Me Rollin' - Chris Brown
Alive - Sia
Ghost - Ella Henderson
2 On - Tinashe
Talk Dirty - Jason Derulo
Do What U Want - Lady Gaga
Hold On, We're Going Home - Drake
What's My Name - Rihanna
You - Lost Kings ft. Katelyn Tarver
