Throwback Thursday: Forgot About Dre - Dr. Dre ft. Eminem



Speed: 67 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 65 bpm to 70 bpm

The DJ's Take: Classic beat off a classic album. Even though most of your crowd was probably in elementary school when this came out, there's a timelessness that still gets heads nodding. Deserves a permanent spot in your hiphop playlist.

Try mixing with tracks like Often - The Weeknd, GDFR - Flo Rida, Inside Out - The Chainsmokers, Private Show - TI ft. Chris Brown, and Rap God - Eminem or half-timing into Cupid Shuffle - Cupid or Applause - Lady Gaga.

Drop a couple bpm's and you could even half-time into tracks like:

Ghost - Oliver Heldens ft. RUMORS
Lift Me Up - David Guetta
Whip It! - LunchMoney Lewis
Sweet Lovin' - Sigala
Won't Stop Rocking - R3hab & Headhunterz
Heaven - Shaun Frank & KSHMR
Poison - Martin Garrix
Love Myself - Hailee Steinfeld
Break Free - Ariana Grande ft. Zedd
Five More Hours - Deorro x Chris Brown
Five Hours - Deorro
Don't Wake Me Up - Chris Brown
Born To Get Wild - Steve Aoki ft. will.i.am
Hideaway - Kiesza
Kanye - The Chainsmokers
Red Lights - Tiesto
Helicopter - Martin Garrix & Firebeatz
Samurai (Go Hard) - R3hab
Love Me Again - John Newman
Wizard - Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway
Revolution - R3hab & Nervo & Ummet Ozcan
Scream & Shout - will.i.am and Britney Spears
Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO
Count On Me - Chase & Status
Scream - Usher, Hey Brother - Avicii
Glad You Came - The Wanted

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes

Stay - The Kid LAROI ft. Justin Bieber

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Song #9 in episode #65 of our mix show (22:29): Cool transition out of Scarface's Guess Who's Back ; loop that properly and you've got an interesting potential beat / mashup. And then we slide into T-Pain and Kehlani's I Like Dat to slow down the pace and take us into the home stretch. A must-spin for any pop dj - serves up a burst of bouncy energy for the youth who've been cooped up for awhile now.
