Kids - OneRepublic

Speed: 100 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm100 to 105 bpm

The DJ's Take: Sounds like a more refined form of 80s synth pop. Would add an invigorating couple of minutes to a roadtrip playlist, or a Top 40 set, considering the group and the solid initial reception it's getting on iTunes & Spotify. If you're around 102-103 bpm, try mixing with key-compatible tracks like:

I'm In Control - AlunaGeorge
Perfect (Matoma Remix) - One Direction
Cheyenne - Jason Derulo
Shots - Imagine Dragons
Classic - The Knocks
Sleeping With A Friend - Neon Trees
Midnight City - M83
Alejandro - Lady Gaga
LoveGame - Lady Gaga
Nasty Boy - Notorious BIG

If you're in the 95 to 100 bpm range, consider integrating with:

Same Old Love - Selena Gomez
What's The Difference - Dr. Dre
Nuthin' But A G Thang - Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg
Diamonds from Sierra Leone (Remix) [feat. Jay-Z] - Kanye West
679 - Fetty Wap, Style - Taylor Swift
Candy Rain - Soul For Real
Check The Rhime - A Tribe Called Quest
