No Money - Galantis

Speed: 126 bpm Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: Very catchy vocals and a bright, dance-able beat. I don't see why this can't become a hit, outside of luck or indifferent marketing. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing or making a mashup with tracks like:

Car Radio - twenty one pilots

Speed: 65 bpm Recommended bpm range: 60 bpm to 65 bpm , 65 bpm to 70 bpm The DJ's Take: Is it safe to say that when a song's been out for a couple years, and suddenly jumps to just outside the Top 50 on iTunes, it was probably recently featured on a tv show or ad? No idea if that's the case here, but it's my only explanation. I like the buildup and ultimate peak, but if you're spinning this, consider cutting out before the singer starts screaming. If you're closer to 70 bpm, try mixing with tracks like:

YOUTH - Troye Sivan

Speed: 92 bpm Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm The DJ's Take: Pretty fitting that a video for a song about youth features a guy who's 20 and looks like he's 14. Has an upbeat, ethereal feel, and it's doing well on the pop charts by almost any measure.

Watch Me Do - Meghan Trainor

Speed: 112 bpm Recommended bpm range: 110 to 115 bpm The DJ's Take: Not a bad follow-up to NO . Maybe a little generic, but this is dance-able urban-y R&B that should play well earlier on in a pop set. If you're around 108-110 bpm, try mixing or mashing up with tracks like: I Wish (My Taylor Swift) - The Knocks & Matthew Koma Feel Right - Mark Ronson ft. Mystikal Peaches N Cream - Snoop Dogg Get Down On It - Kool & The Gang Trouble - Iggy Azalea ft. Jennifer Hudson Doing It - Charli XCX ft. Rita Ora Jump Around - House of Pain Let's Get Blown - Snoop Dogg ft. Pharrell Download the song: iTunes Amazon
