Throwback Thursday: Everything, Everyday, Everywhere - Fabolous

tempo: 95 bpm bpm range:   90  to  95 bpm ,  95  to  100 bpm the DJ’s take:  Another throwback from the late 2000s that a hiphop dj should keep in his / her back pocket. Not a bad song to spin a little earlier on in a set as people get settled. Two extensive lists of key-compatible tracks you can mix with: In the 95 to 100 bpm range: Water Under The Bridge - Adele The Greatest - Sia Let Me Love You - DJ Snake & Justin Bieber Sorry - Justin Bieber Try Me - Jason Derulo ft. Jennifer Lopez & Matoma Sexual Healing (Kygo Remix) - Marvin Gaye You Know You Like It - DJ Snake and AlunaGeorge Worth It - Fifth Harmony I'm Sprung - T-Pain Stuck On A Feeling - Prince Royce Sexual Healing - Maxamillion Get Low - Lil Jon and the East Side Boyz If you're in the 90 to 95 bpm range, try mixing with these songs: ...Baby One More Time - Britney Spears Capsize - FRENSHIP & Emily Warren Why You Always Hatin? - YG ft. Drake, Kamaiyah Kevin - Macklemore &am

The Ocean - Mike Perry ft. Shy Martin

Speed: 90 bpm Recommended bpm range: 85 bpm to 90 bpm , 90 to 95 bpm The DJ's Take: Feels like either a happy karaoke song or something you play around a bonfire at the beach. Doing well on the Spotify charts, and has a loping bounce that should get college kids' heads nodding. Try mixing with Good Morning - Kanye West and Wake Up - Fetty Wap . If you're closer to 95 bpm, try mixing with Genghis Khan - Miike Snow , Slow Motion - Trey Songz , Blank Space - Taylor Swift , and Back That Azz Up - Juvenile . Download or stream the song: Spotify playlist (songs with similar key & bpm) Apple Music iTunes Amazon

Club Can't Handle Me - Flo Rida

tempo: 129 bpm bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm the DJ’s take: Is it just me, or does this sound like an electro-version of that Kings of Leon song Use Somebody ? That said, it was the lead track for the movie Step Up 3D , which I believe won a couple Oscars, so that’s something. A fun relic of a bygone era when every single was 128 bpm pop edm. About as bouncy as it gets; worth a spin as an energetic throwback. Try mixing with key-compatible songs like: Spotless - Martin Garrix, Jay Hardway Hold On & Believe - Martin Garrix Slave To The Rhythm - Michael Jackson Birthday - Katy Perry Timber - Pitbull Play Hard - David Guetta Sweet Nothing - Calvin Harris Super Bass - Nicki Minaj Paradise - Benny Benassi and Chris Brown Waiting - Oliver Heldens & Throttle More Than Ever - Breathe Carolina & Ryos Do You Remember - Jay Sean ft. Sean Paul & Lil Jon Something New - Axwell ^ Ingrosso download or stream the song: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Hard - Rihanna ft. Young Jeezy

tempo: 91 bpm bpm range:   90  to  95 bpm the DJ’s take:  First off, I'd like to thank Rihanna for her service. No need to wait till Veterans' Day. And a fun background fact: when interviewed about the video , she described the theme as 'couture-military.' Guess that never really caught on, but don't be surprised if the local army-navy store becomes a hot spot to shop in the near future. As for the song, probably not making the cut for her Greatest Hits album. But it's decent filler on a pop night, and there are some good key-compatible tracks to mix into (see scroll-down box below): Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Remix) - Kanye West ft. Jay-Z Nuthin But A G Thang - Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg The Way I Are (Dance With Somebody) - Bebe Rexha ft. Lil Wayne Perfect Pint - Mike WiLL Made-It Waterfall - Stargate, P!nk, Sia Despacito (Remix) - Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, Justin Bieber LUV - Tory Lanez Sit Still, Look Pretty - Daya Hide Away - Daya Again -
