WIEE - Martin Garrix

Speed: 128 bpm Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: Just when you thought 128 bpm EDM was dead... On a side note, that WIEE sound kinda reminds me of the old ICQ uh oh . In any event, probably better suited for a festival or an electronic night. Try mixing with key-compatible tracks like: If It Ain't Love - Jason Derulo Home - Firebeatz & Jay Hardway Sunglasses At Night - Corey Hart Sugar - Robin Schulz ft. Francesco Yates Fire Burning - Sean Kingston Shut Up and Dance - WALK THE MOON Download or stream the song: Key and bpm-compatible Spotify playlist Apple Music Amazon

Don't Wanna Know - Maroon 5 ft. Kendrick Lamar

Speed: 100 bpm Recommended bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm , 100 to 105 bpm The DJ's Take: So I guess Sia wasn't available for this one? Anyway, when Maroon 5 is jumping on the electro-trop-pop bandwagon, you know the trend is reaching its peak. Worth a spin in the earlier part of a pop night as you build up to your bigger tracks. If you're in the 95 to 100 bpm range, try mixing with key-compatible songs like: Feel No Ways - Drake Company - Justin Bieber Misery - Gwen Stefani Show Me - Kid Ink Animals - Maroon 5 Survival of the Fittest - Mobb Deep You And Your Friends - Wiz Khalifa If you're in the 100 to 105 bpm range, try mixing with: Toothbrush - DNCE Don't Need Nobody - Ellie Goulding BeFoUr - ZAYN , Team - Iggy Azalea Nobody Has To Know (Major Lazer & KickRaux Remix) - Kranium ft. Ty Dolla $ign Player - Tinashe This Summer's Gonna Hurt... - Maroon 5 , Sledgehammer - Fifth Harmony L.A. Love (La La) - Fergie Turn Down For What

Replay - IYAZ

tempo: 92 bpm bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm the DJ’s take: Light, breezy pop-reggae-dancehall hybrid that was a legit hit in the early 2010s . Will it age well? Tough to say. A little saccharine in my opinion. But it's wholesome, bouncy, and uplifting, which should work for a wider range of audiences. Worth a throwback slot in a Top 40 playlist. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with: Sigo Extrañándote - J Balvin Cold Water - Major Lazer ft. Justin Bieber Cheap Thrills - Sia Never Give Up - Sia Ridin Solo - Jason Derulo Airplanes - B.o.B Find Your Love - Drake Flashing Lights - Kanye West Replay - IYAZ Baby Baby Baby - TLC Take On Me (Kygo Remix) - a-ha Renée - Lost Boyz Stand By You - Rachel Platten Should've Been Us - Tori Kelly You Be Killin Em - Fabolous It Girl - Pharrell Magic - Coldplay Stereo Hearts - Gym Class Heroes You're All I Need - Method Man & Mary J. Blige Opposite of Adults - Chiddy Bang download or stream t

Believer - Major Lazer

Speed: 72.5 bpm Recommended bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm The DJ's Take: Seems like almost every Major Lazer track is a thumper, and this one continues the trend. Should fit right in at a club, loud bar, or a frat party. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like:

Trust Nobody - Cashmere Cat, Tory Lanez, Selena Gomez

Speed: 118 bpm Recommended bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm The DJ's Take: Beat almost sounds like Pick Up The Phone after 7 Red Bulls. Softer percussion that feels better-suited for a couples dance class than a Top 40 night, but the artists make it worth a spin in the warmup portion of a pop set. Try mixing with key-compatible tracks like:
