To The Max - DJ Khaled, Drake

tempo: 160 bpm

bpm range: 155 to 160 bpm160 to 165 bpm75 bpm to 80 bpm80 bpm to 85 bpm

the dj's take: Well, looks like Officemax has the theme music for its next ad campaign. A frenetic pace that gets tribal in spots, then kind of goes dirty south / Miami club on you. Should play well in a workout class, a cheerleading competition, or a big scale college marching band routine. May be a little too fast for a gig, so pick your spots.

Could make an interesting mix / mashup with Happy - Pharrell. And if you want to keep the key unconventionally compatible, try going into:

Dirt Off Your Shoulder - Jay-Z
Best I Ever Had - Drake
Comin Out Strong - Future ft. The Weeknd
Love & War - Yellow Claw
Don't Mind - Kent Jones
Daydreamin' - Lupe Fiasco
Hello (Cover) - Conkarah & Rosie Delmah
I Can Transform Ya - Chris Brown
