When Doves Cry - Prince



tempo: 126 bpm

bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm

the dj's take: If you spin 80s, there's no way you can leave this out of the rotation, right? An iconic song of the decade, and certainly worth breaking out from time to time in a pop or wedding set. And to think that it all revolves around a simple little 3 note keyboard / synth riff. Brings to mind a certain musical cat:

ROCKSTAR - DaBaby ft. Roddy Ricch

tempo: 90 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #1 in our chapter 51 mix (made in Logic Pro X ): Big bass, so I had to be strategic about where to transition out and into Rihanna's Work . A little more of an in-depth look, plus some thoughts on its shelf life in a dj's rotation: Bottom line, when nightlife at college bars picks up again, this will likely be in heavy rotation. Some other key-compatible tracks: Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft.

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes
