Paris - The Chainsmokers

Speed: 100 bpm Recommended bpm range:   95  to  100 bpm ,  100  to  105 bpm The DJ's Take: Are we sure there isn't some upcoming movie about two American exchange students who meet fortuitously at the Louvre and fall in love? Because I nominate this as the featured song during the montage where they romp around the Eiffel Tower and other notable local landmarks. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like: Kids - OneRepublic I'm In Control - AlunaGeorge Perfect (Matoma Remix) - One Direction Cheyenne - Jason Derulo Shots - Imagine Dragons Classic - The Knocks Sleeping With A Friend - Neon Trees Midnight City - M83 Alejandro - Lady Gaga LoveGame - Lady Gaga Nasty Boy - Notorious BIG Download or stream the song: Spotify playlist Apple Music iTunes Amazon

Throwback Thursday: I Need A Doctor - Dr. Dre ft. Eminem

Speed: 78 bpm Recommended bpm range:  75 bpm  to  80 bpm The DJ’s Take:  Pretty good workout music, especially if you're pumping iron. Worth playing at a sporting event or on a hiphop night in a more casual bar setting. Try mixing with tracks like: Welcome to Jamrock - Damian Marley See You Again - Wiz Khalifa Stick Talk - Future Knock You Down - Keri Hilson ft. NeYo and Kanye West Party - BeyoncĂ© Download or stream the song: Spotify playlist Apple Music iTunes

No Lie - Sean Paul ft. Dua Lipa

Speed: 102 bpm Recommended bpm range:   100  to  105 bpm The DJ's Take: A party isn't a party without a fridge full of wine coolers and Sean Paul blasting out the speakers. This one should keep things moving earlier on as you transition into the bigger hits. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like:

The Mack - Nevada, Mark Morrison, Fetty Wap

Speed: 106 bpm Recommended bpm range:   105  to  110 bpm The DJ's Take: A 90s favorite over a trop pop beat - not sure how I feel about it. But if you're spinning for a younger crowd, not a bad way to bridge the generational gap. Solid list of key- & bpm-compatible tracks to mix with:
