Running Back - Wale ft. Lil Wayne

tempo: 64 bpm bpm range:   60 bpm  to  65 bpm the DJ's take: Sounds better suited for the skateboard park or a space odyssey than the club. Worth a spot on a hiphop-oriented mixtape.

Trey Songz, Ty Dolla $ign, Jamie Foxx download or stream the song: Spotify playlist Apple Music iTunes

#tbt: Because of You - Ne-Yo

speed: 110 bpm bpm range:   105  to  110 bpm ,  110  to  115 bpm the dj’s take:  Strong MJ vibes here, and a high-level hit when it came out. Should get a good reaction in a club, and if you've got a groove going, this should maintain the momentum. Try mixing with: Heat Stroke - Calvin Harris Want to Want Me - Jason Derulo Hands To Myself - Selena Gomez Cool For The Summer - Demi Lovato Fun - Pitbull ft. Chris Brown Treasure - Bruno Mars In My Head - Jason Derulo The Hills - The Weeknd download or stream the song: spotify playlist apple music itunes amazon

Throwback Thursday: In Da Club - 50 Cent

Speed: 90 bpm Recommended bpm range:   85 bpm  to  90 bpm ,  90  to  95 bpm The DJ’s Take: It’s been a minute since this dropped like the meteor that killed the dinosaurs , and you still know the chorus. Should get a solid response, and you’ll get at least semi-regular requests to play this because it’s someone’s birthday. Fiddy’s career is essentially over, but his spirit will live on through this song. Consider mixing with: NO - Meghan Trainor No Mediocre - T.I. Boom Clap - Charli XCX Africa - Toto Drop It Like It's Hot - Snoop Dogg It Girl - Jason Derulo I Got To Have It - Ed OG Say Aah - Trey Songz In Da Club - 50 Cent Ooh! - Mary J.

Love On The Brain (Remix) - Rihanna, Don Diablo

Speed: 80 bpm Recommended bpm range:   75 bpm  to  80 bpm ,  80 bpm  to  85 bpm The DJ's Take:  A hard, loud remake of the original, which makes it spinnable on an electro-oriented pop night.

T-Shirt - Migos

tempo: 69.5 bpm bpm range:   65 bpm  to  70 bpm ,  70 bpm  to  75 bpm the DJ's take:  Nice little Revenant-themed video that gives me the sudden urge to go snowmobiling. Should keep things moving at the club on a hiphop night, and it definitely has appeal as a backing track for teenagers doing choreographed dances  on YouTube.
