Draco - Future

speed: 65 bpm bpm range:   60 bpm  to  65 bpm ,  65 bpm  to  70 bpm the DJ's take: If you combined cough syrup and Christmas, I imagine it'd sound like this. Trippy, festive, and there's enough thump in the percussion to keep things moving on a hiphop night. Could sound good in a mashup with tracks like: MIDDLE CHILD - J. Cole Halfway Off The Balcony - Big Sean Caroline - Aminé download the song: iTunes

Reminder - The Weeknd

tempo: 80 bpm bpm range:   75 bpm  to  80 bpm ,  80 bpm  to  85 bpm the DJ's take:  Cold and detached beat, but definitely something you can nod your head to.
