Everybody - Logic

tempo: 110 bpm bpm range:   105  to  110 bpm ,  110  to  115 bpm ,  50  to  55 bpm ,  55  to  60 bpm the dj's take: Feels like this could've been a Kendrick Lamar track. Reminds me of You Owe Me , only more soulful. Getting a good reception on the streaming services, so why not give it a go on a hiphop night. Try mixing with the following: Heatstroke - Calvin Harris ft. Young Thug, Pharrell, Ariana Grande 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 Because Of You - NeYo The Hills - The Weeknd Or go with slower tracks like: Chanel - Frank Ocean Me Myself & I - G-Eazy ft. Bebe Rexha The Hills - The Weeknd download or stream the song: amazon spotify playlist apple music

Slow Hands - Niall Horan

tempo: 86 bpm bpm range:   85 bpm  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Feels like a more uplifting remix of twenty one pilots' Stressed Out . Has kind of a country / rock fusion feel, which may give it a boost below the Mason-Dixon line. Regardless, expect a pretty positive reception from the One Direction fans in your crowd. Some tracks worth mixing with around 82 to 83 bpm: Hold Up - Beyoncé Trumpets - Jason Derulo Wiggle - Jason Derulo And from 85 to 90 bpm: Just A Friend - Biz Markie Big Poppa - Notorious BIG Better - Meghan Trainor Ride of Your Life - Tinashe Pills N Potions - Nicki Minaj download or stream the song: amazon apple music

Beautiful - Akon ft. Colby O'Donis and Kardinal Offishall

tempo: 129 bpm bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm the DJ’s take:  Can't lie - this one still makes my toe tap. One of the bigger hits from the late 2000s, and a track that I spun on a regular basis when it came out. Easy to beat match, easy on the ears, and has an ethereal, timeless quality. Worth a long-term spot in the library. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing or mashing up with: Shots - LMFAO The Way You Move - Outkast Blame - Calvin Harris ft. John Newman Thinking About You - Calvin Harris I Need Your Love - Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding Va Va Voom - Nicki Minaj Titanium - David Guetta and Sia Turn Me On - David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj Where Have You Been - Rihanna In The Dark - DEV Don't Stop The Party - Black Eyed Peas Take Over Control - Afrojack ft. Eva Simons Where Them Girls At - David Guetta ft. Flo Rida & Nicki Minaj Backseat - New Boyz Judas - Lady Gaga Give Me Everything - Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo & Afrojack Till The World E

Airplanes - B.o.B ft. Hayley Williams of Paramore

tempo: 94 bpm bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm the DJ’s take:  An unconventional collabo that became a big hit in its day. Features a memorable chorus, and came out recently enough that it should still get a good reaction on a pop night. Wouldn't be surprised if your crowd sings along when the mood is right. Eclectic list of key-compatible tracks to mix / mash up with: Baby Baby Baby - TLC I Like Me Better - Lauv A Lie - French Montana, The Weeknd, Max B Cold Water - Major Lazer ft. Justin Bieber Cheap Thrills - Sia Never Give Up - Sia Ridin Solo - Jason Derulo Find Your Love - Drake Flashing Lights - Kanye West Replay - IYAZ Take On Me (Kygo Remix) - a-ha Renée - Lost Boyz Stand By You - Rachel Platten Should've Been Us - Tori Kelly You Be Killin Em - Fabolous It Girl - Pharrell Magic - Coldplay Stereo Hearts - Gym Class Heroes You're All I Need - Method Man & Mary J. Blige Opposite of Adults - Chiddy Bang download or stream the song: amazo

Right Round - Flo Rida

tempo: 125 bpm bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm the DJ’s take: Flo Rida in his prime and an uncredited hook from Ke$ha - can't do much better than that. Should get a solid reception on a pop night, especially if your crowd is amenable to throwbacks. Try mixing with some key-compatible tracks in the scroll-down box below: Boom Boom Pow! - Black Eyed Peas Hype - Dizzee Rascal & Calvin Harris This Is What You Came For - Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna Intoxicated - Martin Solveig & GTA Higher Place - Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ft. NeYo Shades of Grey - Oliver Heldens & Shaun Frank ft.

Mirrors - Justin Timberlake

tempo: 77 bpm bpm range:   75 bpm  to  80 bpm the DJ's take: Interesting perspective from a 2013 article in Vibe - Mirrors is something of a 'new-age wedding reception song.' What's unique is the versatility; there's sentiment there, but there's also a beat you can dance to. Worth a long-term spot in the rotation. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with the songs in the scroll-down box below: Power - Kanye West ft. Dwele All The Above - Maino ft. T-Pain Chains - Nick Jonas Man Down - Rihanna Purple Reign - Future Turnin Me On - Keri Hilson Rockin That Thang - The Dream Can't Tell Me Nothing - Kanye West Flexicution - Logic Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio This Is Why I'm Hot - MIMS download or stream the song: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Knock You Down - Keri Hilson ft. Ne-Yo and Kanye West

tempo: 77 bpm bpm range:   75 bpm  to  80 bpm the DJ’s take:  Put three stars from the late 2000s together over a sweeping beat and you've got a hit . Built to be blasted over a big speaker system, and worth dropping if you're spinning slower pop. If you're operating at a bpm in the high 70s, try mixing or mashing up with: I Need A Doctor - Dr. Dre ft. Eminem Welcome to Jamrock - Damian Marley See You Again - Wiz Khalifa Stick Talk - Future If you're in the low 80s, try going with: Myself - NAV Reminder - The Weeknd Bounce - 2 Chainz ft. Lil Wayne Gotta Lotta - 2 Chainz ft. Lil Wayne Party - Beyoncé Come & Get It - Selena Gomez download or stream the song: spotify playlist apple music itunes

Levels - Avicii

tempo: 126 bpm bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm the DJ's take:  One of the rare vocal-free singles that became an international smash. A true crossover - bangs on an edm night, during a festival, or on a pop night. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with the songs in the scroll-down box below: Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais Remix) - Lana Del Rey Good Feeling - Flo Rida Pound The Alarm - Nicki Minaj The Night Is Still Young - Nicki Minaj I Will Never Let You Down - Rita Ora Addicted To You - Avicii Die Young - Ke$ha The Only Way Is Up - Martin Garrix & Tiesto Dare You - Hardwell Calling (Lose My Mind) [Radio Edit] [feat. Ryan Tedder] - Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso City of Dreams (feat. Ruben Haze) - Dirty South & Alesso download or stream the song: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Do What I Want - Lil Uzi Vert

tempo: 70 bpm bpm range:   65 bpm  to  70 bpm ,  70 bpm  to  75 bpm the dj's take:  The song title reminds me of that teenaged girl who yelled 'I do what I want!' on Maury Povich back in the day . Trippy beat that thumps + a palpable online buzz make it worth a spin during a hiphop or free-form set. Key-compatible tracks in the 65 to 70 bpm range (scroll down in the box below): Gyalchester - Drake Bad Things - Machine Gun Kelly, Camila Cabello Ain't My Fault - Zara Larsson Sorry - Beyoncé Sledgehammer - Rihanna Pop Style - Drake waves - Miguel ft. Travis Scott Shake It Off - Mariah Carey Pop That - French Montana Iz U Down - Kid Ink No Option - Kid Ink From 70 to 75 bpm: Biking - Frank Ocean ft. Jay-Z, Tyler The Creator Light My Body Up - David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne Changed It - Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne Heavy - Linkin Park ft. Kiiara Six Feet Under - The Weeknd Sidewalks - The Weeknd Tell Your Friends - The Weeknd Spaceships

Quit - Cashmere Cat ft. Ariana Grande

tempo: 67-68 bpm bpm range:   65  to  70 bpm the dj's take: Has a far eastern feel to it; expect this song to used in plenty of contemporary or ethnic dance recitals. And if you're a father, make sure your daughter has the earmuffs on when she listens (or give her the edited version). Upbeat enough that it should get some traction in the coming weeks. From 65 to 70 bpm: RGF Island - Fetty Wap Say My Name - Destiny's Child In the low 70's: All Night - The Vamps & Matoma Broccoli - D.R.A.M. ft. Lil Yachty Low Life - Future + The Weeknd Blood On the Money - Future Trophies - Drake Give Me A Try - Sizzla Boyfriend #2 - Pleasure P Crank That - Soulja Boy download or stream the song: amazon apple music

Another Life - Afrojack, David Guetta ft. Ester Dean

tempo: 72-73 bpm bpm range:   70 bpm  to  75 bpm the dj's take: Get Ariana Grande on the vocals, and it's a guaranteed hit. Still, you've got two major names and a big, bold drop.

Thunder - Imagine Dragons

tempo: 84 bpm bpm range:   80 bpm  to  85 bpm the dj's take: Feels like a heavier version of Stay With Me . And if it gains some traction, why not integrate it into OKC Thunder pre-game intros ?
