Nothing Wrong - G-Eazy

tempo: 80 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm ,  80 bpm  to  85 bpm the dj's take: Has a throwback feel to it; good music for the street corner, a house party, or if you're driving around the hood in your Civic trying to look hard. Worth a spin on a hiphop night. Strong list of key-compatible hits to mix with: Bad Blood - Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar Shake It Off - Taylor Swift I'm The One - DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Chance The Rapper, Quavo Love On The Brain (Remix) - Rihanna, Don Diablo Just Like Fire - Pink Wicked - Future I Need A Girl - Trey Songz Go Hard Or Go Home - Wiz Khalifa download or stream the song: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Perfect Places - Lorde

tempo: 103 bpm bpm range:   100  to  105 bpm the dj's take:  Feels like this should be the theme song for a travel show geared toward teenagers. Heavy percussion, and rich piano & synths make this a good choice for a concert or festival set. Pretty sure Lorde fans won't be disappointed. And in case you were wondering where the lyrics came from, Genius has the inside scoop from the artist herself . Interesting look at the story behind the song. Key-compatible tracks to mix or mash up with between 100 and 105 bpm: Party On The West Coast - Matoma Turn Me On - Kevin Lyttle Are You Sure? - Kriss Kross Amsterdam ILY2 - Charli XCX Slide - Calvin Harris, Frank Ocean, Migos Touch - Little Mix Mo Money, Mo Problems - Notorious BIG STARVING - Hailee Steinfeld & Grey ft. Zedd Roses - The Chainsmokers We Don't Talk Anymore - Charlie Puth & Selena Gomez Hip Hop Hooray - Naughty By Nature Touch - Nick Jonas Going Back To Cali - Notorious BIG Love

No Hands - Waka Flocka ft. Wale and Roscoe Dash

tempo: 66 bpm bpm range: 65 bpm  to  70 bpm the DJ’s take: Apparently still one of Rob Gronkowski's favorite songs , and a frat party anthem. Maybe a little outdated, but I could still see this getting a good reaction at a college bar. Worth a spin as a hype-the-crowd throwback. If you're between 65 and 70 bpm, try mixing with key-compatible tracks like: Portland - Drake No Frauds - Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne Scared To Be Lonely - Martin Garrix, Dua Lipa Jigga What, Jigga Who - Jay-Z I Got The Keys - DJ Khaled Uber Everywhere - Madeintyo Might Not - Belly ft. The Weeknd Mercy - Kanye West If you're around 71: Jumpman - Drake & Future Feel Me - Tyga ft. Kanye West Pony - Ginuwine Throw Sum Mo (feat. Nicki Minaj & Young Thug) - Rae Sremmurd download or stream the song: amazon itunes

I'm Goin In - Drake ft. Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm , 85 bpm to 90 bpm the DJ’s take: Production on this reminds me of the dungeon music from Final Fantasy on the original Game Boy. Should go over well in a high school football locker room, within a group of spies before a big mission, or among a dentist and his / her hygienists before a root canal. Not exactly key-compatible, but if you're between 80 and 85 bpm, try mixing with: Sure Thing - Miguel Golden - Travie McCoy ft. Sia Talk That Talk - Rihanna And between 85 and 90 bpm: Crying In The Club - Camila Cabello Throw It In The Bag - Fabolous Cheap Thrills - Sia Ridin Solo - Jason Derulo Take On Me (Kygo Remix) - A-Ha Should've Been Us - Tori Kelly Stereo Hearts - Gym Class Heroes download or stream the song: amazon itunes

Unforgettable - French Montana, Swae Lee

tempo: 98 bpm bpm range:   95  to  100 bpm the dj's take:  Never expected anything hip-swayingly danceable from French Montana, but this fits the bill. Should get the job done on a pop or hiphop night. Interesting video from Genius on the making of the beat: If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with: Swalla - Jason Derulo Touchin, Lovin - Trey Songz Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Focus - Ariana Grande Me & U - Cassie download or stream the song: amazon apple music

Fuck You - CeeLo Green

tempo: 128 bpm bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm the DJ’s take: A '50s sound you can spin in a modern pop set - I'm in. Went as high as #2 on the Billboard charts in 2010, and that hook is probably the most popular expression in the English language, which should prompt a singalong more often than not. Worth a spin as a throwback or in a freeform Top 40 set. Fun wikipedia fact: In an interview , CeeLo says the 'girl' in the song represents the music industry. Sounds like a real firecracker to me. Long list of key-compatible tracks to mix or mash up with: Supercut - Lorde I'm In Miami Bitch - LMFAO Right Round - Flo Rida Boom Boom Pow! - Black Eyed Peas Intoxicated - Martin Solveig & GTA Higher Place - Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ft. NeYo Lay Me Down - Avicii Can't Feel My Face (Martin Garrix Remix) - The Weeknd Never Leave - DVBBS Don't Look Down - Martin Garrix ft. Usher On My Way - Axwell ^ Ingrosso I Want You To Know - Zedd ft. Se

4:44 - Jay-Z

tempo: 89 bpm bpm range: 85 bpm  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Someone needs to explain that video to me; ~7 minutes of it went right over my head. That said, I couldn't stop watching. As for the track, another memorable soul sample to back one of the biggest public apologies in recent memory. Classy. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with: Slow Hands - Niall Horan 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 itunes

Like A Prayer - Madonna

tempo: 112 bpm bpm range: 110  to  115 bpm   the DJ’s take: Remember when this was the most controversial song in the country ? I was in elementary school, and it was all over the news. Now it's a staple of weddings and 80s nights. Deserves a permanent spot in the throwback playlist, and should get a good reaction (especially from females) for years to come. Try mixing with key-compatible tracks like: Motown Philly - Boyz II Men Shining - DJ Khaled, Jay-Z, BeyoncĂ© Get Ugly - Jason Derulo Grenade - Bruno Mars Just The Way You Are - Bruno Mars download or stream the song: amazon itunes

Young Dumb & Broke - Khalid

tempo: 68-69 bpm bpm range: 65 bpm  to  70 bpm the dj's take: Seems like in pop culture and song / movie titles, adjectives come in three's: the good, the bad, and the ugly , the hot, the cool and the vicious , young, wild and free , and fat, drunk and stupid: Add this song to the list. Should work on a pop or more laidback hiphop night, especially with a younger crowd. On a side note, Khalid sounds like Hozier , doesn't he? Or maybe it's the other way around. Anyway, if you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with: Beat It - Michael Jackson What If - Kevin Gates T-Shirt - Migos Real Chill - Rae Sremmurd ft. Kodak Black ??? (Where) - Ty Dolla $ign 1st Day Out Da Feds - Gucci Mane Bake Sale - Wiz Khalifa ft. Travis Scott Kiss Kiss - Chris Brown ft. T-Pain TKO - Justin Timberlake Jump Out The Window - Big Sean download or stream the song: amazon itunes

Teach Me How To Dougie - Cali Swag District

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range: 80 bpm  to  85 bpm ,  85 bpm  to  90 bpm the DJ’s take: At one point, this may have been the biggest song in the country. And it still bangs. Quick reminder of the influence this track had: Should work in a wide variety of environments. And because it's all percussion, you can mix with almost anything within 5 bpm's. Worth a permanent spot in the rotation. download or stream the song: amazon itunes
