2U - David Guetta, Justin Bieber

tempo: 72-73 bpm bpm range:   70 bpm  to  75 bpm the dj's take:  At this point, a new Justin Bieber single is a trump card for a dj - keep it in reserve, then drop at a peak moment. The buildup lacks percussion, so expect people to stand around at times during a set. Should be a staple at his live concerts. Ultimate power move - mix or mash up with Kendrick Lamar's HUMBLE.  Two key-compatible mega-hits in a row will be your mic drop moment for the foreseeable future. Other songs worth mixing with: I Fall Apart - Post Malone Cry Me a River - Justin Timberlake Believer - Major Lazer, Showtek Everyday - A$AP Rocky ft. Rod Stewart She Knows - NeYo Whatcha Say - Jason Derulo Ridin' - Chamillionaire No Matter What - T.I. download or stream the song: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Help Me Out - Maroon 5 ft. Julia Michaels

tempo: 115 bpm bpm range: 110  to  115 bpm ,  115  to  120 bpm the dj's take: Better suited to set the mood than to get people dancing. Soon to be in the rotation at your local Starbucks or brick and mortar bookstore. I think the official video should be a montage of gif's like this: Try mixing with key-compatible tracks like: Heartless - Diplo ft. Morgan Wallen Vogue - Madonna Poker Face - Lady Gaga Just Hold On - Steve Aoki & Louis Tomlinson Ocean Drive - Duke Dumont The Way I Are - Timbaland ft. Keri Hilson Sun Models (feat. Madelyn Grant) - ODESZA download or stream Help Me Out: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Trumpets - Jason Derulo

tempo: 82 bpm bpm range: 80 bpm  to  85 bpm The DJ's Take: Forget the synthesized trumpets - we could all use a little more of the real thing: Still, this was a decent hit for Derulo , and for a pop crowd, it could qualify as some light-hearted nostalgia. Good list of key-compatible songs to mix with: The Story of OJ - Jay-Z Thunder - Imagine Dragons Big Poppa - Notorious BIG Just A Friend - Biz Markie M.I.L.F. $ - Fergie Hold Up - Beyoncé Stressed Out - twenty one pilots Trumpets - Jason Derulo Wiggle - Jason Derulo Pills N Potions - Nicki Minaj Down On Me - Jeremih ft. 50 Cent Dance (A$$) Remix - Big Sean ft. Nicki Minaj download or stream Trumpets: amazon spotify playlist

Mr. Saxobeat - Alexandra Stan

tempo: 127 bpm bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: If you've ever listened to this track, common sense says there's a wacky choreographed dance video out there. YouTube does not disappoint: Note the guy in the back with the big stick who's looking on indifferently at the beginning. Then eventually he comes around and starts tapping his foot. Proof positive that this beat is undeniable. Try mixing / mashing up with: Who's That Chick - Rihanna and David Guetta Hotel Room Service - Pitbull PYT - Michael Jackson Space Race - Sterling Mercury Freak - R3hab ft. Quintino FREE.K - Pitbull Break Through The Silence - Martin Garrix, Matisse & Sadko Children - Justin Bieber Beautiful Now - Zedd Together - Calvin Harris That High - Pitbull Noche No Termina - Pitbull Wake Me Up - Avicii Don't You Worry Child - Swedish House Mafia Starships - Nicki Minaj Without You - David Guetta ft. Usher Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 Only Girl

I Fall Apart - Post Malone

tempo: 72 bpm bpm range: 70 bpm  to  75 bpm the dj's take: Perfect song for a movie montage where the hero gets dumped. Then he's defiant to the tune of Cry Me a River , and finally moves on and puffs out his chest again as No Matter What blasts in the background. Now that's a three song key-compatible mix with some meaning. Apparently this is experiencing a resurgence over a tweet , so get it in the rotation and drop it at your next dive bar gig. You just might inspire a singalong of broken souls, which you can record and post on social media for likes and minimal revenue. Some other tracks to mix / mash up with: Whatcha Say - Jason Derulo 2U - David Guetta, Justin Bieber HUMBLE. - Kendrick Lamar Believer - Major Lazer, Showtek Everyday - A$AP Rocky ft. Rod Stewart She Knows - NeYo Ridin' - Chamillionaire download or stream I Fall Apart: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Pumped Up Kicks - Foster The People

tempo: 128 bpm bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm the DJ's take: If Foster The People ends up as a one-hit wonder, this is a good one to go out on. Chill beat that's perfect for a surfing video . On a side note, my mom got me a pair of Pumps in sixth grade, and squeezing that little orange basketball on the tongue became a daily ritual. Just trying to be like Dee Brown: As for the track, long list of key-compatible tracks to mix / mash up with: In The Dark - DEV Pump Up The Jam - Technotronic 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 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 Judas - Lady Gaga

Turn Down For What - DJ Snake ft. Lil Jon

tempo: 100 bpm bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm , 100 to 105 bpm The DJ's Take: Lil Jon makes everything a little more exciting, doesn't he? High level hook, and that drop is a certified riot starter. Unless you're a troll: Like running down to the living room Christmas morning expecting a Playstation... and getting socks and a cardigan. Some key-compatible tracks from 95 to 99 bpm: ELEMENT. - Kendrick Lamar I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me) - Jay-Z Feel No Ways - Drake Company - Justin Bieber Misery - Gwen Stefani Show Me - Kid Ink Animals - Maroon 5 Survival of the Fittest - Mobb Deep You And Your Friends - Wiz Khalifa Don't Need Nobody - Ellie Goulding This Summer's Gonna Hurt... - Maroon 5 And from 100 to 105: Extra Luv - Future, YG Mi Gente - J Balvin, Willy William, Beyoncé Extra Luv - Future, YG Toothbrush - DNCE BeFoUr - ZAYN Team - Iggy Azalea Nobody Has To Know (Major Lazer & KickRaux Remix) - Kranium ft. Ty Dolla

Rake It Up - Yo Gotti ft. Nicki Minaj

tempo: 75 bpm bpm range: 70 bpm  to  75 bpm ,  75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: Considering the lyrics and the artists, that video is about as wholesome as you could expect. Some outtakes from the raking scenes (awww...): As for the track, it's a legit hit fit for a pop or hiphop set. The percussion dominates, so this should sound fine with just about anything. But if you listen closely and can hear the key of the synth & bass, try mixing with: Jumpman - Drake & Future Mercy - Kanye West Deliver - Fifth Harmony Silence - Marshmello, Khalid How Low - Ludacris Bank Account - 21 Savage Butterfly Effect - Travis Scott Slippery - Migos ft. Gucci Mane No Frauds - Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne Feel Me - Tyga ft. Kanye West I Got The Keys - DJ Khaled Pony - Ginuwine Uber Everywhere - Madeintyo Wonderful - Travis Scott ft. The Weeknd Throw Sum Mo (feat. Nicki Minaj & Young Thug) - Rae Sremmurd Bad Girls - M.I.A. download or stream Rake I
