A Different Way - DJ Snake ft. Lauv

tempo: 105 bpm bpm range: 100  to  105 bpm ,  105  to  110 bpm the dj's take: One of the more distinctive drops in recent memory - definitely goes in an unexpected direction (gold star to anyone who can decipher what that voice is scatting). Worth a spin on a pop or electronic night. Btw, if you're curious about the guy behind the sunglasses, here he is in an entertaining episode of Hot Ones: Long list of key-compatible tracks from 100 to 105 bpm: Let Me Go - Hailee Steinfeld, Alesso, Florida Georgia Line, watt Goodies - Ciara This Is How We Do It - Montell Jordan The Cure - Lady Gaga Stay - Zedd, Alessia Cara Get Busy - Sean Paul Work From Home - Fifth Harmony Finesse - Bruno Mars Body Moves - DNCE That’s My Girl - Fifth Harmony We Can (feat. Tory Lanez) - Kranium #BDAY - Tank ft. Chris Brown, Siya, Sage The Gemini I'm Sayin' - Omarion Working For It - ZHU & Skrillex & THEY Saved - Ty Dolla $ign ft. E-40 Not For Long - B.o.B

Échame La Culpa - Luis Fonsi, Demi Lovato

tempo: 96 bpm bpm range:   95  to  100 bpm the dj's take:  A big beat with a sharp bounce, and notable artists - feels like a hit to me. The combination of Spanish & English should make this pretty playable in any setting. Get it in the rotation immediately. Good list of key-compatible tracks to mix / mash up with: Corazón - Maluma ft. Nego do Borel Run Me Dry - Bryson Tiller Sua Cara - Major Lazer Chained To The Rhythm - Katy Perry ft. Skip Marley Daddy Yo - WizKid Old Thing Back - Matoma & Notorious BIG ft. Ja Rule & Ralph Tresvant This Is How We Do - Katy Perry Shoop - Salt N Pepa Na Na - Trey Songz Paranoid - Ty Dolla $ign download or stream Échame La Culpa: amazon spotify playlist

Curve - Gucci Mane ft. The Weeknd

tempo: 74 bpm bpm range: 70 bpm  to  75 bpm the dj's take: If the Blackberry Curve had ever become a thing, this would've been a pretty good theme song for a tv commercial. As it is, I'd make that beat the background music for the next Metroid video game: Anyway, two major names on a single you can dance or chill to - worth a spot in the rotation. Try mixing / mashing up with: Drunk In Love - Beyoncé Grammys - Drake, Future Watch Me (Whip / Nae Nae) - Silento Ni**as In Paris - Jay-Z, Kanye Deuces - Chris Brown iSay - Wiz Khalifa ft. Juicy J Light Years - Yellow Claw Malibu - Miley Cyrus download or stream Curve: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Blocks - Marshmello

tempo: 71 bpm bpm range:   70 bpm  to  75 bpm the dj's take: Listener discretion advised - the bass in the drop is like an electric force field that may twist your brain into a pretzel. Sort of feels like Dead Prez's Hip Hop : Some key-compatible tracks from 70 to 75 bpm: Locked Out Of Heaven - Bruno Mars All I Do Is Win - DJ Khaled Handsome And Wealthy - Migos Holy Grail - Jay-Z ft. Justin Timberlake Marry You - Bruno Mars First Day Out - Kodak Black Gucci On My - Mike WiLL Made-It, 21 Savage, YG, Migos And between 65 and 70: MotorSport - Migos, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B Versace (Remix) - Migos ft.

All Falls Down - Alan Walker ft. Noah Cyrus with Digital Farm Animals

tempo: 98 bpm bpm range:   95  to  100 bpm the dj's take: Noah Cyrus sounds a lot like her sister, doesn't she? Good bounce and energy in the beat - if I were assembling widgets in a futuristic factory, listening to this would definitely improve my productivity. On a side note, if we're ranking songs called 'All Falls Down,' this is still #2 to Kanye: Try mixing with: Colors - Halsey Locked Away - R. City ft. Adam Levine Post To Be - Omarion ft. Chris Brown & Jhené Aiko F**kin' Problems - A$AP Rocky download or stream All Falls Down: amazon itunes

Bank Account - 21 Savage

tempo: 75 bpm bpm range: 70 bpm  to  75 bpm ,  75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: That guitar makes me think of Spain or a spaghetti western. Soothing beat that should work on a hiphop night, at a tapas spot, or in a Bank of America commercial. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing or mashing up with: Silence - Marshmello, Khalid Rake It Up - Yo Gotti ft. Nicki Minaj Deliver - Fifth Harmony How Low - Ludacris Butterfly Effect - Travis Scott Jumpman - Drake & Future 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.
