Sober - G-Eazy ft. Charlie Puth

tempo: 96 bpm bpm range:   95  to  100 bpm the dj's take: Illmatic it ain't, but if you're spinning rap for a pop crowd, this is a pretty solid option. Catchy hook, relatable lyrics, a danceable beat, and artists everyone will likely recognize. Try mixing / mashing up with: You're All I Need To Get By - Method Man ft. Mary J. Blige Find Your Love - Drake What's My Name - Rihanna ft. Drake Galway Girl - Ed Sheeran Alive - Sia Talk Dirty - Jason Derulo Do What U Want - Lady Gaga Hold On, We're Going Home - Drake It Girl - Pharrell Opposite of Adults - Chiddy Bang download or stream Sober: amazon spotify playlist

Last Christmas - Wham!

tempo: 107 bpm bpm range:   105  to  110 bpm the dj's take:  Just like All I Want For Christmas Is You , this one's a seasonal staple. Perfect music if you're spinning for a holiday party at the local senior center: Worth a permanent spot in any December-themed playlist. Try mixing with: LoveGame - Lady Gaga Madiba Riddim - Drake Sleeping With A Friend - Neon Trees Nasty Boy - Notorious BIG Shots - Imagine Dragons Midnight City - M83 download or stream Last Christmas: amazon spotify playlist

All I Want Is You - Miguel ft. J. Cole

tempo: 97 bpm bpm range:   95  to  100 bpm The DJ’s Take: The shuffling drums remind me of Amy Winehouse's You Know I'm No Good . Solid, laidback track for a hiphop / r&b - themed set. And if you've got Miguel fans in the crowd, expect a possible singalong to ensue. If you're between 92 and 95 bpm, try mixing with: Locked Away - R. City ft. Adam Levine And from 95 to 100: Colors - Halsey Post To Be - Omarion ft. Chris Brown & Jhené Aiko F**kin' Problems - A$AP Rocky Lose Yourself To Dance - Daft Punk download or stream All I Want Is You: amazon itunes

Him & I - G-Eazy & Halsey

tempo: 88 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: So G-Eazy called this a Bonnie & Clyde type song in an interview , which reminded me of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's 03 Bonnie & Clyde : Similar bpm and key, so there's a nice little mashup possibility. Try it out on a pop night and see what happens. Some other tracks worth mixing with: 4:44 - Jay-Z 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 Him & I: amazon itunes

Tell Me You Love Me - Demi Lovato

tempo: 82 bpm bpm range:   80 bpm  to  85 bpm the dj's take: When it comes to music video weddings with a twist, I'm riding with We Belong Together: That said, it should work just fine as background music on a pop night. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with: Plain Jane - A$AP Ferg Dirty Sexy Money - David Guetta The Way Life Goes - Lil Uzi Vert Walk It Out - Unk Redbone - Childish Gambino Family Feud - Jay-Z ft. Beyoncé Black Widow - Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora Reaper - Sia download or stream Tell Me You Love Me: amazon spotify playlist
