Buscando Huellas - Major Lazer ft. J Balvin, Sean Paul

tempo: 108 bpm bpm range:   105  to  110 bpm the dj's take:  Fun little cross-pollination of genres - a little Latin, and a little dancehall with Sean Paul. Major Lazer music can keep a party going, and I wouldn't hesitate to drop this at an ethnic cookout or dance night. Could also be a nice change of pace on a hiphop night. Solid list of key-compatible tracks to mix or mash up with: In the 103-104 bpm range: Nothin' On You - B.o.B ft. Bruno Mars Buried In Detroit (Lucas Löwe Remix) - Mike Posner ft. Big Sean And from 105 to 110 bpm: Friend of Mine - Avicii What Lovers Do - Maroon 5 ft. SZA Havana - Camila Cabello ft. Young Thug Yeah! - Usher ft. Lil Jon & Ludacris Fade - Kanye West Truffle Butter - Nicki Minaj download or stream the song: amazon itunes

My Way - Fetty Wap ft. Monty

tempo: 64 bpm bpm range:   60 bpm  to  65 bpm The DJ's Take: If we're ranking songs called My Way, I'm giving this one the edge over Usher: A former Top 10 hit , and the hook should inspire a singalong for the Fetty fans in the crowd. Try mixing / mashing up with: Bad and Boujee - Migos ft. Lil Uzi Vert That's What I Like - Bruno Mars Believer - Imagine Dragons Devastated - Joey Bada$$ Pull Up - Wiz Khalifa Grass Ain't Greener - Chris Brown Antidote - Travis Scott My Way - Fetty Wap Dark Horse - Katy Perry Ghosts N Stuff - deadmau5 download or stream My Way: amazon spotify playlist

So Far Away - Martin Garrix & David Guetta ft. Jamie Scott & Romy Dya

tempo: 74-75 bpm bpm range:   70 bpm  to  75 bpm the dj's take: Song title may as well be about how far away this is from your run-of-the-mill 128 bpm edm. Probably best employed in a festival or recorded set. Long list of key-compatible tracks to mix with: Hard To Love - Calvin Harris ft. Jessie Reyez Boys - Charli XCX Sorry Not Sorry - Demi Lovato Do What I Want - Lil Uzi Vert 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 A-YO - Lady Gaga Spaceships - Area21 Blast Ya - Borgore ft. Barrington Levy download or stream So Far Away: amazon spotify playlist

In The Night - The Weeknd

tempo: 112 bpm bpm range: 110 to 115 bpm The DJ's Take:  Major Michael Jackson vibes - if you're doing choreography for this one, go heavy on the fedoras and finger snaps. Decent hit when it came out in 2015, and should still work on a Top 40 night. A couple key-compatible tracks between 105 and 110 bpm: Can't Feel My Face - The Weeknd Light It Up (Remix) - Major Lazer Bang My Head - David Guetta ft. Sia & Fetty Wap And a few more from 110 to 115: Secrets - The Weeknd CAN'T STOP THE FEELING! - Justin Timberlake In The Night - The Weeknd I Love You - Axwell /\ Ingrosso Adventure of a Lifetime - Coldplay Rockin' - The Weeknd This One's For You - David Guetta ft. Zara Larsson download or stream In The Night: itunes amazon
