Filthy - Justin Timberlake

tempo: 97 bpm bpm range:   95  to  100 bpm the dj's take: That intro sounds like the opening strands of the theme for a big boss fight in a video game. Rest of the beat feels like Future Sex Love Sounds Part II. Good music for grinding or a slow, pronounced twerk. The buzz is palpable, so get it in the rotation and see what happens. Try mixing / mashing up with: La Modelo - Ozuna ft. Cardi B Particula - Major Lazer & DJ Maphorisa Closer - The Chainsmokers Don't - Ed Sheeran Mayores - Becky G ft. Bad Bunny Only You - 112 ft. Notorious BIG, Mase Selfish - Future, Rihanna Beware - Big Sean Up Down - T-Pain Beat It - Sean Kingston The Cure - Lady Gaga #BDAY - Tank ft. Chris Brown, Siya, Sage The Gemini I'm Sayin' - Omarion Working For It - ZHU & Skrillex & THEY Not For Long - B.o.B ft. Trey Songz Gust of Wind - Pharrell ft. Daft Punk We Can (feat. Tory Lanez) - Kranium Body Language - Kid Ink (feat. Usher & Tinashe) No Letti

You Be Love - Avicii

tempo: 125 bpm bpm range:   120  to  125 bpm ,  125  to  130 bpm the dj's take:  Even if you didn't know this was Avicii, those signature synths would give it away. I kind of like the buildup - like a more electronic Call Me Maybe (which would make a nice mix / mashup). Some other key-compatible tracks from 120 to 125 bpm: Please Don't Go - Mike Posner Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke ft. Pharrell My Way - Calvin Harris Good Girls Lie - Akon How Deep is Your Love - Calvin Harris + Disciples Talking Body - Tove Lo She Came To Give It To You - Usher Ghost Town - Adam Lambert And from 125 to 130 bpm: Again and Again - Basto The Time (Dirty Bit) - Black Eyed Peas OMG - Usher I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas Feel So Close - Calvin Harris Summer - Calvin Harris More - Usher Me Too - Meghan Trainor Give Me Your Love - Sigala ft. John Newman & Nile Rodgers Bouncybob - Martin Garrix +1 - Martin Solveig Be Right There - Diplo & Sleepy Tom How

Codeine Dreaming - Kodak Black ft. Lil Wayne

tempo: 78 bpm bpm range:   75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: Kind of an interesting beat - fit for a vampire invasion. Maybe keep it in your back pocket for next Halloween. Getting a good reaction on streaming, which makes it worth a spin in a hiphop set. Try mixing / mashing up with: Cheers - Rihanna Always Be My Baby - Mariah Carey Feel It Still - Portugal, The Man Location - Khalid Exchange - Bryson Tiller Back Up - DeJ Loaf ft. Big Sean Could also work with the middle part of Travis Scott's SICKO MODE . download or stream Codeine Dreaming: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Breathe - Jax Jones ft. Ina Wroldsen

tempo: 126 bpm bpm range:   125  to  130 bpm the dj's take: Good choice for an upscale club or a choreographed routine. Sounds a lot like  You Don't Know Me , so there's a solid mix / mashup option.
