FLY - Marshmello

tempo: 67-68 bpm bpm range:   65 bpm  to  70 bpm the dj's take: Pretty sure this will be the background music in a slam dunk highlight video in the near future. Or maybe as an entrance theme for a younger MMA fighter. Probably better employed in a concert / festival setting or in a recorded electro set. Some other key-compatible tracks: No Hands - Waka Flocka Portland - Drake No Frauds - Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne Scared To Be Lonely - Martin Garrix, Dua Lipa Jigga What, Jigga Who - Jay-Z I Got The Keys - DJ Khaled Uber Everywhere - Madeintyo Might Not - Belly ft. The Weeknd Mercy - Kanye West download or stream FLY: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Everybody Hates Me - The Chainsmokers

tempo: 77-78 bpm bpm range:   75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take:  Some life advice from yours truly - whenever it feels like the walls are closing in and everybody hates you, take a deep breath and respond in a calm, mature manner: Feels good, right? You're welcome. As for the track, the percussion-less interludes make it tough to spin when there's a mandate to keep people moving. But if we're dealing with a concert or a gamers' convention, this should fit in just fine. Some other key-compatible singles to mix with: Saint - Huncho Jack, Travis Scott, Quavo Int'l Players Anthem (I Choose You) - UGK, Outkast You Da Baddest - Future, Nicki Minaj All Eyes On You - Meek Mill ft. Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown Live Your Life - T.I. ft Rihanna I'm On One - DJ Khaled Miss Me - Drake American Oxygen - Rihanna Messin' Around - Pitbull ft. Enrique Iglesias Touch My Body - Mariah Carey download or stream Everybody Hates Me: amazon s


tempo: 75 bpm bpm range:   70 bpm  to  75 bpm ,  75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take:  That song title makes me think of President Trump's tweets: Probably better suited for a younger, angstier crowd, but worth a try on a lower-key hiphop night. Long list of key-compatible tracks between 70 and 75 bpm: All Night - The Vamps & Matoma Broccoli - D.R.A.M. ft. Lil Yachty Low Life - Future + The Weeknd RGF Island - Fetty Wap Blood On the Money - Future Trophies - Drake Give Me A Try - Sizzla Bottoms Up - Trey Songz BedRock - Young Money Got Your Back - T.I. ft. Keri Hilson Boyfriend #2 - Pleasure P Crank That - Soulja Boy Say My Name - Destiny's Child Obsesion (No Es Amor) - Frankie J featuring Baby Bash And from 75 to 80 bpm: Man Down - Rihanna Back To You - Louis Tomlinson ft. Bebe Rexha & Digital Farm Animals Power - Kanye West All The Above - Maino ft. T-Pain Chains - Nick Jonas Mirrors - Justin Timberlake Purple Reign - Future

Contra - Logic

tempo: 63 bpm bpm range:   60 bpm  to  65 bpm the dj's take: I don't care if the title says 'no damage' - those Contra play-through videos on youtube still get the blood pumping: Nice. As for the track, has a southwestern vibe to it with the hazy guitars. Would be good background music for a road trip through a lonely stretch of Texas. Could sound interesting if you mix / mash up with  No Love - Eminem ft. Lil Wayne . download or stream Contra: amazon itunes

Flava In Ya Ear Remix - Craig Mack ft. Notorious B.I.G., LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, Rampage

tempo:  90 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm ,  90  to  95 bpm the dj's take: Flava In Ya Ear should be a street term for a  wet willy  after the perpetrator eats garlic. No idea who Craig Mack was outside of this hard-hitting hiphop classic, but if this is the most notable thing you've left behind in your lifetime, you've done alright. RIP . Should sound ok key-wise with: Despacito - Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, Justin Bieber Perfect Pint - Mike WiLL Made-It ft. Kendrick Lamar, Gucci Mane, Rae Sremmurd Tunnel Vision - Kodak Black Chainsaw - Nick Jonas Be As You Are (JordanXL Remix) - Mike Posner The Man - Aloe Blacc Royals - Lorde Paper Planes - MIA download or stream Flava In Ya Ear Remix: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Delicate - Taylor Swift

tempo: 95 bpm bpm range:   90  to  95 bpm ,  95  to  100 bpm the dj's take:  Had no idea this song existed until the video came out, but it fits right into the existing catalog. Sounds a lot like  Gorgeous  or a happier version of  Starboy . Should work well in a Top 40 set at the local college bar. Some other key-compatible tracks you can mix with: X (EQUIS) - Nicky Jam, J. Balvin These Days - Rudimental, Macklemore, Jess Glynne Stir Fry - Migos Suena El Dembow - Joey Montana, Sebasti├ín Yatra Pendulum - Katy Perry One More Chance (Remix) - Notorious BIG SUBEME LA RADIO - Enrique Iglesias All We Know - The Chainsmokers Back To Sleep - Chris Brown Out of the Woods - Taylor Swift This Is How We Do - Katy Perry Teaser - Tanto Metro & Devonte, Devonte & Tanto Metro Heads High - Mr. Vegas F.F.F. - Bebe Rexha, G-Eazy Otis - Jay-Z and Kanye West download or stream Delicate: amazon spotify playlist
