American Boy - Estelle ft. Kanye West

tempo: 118 bpm bpm range:   115  to  120 bpm the dj's take: Today's the 10th anniversary of the release date, and it's a notable throwback. I remember dropping this a few times on my Top 40 nights, and the response was solid, especially from females. Has a refined electro sound with intermittent searing synths, which gives it the thump to keep people moving. Worth breaking out from time to time in a pop set. Try mixing with key-compatible tracks like: Nuh Ready Nuh Ready - Calvin Harris, PARTYNEXTDOOR Thriller - Michael Jackson Zero - Chris Brown Dynamite - Taio Cruz Black or White - Michael Jackson Just Dance - Lady Gaga Greenlight (feat. Flo Rida & LunchMoney Lewis) - Pitbull Maps - Maroon 5 Higher - Carly Rae Jepsen Love Lockdown - Kanye West Love You Like a Love Song - Selena Gomez & The Scene download or stream American Boy: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Hurt You - The Weeknd

tempo: 92 bpm bpm range:   90  to  95 bpm the dj's take: How did this not end up on one of those Fifty Shades of Grey soundtracks ? Feels like something you play in the car in the rain, contemplating a relationship gone wrong. Worth a spin in a lounge or a more laidback environment. Kind of a downer, but the understated percussion should keep things moving just enough. Try mixing with: Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding El Perdón - Nicky Jam, Enrique Iglesias Closer - The Chainsmokers Don't - Ed Sheeran Ride Out - Kid Ink, Tyga, YG, Wale & Rich Homie Quan download or stream Hurt You: itunes spotify playlist

The Pop Sampler 1.0

Took awhile, but I finally made a mix of 10 pop songs from one of our playlists . Only 15 minutes long, and it illustrates how you can turn the info on this site into something that sounds decent. I used Logic Pro to make this. Good app for creating your own beats or doing a clean, efficient dj mix. Pretty affordable too. Click here to check it out. Want to check out some more mixes?
