No Tears Left To Cry - Ariana Grande

tempo: 122 bpm bpm range:   120  to  125 bpm the dj's take: Still can't understand ~72% of what she sings. If you told me this was the latest single from one of those k-pop girl groups with some English jibberish mixed in, I'd probably believe it. Also kinda brings to mind Carry On My Wayward Son. Might make a fun mashup: Anyway, you know the deal - get this in the rotation a.s.a.p. Try mixing with: One Kiss - Calvin Harris ft. Dua Lipa Kids In Love - Kygo Faking It - Calvin Harris ft. Kehlani, Lil Yachty Instruction - Jax Jones ft. Demi Lovato Supercut - Lorde Hype - Dizzee Rascal & Calvin Harris Shades of Grey - Oliver Heldens & Shaun Frank ft. Delaney Jane Prayer In C - Lilly Wood & The Prick and Robin Schulz Right Round - Flo Rida Intoxicated - Martin Solveig & GTA Higher Place - Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ft. NeYo download or stream No Tears Left To Cry: amazon spotify playlist itunes

No Diggity - Blackstreet ft. Dr. Dre, Queen Pen

tempo: 89 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: One of the most timeless and versatile tracks of the 90s. If your crowd isn't yelling out the chorus at some point, there's something wrong with them. Another reason to like No Diggity (via wikipedia ): Try mixing with: Crying In The Club - Camila Cabello Throw It In The Bag - Fabolous Cheap Thrills - Sia Ridin Solo - Jason Derulo Take On Me (Kygo Remix) - a-ha Should've Been Us - Tori Kelly Stereo Hearts - Gym Class Heroes download or stream No Diggity: amazon itunes

Chun-Li - Nicki Minaj

tempo: 97 bpm bpm range:   95  to  100 bpm the dj's take: Other than Dhalsim's stretchy arms, I think the most annoying move in Street Fighter II may be the Chun Li toe tap upside the head: The video game equivalent of death by a thousand paper cuts. I miss the 90s. As for the track, nothing too notable in the beat; standard club fare. Certainly worth a spin considering the artist and the buzz, at least in the short-term. Try mixing with: Plug Walk - Rich The Kid Love Me Harder - Ariana Grande, The Weeknd Como Antes - Yandel ft. Wisin ILY2 - Charli XCX Juicy - Notorious BIG We Don't Talk Anymore - Charlie Puth & Selena Gomez Shape Of You - Ed Sheeran Roses - The Chainsmokers Hip Hop Hooray - Naughty By Nature Cool - Daya Love Yourself - Justin Bieber I'm Up - Omarion STARVING - Hailee Steinfeld & Grey ft. Zedd Rack City - Tyga Touch - Nick Jonas Going Back To Cali - Notorious BIG Trillmatic - A$AP Mob HeadBand - B.o.B N

Magenta Riddim - DJ Snake

tempo: 102 bpm bpm range:   100  to  105 bpm the dj's take: Outside of those 128 bpm edm tracks, this is probably the first instrumental-only track we've covered in awhile (unless you count the scatting). Strong Bollywood vibes, which could bring the house down in the right environment. Go to the 17:00 mark in this mix to hear how it could sound in the proper context: Some other key-compatible tracks: Freaky Friday - Lil Dicky ft. Chris Brown Particula - Major Lazer A Different Way - DJ Snake ft. Lauv Let Me Go - Hailee Steinfeld, Alesso, Florida Georgia Line, watt Goodies - Ciara This Is How We Do It - Montell Jordan The Cure - Lady Gaga Stay - Zedd, Alessia Cara Get Busy - Sean Paul Work From Home - Fifth Harmony Finesse - Bruno Mars Body Moves - DNCE That’s My Girl - Fifth Harmony We Can (feat. Tory Lanez) - Kranium #BDAY - Tank ft. Chris Brown, Siya, Sage The Gemini I'm Sayin' - Omarion Working For It - ZHU & Skrillex & THE
