Don't Matter To Me - Drake, Michael Jackson

tempo: 103 bpm bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm the dj's take: Feels more like a Michael Jackson track featuring Drake. The beat almost shimmers; sounds like a hit to me. By the way, I think it's also worth mentioning that Michael's sister once did a song called Doesn't Really Matter: They're a family of nihilists , I tell ya! #dadjoke Try mixing with key-compatible tracks like: Havana - Camila Cabello Truffle Butter - Nicki Minaj ft. Drake & Lil Wayne Don't Quit - DJ Khaled, Calvin Harris, Travis Scott, Jeremih Nothin' On You - B.o.B ft. Bruno Mars Obsession - Vice ft. Jon Bellion No More Sad Songs - Little Mix ft. Machine Gun Kelly Buried In Detroit (Lucas Löwe Remix) - Mike Posner ft. Big Sean I Took A Pill In Ibiza (Seeb Remix) - Mike Posner Yeah! - Usher ft. Lil Jon & Ludacris Right Hand - Drake Fancy (Yellow Claw Remix) download or stream Don't Matter To Me: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Narcos - Migos

tempo: 62-63 bpm bpm range:   60 bpm  to  65 bpm the dj's take: Dope sample that's worth a listen on its own: Hard not to get down to, even with my increasingly creaky joints. Anyway, seems like almost any new single from Migos gets the people going, so drop it in a club or bar set and see what happens. Could sound interesting with: Only - Nicki Minaj ft. Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown UnFazed - Lil Uzi Vert ft. The Weeknd Really Really - Kevin Gates Whole Lotta Lovin - DJ Mustard ft. Travis Scott download or stream Narcos: amazon itunes

Gust Of Wind - Pharrell Williams ft. Daft Punk

tempo: 100 bpm bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm , 100 to 105 bpm The DJ's Take: Last song in our internationally acclaimed Beat Salad mix (starts around 27:37): Normally you figure Pharrell and Daft Punk with a touch of Hans Zimmer would generate a little more buzz. Didn't happen. Although apparently it was a favorite during the album listening party ( via uproxx ): I wish someone would invite me to a high-profile listening party... A boy can dream, right? Some key-compatible tracks from 100 to 105 bpm: Magenta Riddim - DJ Snake 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) - Kra

Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding

tempo: 95 bpm bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm , 95 to 100 bpm The DJ's Take: Track #3 in our 'bedtime magic' mix (starts around 4:14): Maybe the most popular song in the history of this website, and a big hit when it came out. Feels more like something for a romantic night in as opposed to a pop gig, but may be worth a spin in public as background music. Some key-compatible tracks from 90 to 95 bpm: Nice For What - Drake Hurt You - The Weeknd El Perdón - Nicky Jam, Enrique Iglesias Closer - The Chainsmokers Don't - Ed Sheeran Ride Out - Kid Ink, Tyga, YG, Wale & Rich Homie Quan And from 96 to 100 bpm: Particula - Major Lazer 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 Fo

Telephone - Lady GaGa ft. Beyoncé

tempo: 122 bpm bpm range: 120 to 125 bpm the DJ’s take: Song #5 in our '21 and done' mix (starts at 9:13): Collabos between megastars usually work out, and this one was no exception. Went up to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the easy-to-recognize vocalists and catchy hook should still get a good reaction. Worth a long-term spot in your recent throwback playlist. On a side note, is there such a thing as unisex Lady Gaga apparel? I feel like it may be ok for a straight guy to wear something like this: Agree? Disagree? Let me know. Anyway, long list of key-compatible tracks to mix / mash up with: More Than You Know - Axwell /\ Ingrosso Bad Liar - Selena Gomez What Do You Mean? - Justin Bieber One Last Time - Ariana Grande Groove Is In The Heart - Deee-lite Shed A Light - Robin Schulz, David Guetta ft. Cheat Codes Used To Have It All - Fais & Afrojack Waves - Mr. Probz Latch - Disclosure Sonnentanz - Klangkarussell I'll House You
