breathin - Ariana Grande

tempo: 100 bpm bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm , 100 to 105 bpm the dj's take: Song #4 in our Session 11 mix (4:58): Once it gets going, the percussion reminds me of Hold On We're Going Home .

Let Me Go - Hailee Steinfeld, Alesso, Florida Georgia Line, watt

tempo: 103 bpm bpm range: 100  to  105 bpm the dj's take: The final song in our Session 11 mix (21:01): This track is like Neopolitan ice cream - a mix of pop, electro-trop, and country. A pleasant, bouncy listen that would fit right in during a road trip or in a Miami hotel lobby. Cute video too, but here's my alternative version (with some real people who want to be let go): Long list of key-compatible tracks to mix / mash up with: U Don't Have To Call - Usher breathin - Ariana Grande Magenta Riddim - DJ Snake Freaky Friday - Lil Dicky ft.

The Ringer - Eminem

tempo: 60 bpm bpm range: 55 bpm  to  60 bpm ,  60 bpm  to  65 bpm the dj's take: Fun little rundown of the disses on the new Eminem album: I don't know; if I was a middle-aged rapper in an industry dominated by the youth, this is probably what I'd be rhyming about too. One thing's for sure - the sustained buzz means Eminem's as relevant as ever. Definitely worth a spin or two on a hiphop or Top 40 night. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with Issues - Julia Michaels or half-time into: Waves - Mr. Probz (Robin Schulz Remix) Latch - Disclosure ft. Sam Smith Who Dat Girl - Flo Rida ft. Akon Bedroom Floor - Liam Payne Telephone - Lady Gaga ft. BeyoncĂ© 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 Firework - Katy Perry Shed A Light - Robin Schulz, David Guetta ft.
