Rap God - Eminem

  tempo: 74 bpm bpm range:   70 bpm  to  75 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #8 in our 8 Track Rap Sampler (12:10): It's the final track, so you want to start a little earlier for some actual mixing. Big, booming, and apparently a 2015 Guinness Book record-holder (via wikipedia ): A worthy selection in a hiphop set, and one of the rare 6 minute singles that may just hold the crowd's attention the whole way through. Try mixing with: Better Now - Post Malone Pills & Automobiles - Chris Brown Glorious - Macklemore, Skylar Grey We Did It - AREA21 Another Life - Afrojack, David Guetta Both - Gucci Mane ft. Drake Pick Up The Phone - Young Thug, Travis Scott GDFR - Flo Rida Inside Out - The Chainsmokers Private Show - TI ft. Chris Brown At Night (I Think About You) - MNEK Cupid Shuffle - Cupid Applause - Lady Gaga Up Out My Face - Mariah Carey download or stream Rap God:   amazon spotify playlist itunes

Saved - Ty Dolla $ign ft. E-40

tempo: 103 bpm bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #10 in our Beat Salad mix (20:58): If only this had come out about 10 years earlier - could've been the theme song for a major motion picture: Should get a decent reception on a hiphop night (or at a Bay Area house party). Try mixing with: Particula - Major Lazer breathin - Ariana Grande Magenta Riddim - DJ Snake Freaky Friday - Lil Dicky ft. Chris Brown 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.

Try Me - Jason Derulo ft. Jennifer Lopez & Matoma

tempo: 100 bpm bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #5 in Pop Sampler 2.0 (9:10): Probably not something a dj would drop in prime-time on its own. But it goes well with some other reasonably recent hits, so that can extend the vibe a couple extra minutes. Maybe start out with this and build up to something bigger. Key-compatible tracks from 95 to 100 bpm: Sexual Healing - Marvin Gaye Taste - Tyga ft. Offset The Greatest - Sia All The Stars - Kendrick Lamar, SZA Say Something - Justin Timberlake ft. Chris Stapleton Fancy - Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX Water Under The Bridge - Adele Bonita - J Balvin, Jowell, Randy Let Me Love You - DJ Snake & Justin Bieber Sorry - Justin Bieber Try Me - Jason Derulo ft. Jennifer Lopez & Matoma Sexual Healing (Kygo Remix) - Marvin Gaye You Know You Like It - DJ Snake and AlunaGeorge Worth It - Fifth Harmony I'm Sprung - T-Pain Stuck On A Feeling - Prince Royce Sexual Healing - Maxamillion H

Energy - Drake

tempo: 86 bpm bpm range: 80 bpm  to  85 bpm ,  85 bpm  to  90 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #6 in our tenthirtynine mix (13:08): Not exactly exhilarating, but a heavy beat that should keep things moving on a hiphop night. Nice transition by me going into Jay-Z's Izzo (H.O.V.A.) [pats self on back] - starts at 14:58; kind of like a chef's equivalent of blending the salty with the sweet. Some other key-compatible tracks: Lady- D'Angelo Anniversary - Tony! Toni! TonĂ©! Before You Walk Out Of My Life - Monica Feel Me Flow - Naughty By Nature Jesus Walks - Kanye West Call Out My Name - The Weeknd Plain Jane - A$AP Ferg No Limit - G-Eazy ft.
