Pursuit of Happiness - Kid Cudi ft. MGMT, Ratatat

tempo: 58 bpm

bpm range: 55 bpm to 60 bpm

the dj's take: Track #2 in mix 36 (1:53):

Cool breakdown of how the beat was made:

As for the placement within the mix, it's a nice little bridge from something slower and dreamy into the upbeat pop that energizes a crowd. I bet at least a few people will sing along on any given night; worth a longer-term spot in the rotation.

Some other key-compatible music:
