Never Be Like You - Flume ft. Kai

Speed: 60 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 60 bpm to 65 bpm

The DJ's Take: Leadoff song in mix 36:

Pretty seamless integration with Pursuit of Happiness - Kid Cudi ft. MGMT, Ratatat; worth trying out as you're building up the energy in a pop set - or winding things down. Hopefully he'll be better known for this than his affinity for peaches.

Update: Used this as track #2 in mix 60 (1:02):

May have brought this one in a little abruptly, but good enough. I do like the transition going into Save Your Tears - The Weeknd - double up the tempo, and it sounds a little warped/trippy. I played around with the volume a few times before moving on.
