Cake - Flo Rida & 99 Percent



tempo: 105 bpm

The DJ's Take: The leadoff song in 45 and Lex:



Surprising that this wasn't a bigger hit. Party vibe is undeniable; should play well for people of all ages. Flows nicely into Clean Bandit & Demi Lovato's Solo, and gets the mix off to a strong start.

On a side note, saw this t-shirt on amazon and had a flashback to high school [click the image for the product page]:



This is the album that features one of the great workout songs of all-time:


I remember being on the tennis team, riding shotgun to an away match, and the coach suddenly asked me to take over the steering wheel so he could eat a sandwich. This song was blasting on the stereo as we were going around 80 mph on the highway. Pretty exhilarating. Also a minor miracle that we didn't all die.

Anyway, back to the Flo Rida track - some key-compatible music between 100 and 105 bpm:

Something Just Like This - The Chainsmokers & Coldplay
Paris - The Chainsmokers
I'm In Control - AlunaGeorge
Perfect (Matoma Remix) - One Direction
Cheyenne - Jason Derulo
Classic - The Knocks
Alejandro - Lady Gaga

And from 105 to 110 bpm:

Time to Pretend - MGMT

tempo: 101 bpm The DJ's Take: Track #5 in mix #62 (8:05): I wanted to go a little off-beat in this mix, step outside traditional pop and hiphop, and this one fit the bill. A little on the louder side, and I didn't want to drown out the previous song with the screeching riff at the beginning, so we brought the volume down a little: Bound to bring out the inner-hippie in a crowd; worth a spin for a change of pace.

tempo: 86 bpm the dj's take: Song #11 in session 61 (21:15): And song #3 in Episode 14 (7:39): One of the more underrated party tracks of the past few decades?
