Midnight City - M83

tempo: 105 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #6 in 45 and Lex (8:57):

Midnight City has always reminded me of a cold, industrial version of Peter Gabriel's In Your Eyes:

Has a nice bounce - I've always liked it. In the bigger picture, I'd argue episode 45 may be my best mix to date. Everything just kinda snapped into place, and this track was an important piece. Made it the day after going out drinking until 5 a.m. with a couple friends in Manhattan; should probably do that more often.

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:
