It's Great to Be Here - Jackson 5

tempo: 100 bpm

the dj's take: Song #1 in session 52:

My two favorite parts of this song: the percussion and the bassline. Deceptively funky. Also, don't forget that the slowed down sample is the backdrop for one of the great rap verses of 90s:

If you do integrate this into a mix, I like the idea of using that break starting ~2:04 into the song as a natural exit point. Overlapping this with Mariah Carey's Dreamlover sounded even better than I expected - that could be the beginning of an interesting mashup/instrumental.

Some other key-compatible music:
