positions - Ariana Grande

tempo: 72 bpm

the dj's take: Song #4 in episode 58 (8:20):

As we transitioned out of Monster, I used the Marquee tool in Logic Pro X to cut out the plucked strings intro, then moved it over to double up the runway. No percussion means this can overlap nicely over another track with heavier percussion:

And at the end of the song, the move into Bruno Mars' Marry You is about as smooth as it gets. Could get a good reaction from the female demographic.

Some other key-compatible tracks from 70 to 75 bpm:

Blocks - Marshmello
Locked Out Of Heaven - Bruno Mars
All I Do Is Win - DJ Khaled
Handsome And Wealthy - Migos
Holy Grail - Jay-Z ft. Justin Timberlake
First Day Out - Kodak Black
