Spotlight - Marshmello, Lil Peep

tempo: 75 bpm the dj's take: Song #5 in our #55 mix (6:24): We already went over how this flows nicely out of Lupe Fiasco's The Show Goes On with the guitars, but that was pretty straightforward. The transition into Chris Brown's X took some creativity - cut out an instrumental-only section, copy-pasted, and laid it over the ending vocals of Spotlight: If you feel like sprinkling a little rock influence into a pop or hiphop set, this is a solid option. Some other key- and bpm-compatible music: Money Trees - Kendrick Lamar ft. Jay-Rock WHATS POPPIN - Jack Harlow Can't Hold Us - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis I'm Upset - Drake Black Beatles - Rae Sremmurd Relationship - Young Thug ft. Future DNA. - Kendrick Lamar Party - Chris Brown ft. Usher, Gucci Mane Big Pimpin - Jay-Z ft. UGK Let Me Love You - Ariana Grande Where Are Ü Now - Skrillex & Diplo ft. Justin Bieber Feeling Myself - Nicki Minaj Moses - French Montana download or stre

Intergalactic - Beastie Boys

Speed: 106 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #9 in our edition 57 mix (24:32): Those robot voices in the intro can be loud, so I turned up the volume gradually so it wouldn't overpower the final part of Nelly's Hot In Herre . And if you're picking a spot to transition out, you could do worse than after they say 'let the beat mmm drop' - we used that pause to go into Janet Jackson's If . Overall, a solid choice for a louder hiphop-oriented mix in a more festive venue. Some other key- and bpm-compatible music: Jump Around - House of Pain Rapture - Blondie Get Down On It - Kool & The Gang Rapper's Delight - The Sugarhill Gang Changes - 2Pac Dákiti - Bad Bunny, Jhay Cortez I'll Be Missing You - Puff Daddy, Faith Evans Watch Me Do - Meghan Trainor I Wish (My Taylor Swift) - The Knocks & Matthew Koma Feel Right - Mark Ronson ft. Mystikal Peaches N Cream - Snoop Dogg Trouble - Iggy Azalea ft. Jennifer Hudson Doing It - Charl

Monster - Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber

tempo: 73 bpm the dj's take: Song #3 in episode 58 (5:49): As I dug up the video for this post, youtube suggested this in the sidebar: Skip the sleeping pills; half a listen will put you down for the count. In fact, if Monster ever made a sedative-laced anti-energy drink, I would pitch this as the theme music for an ad campaign. That said, it still works as a harmonic follow-up to Drake's Fake Love . And we slotted in Ariana Grande's positions right afterward, so all's well that ends well. 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 Gucci On My - Mike WiLL Made-It, 21 Savage, YG, Migos download or stream Monster: amazon DJ Cheat Sheet playlist (70 to 75 bpm) DJ Cheat Sheet playlist (65 to 70 bpm)
